I wrote this 6 years ago? Multi-Tenant AaaS : )

Posted by:

Just ran across this VMware vFabric blog post (which largely turned into Pivotal.io) that I wrote back in 2012. How did 6 years go by so fast?

Well, it is good to know that these concepts are still so relevant.

In the article, our architect pointed out how development and operations in the cloud is different, particularly for multi-tenant systems. In the traditional software distribution model, developers are mainly responsible for developing and packaging good code. It’s not ...

By 2025, 90% of Ads are Programmatic

Posted by:

“#5: 90% of all advertising will flow programmatically within a decade. Over the last several years, we’ve all witnessed a meteoric rise of programmatic mobile and video. TV will follow suit within the next few years. The millions of smart TV units flying off store shelves, and the increase in digital content consumption, will accelerate the shift towards programmatic. In fact, I predict that within the next decade, 90% of all advertising dollars will flow through a programmatic channel that’s ...

Early Stage Investment Activity in 2015

Posted by:

A quick update on the early stage market from this source:

  
After an exuberant Q3’15, which hit dot com-funding levels, Q4’15 cooled dramatically.

Industrial Revolutions: The First, Second, Third, and Fourth

Marketing Ops – Great Campaign Structure Advice and My 2000 Millicents

Posted by:

When I led marketing operations and analytics at Siebel, drove the implementation at Oracle, and was a product marketing guy at Unica, one of the most critical elements of measuring marketing ROI was campaign structure. Since I’ve spent the last three years writing about big data and data science at Pivotal.io, I see even more reason why quality and granular attribution in this area becomes critical. I hope to make a bit of a series on this topic. For now, I’ll keep it high ...

It’s Officially Time to Freak Out if Your Mobile Shopping Site Sucks

Posted by:

Interesting Black Friday research…

Visits from mobile phones comprised 52 percent of total traffic on shopping sites and apps on Thanksgiving, according to ChannelAdvisor, an e-commerce software company that helps merchants sell on big marketplaces like Amazon and eBay. The company said that 37 percent of all online Thanksgiving orders were made on smartphones, up 131 percent from last year’s 16 percent figure.

Wow – There are Quite a Few Unicorns – VC, Angel Investing, Startups – Do these valuations make economic sense? :)

Posted by:

Not that too many people care, but I think they do, mostly :). I mean, when you look at the fact that there is a fundamental economic shift happening.Information is becoming more valuable than tangible assets, products, services, and even money (to a certain extent).

“There are currently 141 unicorn companies globally. Recently, Mark Suster and the team at Upfront Ventures published their Venture Outlook 2016 report, which highlighted the insane pace at which billion-dollar companies are being created. With this in mind, ...

Another Perspective on Computing: Computation, Communication, Coordination, Recollection, Automation, Evaluation, Design

Posted by:

This article is a very interesting way to look at computing.

“We analyzed many computing technologies to identify the principles on which they are based, and we studied how what aspects of computation are influencing other fields.  From this, we concluded that computing principles can be grouped into seven categories:

Computation (meaning and limits of computation)

Communication (reliable data transmission)

Coordination (cooperation among networked entities)

Recollection (storage and retrieval of information)

Automation (meaning and limits ...

12 Diagrams that Defne Data Science

Posted by:

Given the fact that these 12 diagrams (with one duplicate) explain or define data science and come from multiple sources, they do a great job collectively defining the discipline in pictures.

As someone who does product and content marketing for a few companies in the data science space, there is often some education or level-setting required to ensure people understand what data science is, why data science is unique, and what data science can do.
