In the last year, companies have aggregated unprecedented amounts of data. But now there is much discussion about how to use this data in the most efficient way; large volumes of data are useless without organization and context, and companies need sophisticated analytics to interpret and prioritize the right data that will drive better business decisions.
FirstRain is creating an area of big data analytics that is largely new to the customer intelligence landscape: getting highly personalized, relevant and timely information to sales and marketing teams. Each user’s experience is based on how they sell and go-to-market, and the products they are selling, so they can quickly understand the relevant developments in their customers’ business to maximize revenue opportunities. FirstRain’s cloud-based solutions, Customer Insights and Market Insights, leverage patented algorithms to extract critical developments and visualizations from the business web and social media. These actionable insights are seamlessly delivered to each individual, and their enterprise teams, within the social and mobile applications they use every day. FirstRain’s software powers Fortune 1000 companies such as Cisco, GE Capital and Flextronics.

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
