"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible," explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

File Sharing +1 : Harnessing Google’s Cloud Collaboration Architecture

This article forms the final part of our white paper Going Google Enterprise. It completes the document as our first version 1.00, and will be added to on an ongoing basis, acting as a showcase of the Google Cloud solutions ecosystem. Social Intranet – Implementing an Enterprise 2.0 strategy on Google Apps Although the headline message of our white paper is that Google offers a full suite of IaaS, PaaS and SaaS services, quite uniquely so in the industry, our first major benefits point focuses on Google Apps. Google’s collaboration suite is more or less a pound for pound competitor to Microsoft’s entire office and collaboration suite, from Word processor through MS Sharepoint, Exchange and Lync, and is so for only $50 per annum per user. This means it is a very compelling switch to consider even just financially, but then on top of that there is ... (more)

Integration Is the Key to Gain More Value from NetSuite and Salesforce Enterprises often face challenges when integrating Salesforce and NetSuite. But, despite the fact that NetSuite offers an out-of-the-box solution to integrate with Salesforce, companies' data flow requirements are far too complex even for a simple integration.

The US Federal Government Defines Cloud Computing

(May 7, 2009) - I've just spend the last two days in Washington DC in conversations with various US government officials regarding the opportunities for cloud computing within the federal government. During these conversations it has become very clear that the topic of "Cloud Computing" is front and center within the various departmental IT strategies going forward. All the more interesting is that the term is being mandated from the highest levels including the new federal CIO Vivek Kundra who indicated cloud computing was one of the biggest revolutions technology has seen in a long time. So why does it matter what the US federal government thinks of Cloud Computing? Simple, with an IT budget of more then 70 billion dollars a year, the US government represents the largest IT consumer on the planet. With this kind of money at stake, the influence the US government i... (more)

The Top 250 Players in the Cloud Computing Ecosystem

In the run-up to the next Cloud Expo, 7th Cloud Expo (November 1–4, 2010) being held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley, it's time to give my earlier list a complete overhaul. Here, accordingly, is an expanded list of the most active players in the Cloud Ecosystem. I have increased it from the 'mere' 150 I identified back in January of this year, to 250, testimony – as if any were needed! – to the fierce and continuing growth of the "Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing. Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various services and solutions in this round-up are in every case taken from the Web sites of the companies themselves. Omissions to this Top 250 list should be sent to me via Twitter (twitter.com/jg21) and I will endeavor to include them in any future revision of this newly expanded rou... (more)

The PaaS Supply Chain

In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I usually get to catch up on my sadly neglected reading list. First up on my reading list this year: Clockspeed : Winning Industry Control in the Age of Temporary Advantage by Thomas Fine. I am sure many of you have either read Clockspeed yourself or heard it mentioned in various circles. I am fast approaching the end, and while the book itself is not new (originally published in 1999), it seems, based on my own impressions and several other notable reviews, that the lessons of this piece are timeless. I'm not going to do much justice to the book in just a couple of sentenc... (more)
