By Bob Gourley Splunk and Cloudera are both firms I like and have worked with and hope to work with long into the future. I try to track their capabilities and enjoy that because both are consistently innovating. Now I’m embarrassed to say I totally missed something going on between those two firms. My friend the highly regarded enterprise thinker Chris Hill of Splunk pointed me to a 9 May 2013 press release that outlines a strategic alliance between Splunk and Cloudera that I should have highlighted here long ago. Sorry for the delay, but please check this out and ponder on how virtuous it is when great firms like these work together. The following is from: http://ctolink.us/18GpGTF Splunk and Cloudera Ink Strategic Alliance to Bring Together Big Data Expertise Market Leaders in Operational Intelligence and Hadoop Join Forces to Provide Answers to Big Data Challeng...

Cloud Computing: What Are Private Clouds?

Jian Zhen's Blog The world of clouds these days is full of definitions and counter-definitions. There are many posts that try to define the concept of cloud computing; many that try to distinguish utility computing, grid computing and cloud computing; many that try to define public vs private clouds; and many that dismisses the notion of private clouds. John Foley, in his article “The Rise Of Enterprise-Class Cloud Computing“, referred to private cloud as an oxymoron, That’s an oxymoron since cloud computing, by definition, happens outside of the corporate data center, but it’s the technology that’s important here, not the semantics. But by whose definition? The industry as a whole haven’t even been able to nail down a concrete definition of cloud computing.

Is the PR Business Extinct? Yes

http://twitter.com/fuatkircaali The short answer is yes. In our estimation, roughly 70% of today's PR firms with their traditional public relations and communications business structures will not survive the fast-approaching social media avalanche. The remaining 30% that need to reinvent their position real fast in their newly morphed industry will prosper, compared to where they were and what they were doing before. For publicly traded companies, current rules dictate that information can be made public by a press release or by a telephone conference call but not simply on a website. Ninety percent of today's PR firms are still in business simply because of this single rule. For the first time three years ago, in 2006, Sun Microsystems CEO Jonathan Schwartz asked the SEC to change this rule. Well, the new White House is already posting the President's weekly address...

Who's Making Book on the Google-DoubleClick Deal Going Through?

Well, now we'll get to see just how powerful Microsoft really is. The test is whether it can stop Google from taking over DoubleClick and becoming, in Microsoft's words, the "dominant pipeline for all forms of online advertising" as well as "the largest database of online user data in the world." The Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights held a webcast two-hour hearing Thursday afternoon on Google's proposed $3.1 billion acquisition of DoubleClick, the advertising company Google outbid Microsoft for. Google's general counsel David Drummond turned up as did his opposition, Microsoft's general counsel Brad Smith, Thomas Lenard, senior fellow of the Progress and Freedom Foundation, Scott Cleland, president of Precursor LLC and Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center. The subcommittee ... (more)

John C. Stame's "Precipio" Blog We are seeing more being written about Cloud computing and cloud platforms today, and there is strong validation that the future of computing will include significant innovation and value in web/cloud platforms.
