Cloud Expo 2016 New York at the Javits Center New York was characterized by increased attendance and a new focus on operations. These were both encouraging signs for all involved in Cloud Computing and all that it touches. As Conference Chair, I work with the Cloud Expo team to structure three keynotes, numerous general sessions, and more than 150 breakout sessions along 10 tracks. Our job is to balance the state of enterprise IT today with the trends that will be commonplace tomorrow. Mobile Computing, Big Data and Analytics, the Internet of Things, Platforms and Microservices and Containers, DevOps, and WebRTC are all part and parcel of Cloud Computing today. But First... We started this year's conference on a solemn note, with a video tribute to former Conference Chair and SYS-CON Media Editorial Director Jeremy Geelan, who recently lost a truly heroic, seven-y...

In Remembrance of Jeremy Geelan By @IoT2040 @CloudExpo

I'm going to cry tonight, long and hard. I'll do so as I remember and mourn Jeremy Geelan. I knew Jeremy for almost 20 years, from the time he showed up one day at Cloud Expo's headquarters in Bergen County, New Jersey, and went to work. The show wasn't called Cloud Expo then, of course - it was still known as Java Edge, a pioneering event that grabbed developers, architects, and enterprise IT users alike for twice-yearly confabs.

How Did Ellison-McNealy Affect Oracle-Sun?

One question about the Oracle-Sun deal, not scandalous except perhaps in the eyes of IBM executives, concerns the personal relationship between Larry Ellison and Scott McNealy. The deal, to me, shows how little power shareholders (ie, owners) of public companies really have in the face of personal relationships. I believe IBM was ready to pay a max of 9.40 per share for Sun, an offer that was vehemently castigated by Sun Chairman Scott McNealy, according to many reports. Yet Oracle came swooping in to pay $9.50, after only four days of discussion. Of course, Sun shareholders are ... (more)

Cloud Computing & Broadband Competitiveness

Broadband infrastructure has emerged as an issue of national competitiveness. The countries that meet its challenges best will be the winners in the century that lies ahead. Enterprise Cloud Computing will play an increasing role in this story, although for now, the big emphasis remains on individual consumer activity. The big issues are, in order of increasing importance: Wired bandwidth capacity Wireless bandwidth capacity Markets Government control The first of these issues may have been solved more than a decade ago, when optimism that the dot-com boom was going to last for...
