Part of that is solving a real customer pain point, but it’s also about challenging your engineers. You can be successfully solving the low-hanging fruit problems most of the time, but then you don’t necessarily attract the highest quality engineering talent."

Serverless computing could unleash a new startup ecosystem
"The thing about abstraction is that it simplifies operations on one level, but it also creates a new set of requirements, some expected and some that might surprise as a new way of programming scales. This lack of tooling could potentially hinder the development, but more often than not when necessity calls, it can stimulate the development of a new set of instrumentation."

"“Generally speaking, when a company chooses to reduce the amount of financial detail it shares on its key strategic initiatives, that is not a good sign. I think one of the justifications put forward is that is becoming difficult to differentiate between cloud and non-cloud revenues. If that is indeed what Oracle is claiming, I have a hard time buying into that argument. Its competitors are all moving in the opposite direction,” he said."

Adobe CTO leads company’s broad AI bet
"It’s actually a classic software platform play, whether the service involves AI or not. Every cloud company from Box to Salesforce has been exposing their services for years, letting developers take advantage of their expertise so they can concentrate on their core knowledge. They don’t have to worry about building something like storage or security from scratch because they can grab those features from a platform that has built-in expertise and provides a way to easily incorporate it into applications.

The difference here is that it involves Adobe’s core functions, so it may be intelligent auto cropping and smart tagging in Adobe Experience Manager or AI-fueled visual stock search in Creative Cloud. These are features that are essential to the Adobe software experience, which the company is packaging as an API and delivering to developers to use in their own software."

Kubernetes stands at an important inflection point
"One thing everyone seemed to recognize at KubeCon was that in spite of the head start and early successes, there remains much work to be done, many issues to resolve. The companies using it today mostly still fall under the early adopter moniker. This remains true even though there are some full blown enterprise implementations like CERN, the European physics organization, which has spun up 210 Kubernetes clusters or JD.com, the Chinese Internet shopping giant, which has 20K servers running Kubernetes with the largest cluster consisting of over 5000 servers. Still, it’s fair to say that most companies aren’t that far along yet."

NetSuite on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure: What It Means for Customers
"But now, at NetSuite’s customer conference last month, NetSuite has announced its plans to migrate its application suite to OCI.

The fact that Oracle now owns NetSuite does not take away from the significance of this announcement. Although NetSuite has always been built on Oracle’s database, it has only been using the database for physical storage. (Salesforce takes a similar approach.) NetSuite built all of its administration and provisioning tools, including multitenant management, on top of the database. Although Oracle is currently in process of moving its Fusion customers to OCI, the move by NetSuite is a much larger workload—with tens of thousands of customer instances to migrate. If NetSuite and Oracle can accomplish this migration—and NetSuite executives repeatedly assured us that it will—it will be a major proof case establishing OCI as a platform for cloud ISVs."

Progress Report - Microsoft wants to enable the digital feedback loop with its Biz Apps and more - by @holgermu
"On the concern side, Microsoft is late to the ERP suite game. It certainly has put the leadership team in place, now it comes to delivering. 2018 already saw the ERP market leader announce an on premises product, a key lesson learnt that when you don’t develop fast enough, customers will dictate the platform."

News Analysis - Oracle wants to make the whole cloud stack autonomous - by @holgermu
"MyPOV – When Ellison announced the self-autonomous database at Oracle OpenWorld in fall 2017, something was missing: The application of the same principles to the overall technology stack. After all – what is an autonomous database good for, when it gets compromised by network security issues that do not have the benefits of autonomous capabilities. So, this is a key follow up announcement."

Intel’s latest chip is designed for computing at the edge - by @ron_miller
"As we develop increasingly sophisticated technologies like self-driving cars and industrial internet of things sensors, it’s going to require that we move computing to the edge. Essentially this means that instead of sending data to the cloud for processing, it needs to be done right on the device itself because even a little bit of latency is too much."

"Being a CFO of a concrete company with no visibility into inventory across locations isn't fun. Dakota Red's CFO changed all that with a move to Acumatica. But could a cloud ERP move address his company's vertical needs?"
