Verizon to Buy Yahoo For Chump Change

Tomorrow morning, Verizon will announce their plan to buy Yahoo’s core assets for a pitiful $ 4.8 billion according to “two people with direct knowledge of the situation,” Bloomberg reports. Considering that at the peak of their success, Yahoo was valued at $ 125 billion, this is yet another benchmark moment in the company’s fall from grace. In 2008, the company rejected Microsoft’s offer to buy them for $ 44 billion.

Exclusive: Oracle to reboot Java EE for the cloud


Oracle’s intentions for the future of Java EE have been cloudy, to say the least.

Rumored to have put the project on the back burner, Oracle has weathered a storm of complaints over its stewardship of enterprise Java, with two separate organizations considering plans to move Java EE forward without Oracle. Rather than let Java EE wither, Oracle is instead looking to reboot the platform to better accommodate where enterprises are headed, particularly to the cloud, said a high-ranking Oracle official in response to recent criticism.

In an exclusive interview this week, Oracle’s Thomas Kurian, president of product development, emphasized ambitious intentions to modernize the server-side platform, for which Oracle is gathering feedback now.

IDG Contributor Network: Displaying impressive growth, Pantheon slurps up heavy Series B


At first blush, Pantheon does something pretty mundane — it is in the business of helping companies host their websites.

In a world awash with cheap cloud computing platforms, and a myriad of cheap (and often free) website hosting solutions, you’d have though Pantheon was in a business with few prospects.

But the reality of Pantheon’s growth has been impressive. Founded only a few short years ago, the company has parlayed its singular focus (OK, it’s actually a dual focus) on hosting WordPress and Drupal websites into an impressive business that powers 150,000 websites globally including some high profile, and high traffic, sites. As an aside, that 150,000 figure is up from 65,000 in 2014.

IBM’s cloud and data analytics grow as overall revenue slides


IBM’s revenue continued to decline in the second quarter but growth in some of its strategic initiatives like cloud computing and data analytics suggest that the company may be on track in its transition plans.

The Armonk, New York, company said Monday that revenue from its new “strategic imperatives” like cloud, analytics and security increased by 12 percent year-on-year to $ 8.3 billion. That increase was, however, lower than the growth the company had reported in these businesses in the first quarter.

Cloud revenue – public, private and hybrid – grew 30 percent in the second quarter, while revenue from analytics grew 4 percent, revenue from mobile increased 43 percent and the security business grew 18 percent.

The Evolution of Joker in Film and TV History


The Evolution of Joker in Film and TV History

The Joker is easily one of the best villains in film and TV (and obviously, comic book) history, but who is the best Joker? Jack Nicholson combined the mischievous campiness of the character with the deranged thirst for violence. Heath Ledger’s The Dark Knight Joker is somehow just as iconic as Nicholson and fit Christopher Nolan’s Gotham perfectly. And Mark Hamill has basically become the standard-bearer of the Joker through his work in the animated Batman series.

IDG Contributor Network: CIO Masters Series: David Wilde, CIO of Essex County Council


If you’re a CIO and would like to be interviewed for our special U.K. vs. U.S. CIO Master series, please get in touch.

It’s a hot day, one of the rare few in London, when I meet David Wilde, the Essex County Council’s CIO, for a round of coffees and a chat to discuss how he and his team are making a difference to the people of Essex and helping the county government get through turbulent times.

The global recession changed the world, and the Essex County Council felt one of the hammer blows in October 2010, when the U.K. government announced its austerity program. The ECC’s budget, like every county council’s budget, was decimated, threatening the viability of almost every service, from policing to welfare, that the county council delivered to the county’s 1.4 million residents.

Who’s got the best cloud latency?


For some applications, the public cloud is only as good as the slowest connection to it.

Latency of cloud providers — the amount of time it takes for a cloud-based service to respond to a user’s request — is one of many critical factors that customers consider when choosing a cloud provider and monitoring their workloads. So which cloud provider has the best latency?

The real answer is it depends. Myriad factors influence latency: Where the user connects to the cloud from; which cloud data center the user connects to; which network provider is used; the route of the network traffic, among others.

Microsoft Dynamics 365, An ERP CRM Cloud Workflow Combo

The route to so-called business transformation and digital disruption is being massively over-hyped. As we try to look for tangible tools in this space, Microsoft Dynamics 365 is essentially a piece of software that aims to unify both current CRM and ERP cloud solutions into one cloud service with new purpose-built apps. The technology will integrate with Office 365 to connect the ‘structured workflow’ of business apps with the ‘unstructured workflow’ of collaboration and productivity. Not a cure-all for digitization transformation by any means, but a working effort that pushes Microsoft even further into cloud-centric software delivery.
