Storage QoS Is A Must-Have Feature for Enterprises and the Cloud | Forrester Blogs

Storage QoS Is A Must-Have Feature for Enterprises and the Cloud | Forrester Blogs | I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. | Scoop.it

Later this year, many of the established storage players will finally be adding Storage QoS (Quality of Service) functionality to their systems.  Though startups such as SolidFire and NexGen Storage (and some platforms such as IBM's XIV) have been touting this functionality for a few years now, most storage systems today currently lack Storage QoS.  If your primary storage vendor does not have Storage QoS on its roadmap, now is the time to start demanding it.

Normally, when I bring up the topic of Storage QoS with All-Flash Array startups or other high-end array vendors, the typical response I get is "We don't need Storage QoS. Our system is so fast - there are IOPS for everyone!"  While this statement may or may not be true (it isn't!), even if a system had a seemingly infinite amount of performance, this would only solve part of the problem with storage performance provisioning.  Here are a few things to keep in mind as you evaluate StorageQoS:

Gartner Says Cloud and CRM Will Drive Enterprise Software Spending in 2013 and 2014

Public Cloud Is Growing in North America and Western European Markets, but Private Cloud Remains the Preference in Emerging Markets

Analysts to Discuss Future Trends in CRM at Gartner Customer Strategies & Technologies Summit 2013, June 5-6 in London, UK and the Gartner Customer 360 Summit 2013, May 1-3 in Orlando

Greater adoption of on-premises and software as a service (SaaS) will drive a modest increase in worldwide software spending through 2014, according to a recent survey by Gartner, Inc. Gartner conducted the large-scale enterprise IT spending study through the third quarter of 2012 for analysis of enterprises' IT budget spending plans for 2013 and 2014.

"Results from the survey indicate that software spending will increase modestly worldwide through the 2014 budget year, with new software sales (on-premises) and SaaS driving this increased spending," said Hai Hong Swineheart, research analyst at Gartner. "However, significant regional differences in priorities and drivers will require vendors to pursue market-specific strategies." 

Regions with higher IT maturity, such as North America and Western Europe, expect lower or no budget increases over the next two years, while developing countries with immature IT infrastructure, such as Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia/Pacific, will experience the largest budget increases in software spending.

The Outcome Focus Of World Class EA Programs | Forrester Blogs

The Outcome Focus Of World Class EA Programs | Forrester Blogs | I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. | Scoop.it

I recently had a conversation with a new EA practice leaders in the investment management business unit of a large multi-line insurance company.  They wanted to hear my perspectives on what a world-class EA program should look like.  They knew of all the traditional EA building blocks: standards and roadmaps, architecture domains, methodologies like TOGAF.  They had a long list of things to do, but were uncertain about which to tackle first, and had a nagging feeling that these had little to do with world-class EA programs.  We touched on EA maturity models, but quickly concluded that there isn’t an obvious and compelling business value proposition to simply ‘being mature’. 

The conversation shifted to outcomes – what are the outcomes of a world-class EA program?  IT cost reduction could be an outcome, and has been the raison d’etre of EA for years.  IT solution design quality could be an outcome, and has been the justification for architects for longer than EA has been around.  But these are all IT-centric outcomes.

We all know the world is changing.  Digital capabilities are radically impacting our customers, the competitive landscape, the regulatory context, and the operating models of businesses.  Kyle McNabb summarizes this very well in his blog post.  The mantra today is business agility in the face of all these radical changes.  Because of this, being IT-centric is no longer the hallmark of a world class EA program.

Mobile BI and cloud BI are among the top trends that we track in the industry. Our upcoming Enterprise BI Platforms Wave™ will dedicate a significant portion of vendor evaluation on these two capabilities. These capabilities are far from yes/no checkmarks. Just asking vague questions like “Can you deliver your BI functionality on mobile devices?” and “Is your BI platform available in the cloud as software-as-a-service?” will lead to incomplete vendor answers, which in turn may lead you to make the wrong vendor selections. Instead, we plan to evaluate these two critical BI platform capabilities along the following parameters:

SharePoint Enters Its Awkward Teenage Years | Forrester Blogs

SharePoint Enters Its Awkward Teenage Years | Forrester Blogs | I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. | Scoop.it

Rob Koplowitz and I collaborated on this research. Forrester clients can access the full report here. The research uses data from Forrester's August 2012 Global SharePoint Usage Online Survey to analyze the current and likely future state of SharePoint adoption in enterprises. Selected results from the survey are available here.

Microsoft SharePoint is the centerpiece of many enterprises’ collaboration and content strategies, but it isn’t clear to us that enterprises will continue to invest in SharePoint to provide a broad range of social, web content, and content delivery functions.

Our latest Global SharePoint Usage Online Survey (2012) suggests that customers struggle to adopt SharePoint’s full range of features, hurting the product’s long-term business value.  Many business managers (as opposed to IT managers) aren’t satisfied that SharePoint delivers good business value to their companies, citing uninspired user experiences, technical complexity, and other factors.

IT management is more satisfied with SharePoint than business management, and this satisfaction is driving aggressive adoption of new SharePoint releases. Plans to adopt the latest release – SharePoint 2013 – are very strong.

In addition to challenging satisfaction levels with SharePoint among business managers, SharePoint faces three other barriers to its continued domination of enterprise collaboration and Intranet platforms.
