Sybase Nordic Roadshow

The night before the event at 35,000 ft, traveling due north

The night before the event at 35,000ft, traveling due North... The Sybase Nordic Roadshow is a four track, four location event covering Data Management, Data Analytics, PowerBuilder & Mobility, stopping at Oslo, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki. I am taking part in the Mobility Track and will be able to discuss, the SAP Unwired Platform, Afaria, Mobile Office, SQL Anywhere, the SAP/Sybase vision on mobility and will be presenting a session called 'iPhone and iPad in the Enterprise'. This presentation is a combination of facts, professional findings and thought leadership, with respect the the current and future adoption of the iOS devices into Enterprise companies to mobilise current and future data to Information Workers.

Sybase Nordic Roadshow

These forward thinking companies know that Mobility will transform how we do business, in many ways...

  1. Transform (Beyond extending) Changing Business processes - innovation
  2. Security & Management. OTA & On device
  3. Creation Paradigm - Fast paced
  4. R&D - Research is key
  5. Business first - New Opportunities

Oslo AirportI left cold Heathrow on a dark Sunday night, not knowing if the reception I would receive in the heartlands of Nokia, would be a might colder one. Specifically because of my iOS specialty, rather than the 0c temperature that welcomed us into Norway.

On the British Airways flight to Oslo I was interested to read an article in BA's Business Magazine on LTE - Long Term Evolution - 4G. 4G the next generation of mobile phone data technology, already exists in parts of Scandinavia and is going live in some US cities soon. In the UK cellular provider, O2 which is part of Telifonica is testing LTE at their Slough location. LTE is 35 times faster than the 2Mbps average current home broadband connection. That is also ten times faster than the current 3G phone or dongle. That will change things for sure when it becomes ubiquitous and I'm looking forward to that day.

Japan DX Pavilion at @CloudEXPO Silicon Valley
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...

While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
