    David @BTR

Also, the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to work trend, along with more smartphones and tablets that require wireless connectivity in the workplace, has increased the level of concern for many IT managers and executives.

    James Bourne

    The database wars are about to kick off in spectacular style. Not just Oracle vs SAP – as Big Red announced its new in-memory database at the start of this week – but relational vs NoSQL. Oracle and SAP have been making plenty of noise about their in-memory capability; SAP co-CEO Bill McDermott once claimed that its HANA technology was “the fastest growing software product in the history of the world”, whilst in his recent event keynote, Larry Ellison claimed that data would move at “ungodly speeds” in the Oracle 12c database. But that’s all relational, SQL database technology - and the NoSQL brigade is coming up fast.

    Ovum StraightTalk

    The New South Wales state government in Australia is taking visionary but practical steps towards cloud services adoption via a program of pilot projects.

    James Bourne
