Amazon’s Away Teams laid bare: How AWS's hivemind of engineers develop and maintain their internal tech



There are good ideas and practices in here but ... Calling Architects "Bar Raizers" might be a sign of the key single point of failure (SPOF).

I would like to think the AMZN CTO and "Bar Raizers" have developed a common vision and enterprise road map. But I am not hopeful.

It is perhaps interesting to compare the histories of AMZN and MSFT. Windows is Mount Everest of technical debt, but AMZN are building one that might grow larger.

Airbus CIO: We dumped Microsoft Office not over cost but because Google G Suite looks sweet


All very puzzling. This "news" describes a somewhat fictional story.

Server, perhaps. Desktop? No.

After 2 or 3 years after last experience I had to install and use Ubuntu few weeks ago on one desktop, and use it .. It was worse than ever.

There are three key players:

500 MEELLION PCs still run Windows XP. How did we get here?


M$FT can solve this very quickly

M$FT should simply "give away" W8 licences for *free* in return for XP licences. Whoever owns XP licence key should be given W8 one for free.

Inside a single financial year M$FT will recoup the losses (and make even more profit) by accommodating hundreds of millions of newcomers with Office subscriptions.

Also. Suddenly W8 "Apps" will become a focus of millions of Apps developers.

Also. W8 newcomers will all of a sudden become aware of Windows Mobile devices (which soon will run the same OS)

How simple ?

Oracle and Dell forge worldwide server alliance


nobody mentions Google here ?

in danger of sounding pompous , let us be clear : 1. NoSQL is very serious, 2: end of big expensive servers is few years away. Everything comes to its end, incuding Oracle and including Dell. Everybody will have a hard time trying to combat GOOG with its wast cloud, and with zero SQL inside and zero classical servers in it.

HP reinvents intranets as cloudy managed services


Problem : Intranet == SharePoint

Hidden gem is (by general consensus) inability of SharePoint to deliver, AND by admition of HP, the greatest MSFT ally that ever was. HP Premise (hidden behind NGIW) is that SharePoint has failed as a platform for quick and easy enterprise apps delivering large ROI. And after spending last several years as an expert on SP, I can only but agree. For me NGIW is an effort to sell an solution to enterprises disillusioned with SharePoint.
