Cisco to shed 5,500 staff in refocus on IoT, security, and cloud

Cisco Systems plans to lay off about 7 percent of its global workforce in a restructuring that will see it further focus on hot IT areas such as the internet of things, security, collaboration, next-generation data centers, and the cloud.

The move will cost the company around $ 700 million in severance payments to the roughly 5,500 staff who will be out of jobs in the coming months. The layoffs will hit some of Cisco’s smaller and more mature business areas where long-term growth prospects are low, the company said.

The job losses are lower than those first feared after a CRN report on Tuesday claimed around 14,000 staff would be laid off.

Nearly a month ago, former Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom announced that he was working on a brand new version of the cloud storage and hosting service with enhanced security and privacy features.

IBM’s cloud CTO: ‘We’re in this game to win’

IBM saw from the get-go that the cloud was going to cause a major disruption to its business.

“We knew it was a massive opportunity for IBM, but not in a way that necessarily fit our mold,” said Jim Comfort, who is now CTO for IBM Cloud. “Every dimension of our business model would change — we knew that going in.”

Change they have, and there’s little denying that the cloud businesses is now a ray of sunshine brightening IBM’s outlook as its legacy businesses struggle. In its second-quarter earnings report last week, cloud revenue was up 30 percent for the quarter year over year, reaching $ 11.6 billion. Revenue from systems hardware and operating systems software, on the other hand, was down more than 23 percent.

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.

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.

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.
