Apple iCloud: Same old cage, new height
"We haven't banished operating system lock-in, in other words. We've just renamed it 'cloud.'" Ha! That's clever. Rise of the Walled Cloud! The Cloud Castles!

MuleSoft Unveils Cloud Integration PaaS Beta
'"As ever, MuleSoft's advantage is being small, theoretically giving it the nimbleness to deliver broader functionality more frequently than the larger vendors without worrying about cannibalizing existing revenue. For example, with IBM you have all sorts of 'potential' revenue conflict between Cast Iron's possible ambitions with queues, integrations, and even ETL software over in their Info group." An alternative to the David-and-Goliath scenario, he suggests, for a large company to buy them and give them the same attention given to Boomi and Cast Iron now.'

Microsoft attempts to cement Azure values at TechEd Atlanta - 5/19/2011 - Computer Weekly
"At the moment, supplier interest is higher than developers'. The promises of PaaS are alluring - integrating with the full Visual Studio toolchain, for example. But developers seem leery of ceding control of their middleware and below over to a supplier (a PaaS provider). I think they are happy with what they have and have not found the motivation yet to think poorly of IaaS. It will probably come soon though."

Java Founder Gosling Joins Google
In addition, Gosling is "clearly a good coder and a legend in the field, as it were," he said. "He's exactly the kind of person Google likes to collect up and use its cushy position to fund and, hopefully, let flower into new innovations."

Massive data volumes making Hadoop hot - Computerworld
"The big picture is that with Hadoop you can have even a one and two person startup being able to process the same volume of data that some of the biggest companies in the world are," he said.

Dr Dobbs | OneInstall Coins "iSaaS" installation Software-as-a-Service
"Managing installations and updates of software has always been problematic. First impressions count and the installation experience is often the first encounter users have with software. Despite this, the ongoing updating and ease of use are often overlooked and ill-treated," said Michael Coté, industry analyst with RedMonk. "With the emphasis on delivering frequent functionality -- new software functionality more often -- developers need an installation and distribution management system that not only makes getting the software easy, but also makes updating the software seamless."

Black Duck Introduces Android Fast Start Program
"Black Duck's latest metrics concerning open-source traction in mobile development confirm the importance of market opportunity for developer traction," said Stephen O'Grady, principal analyst at RedMonk, in a statement. "In concentrating on the Android and iOS platforms, developers are advantaging two differentiated platforms. While Android may be open source and iOS closed, they are both volume platforms, which indicates that developer pragmatism is alive and well."

Adobe-Apple war likely to intensify with release of Wallaby converter
"The spat is personal now and Apple is going after Adobe's key markets in media. The advertising business is worth tens if not hundreds of billions of dollars a year and both want a slice of it," he said. "Apple is pushing for in-app ads that it controls, whereas Wallaby attempts to open up the Apple devices again so they become browsers on steroids, rather than places to run iOS apps."

Experimenting on Themselves
"In its social experiments, IBM has "sucked in virtually all of the concepts from the Web and Enterprise 2.0 worlds," says Michael Coté, an industry analyst with RedMonk. 'I like to think of what they have as your own version of the Web, for behind the firewall.'"

Oracle Speaks Out on Java, One Year Later...Sort Of
"JavaOne used to be the event for Java developers," Coté said, "and a significant one for the development world in general. Folding it into Oracle OpenWorld sends the wrong signal (Oracle is more important than Java: it wasn't SunOne) and probably makes some Java people not want to attend. The Java world is much bigger than the Oracle world and it definitely deserves its own conference, if only in name."

Liferay Announces 100% Year-Over-Year Growth
“What it means to have a presence on the web has changed dramatically in recent years,” said Michael Cote, Analyst at leading industry firm Redmonk. ”The zealous adoption of social networking sites shows demand for a rich, person-infused life online that’s about much more than consuming static content. Companies are discovering that embracing this more social web experience is helping drive business through their external sites and increase productivity on internal web properties. An open source, mature platform like Liferay has proven itself here. The company and community are keeping good pace with web innovations and the patterns of use, updating, and growing its portfolio to give platform users what’s needed to create these contemporary web offerings.”

Analysts: NetBeans' Dumping of Ruby on Rails 'Predictable,' Future of NetBeans in Doubt? -- Application Development Trends
"As the official note mentions, it's a question of engineering resources (read: people either left, Oracle doesn't want to provide budget, or both)," Coté says. "And while Oracle says they're happy for the community to carry the Ruby torch, I doubt that will happen. IDE work is difficult and requires much time and money, even if the final result is free."

Feds Get E for Effort with Open Source
“It's important to keep in mind that open source doesn't always ensure good software or software that you want. You don't want a blanket policy of using only open source or mandating some percentage of open source,” says Coté. “You'll end up with stuff that may not always be the best option: just like if you had a blanket policy of using only closed source.”

GoGrid Offers Hosted Private Cloud
"A valid question could be, 'Why aren't all clouds like this,'" he wondered, suggesting that most users would like a more secure and reliable cloud service. "At the end of the day, I'd rather see these things called something like 'more secure cloud.'"

IBM's Mills Ahead of Technology Curve
A short piece profiling IBM's Steve Mills, GM of Software Group and the Systems and Technology Group - "He is well spoken, frank, and always willing to get down to a level of technology and market detail that I don't expect from all executives at his level," said RedMonk's Coté. "He [also] seems well liked in the company compared to executives at other high-level companies -- there are few IBMers who'll bad-mouth him after a long night in the bar."

Austin app startup explodes on scene
"Most large businesses initially created mobile applications that were smaller versions of their websites. But that first wave is over, and enterprises are now focused on developing mobile applications that are more functional for users of smartphones and tablet computers, said Michael Coté, an Austin-based analyst for RedMonk."

Disney's Earnings Leak Sprung From Goofy Mistake

"With Ohloh's database, Black Duck can ease the friction of commercial adoption of open source technologies by commercial organizations and provide developers with more and better intelligence about open source project health. This is a win for the company and communities alike."

HP-SAP Merger Talk Considered Far-fetched - PCWorld Business Center
"Most everyone I talk to agrees that HP needs to get their software act together." HP has some excellent software assets, such as its testing products, but "there isn't a sense of a unified software strategy like you have with, say, IBM," [Coté] said. While HP generates north of $100 billion in revenue each year, they aren't known for much more than expensive printer ink, "decent servers, and niche software products that seem to work in isolation," he said. "If you wanted to be an 'HP CIO,' there's not much of an ethos, road map, or sort of 'brand' to sign up for."

SCO to sell off Unix business assets
Referring to previous company announcements on secured funding for operating, administrative and litigation expenses, RedMonk analyst Michael Coté thinks this is just another way to generate more money. “It looks like they want funds to support the customers they still have and pursue revenue through litigation by going after Novell and IBM, among others,” he said.

IBM vs. Microsoft: The Big Iron Battle
"I don't think IBM is especially interested in managing Windows on the zEnterprise," Cote said. "Technologically it wouldn't work out [because IBM can't access the source, Steve Mills claimed], and they probably are unwilling to do whatever it would take to make Microsoft help them out with it. But I think in the wider context of things, IBM's not really out to help Microsoft out really."
