  • Put this one on your radar: Microweber CMS

    Put this one on your radar: Microweber CMS

    Whenever a content management system first appears on my screen, I always look at whether the developers' initial claims are true. In this case, I'm looking at Microweber and its claim that their software offers a "new generation" CMS with "cool features and innovative concepts".  Given that most of the software development in Microweber CMS is recent, from 2012 to present, the goals and claims are ambitious. Impressively, the CMS has already been translated into seven languages so far by its contributors. As word about this CMS beings to spread globally, it's time to dig a little deeper into Microweber.

  • The Big Data IT Challenge: Giving Business Users the Data They Want

    The Big Data IT Challenge: Giving Business Users the Data They Want

    Last December, International Data Corporation presented a top ten list of technology predictions for 2014. Among those predictions, IDC claims that enterprise spending on Big Data analytics services in 2014 will increase by 21 percent over 2013, to exceed $4.5 Billion. Obviously companies are starting to recognize that their vast pools of data hold immense potential.

    But spending money on Big Data and extracting real value from it are two different things. According to research by Gartner published in a 2011 article on ComputerWeekly.com, between 70 and 80 percent of corporate business intelligence projects flat out fail.

    At Gartner’s 2013 Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit, a panel of vendors agreed that more than 70 percent of analytics projects failed to meet expectations. What is the main reason for that kind of failure?

  • Flash Storage: Closing the Price Gap

    Most IT experts will agree that 2013 was the year that flash storage became a near necessity in the mainstream world of enterprise. The reason is that flash holds many competitive advantages over the tradition disk storage method, including faster speeds and reduced energy consumption. As a result many companies have turned to “hybrid systems”, where flash based solid state disks are combined with hard disk drives. Other companies have adopted flash based systems 100%.

    While flash is not the only new form of memory storage, it is by far the best choice. Some people are working on other systems including phase change memory, carbon nanotubes, spin torque transfer, and memristors. None of these are close to being ready for use in enterprise and only time will tell if they will ever become a viable option.

    Of course, flash storage is not without its problems. Among the biggest causes of hesitancy for enterprise has been the higher costs and other technical memory problems. Fortunately, some large scale flash providers have been able to eliminate these disadvantages.
