The New Style of IT brings movies to a theater near you

When I go to the movies, I walk in, settle down into world of imagination and walk back out into reality. Annual events like the Sundance Film Festival provide us an opportunity to obtain insight into what it takes to bring movies to a theater near you. At the Sundance House (presented by HP), you’ll see how the New Style of IT weaves a connective fabric of technologies that seamlessly take a movie from the production house to the consumer. Today, technology makes the unimaginable real. Join me in this walkthrough of how these technologies make movies real in each phase of this transformation journey.

Live from HP Discover – This is Big Data.

Hello, Enterprise IT. This is Big Data.



After signing off on the series of posts I authored From the Desk of Big Data, I found a need to write another post based on the panel discussion at HP Discover titled, “Make Information Matter: Make Big Data work for you.” The panelists were asked for their opinions on various assertions made about me and how I play in the enterprise. So, when you have a panel of key stakeholders at a conference like HP Discover (where I have a big role in the city of Las Vegas), do you expect me to stay dormant? NOT!

NASCAR CMO brings home predictive analytics at HP Discover

30 minutes after I concluded my DT3253 session on Predicting the Future using Systems of Engagement, Steve Phelps, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of NASCAR discussed a couple of business scenarios where predictive techniques, such as sentiment analysis, have been used to determine the prevailing mindset of NASCAR fans. In my original post about my session, I sought your input on other scenarios where such techniques could be used. It was an exhilarating experience to see similar scenarios being detailed in Meg Whitman’s keynote address at HP Discover.

Big Data finds a new HAVEn at HP Discover

Upon landing in Las Vegas for HP Discover 2013, I predicted that Las Vegas was going to make Big Data matter at HP Discover. Well, it certainly did so in a big way on the first day. HP announced an expanded Big Data portfolio, designed to enable organizations to gain better insight into their data and deliver real-time outcomes. The acronym — HAVEn — can be constructed using the initials of the enabling technologies: Hadoop, Autonomy, Vertica and Enterprise Security represented by Arcsight and "n" apps built on this platform. But as I take a deeper look at the power of the integrated functionality of these technologies, there is a lot more context and meaning to this term. Let’s see why.

Information is most valuable — when delivered on time

  • When it comes to applying economics to the most valuable asset in the enterprise, timely availability of the relevant information is vital. The same information may not be as applicable if it is presented outside the critical time window without context. For example, knowing where your favorite restaurant is located becomes meaningful when you are hungry. There are multiple time dimensions when it comes to the systemic delivery of information through various channels — including desktop devices of record, mobile BYOD devices of engagement and of course, printers.
