    In a clear signal that leaves no doubt about PeopleSoft's appreciation of the value of tightly integrating with IBM's market-leading middleware, the CRM giant today announced together with IBM that it will standardize all of its business applications on the WebSphere platform, and that both companies will jointly market the offerings.

    PeopleSoft President and CEO Craig Conway and IBM Software Group SVP and Group Executive Steve Mills were both very pleased with the move.

    "This is the largest and most significant agreement that PeopleSoft and IBM have ever made," said Conway. "Today we have eclipsed the competition by bringing together the most flexible and adaptable applications software with the strongest, most open middleware infrastructure in the world."

    "Combining PeopleSoft's industry-leading applications with IBM's superior middleware provides customers with a significant opportunity to integrate business processes throughout their organization, leading them down the path to becoming an on demand business," Mills added. "Customers are seeking innovative solutions that won't lock them into a proprietary platform. Combining industry-leading applications and infrastructure technology provides customers with offerings that can help them solve their business challenges more quickly."

    In a joint statement the companies said that the two companies will jointly market and deliver "integrated, cross-functional industry solutions targeted at solving some of the most difficult business process challenges facing companies today."

    These solutions will apparently consist of PeopleSoft applications, IBM middleware, third party software, and services from IBM and PeopleSoft to provide customers with a complete solution offering.

    The initial industry solutions, the companies said, will focus on banking, financial markets, insurance and telecommunications. Solutions for the telecommunications industry - built on IBM's Service Provider Delivery Environment framework - will include Customer Profitability Management, Network Lifecycle Management, and Customer Loyalty and Retention.

    Other new industry solutions will include Distribution Channel Management for Insurance and Integrated Risk Management for Banking and Financial Markets.

    PeopleSoft and IBM will also jointly establish the industry's first business process interoperability lab to drive integration and customization. PeopleSoft application developers, IBM, and other leading industry software vendors will test and certify application interoperability in real-world business environments. "The lab will reduce the time and effort required for pre-testing new standards and application integrations from multiple vendors," the companies said in a joint statement. "Customers and partners will be able to more rapidly respond to market dynamics and changing business needs through this open, standards-based platform."

    The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

    Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
    The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...

    When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
