Another day, another Salesforce acquisition. Just days after closing the hefty $15.7 billion Tableau deal, the company opened its wallet again, this time announcing it has bought field service software company ClickSoftware for a tidy $1.35 billion.

What We Can Learn from the Capital One Hack
"“SSRF has become the most serious vulnerability facing organizations that use public clouds,” Johnson wrote. “The impact of SSRF is being worsened by the offering of public clouds, and the major players like AWS are not doing anything to fix it. The problem is common and well-known, but hard to prevent and does not have any mitigations built into the AWS platform.”

Johnson said AWS could address this shortcoming by including extra identifying information in any request sent to the metadata service, as Google has already done with its cloud hosting platform. He also acknowledged that doing so could break a lot of backwards compatibility within AWS."

Google’s Maya Kaczorowski on Where Responsibility for Container Security Begins and Ends
"Google’s view of container security falls under three categories: infrastructure security, which involves how organizations’ container development environment is secure, Kaczorowski said. This involves network policies, user-identity management, secret management and other similar policies. The second category is what Google calls the “software supply chain,” which covers making sure organizations’ containers are built and deployed securely,” Kaczorowski said. In this way, the second category involves “knowing where your images are coming from scanning them for vulnerabilities and checking that they meet your requirements before you deploy them into your into your environment,” Kaczorowski said. The third category applies to container runtime security and “making sure that your containers are secure to run,” Kaczorowski said."

Why Customer Experience Should Dictate Your Digital Transformation

Burning Down the (Messaging) House
"Why is that? Messaging Documents/Houses are consistently:

Narcissistic. They reflect what vendors want people to hear, but rarely provide the context as to why they should care.
Undifferentiated. They have so many messages, without any comparative quality, that it is hard to find what really matters. Even the top level messages suffer from this.
Forgettable. Again, the volume of messages “information’ in these documents is overwhelming. By the time you get to the end, it’s hard to remember anything (see “undifferentiated”).
Ignored. They usually get created around an ‘event’ (e.g. new product). And after a burst of energy, are quickly ignored (see “forgettable”). I’ve yet to find anyone who audits materials against their messaging documents. I’m pretty sure I know what the results would be."

The irony is that it usually predicts product issues and delays, and that is not the case for ADP at the moment. When the cat is out of the bag, you need to keep talking about how it is doing, developing etc. One of the big mysteries of my analyst career."

Yes, they probably have a deeper competency in SAP than your team does, but you need to be the one to manage their resources, expectations, and deliverables. They should report to your project team rather than managing the overall project. And if things aren’t working out and can’t be remediated, don’t be afraid to fire your SAP system integrator."

But to date, the specifics of exactly how that attack went down and who was hit have remained shrouded in secrecy.

This post seeks to document the extent of those attacks, and traces the origins of this overwhelmingly successful cyber espionage campaign back to a cascading series of breaches at key Internet infrastructure providers."

Google and IBM still trying desperately to move cloud market-share needle | TechCrunch
While becoming cross-platform compatible isn’t exactly a radical notion in general, it most certainly is for a company like IBM, which if it had its druthers and a bit more market share, would probably have been content to maintain the status quo. But if the majority of your customers are pursuing a multi-cloud strategy, it might be a good idea for you to jump on the bandwagon — and that’s precisely what IBM has done by opening up access to Watson across clouds in this fashion.
