Intellyx's 2017 Digital Transformation Predictions Guest post by Intellyx Principal Analyst Charles Araujo Once again, we find ourselves at the dawn of a new year. And many would say, not a moment too soon. With a series of tumultuous elections around the world and an unusual number of celebrity passings, it's been a rough year. But there is at least one bright spot from 2016: Intellyx's digital transformation prognostications were close to spot on! As is our tradition, each year we review last year's predictions and make all new fresh ones! This year, it is my turn to review Jason's 2016 predictions and let you know what I see happening in the coming year. A Look Back on a Year of Inflection Points Our predictions for 2016 centered on one thing: inflection points. We predicted that blockchain, IoT security and open source web scale technology would all turn the corner... (more)

Finding Transformational Success by Ignoring Labels | @CloudExpo #Agile #DigitalTransformation

Finding Transformational Success by Ignoring Labels Guest post by Intellyx Principal Analyst Charles Araujo She's smart. He's funny. They're the ambitious ones. That company is an innovator. This technology is a game-changer. As humans, we love labels. Consciously and unconsciously, we slap them on everything - and with good reason. The average human brain must process over 34GB of information each day. There is no way to do that and maintain our sanity unless we organize all that information in some way.

Bad PR Might Sink #ArtificialIntelligence | @CloudExpo #BigData #AI #ML #DL

We've seen many buzzwordy innovations in technology over the last decade, from cloud computing to big data to microservices and beyond - but artificial intelligence (AI) by far has the most buzzword baggage. On the one hand, AI is perhaps the most revolutionary set of innovations since the transistor. But on the other, the bad press surrounding it continues to mount, perhaps even faster than the innovations themselves. We didn't suffer this kind of PR nightmare with the cloud, or the web, or even client/server. In fact, AI has an unprecedented set of PR challenges that threaten t... (more)

Making the Digital Enterprise a Reality | @CloudExpo #DigitalTransformation

Guest post by Intellyx Principal Analyst Charles Araujo The reason I believe digital transformation is not only more than a fad, but is actually a life-or-death imperative for every business and IT executive on the planet is simple: there will be no place for an "industrial enterprise" in a digital world. Transformation, by definition, is a metamorphosis from one state to another, wholly new state. As such, a true digital transformation must be the act of transforming an industrial-era organization into something wholly different - the Digital Enterprise. Digital transformation ... (more)

Couchbase: Battling MongoDB for JSON-Based NoSQL Mind Share in the Enterprise

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief The diverse and confusing NoSQL (‘not only SQL’) database marketplace offers many different types of data stores that serve many different purposes. However, within the document-based store segment, two open source, JSON-centric players have been battling for mind share: Couchbase and MongoDB. MongoDB pulled ahead early – but this race is a marathon, and Couchbase has its eye on the enterprise space, a long-term strategy. Couchbase claims better performance, but performance alone is a poor differentiator, as the award for true performance leader cou... (more)
