CloudExpo | DXWorldEXPO have announced the conference tracks for Cloud Expo 2018, introducing DXWorldEXPO. DXWordEXPO, colocated with Cloud Expo will be held June 5-7, 2018, at the Javits Center in New York City, and November 6-8, 2018, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorld Expo within the program. 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 throughout enterprises of all sizes.

Jonathan Schwartz New Sun CEO

The ponytial is in, according to a report just sent across PR NewsWire. Jonathan Schwartz (pictured), current Sun Microsystems president, will succeed Scott McNealy as CEO, ending a week of intense speculation about a company that has stubbornly stayed mired in lackluster performance mode, guided by a CEO who has stubbornly refused to accede to Wall Street screaming to reduce the company's staff size dramatically. Sun has maintained a workforce in the 30,000 range, with many analysts calling for an ideal company size that is a fraction of that number. In particular, Sun's extensive... (more)

SOA and BPM: It's the Business, Stupid

This article originally appeared in NOW Magazine, which retains all rights. Follow the author at www.twitter.com/strukhoff or www.nowmagazineblog.blogspot.com The harsh reality is that technology executives still tend to think of their platforms, networks, and IT infrastuctures first, even after years of being admonished to think of the business first. So, let’s say it again, think about the business first. In doing so “it’s important to think about information rather than systems,” according to a senior architect interviewed for this story. “Think about what situational inform... (more)
