Behind the Scenes, SANta Claus Global Cloud Story

Cloud Expo New York There is a ton of discussion, stories, articles, videos, conferences and blogs about the benefits and value proposition of cloud computing. Not to mention, discussion or debates about what is or what is not a cloud or cloud product, service or architecture including some perspectives and polls from me. [Santa Photo Via ABC news] Now SANta does not really care about these and other similar debates I have learned. However he is concerned with who has been naughty and nice as well watching out for impersonators or members of his crew who misbehave. In the spirit of the holidays, how about a quick look at how SANta leverages cloud technologies to support his global operations. Many in IT think that SANta bases his operations out of the North Pole as it is convenient for him to cool all of his servers, storage, networks and telecom equipment (which ... (more)

CRM Market Grew 12.5 Percent Globally in 2008 - Gartner

Apparently, companies realize that front office solutions that help capture more buyers and understand their needs are critical to their success regardless of the recession. Hopefully, these companies are focused just as much on the process and training as the technology. CRM is a long term strategic play and should be viewed as part of a shift to a more disciplined approach to revenue management. Growth Driven by Technology Focused on Customer Retention, Analytics and On-Demand Solutions STAMFORD, Conn., July 15, 2009 — Worldwide CRM market revenue totalled $9.15 billion in 2008, a 12.5 percent increase from 2007 revenue of $8.13 billion, according to Gartner Inc.

Choosing Between Azure and VMM Private Clouds

I’ve spent the past day reviewing all that’s floating around the Interwebs on the Azure announcements from the WPC this week. There are definitely a lot of nice nuggets to digest and stuff that’s going to take a while to process. Most of the Azure talk at WPC has been, as expected, about how partners can benefit from and build solutions on top of Azure. That’s a compelling message and one I think Microsoft got 100% correct. Now if only they’d franchise Azure we’d really be cookin’ ;). But what about enterprise customers using Azure? Since enterprise virtualization is the overwhelming topic here on The Virtual DC, I’m going to focus on that rather than the partner angle. One thing that struck me straight away today was a comment from Bob Muglia in a CNET interview: Businesses and hosters will want to offer their own clouds he said, and Microsoft will have tools for ...

Five Reasons Google Apps is Still Better than Notes

Thank you for your feedback to our last post. We are thrilled that through the use of blogs and twitter, we can engage the community in a nearly real-time conversation. What I find odd, however, is the fact that a leader of another large company can call for the “eradication” of Lotus Notes to his partner community, but it was David Hoff’s “Top 10 Reasons I Left Lotus Notes for Google Apps” that sparked the ire of the Lotus Notes faithful. We clearly hit a nerve here and wanted to take an opportunity to respond to some of the feedback. First of all, let me say that Cloud Sherpas is made up of several former Lotus Notes Professionals. In my previous role with a large Fortune 100 company, I was responsible for the implementation, support, and day-to-day management of a 30K Lotus Notes and Domino user base. I actually helped that company migrate to the cloud right bef... (more)

Exposing a WCF Service in Silverlight

I am having a blast with the series where I am updating my simple Mix 09 Business Application demo.  In this part, I wanted to consider the scenario that I hope is a common one.  The developer writes their Silverlight app using the RIA Services pattern and the application becomes wildly successful.  So successful in fact there is a demand to put a services head on top of the same application logic to facilitate writing a bunch of other clients.  This is the sort of pattern we see happening with applications like Twitter and Sharepoint.   You can see the full series here. The demo requires (all 100% free and always free): VS2008 SP1 Silverlight 3 RTM .NET RIA Services July '09 Preview Also, download the full demo files and check out the running application. To start with, let’s take the application from the early parts of the series and add a simple WCF head for it.  F... (more)

Infopedia – Microsoft Salesforce 2.0

One of the most powerful IT case studies I have read recently was the Microsoft one for their own in-house `Salesforce 2.0′ platform, what they call Infopedia. As detailed in the full white paper on this topic of Cloud 2.0, when it is applied to the sales activities of an organization it`s called `Salesforce 2.0`. A powerful focus area as you can imagine, and so given one of the flagship examples of how and why to do it is Microsoft`s own adoption of their own own new products, is a compelling marketing scenario for sure. Get Sharepoint FAST! Critically what`s really important isn`t actually specific to Sales, although they are a great example. Instead Microsoft is addressing a common issue that all users of Sharepoint have, they’ve written a recipe for a remedy out of a situation that many others will themselves be stuck in, right now. As described in the white pa... (more)
