David Norfolk reviews “The Chaos Factory” by Adam Wasserman, an excellent historical guide to how IT got the way it is today.
IBM is actively encouraging the movement of mission critical workloads onto suitable public clouds using what it calls Intelligent Workflows.
A cautionary tale about cloud data migrations as NASA moves its Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) storage onto an AWS Cloud.
A cautionary tale about the importance of testing against user expectations, from Bloor analyst David Norfolk.
BMC still seems to be in the process of re-inventing itself and its new acquisition of Compuware brings major new Mainframe capabilities.

My observation is that a lot of collaboration initiatives never really deliver, and my work experience is that being able to do everything myself better than anyone else is the recipe for personal career success! Nevertheless, I really do believe in collaboration.
