Top Stories by Jason Bloomberg

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 Mistake? 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 Cutter IT Journal, published monthly by the Cutter Consortium.

Transforming Business Transformation with Cloud and Agile Architecture

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 from the Amazon Cloud firehose.

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)

Google’s Enterprise Problem

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...

Bringing Intelligence to REST

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 ge... (more)
