Big Data is nothing unless it can support analytics

“Big Data is nothing unless it can support Analytics,” asserts the abstract for the Impact of Big Data Enterprises keynote at The Open Group Conference in Philadelphia. Michael Cavaretta, Technical Lead, Predictive Analytics / Data Mining, Research and Advanced Engineering, Ford Motor Company will be delivering this keynote, which highlights technologies and examples of companies using data and analytics from various perspectives. I find the abstract extremely interesting and look forward to this session. Here’s why:

Enterprise Architecture done right drives Enterprise Transformation

Eric Sweden, Program Director, Enterprise Architecture & Governance, NASCIO will be delivering one of the keynotes in the Plenary Session of The Open Group Conference in Philadelphia. I read the abstract for his keynote with great interest. Sweden asserts “Enterprise Architecture” provides an operating discipline for creating, operating, continual re-evaluation and transformation of an “Enterprise.” Not only do I agree with this assertion, but I would add that the proper creation, operation and continuous evaluation of the “Enterprise” systemically drives its transformation. Let’s see how.

Architecting your experience at the hospital

Have you been admitted to a hospital lately? I hope not, because I wish you good health. However, if you have been there, note that your experience is underscored by the complex machinery of the healthcare industry at work. This industry is riddled with the challenges of uncontrolled medical costs, legislative pressures, increased plan participation, and improved longevity of individuals. These challenges are not that different from those faced when defining a comprehensive enterprise architecture.

First Webjam—Impact of Cloud Computing on our job descriptions

You might not know this, but I co-chair the Cloud Governance Project within The Open Group—one of the many projects on the Cloud Work Group’s roster. Recently, the Cloud Work Group introduced the concept of a webjam—an informal way for members with a common interest to have an interactive brainstorm or debate—on a topic of their choice for some of its monthly sessions. The webjam is open to all members of the Cloud Work Group projects. Think of it as a panel discussion—except everyone on the call is part of the panel! I recently coordinated the first-ever webjam for our group. We used, "What will Cloud do to your resume?" as a topic.

Beginning my Journey to HP Discover in Frankfurt

I’m excited. In less than a week, I begin my journey to HP Discover in Frankfurt. I’m making sure I have taken care of everything I need to do to prepare. I have already discussed my upcoming presentation on the world's first technical cloud computing standard. The Open Group—the industry-leading group that released this standard—also published an article on their blog as well. I thought I was all set to go when Andy McCaskey of sdrnews.com contacted me about recording a video focused on my presentation, so more people can look forward to the HP Discover conference.
