Guest Post: Beyond Big Data and Benioff’s “AI Spring” to the Dawn of
Big Data, AI, Machine Learning, Hadoop, Predictive Analytics — we hear
these terms every day from companies such as Cloudera, Trifacta and Dato
(formerly GraphLab) that are securing many millions in financing. I believe
that 2015 will be the year when the conversation moves from Big Data to the
Dataware stack. Over the past twelve months we have seen a lot of companies
across the big data spectrum emerge and while the language can be the same,
there are clear product categories that have emerged which describe the
market opportunity and future growth.
This is the Dataware stack. Dataware is the combination of infrastructure,
data intelligence systems tha... (more)
Lee Orrick from F5 sits down to discuss how F5 made the decision to move
their training to the cloud, in order to relieve some of the pain
points—cost, time away from work, shipping of hardware around the
world—from their business. Learn how F5 ensured the cloud would provide the
legal coverage, licensing issues, and security before making the transition.

Orrick from F5. F5 is one of Skytap's customers. I wanted to get the chance
to learn a little bit more about what they do, how they made their decision ... (more)
Noel: Hello, this is Noel Wurst with Skytap and I am speaking with Theresa
Lanowitz today, who is the founder of voke. Theresa is going to be giving a
keynote at this year’s STAREAST conference on May 8, in Orlando, Florida.

Generation Enterprise.” I wanted to speak with her about what exactly
extreme automation involves, trying to define the “next generation
enterprise,” and to find out more about what she does and what voke does.
Theresa, how are you today?
Theresa: I’m great, and thanks for inviting me t... (more)
I recently asked a group of people a question that I thought would raise
quite the debate, but it surprisingly (to me) failed to do so. I asked,
“Have mobile apps been more influential to enterprise software, or is it
the other way around?”
I’d love to say that it was only a slight majority that said, “Mobile
apps are absolutely the ones doing the influencing,” especially since I
think I disagree, but this was not the case. Every response I received
overwhelmingly voted that mobile apps are having a bigger influence on
enterprise software than vice versa. Am I crazy for disagre... (more)
In today’s hyper-competitive markets, businesses must constantly strive
to develop, test, and release better software faster. One of the best ways
we’ve found to make this difficult task possible is by embracing
“continuity”—one of the decade’s fastest growing buzzwords. This
means continuous testing, integration, and delivery.
This past Tuesday, we hosted a webinar with Orasi Software, one of our
incredible partners, to help attendees understand how they can continuously
deliver higher quality software by embracing a number of technologies that
work really well together insid... (more)
