By Bob Gourley Editor’s note: This list first appeared on our site Analyst One. -bg In March 2011 Businessweek quoted Cloudera’s Mike Olson describing a “Cambrian explosion” of corporate analytical technology. Mike really nailed it with that one. With the continuous development of advanced infrastructure based around Apache Hadoop there has been an incredible amount of innovation around enterprise “Big Data” technologies, including in the analytical tool space. This is great for analysts! But it poses some challenges. How do you know which technologies deserve your time and energy? Which firms have something so important that you should push hard to get them into your enterprise? Those are questions we would like to help you address. We have produced The Analyst One Top Technologies List to help you address those questions. This is a short list of firms that can hel... (more)

Ulitzer Provides a Powerful Social Journalism Platform

I was reading a blog post entitled "Confessions of a Ulitzer Addict" by John Funnel this morning as I arrived in the office.

Leveraging Social Media in Your Business

In my last post I explained that before you embark on using social media for your business, you need to first determine your objectives and define your strategy. And this strategic planning does not and probably should not involve any specific social media channel at the outset. A good article that outlines the steps for the planning and strategic upfront work is "10 steps to a practical social media business strategy" by Allen Bonde, where he describes the fundamental and basic steps that must be done upfront, such as creating a mission statement and a marketing plan, assigning ownership and defining policies, all before getting to specific social media channels. Now assuming that you have done your strategy homework, let’s take a look at how we can leverage various social media channels in an integrated and orchestrated fashion (in terms of specific tactics) to ma...

The Future is Here - M2M, Robotics and Mobile Devices

Fort Leonard Wood (a US Army base) had a ribbon cutting ceremony today for their new Robotics University.   These robots do amazing tasks that save lives.  They conduct some of the most dangerous tasks such as identifying and disabling IEDs (improvised explosive devices). I recently read several books about the use of robots in the military and one of the robotics engineers was quoted as saying he loves receiving broken pieces of his robots in the mail.  Why?  Each broken, burned and exploded robot represents a potentially saved human life. On this blog along with content about enterprise mobility, I write a lot about M2M (machine to machine), wireless embedded devices and remote sensors.  These are all fields and technologies closely related to enterprise mobility.  Each of the robots in the picture above communicates with and is controlled by wireless mobile devices...

IBM-Sun Pairing Would Help IBM Get into the Cloud: BusinessWeek

IBM's chances of being a major player in the era of cloud computing would be enhanced by a merger with Sun, says BusinessWeek. IBM can also afford the $6.5BN acquisition that is apparently being discussed since it has $13BN cash hoard, notes BW Senior writer Steve Hamm. In his report published today, the day after Sun announced its Sun Open Cloud Platform at an event in New York, Hamm writes that "IBM would be taking a risk by purchasing Sun…with no assurances that Sun's cloud offerings will take off," but he also stresses that a Sun acquisition "would give IBM a better entree into another segment of the nascent market: providing technology to the companies that operate cloud data centers for large consumer-oriented Web services such as Facebook and Google's YouTube." Sun's CEO Jonathan Schwartz watches a presentation by IBM's Steve Mills at JavaOne 2005 The synergies ... (more)

Twitter: It’s Not Just About Lunch

A recent Sprint commercial about the “Now Network” noted that 26% of viewers had no idea what “twittering on Twitter” means. Yet, it’s clear that Twitter awareness is growing by leaps and bounds. Of course, this doesn’t mean opinions about Twitter are all positive. Many still hold the view expressed in this Twouble with Twitters video. As well, as Steven Johnson stated in his favorable Time magazine piece, “The one thing you can say for certain about Twitter is that it makes a terrible first impression… It's not as if we were all… saying, ‘If only there were a technology that would allow me to send a message to my 50 friends, alerting them in real time about my choice of breakfast cereal.’"  In fact, when I first started using Twitter, I wondered, to borrow words from Andy Warhol, if Twitter was not just a way to become more “deeply superficial.” All that is chang...

US Leaves Its Youngest Citizen Behind in Syria

Yesterday (Sunday) AP reported that "State Dept. issued travel warning on Syria" and this morning (Monday) Reuters filed a follow-up report that "US offers free flights out for employees in Syria." As of this morning, and since July 2010, my abducted daughter Sofia Kircaali, a US citizen, remains in Syria and in harm's way. Fox News: ▸ video ▸ story On Friday, I watched videos on the Internet showing violence inside a mosque one block away from where Sofia currently lives with her mother and grandmother. Twitter updates on Sofia @FuatKircaali I already wrote two blog posts on Sofia's status in Syria. Both posts were read by Washington, by our Embassy in Damascus, Syria, as well as the Syrian government both here in DC and in Damascus. ▸ Open Letter to the President of Syria Bashar al-Assad ▸ Open Letter to the First Lady of Syria Asma al-Assad This morning, on Monda...

My Two-Year-Old Daughter Sofia Facing Life-Long Disability in Syria

The day after my last tweet regarding the lack of any new information about my abducted daughter Sofia since March 4, I received an updated letter on Thursday, April 7, 2011, from the State Department on Sofia's welfare in Syria. Fox News: ▸ video ▸ story Sofia was abducted by her mother from the United States to Syria last July, following her diagnosis of GDD with possible autism. She had 13 remaining medical appointments left at the time of her abduction, none of which she was able to keep. Last week's welfare report prepared by our Embassy in Damascus, Syria, after their second welfare visit to the home in Syria where Sofia remains with her mother and grandmother, showed a bleaker outcome for my daughter than the previous report dated November 2010. At two years and two months of age, Sofia still doesn't speak a single word, make or follow simple hand gestures... (more)
