SAP Targets Small(er) Businesses With SAP HANA Express Edition

via @forbes

Can a database company become a software application company? SAP thinks so and the firm has been pushing hard for some years now to ply its wares credibly in front of a developer-programmer audience. SAP’s most recent software release is its SAP HANA Express Edition product. The technology is intended to be a more streamlined version of its in-memory computing platform.

Shopping List — cabbage, onions, bananas and a re-imagined data fabric for a post-flash era of enterprise computing. Hyperconvergence advocate Nutanix has attempted to hit three out of three cloud-A’s with the acquisition of PernixData, a firm that works in scale-out data acceleration and analytics — in addition, Nutanix has closed the acquisition of Calm.io, firm that works in DevOps automation.

NordVPN on test, EastEnders in Las Vegas http://bit.ly/2bNPDKm via @computerweekly
In a world where we need software to ‘just work’ and developers know that the average user attention span is just one or two seconds, it’s always pleasing to find a product with the Ronseal factor. ...

Autonomous Cars Need 'Telematics' Accident Insurance


@forbes @OctoTelematics http://www.forbes.com/sites/adrianbridgwater/2016/08/25/autonomous-cars-need-telematics-accident-insurance/#26c837077017
Connected cars and automous vehicles are changing everything. In the near future, many young people will not have any interest in cars. They will cease to have any desire to learn to drive, develop basis road awareness or any consider the golden age of motoring. As cars go electronic, insurance will too and telematics is about to come to the fore.

SAP: The Data Supermarket Feeds The Data Warehouse via @forbes http://www.forbes.com/sites/adrianbridgwater/2016/09/01/sap-the-data-supermarket-feeds-the-data-warehouse/#4611af0748c5
The variety of data types is almost as baffling as the number of products available in a modern supermarket. SAP claims to have worked to ‘galvanize’ its technology to now ferment (and ultimately pour) a set of solutions forward to help firms build more credible modern data warehouse that can actually cope with the new masses of data out there.

Veritas Technologies wants to explain why cloud computing (for animal veterinary ‘patient’ data records and more) needs resiliency i.e. the ability to provide and maintain an acceptable level of service in the face of faults and challenges to normal operations. Resiliency can apply to a cloud application, a server rack, a network, a storage block or a complete datacenter.

@InternetofBiz @linuxfoundation @Siemens_Energy @IntelDevTools
By Adrian Bridgwater. Do you care what happens inside the ‘guts’ of the Internet of Things (IoT) and is it all way too geeky and tough to understand anyway? Could it possibly be quite straightforward and rather enlightening? A typical Internet of Things user walks into a bar and says, “Actually, I really ‘RLY’ don’t
