This one is going to be a little of topic. Normally you would have noticed that my blogs are techno-functional in nature and are more aligned towards business strategy and growth. The origin of this one is no different but the post itself is little more technical. I have been a technology evangelist for quite some time and when I was doing my research in Big Data area, as the technology is open, what I found is that for a noob, its an extremely lucrative option to try our this technology. yet when I did plunge in it, I found  [ Read More ]

In the enterprise IT scenario, if your firm is not involved in at least 5 proof of concept on the “yellow elephant”, then probably you have a lot to worry and catch up. While organizations are putting their money on Hadoop flavours from different providers, the philosophy behind implementation is various. In this situation a quick 101 to determine when even to consider the big data situation will be a definite need. While we go on dwelling on the business case for the big data, its imperative to look at the business situations that currently we are facing.1. Proliferation of Mobile  [ Read More ]

Looking back in time, one can observe always that a great product or a great concept has a lifeline of its own. Ideas/Products which are oriented to touch people have a longer shelf period than the rest. Android based phones are not the only devices which area build on top of Android platform. Now there are cell phones, TVs, music players, cars, security system, cameras and a full phethora of smart devices which have housed android for their every day juice. Lets have a fair comparision with the product line of of android competitors. Product line Apple iOS Android Windows  [ Read More ]

On a not so lazy afternoon, I bumped in to the terminology “Big Data” once again. This time due to official reasons where we need to formulate the strategy for our big data venture. While I have been exposed to the concept from early last year, for last 2 months, everyone is talking about it vehemently. There are clear trends related to acquisitions and product offerings that give very positive sign about the buzz around the concept. While this blog is not to bore you people with the theory of big data, it’s definitely would make sense to define it  [ Read More ]

Often it’s noticed that the technology graduation happens in such a seamless way that it’s difficult to draw a line between the generation. Cloud computing, which evolved from various concepts like optimization, virtualization and utility computing etc, is bit difficult to explain. However it’s easier to assign attribute the features to it which adds up to the success criteria. Does it mean that all framework satisfying these features, would be successful? The answer is ‘NO’. However necessarily all cloud computing should have these minimum traits to succeed. On-Demand: This is anyway the most lucrative attribute of cloud computing. The resource  [ Read More ]

Now a days everyone is talking about cloud computing. While most of the enterprise try to do it as someone else is doing it, there are a few who pursue this as the extension of their virtulization effort. Cloud computing in most of the enterprise has resulted from the need of improvement of utilization of the infrastructure and need to reduce the  total cost of ownership. Its a different story that it gives rise to the complexity of infrastructure accounting and cost sharing. It seems like, it’s the way to go for almost every enterprise. From my experience of venturing into  [ Read More ]

The biggest thing in the innovation process is to realize the problem. It’s never the solution that matters. As the most difficult thing is to realize the problem or even to admit that it’s a problem. For example – I am a moderately flying professional working in a multi-national company. I would definitely have a trip in a week for business. I had never felt the need of being able to charge my computer on board until one day my laptop dried up all the juice. Once we find out the problem, the solution is the next big thing. The  [ Read More ]

March 11th it was and i took my wife for shopping to Concord Mills. Normally i am a reluctant window shopper. Hardly did she believe that i was proposing this to her. But little did she know my alter-motive. Well concord Mills also has a best buy and what a coincidence it was the launch of apple iPAD 2.0. LOL. To cut the long story short, i had a good 1 hour play date with the new darling. It has at least gone on Diet, lost some weight and fat around the love handles. iPAD 2 is as good as  [ Read More ]

I have been blogging for sometime and believe me the comments that i get from you, excluding the spammers far east, are so thoughtful that these comments can easily be blogs themselves. The other day i got a comment for verticalization of service from Kiran Chitrada, made me realized that it would be worthwhile to capture the thoughts not in bits but in its entirety. I just gave the example of Kiran. But believe me, the ideas in form of comments from all of you, are so thought provoking thats have decided that its high time that those ideas be captured  [ Read More ]
