  • 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?

    How the Cloud is Transforming the IT Industry

    Much of the discussion on the economic impact of cloud computing has focused on the cost savings and increased value for businesses, but the cloud is also impacting the IT industry, as new job roles are being created and the demand for other roles is decreasing. Many IT professionals may soon find themselves needing to transfer their skills and acquire new ones in order to be valuable in a cloud environment. Here’s a look at the impact the cloud is having on the job market and the skills IT professionals will need to develop.

  • Drupal says farewell to PHP 4

    Drupal says farewell to PHP 4

    Well, this certainly wasn't on my radar. Gábor Hojtsy, Drupal 6 lead maintainer, announced that starting March 1, 2014 support for PHP 4 in Drupal 6 will end. I wasn't surprise to hear about Drupal developers dropping support for PHP 4. Instead, I was in shock to hear that Drupal didn't drop support for this ancient version of PHP sooner.

    To put this announcement in perspective, the PHP project developers said their goodbyes to PHP 4 back in 2008 and I personally said my "see ya later" back in 2007. Needless to say, I don't think anyone with merit can complain Drupal is dropping PHP 4 support.

  • Infographic: IT Friction and what can be done about it

    Infographic: IT Friction and what can be done about it

    The attached infographic details a few key points about "IT Friction", the friction that exists between IT and employee. The infographic is based on research and analysis conducted by Forrester Research. In the Forrester Research report titled "Exploring Business and IT Friction: Myths and Realities," it was found that an astonishing 86% of the end-users lost an average of 18 work hours a month because of IT issues. While the debate over IT Friction has yet to be solved, the disconnect between IT and those they service is a topic that almost everyone has an opinion on.  BMC has an interesting blog post detailing the study and reaction to IT issues by end users on social media. We all of course also recognize the increased conflict between IT and users over BYOD policies and sometimes even the lack of BYOD policies.

  • TYPO3 goes for long term support with TYPO3 Version 4.5 LTS

    TYPO3 goes for long term support with TYPO3 Version 4.5 LTS

    I received an email from someone that wanted me to talk about TYPO3 Version 4.5 LTS. The suffix “LTS” stands for “Long Term Support”. For the first time a TYPO3 version will be maintained by the TYPO3 Core Team significantly longer than the usual release cycle would suggest. In 2010 TYPO3 has switched to a fixed 6-month release cycle which means up to now support for a version was only provided for 18 months (only three of the latest three versions actively maintained). The LTS versions will be supported for at least 3 years thus offering a good option for users that don’t need or don’t want to update every 6 months.

  • Open Source versus the Enterprise Solution

    Let me start by clarifying a few things:1) I work for a CMS vendor, for an enterprise CMS.2) I am also a big fan of open source.Yet, I am attempting to write this article with all bias aside; with all generalizations thrown out the window. Without feeling like I am trying to justify this article, I think it is also worth mentioning that the CMS vendor that I work for produces a product that I would avidly use even if I didn’t work for them.Every vendor, whether they are enterprise or open…
