SaaS Matters: Key Caveats for SaaS Contracting
"In these cases, enterprises should challenge their various SaaS vendors to include the ability to scale up and down as needed during the term of the Cloud subscription agreements. That means, as usage decreases, SaaS vendors should provide the customer the ability to reduce the commitment to align with actual need at that point in the term, with a corresponding reduction of the fees or a credit towards future usage."

IBM ML comes to Swift - IBM has been closely working with Apple on Swift, pretty much since the launch of Apple's new programming language. The joint solutions are built on the platform, and given the IBM push on cognitive / Watson / ML / AI, it's key that developers on the Swift platform that are building applications in and for the IBM ecosystem can leverage IBM AI / ML services for the iOS applications. Something joint customers expected and IBM now has (finally) delivered. I had some good conversations with early adopters."

10 Ways Machine Learning Is Revolutionizing Manufacturing In 2018
"Improving semiconductor manufacturing yields up to 30%, reducing scrap rates, and optimizing fab operations are is achievable with machine learning. Attaining up to a 30% reduction in yield detraction in semiconductor manufacturing, reducing scrap rates based on machine learning-based root-cause analysis and reducing testing costs using AI optimization are the top three areas where machine learning will improve semiconductor manufacturing. McKinsey also found that AI-enhanced predictive maintenance of industrial equipment will generate a 10% reduction in annual maintenance costs, up to a 20% downtime reduction and 25% reduction in inspection costs.

And should it? Mr. Garrehy has already made it clear that the Kenandy product will live on, and has further speculated that the combined company will likely have two distinct product lines, serving at least somewhat different markets. While not cast in stone, perhaps the Kenandy ERP will move in the direction of light manufacturing and distribution, while the Rootstock product will support heavy-duty, more complex manufacturing."

Serverless is the New PaaS - by @sogrady
"Much as PaaS was a logical functional successor to middleware, serverless can and has been argued to be the new PaaS. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the functional distinctions, because serverless functions are built in a fashion quite distinct from more traditional PaaS applications, let alone their middleware ancestors. But if we zoom out, the long arc of application development evolution is more about layers of abstraction than execution models. In that sense, serverless can be seen as a logical next step after what used to be called PaaS."

Voice and the Future of the Platform Companies - by @fintanr
"We have entered into an era where massive scale is a differentiator – and companies are happy to share the underlying work that has facilitated them operating at scale. Much of the emerging technology landscape, from cloud native to artificial intelligence, is being shaped by projects that companies, like Google and Facebook, have had a hand in either inspiring or creating. But if their revenue streams begin to be threatened will the model of openly publishing research and contributing to various projects change?"

"Workplace diversity is an important topic, but one that can be tuned out. At Xerocon 2017, a panel brought new data from Xero to light. Some of the data was troubling - but I also heard fresh ideas on going forward."

Salesforce is latest big tech vendor to join the Cloud Native Computing Foundation - by @ron_miller
"Salesforce announced today that it was joining the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), the open-source organization that manages Kubernetes, the popular open-source container orchestration tool. It is the latest in a long line of big name companies, joining the likes of AWS, Oracle, Microsoft, VMware and Pivotal, all of whom joined earlier this year."

What’s Scary About Amazon Web Services - by @sogrady
"As it turns out, that wasn’t the new services, nor the unparalleled velocity at which they continue to be introduced. Both are impressive, to be sure, and under other circumstances would be grim news for other market participants. But if re:Invent demonstrated anything, it’s that AWS competitors should be far more concerned instead about what’s happening around the introduction of all of the new features."

HPE Re-Discovers itself, but is it on the right track?
"However, HPE has strength in certain verticals and is bringing to market products and services that focus on those areas. For example, its new Express App Platform is for manufacturers that want Cloud benefits in an on-premise infrastructure that is tailored to their specific needs and technology. Competing with the other big hardware vendors in specific niches is more likely to be successful than a broader market strategy."

Two decades of HR Tech - by @dealarchitect
"After my last book, Silicon Collar about automation, I get the sense HR is in for a huge change over the next few years. Automation via AI, robotics, drones, wearables – is changing the nature of work in every profession. We will see new job titles emerge we did not anticipate just a few years ago. More of the workforce will be on platforms, in franchises and other “extended enterprise” formats."

Event Report - Pivotal SpringOne 2017 - It’s all about PCF – and some Spring - by @holgermu
"On the concern side, while it was almost refreshing not to hear a mention of Machine Learning / AI at a conference in 2017, it still means that Pivotal will have to give its customers and users a solution in this important space. But fair enough, serverless first. Equally the BigData / Hadoop relationship is not mended with the leading vendors, giving Pivotal’ s database history… but better to fix this sooner than later… and the only IaaS hold outs really have been AWS and Oracle… but it is likely that Pivotal is out to get those players in 2018."

News Analysis - Microsoft and SAP join forces to give customers a trusted path to digital transformation in the cloud - by @holgermu
MyPOV – No surprise – Microsoft and SAP will drink their own champagne and use each other products / services… the emphasis on clear roadmap maybe some self-reflection on the fact that there has not been too much roadmap traction in the past 18 months. Good to see co-created and supported offerings and services – that’s what prospects and customers expect from both vendors when they partner."
