TIBCO Goes to IBM Before the End of March 2010 -Prediction

Oracle Keynote at Cloud Expo Cloud Computing Expo - I hate to make new year's resolutions like a new diet program or another trainer at my local gym. I also usually never bother with annual predictions either, for that matter. One exception to that personal rule is the long over due sale of TIBCO Software. Since Oracle's bloody murder acquisition of BEA Systems, for the past two years there has been non-stop rumors that TIBCO would be next, of course which did not happen so far. Oracle was named exclusive Diamond Sponsor of Cloud Expo 2010, which will take place April 19-21, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City. Cloud Expo, with over 5,000 delegates and more than 200 sponsors, will be the most significant technology event of the year. Now that TIBCO's fourth quarter results are around the corner (on Tuesday after the closing bell), the rumors star... (more)

Open Text's VP SAP Solutions Group Patrick Barnert

I am a big believer in the saying "content is king!"  So when I read recently that Open Text announced they were going to mobilize their enterprise content management products with a solution called Open Text Everywhere, I was intrigued but skeptical.  Open Text provides powerful enterprise content management solutions, the SAP Invoice Management solution, and collaboration and social networking tools for the enterprise, but now mobile solutions as well?  At Sapphire I was able to schedule a video interview with Open Text's VP SAP Solutions Group, Patrick Barnert.  One of the first questions I asked Patrick was, "Are you serious or just playing around with mobility?"  You can watch and hear his response here. I appreciate mobile applications that add value in unique and powerful ways.  The accounts payable processes in large enterprises is a very important area.  C... (more)

Sales Tax Nexus - What Is It?

SAP Business One users have a company on their side to keep up with tax law. The folks over at Sabrix never cease to amaze me, what with their obsession with everything taxes. Why would intelligent people do that to themselves? I better not ask to much, or they could realize it and stop doing all the dirty work for us. Sabrix puts out a great newsletter and blog that provides updates to tax law changes and general information about taxes. If you are a company selling on the web, and are unaware of the changes happening in Congress, checking out Sabrix's blog would be a good idea. Here's a recent excerpt about Nexus, an always misunderstood concept that is sure to be at the forefront of many E-commerce site issues in the future.

Chuck Phillips Was Supposed to Become CEO of CA

Oracle Keynote at Cloud Expo Cloud Computing News - Oracle co-president Charles Phillips was supposed to become CEO of CA - for all its muddied skirts still one of the world's largest software companies - and then those "soul mates forever" billboards popped up in New York, Atlanta and San Francisco, exposing his near decade-long bi-coastal double life with wife and son in the East and a live-in girlfriend in the West. Six days after Phillips was forced to admit that a picture of him and his ex-girlfriend canoodling was hanging over Times Square, CA named board member and executive chairman Bill McCracken CEO. He's the guy who's been running the company since John Swainson's reportedly forced retirement was announced in September. An ex-IBMer and an ex-Swainson pal, it was no secret he really wanted the job. Related Story: SAP Wants CA To Give It More Toys That w... (more)

Integrated SOA in the Cloud at Cloud Expo Silicon Valley

Cloud Expo Silicon Valley $800 Savings here!
