The Future of Cloud Computing

by Chris Martins, Product Marketing Manager, Trillium Software

Future-cloud-computingWhat’s driving the adoption of cloud computing models? To find out, Trillium chose to co-sponsor the fifth annual Future of Cloud Computing Survey conducted by North Bridge, a leading venture capital firm, and Wikibon, an open source community of industry analysts. The survey results were released in mid-December by way of a press release and a webinar conducted by both organizations. As the industry’s largest independent survey of cloud adoption trends, the results are an insightful snapshot of what is happening in the cloud market. And, given initiative like Trillium Cloud, as well as our integration with cloud solutions like Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics CRM, the survey is of considerable interest to Trillium and our customers.

Lurking in the Shadows, Part 2

by Chris Martins, Product Marketing Manager, Trillium Software

CIO CDOIn my last posting I suggested the possibility that perhaps the role of chief data officer warranted reconsideration. The thinking in support of that reconsideration was that creating a new stove-piped organizational role, albeit an important one focused on the role of data within the enterprise, might not be the best approach given that most enterprises already have a Chief Information Officer. Since “information” is a higher form of “data” one can see how data could logically be considered within the domain of the CIO.

Should you “beware of the cloud, beware of vendors”?

by Chris Martins, Product Marketing Manager, Trillium Software

Beware of Cloud Vendors The Bank of England's CIO, John Finch, recently presented at a UK conference: the Cloud World Forum. Among the headlines spawned by his speech were ‘Beware of the cloud, beware of vendors." It makes for a good headline, or at least a provocative one. And it echoes a similar position that Mr. Finch apparently had made at the same conference the prior year. So it's not that he was an ungracious guest – e.g. like wearing a fur coat at a PETA convention. The conference organizers were forewarned of his position and likely sought his contrary point of view.

Trillium Cloud: From CapEx to OpEx – Focusing on the Hole, Not the Shovel

by Chris Martins, Product Marketing Manager, Trillium Software

OpEx-BlogThe costs associated with enterprise technology procurement have traditionally been treated as a capital expenditure (CapEx), thereby allowing an organization to amortize (for intangibles) and depreciate (for tangible goods) the costs of technology over an extended period of time (typically five years.) The logic of CapEx as an accounting method is that the costs of “capital” represent investments that are intended to create long term value for the business. Given an extended value, you can apportion the costs of the asset across that period of time, as well.

Software-as-a-Service: Implications for [Truly] Enterprise Applications

by Chris Martins, Product Marketing Manager, Trillium Software

SaaSTrillium Cloud, as a SaaS offering, sits atop the cloud technology stack, sharing the “aaS” suffix that is common to cloud infrastructure (IaaS) and platform (PaaS) elements. The commonality of terminology can tend to focus attention solely on SaaS as a technology model within cloud-based architectures, with emphasis on “technology.” In the case of Trillium Cloud, our adoption of SaaS means that the job of deploying an application and managing daily operations, handling upgrades, monitoring performance, ensuring security and availability is all handled by Trillium. With our assumption of responsibility for these activities, our client’s IT department can focus more on business relevant activities that focus on their business goals. In that way SaaS emancipates the client IT department to focus on strategic value contributions rather than break/fix "administrivia" of infrastructure. The business begins to derive data quality benefits within 30 days.

Cloud Computing? It’s Really the Natural Order of Things

by Chris Martins, Product Marketing Manager, Trillium Software

cloud computing Much of the technology industry focuses on the “what” of cloud architectures and the “how” of implementation. So we are awash in acronyms like IaaS, Paas, SaaS - and more recently - APaaS, IPaaS and who knows what others. After all, a technology market has not reached maturity unless it has garnered a certain quota of acronyms. By that measure, cloud computing has certainly arrived!

Trillium Cloud- A "View from the World of Software"

by Chris Martins, Product Marketing Manager, Trillium Software

Chrismartins-cloudThe New Yorker magazine is famous for its cartoons, but one of its more famous was a magazine cover entitled “View of the World from 9th Avenue” from March of 1976 (http://goo.gl/dHxxyH). The image pokes fun at how someone from New York looks at the rest of the world, with locations (and their presumed importance) diminishing drastically the farther away they are.
