"Linux is commoditizing the OS layer"

"Linux is commoditizing the OS layer. How far can that line go? I don't think we can see it yet. It's a commodity line, and the commodity line is moving up."

Stormy Peters, HP Open Source Program Manager
[speaking at a Visionary Round Table on Open Source at Cyberposium 2004,
Harvard Business School, January 17, 2004]



"Storage is ripe for commoditization"

"We see storage as an area which is ripe for a new round of commoditization. We now have a lot to invest and we'll be looking."

Michael Tiemann, Chief Technology Officer, Red Hat
[speaking at Cyberposium 2004, Harvard Business School, January 17, 2004]

 

"Open source [is moving] out of the geek space and into the user space."

"We're seeing the open source operating system taking steps on the desktop. OpenOffice is having a huge impact on the global markets. Open source moves out of the geek space and into the user space."

Simon Phipps, Chief Technology Evangelist, Sun Microsystems
[speaking at Cyberposium 2004, Harvard Business School, January 17, 2004]  

 

"The VCs are calling again"

"It'll grow. . .the VCs are calling again. There's been an evolution in the thinking that open source doesn't have a business model."

Dan Frye, director of IBM's Linux Technology Group.
[speaking at Cyberposium 2004, Harvard Business School, January 17, 2004]

"All Oracle's application developers develop on Linux."

"All Oracle's application developers develop on Linux. As soon as we release 10g as a production product, our database developers will move to Linux as their base development program. We 're seeing a tremendous adoption curve of Linux at Oracle, for base and development systems. That represents great news for the Linux community, when a company like Oracle starts using Linux as its development platform."

Dave Dargo, vice president of Oracle's Linux Program Office and the Performance Engineering team within the Platform Technologies Division
[quoted by Lisa Vaas at eWeek.com

 

Torvalds: "Desktop Linux is a Decade Away"

"It's going to take literally five to 10 years before 'normal users' start seeing Linux desktop, but in the technical space it's doing pretty well, especially in companies that can support it already."

LINUS TORVALDS

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
