Cloud is a Technology Game Changer, it has dramatically changed how we think about and utilize services. Cloud facilitates rapid deployments due to quick availability of scalable services. It provides the high service velocity to manage changes incrementally and less time for provisioning storage and applications. Cloud can enhance productivity by providing the infrastructure or application platforms and related tools to respond to customer needs faster, giving organizations an edge over others that have not assessed such mechanisms. In addition, the on-demand capabilities can lead to efficient utilization of resources. I have seen applications that traditionally would take months to deploy, being rolled out in several weeks due to the Cloud and new environments being set up very quickly , the key is to carefully assess existing capabilities and focus on service and...

Mobile Cloud and Big Data – Cloud Power to the Next Level

I worked extensively in the telecommunications area to lead large, innovative nationwide mobile application and portal rollouts that included mobile platforms, applications, databases, services and integration mechanisms. With the explosion of the Cloud and Mobile Cloud, the entire digital landscape is changing. With 4G, bandwidth and latency issues are on the path of being progressively addressed. Not just traditional computers, but mobile devices are accessing Cloud and Big Data services like never before. Smartphones and tablets are the high growth areas in mobile computing. S... (more)

Lightning in the Clouds, Big Data

Cloud computing has been marketed as one of the key advances in technology and every day we hear about new areas where cloud services are being utilized. Cloud is the bright shining star that is being leveraged for it's elastic, on-demand, resource pooling capabilities. However there have been Cloud outages recently that have adversely impacted businesses. These outages highlight the risks of the Cloud and bring into focus that such risks need to be effectively managed. Cloud outages are like lightning in the Clouds, lightning can cause problems where it strikes and preparation i... (more)

Big Data and Cloud - Managing the Explosion of Data

There is a data explosion occurring in the world. As more and more data is being collected, the challenge is how to use it effectively and securely. Data that is being created is not just transaction oriented and is not structured. Such data cannot be managed effectively with some data management systems since traditional systems cannot process such data. Big data requires adequate storage and distributed processing. Big Data also injects heterogeneous data types that need proper integration into the existing infrastructure. Social networks have been generating tremendous amount... (more)

Cloud Computing and the Olympics

The London Olympics are not using the Cloud. Cloud computing seems a good match for the Olympics for provisioning a scalable and on-demand architecture quickly, and then taking it down after the event. That is precisely what the technology supports. The integration and deployment of the infrastructure for the Olympics is a big program with hundreds of servers due to the various events and related technology needed to support them. This can cause technologists to take a more conservative path to manage risks and stick to utilizing existing technologies. An event like the Olympic... (more)
