Maximizing your vision on Cloud Computing

My optometrist is advising me to wear bifocals so that I can see objects in the distance and also angle my eyes slightly to read text at closer distances.  Thanks to his advice, I let my visual experience define my choices for my next pair of glasses.  When our appointment was wrapping up, I inquired about an interesting note “Do Not Shutdown” on one of the computer monitors. I understood that my optometrist had transitioned to a New Style of IT in his own way while making a business decision on transforming to Cloud Computing.  In addition to maximizing my range of vision, he also demonstrated a clear short-term and long-term vision on effectively enabling his business with Cloud Computing.  Let me explain how.

Governing Enterprise Transformation with a New Style of Business Intelligence

Page 210 of the book published by D. Appleton and Company circa 1865 reads: “[Sir Henry Furnese] maintained a complete and perfect train of business intelligence.” Thus, term “Business Intelligence” is centuries old, but remains alive and kicking even today. But in recent times, as demand for access to information increases, enterprises are being challenged to process unstructured (and vast amounts of) data from the Internet of Things – in real time, and on an industrial scale.

In apps we trust – or should we? Applications Security Sessions at HP Protect

Software is the new brand that defines the digital customer experience as characterized by Forrester VP, John McCarthy. In the brave new social world of mobile interactions, the omnipresent app becomes the preferred channel of access on the wearable device of our choice. It could even be a ring or a watch. As consumers, we begin to develop a sense of trust. How many times do you check yourself before clicking on a familiar app? “In Apps We Trust,” sort of becomes an implied mantra. But should we trust apps? Just take a look at Adversaries R Us.

HP Garage – The crossroads of simplicity and entrepreneurship

I was in the Silicon Valley recently, and happened to visit the offices of Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, in the building that is now HP Labs. If you tip-toe behind Bill’s desk and put your hand on his chair, you feel inspired with an urge to aim high and achieve bigger and better things. On the desk, I saw a simple writing pad with his own handwriting (a dying art today), and a piece of paper where history was made. The simplicity of the office was a striking contrast to the aura of entrepreneurship that one could feel just standing in the room.

Partnerships that make dreams come true

“DreamWorks Animation (DreamWorks) moves to state-of-the-art data protection and retention, safeguarding creative assets for future audiences” was the title of the HP Discover breakout session where Scott Miller, Senior Engineer, shared the mind-boggling volume of data processed for How to Train Your Dragon 2, which took about 3.5 years to make. Miller detailed technologies that enable the underlying storage infrastructure. Infrastructure, however, is a lot more than just storage. Curiosity took me to the How to Train Your Dragon 2 exhibit at the conference, which showcased the technologies that enable the lifecycle of movie-making—thanks to the HP / DreamWorks partnership that makes dreams come true.
