Cloud Source Blog
In This HP Cloud Source Blog, HP Expert, Christian Verstraete will examine cloud computing challenges, discuss practical approaches to cloud computing and suggest realistic solutions.

The Machine, a view of the future of computing

HP Discover is always an exciting moment and frankly this year was no exception. Plenty of interesting things were discussed and I'll spend a number of blog entries describing them. Let me start with probably the most exciting one. It won't change our lives in the near future, but "The Machine" is a research project that may change computing forever, and it should be out in the next 5 years. But what is it? That's what i will try to explain in this blog entry, going back to the roots of computing. In a next entry we'll see how it can be used to exploit the information we generate with the "Internet of Things", or maybe I should say, the Internet of Everything.

Take a minute, assess whether your applications are suitable for cloud

Over the next couple days at HP Discover I'll be sharing with attendants a way to check whether their applications are suitable for the cloud. But even if you can't make it to Las Vegas I want to give you the opportunity to do the same. Answer 32 multiple choice questions and know on which cloud your application will run best and what you would need to look at to make it run on another cloud. I describe in details how to do it and how to read the reports. Take a moment, it's worth it.

Transform big data in real understanding, tomorrow’s challenge

As companies transform themselves for the digital world we are living in, gaining understanding of the data accessible to us, will be the next challenge. In the world of the blind, the one with one eye is king. The same is true in the business world. Many enterprises are so focused on their internal operations, they forget to look around them and understand the game in which they are playing. Making it possible to gather that understanding will make the difference between a leader and a laggard. What should we look at?

Cloud, Fog, is the future of IT at the edge or the center?

We've heard about cloud computing for a while. Now "fog" computing seems popular. And so is "edge" computing. It seems companies are looking at branding technologies to address percieved problems with the magnitude of data the world generates each year. And the "Internet of Things" is the big unknown. But what is the problem we are trying to address and what approach makes sense. I'm describing three potential issues associated with the use of fog or edge computing.

Take advantage from information technology percolating in business and society.

As information technology is percolating the whole enterprise and everything we do, enterprises and governments have a unique opportunity to review their business models and create new opportunities by interacting with their customers, their citizens, their users in new ways.That's really exciting. How do organizations take advantage of this, knowing some people are at the wrong side of the digital divide? At a moment enterprises are hungry to create new business opportunities, when governments are looking to interact more closely with their citizens, we have a unique opportunity to rethink what we do and how we do it. Let's look at what is required for that.
