Oracle Mobile and Social Access Management White Paper

We all want to have information at our fingertips. We want to be able to access this information when we want and at a time of our choosing. It’s a vitally important consideration particularly for enterprise. Mobile computing has made it a reality: businesses can access the internet or engage on social platforms anytime and anywhere.

Knowing the now’: Guavus CEO talks big data analytics with online news network, Terra

As the title would suggest, big data is big – very big in fact. The description ‘big’ barely does it justice. The massive volumes of data gathered from smartphones, vehicle sensors and clicks and keystrokes from keyboards and web servers are difficult to fully comprehend. IBM maintains that as much as 90 per cent of this big data has been collected in the last two years alone as technology and processing capabilities have improved. We’re now in a position where it’s estimated that some 2.5 quintillion bytes of additional information are collected and added to the mix every day. But having the information to hand is one thing: knowing what to do with it is another thing entirely. How can you get the best value out of these enormous amounts of raw data? How can derive insights that can truly benefit businesses? The only way to get a clear answer to those questions is to listen to the opinions of an expert. That’s why online network, Terra, sat down with Anukool Lakhina, founder and CEO of Guavus, a California-based big data analytics software company to thrash out some of the most-pressing issues. Here’s what he told Terra. Continue reading…

Big Data In Danger of Definitional Overkill

Big data evangelization is not for the faint of heart. At a recent industry panel that I was on, the moderator joked that there must be a petabyte-scale big-data cluster somewhere brimming with definitions of big data.

Imagine trying to cram all of that into one’s puny human cranium. At the very least, a big-data evangelist has to be crystal clear on how you yourself define and scope the topic. You must be prepared to defend and elaborate on it constantly. You must listen to and consider other points of view. And you must continually evolve your thinking, because this stuff doesn’t hold still for a moment. Continue reading…


Big Data and Small Businesses

If you think big data analytics is only for big business, think again.  As many of our small, growing customers know, big data is not just about data volume.  You may not care a jot about the explosion of data your organisation collects.  To you it may just be noise as you have all the information you need to push the business forward.  But if you suspect that valuable insights are buried in this mountain of data – insights that could give you competitive advantage that you aren’t currently accessing or managing – you have a big data issue.

Solving The Network Identity Management Crisis

Computers, like life itself, are evolving into a higher form of organism. Driven to increasingly complex forms of networking and connecting to ever larger and more elaborate systems, they are becoming smarter, faster, more independent and more powerful. In fact, according to experts by 2035, our planet will be home to approximately 65 billion IP adresses. And we’re not just talking PC to PC, or smartphone to smartphone, it’s everything in between, including servers and API that connect people and things, consumers and enterprise. Continue reading…
