Before I start with my predictions, let me explain what I mean by a prediction. I believe that predictions should not be about the end of a technology cycle but the timing for when a issue begins to gain traction that will result in industry shifts.  As I pointed out in my book, Smart or Lucky? How Technology Leaders Turn Change Into Success (Josey Bass, 2011), important industry initiatives and changes usually require decades of trial and error before they result in significant product and important trends.  So, in my predictions, I am pointing out changes that are starting. a know...

  Leaders of the OpenStack Foundation presented a profile of OpenStack adoption at the semi-annual Summit in Boston (May 8-10), based on a survey of 1,300 OpenStack developers and users in 78 countries. The Foundation’s key objective: Making clear that production deployments are growing, building on projects begun since 2015, even as some users are testing proof-of-concept (PoC) projects. This blog will show key data points presented in the survey, looking at OpenStack’s challenges and the path forward for customer adoption and consumption models. The OpenStack Foundation’s survey found that OpenStack software is having an impact in datacenters worldwide, showing...

    Mindful that the move to hybrid cloud is accelerating – and that business priorities are increasingly driving IT buying decisions – Red Hat executives at Red Hat Summit 2017 highlighted the business impact of adopting their portfolio of open-source software products. The focus at this year’s Summit: Providing developers and IT operators with tools that reduce the number of individual steps needed to complete many repetitive tasks. Integration of functionality, and unified consoles for monitoring and management are intended to reduce operational costs for the business. This approach addresses the “Dev” and the “Ops” personnel within an IT organization...

Marcia and I would always tell people that we met in high school when we were both 15 years old. But that doesn’t tell the story of a friendship and a business partnership that began in 2003. I was an entrepreneur at a crossroads of my career. I had lost the company I had started in 1992 and walked away from a company that I started in 2002. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do next and I will admit that I was afraid that I would fail. Then one day I got a phone call from Marcia. We...

The world’s data centers are working to adopt Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) – but they are far from reaching their goals. The single biggest challenge in SDI is achieving interoperability between many kinds of hardware. Without that, a data center’s systems become a Tower of Babel, preventing IT system admins from seeing a unified view of all resources – and managing them. Built to leverage virtualized infrastructure, SDI will be easier to achieve if there are more bridges between platforms – leading to better management. This blog focuses on an emerging management standard called Redfish, which is designed to help make...

IBM’s quantum computing technology, developed over decades, is ready for commercialization. It is a fundamentally different approach to computing than is used in today’s systems – and, as such, represents a watershed in computing history. By allowing scientists and researchers to model the complexities inherent in natural phenomena and financial markets, quantum computing is a new approach to the way in which computing itself is done. It is different than Big Data analytics, which finds patterns in vast amounts of data. Rather, it will generate new types of data characterizing phenomena that couldn’t be quantified before. What began deep in the...

Data integration from multiple security point-products is a real problem for many enterprise customers. There are too many threat intelligence feeds – and no easy way to view all incoming data in a contextual way that facilitates interpretation, analysis, and remediation. Therefore, knocking down your organization’s in-house security software silos may become an essential element to improving your cybersecurity profile. Cybersecurity relies on tools to identify an increasing number of threats. However, the proliferation of security point products slows down the ability of organizations to identify threats and respond. For many customers, there is too much input, from too many sources –...

Can IBM Take Machine Learning Mainstream?

Posted by on in IBM
It is clear that Watson, IBM’s cognitive engine, is becoming embedded in just about every tool and application that IBM is selling these days. In its most recent announcement, IBM is now making the Watson Machine Learning (ML) engine available on the mainframe in order to bring machine learning to transactional databases. This ML engine will be available both for on premises use and as a private Cloud implementation. IBM’s announcement had a vast array of capabilities too numerous to mention in a single blog, I would like to mention some of the aspects that I found especially important. The...
