Hence, what better than sponsoring Asia’s largest and best-attended cloud event for business, Cloud Expo Asia (CEA) in Singapore. We along with Docker, were silver sponsors for this mammoth Cloud event that took place in October. We work with enterprises large and not-so-large across […]

Exhausted from a busy day at the field with back to back customer meetings, our whole team headed for the newly opened Kopitiam across our office building. The scorching sun made even a little walk to our usual joint at Lau Pa Sat little impractical, particularly on a hot humid day. A smiling, warm face welcomed us all to the Coffee shop, asked us our names and specific choices of caffeine for our drained systems. The next day happened to be […]

During a chat with a senior executive of one of Europe’s largest auto majors, we talked about how our ongoing discussion on Docker is a part of and would help enable making driverless trucks a reality by 2020 using telematics.

“We don’t have any IT infrastructure and thus we don’t have the burdens of legacy systems. We are completely open to new ideas and innovations. We can only fast track from here in Digital Transformation,” a Myanmar delegate attending pgDay Asia in Singapore said, as she opened up her mind. To my delight, this passionate, technology-charged atmosphere is what I observe today, in many South East Asian organizations. The business setups of even global organizations in South East Asia are relatively […]

Big Data Platform – the name creates an imagery of big fat servers with GBs of memory, TBs of hard disk space, and expensive computing resources. It is being imagined as a very high bandwidth network with multiple data sources, Terabytes and Petabytes of data, data load mechanism, data churning algorithms, batch jobs, data scientists and so on. At times, it sounds scary – especially when you have been tasked at evaluating and preparing a plan for your organization’s Big Data […]

The consensus among industry experts is that the 2016 shopping season in the run-up to Christmas will be another record-breaking period for cybersecurity breaches. For any sized company across all industries, cybercrime IS a problem that costs businesses billions of dollars each year. Additionally, governments are holding company executives accountable, with the potential to someday hold these individuals personally liable.  Indeed, there is a lot at stake.

Pentaho’s strategy of BI and DI “better together” has been consistent since our early days, but this value proposition has never been stronger than it is today with the announcement of Pentaho 7.0.
