Jason Bloomberg, Chief Evangelist for EnterpriseWeb, will be speaking at Data
Summit/Enterprise Search & Discovery 2014 in New York City on May 13, 2014.
He will be speaking on the topic MDM: Master Data Management or Massive Data
The abstract is as follows:
“If only we had a single data model, a single view of the truth, then all
our data problems would be solved…” Those words have launched many a
multi-million dollar MDM effort — and yet, such efforts have proven far
more difficult than predicted, leading enterprises far and wide to pour money
into an illusory vision of a perfectly organized data world.
Why can’t we simply settle on a single, stable, universal data model for
the enterprise? The answer: that’s not the way that business – or people
– understand and use information. Expecting any organization to shoehorn
their information into some techie ... (more)
Jason Bloomberg, Chief Evangelist for EnterpriseWeb, published his article
Does Agile Architecture = Agile + Architecture? in a recent edition of the

other policy enforcement points. He asserts that this level of control
actually creates new levels of flexibility. Once this foundation is achieved,
Bloomberg suggests that cloud governance can follow the same pattern.
I had the distinct pleasure of attending Amazon Web Services’ re:Invent
conference last week. AWS and 9,000 of their devoted followers, all drinking

to be the highlights of the news from AWS, my takeaway was different. The
most important story from my perspective is how Amazon sees their Cloud
transforming the enterprise.
AWS invented IaaS, remains the undisputed leader in the market, and their
innovation culture continues to w... (more)
Compared to the insanity of today’s political environment, the world of
Cloud Computing seems downright placid. The calmness on the surface, however,
often hides turbulence underneath.
Take the hullabaloo surrounding comments that Greg DeMichillie, Director of
Product Management, Cloud Platform at Google made on a recent GigaOM podcast
– or more precisely, comments that he didn’t make. GigaOM’s Derrick
Harris asked DeMichillie whether Google Cloud Platform might go the way of,
say Google Reader, an example of a product Google killed in spite of its
market traction because Google... (more)
Whether you're a Cloud Computing aficionado, an enterprise integration
specialist, or an IT executive, it's hard to have a conversation today
without mention of REST. Representational State Transfer, or REST to the
cognoscenti, is an architectural style that treats distributed computing
problems as though they were Web problems. On the Web you have browsers
chatting via HTTP to Web servers, and those servers can work whatever magic
they need to in order to serve up the full wealth we've all come to expect
from the World Wide Web. Take those basic Web patterns, extend them to
