Laying a Solid Framework for IoT With Enterprise Architecture

By Lesa Moné Stage 4: The Data Center and Cloud Data that requires more thorough processing, and does not require immediate feedback, should be forwarded to the physical data center or supporting cloud-based systems. In the data center or the cloud, more powerful IT systems can analyze, manage, and securely store data. Once data reaches this stage, it takes a bit longer to receive results, but the results will carry a more in-depth analysis than the previous 3 steps. This 4-tier approach to IoT infrastructure and processing will inspire new levels of collaboration in your supporting teams. IT professionals will  work closely with OT professionals, both bringing their domain expertise into data processing and analyzation. Domain experts can teach IT professionals to identify sources of potentially valuable data. IoT promises to reshape entire industries in unpreceden... (more)

Why Enterprise Architecture is Even More Relevant in a Hybrid IT World

Cloud is now a reality in enterprise organizations. While it seems only a short time ago that many organizations were still unsure of the role that cloud would play in their future, it has now become verboten to question its eventuality as the predominant enterprise operating platform. Every organization is now ‘cloud-first’ — at least, that is, if you listen to the press. The reality, of course, is much more complex. Enterprise organizations remain saddled with data centers full of legacy platforms. In truth, however, ‘saddled’ isn’t the right word as much of that so-called legacy technology is doing exactly the job it should be doing at a reasonable cost and with manageable maintenance models. It’s really not ‘legacy’ at all — it’s just part of what will be IT’s continuously evolving technology stack. This fact exposes one of the greatest dangers when it comes to... (more)

Why Enterprise Architecture is not delivering today

The moment we start searching for an Enterprise Architecture (EA)example we begin realising that something is fishy. There is hardly any. Yet, the media abounds in stories about the experiences we had in working towards achieving EA. Some claim success without ever showing an outcome as proof. Trust me they say, but the rest is confidential.   Most positions advertised today are scoped in IT and much too often refer to software architecture. But an IT picture without the ... (more)

Improved Enterprise Data Center Performance

There's a huge drive now for improved enterprise data center performance. Nearly all enterprises are involved nowadays with some level of data-center transformation, either in the planning stages or in outright build-out. We're seeing many instances where numerous data centers are being consolidated into a powerful core few, as well as completely new, so-called green-field, data centers with modern design and facilities coming online. The heightened activity runs the gamut from retrofitting and designing new data centers to the building and occupying of them. The latest definition of data center is focused on being what's called fit-for-purpose, of using best practices and assessments of existing assets and correctly projecting future requirements to get that data center just right -- productive, flexible, efficient and well-understood and managed. Yet these are, by no ... (more)

The Top 250 Players in the Cloud Computing Ecosystem

In the run-up to the next Cloud Expo, 7th Cloud Expo (November 1–4, 2010) being held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley, it's time to give my earlier list a complete overhaul. Here, accordingly, is an expanded list of the most active players in the Cloud Ecosystem. I have increased it from the 'mere' 150 I identified back in January of this year, to 250, testimony – as if any were needed! – to the fierce and continuing growth of the "Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing. Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various services and solutions in this round-up are in every case taken from the Web sites of the companies themselves. Omissions to this Top 250 list should be sent to me via Twitter (twitter.com/jg21) and I will endeavor to include them in any future revision of this newly expanded rou... (more)
