Proposed Oracle Acquisition of Sun:  IBM Stole the Thunder

The purchase of Sun by Oracle for $7.4 billion has far less industry buzz and excitement than the rumored acquisition of Sun by IBM. 

IBM stole the thunder and the impending acquisition of Sun became an imminent and expected event.  While hardware overlap existed in the IBM deal, IBM would have provided a much needed home for Sun’s software assets.  Software giant Oracle lacks a hardware portfolio, so the key Oracle / Sun overlaps are far fewer except for the $1 billion acquisition of MySQL by Sun in 2008.  Given Oracle’s tendency to be proprietary in its markets, ownership of MySQL by Oracle would be perceived as a great risk in the open source community.  (Register or Login to Read More)

The publication of the Open Cloud Manifesto is positive.  The Cloud, driven by virtualization, is surfacing at the right time in the market and can advance computing in this generation. 

The concept of “openness” is necessary for innovation to thrive.  Publishing an open view with multiple and varied participants is an example of global lifecycle transformation where organizations work together across boundaries.

IBM, one of the key supporters of the Open Cloud Manifesto, has a long history of advancing collaboration around new technologies.  In the 90’s, IBM attempted collaboration by creating consortium style companies such as Taligent and Kaleida.  In the early part of this century, IBM was the leader of what has transformed in to Eclipse.org.  This appears to be IBM’s attempt to get agreement on the Cloud at various levels.

It is clear that each organization in support of the Open Cloud Manifesto has an agenda based upon the Cloud.  Agreement and discussion among a critical mass is a positive step to advancing Cloud technology.

The purchase of Sun Microsystems by IBM would be a win for IBM.

Sun has been in a holding pattern since the dot com implosion.  And, while Sun positioned themselves as “the dot in the dot com”, that was the last innovation we have seen come from Sun.

Sun, while it once had very competitive hardware, had no idea how to productize and implement effective software products.  Sun works on the assumption that all software must lead to Sun server sales – definitely a flawed idea that was proven wrong numerous times.  Sun also was never able to quite grasp the idea of high volume and low margin sales.  Sun continued on in its technology efforts like it was 1988.

IBM has clearly demonstrated that it is more than capable of:

  • Being a hardware company
  • Running an effective and profitable professional services business
  • Managing a growing and diverse software portfolio
  • Delighting and maintaining its customer base

IBM has also managed many acquisitions and always seems to find something in an acquisition worthy of continuing on with the IBM brand.

The potential of a Sun acquisition by IBM makes sense.  IBM is a world class business organization and will be able to make business sense out of Sun’s academic assets.

We started the year with the New England Patriots posting an undefeated regular season record of 16 – 0.  It appeared to be conclusive; the Patriots would win the Super Bowl – not so fast – the wild card New York Giants made an unpredictable and disruptive move by narrowly defeating the favored Patriots.  It was inevitable that the Patriots lose at some point in the season, it just happened to be the last and most important game.

In July, the greatest sporting event, the Tour de France departed with no defending champion for the second consecutive year!  Team Astana, with two of the three podium finishers of the 2007 race appeared to have very good odds of gaining one of the top three spots again.  Surprise! Team Astana was banned and Team CSC with Carlos Sastre and company rode to an unpredictable and disruptive victory.  It was inevitable that the Tour de France could not escape controversy.

Disruption and unpredictability seem to be the prevailing themes for 2008. In a year when radical and unexpected occurrences were commonplace, should technology be any different?  Let’s take a look at the big issues that may have shocked us, but in reality, were inevitable...

Outsourcing and specifically the trend to move tasks to offshore providers is evolving. At the end of the 20th century, the concept of using an offshore provider was primarily a cost issue. As the nuances, positives, and negatives of using offshore providers became visible the idea of team virtualization was the most popular reason for outsourcing. Now, as teams are truly virtualized across boundaries, both real and imaginary, outsourcing is about to enter a new phase. Offshore providers will more than likely take on more technical roles and responsibilities while their clients concentrate on the core business and deliver strategic value.  Emerging nations where populations are increasing their technical skills are a haven for entrepreneurs and venture capital investments.  In this edition of the Future Watch, we hypothesize on where technical skills will emerge and why standards will be driven to acceptance.

The concept of the Cost of Quality, that is, the cost of rework to remove defects, is that the later in the lifecycle a defect is identified, the more expensive it is to resolve the issue. With its shift in requirements ownership from the business to developers who will discover requirements through changes to the source code, the Agile movement is effectively pushing requirements definition to later in the lifecycle. Applying models for the cost of rework to Agile projects reveals the hidden costs of the late definition of requirements. This report provides economic models for evaluating project results and selecting the most appropriate practices.

In this Enterprise Leadership podcast Theresa Lanowitz provides some down-to-earth discussion about cloud computing as a disruptive technology, moving one step closer to pervasive utility computing.

Every household doesn't need its own energy grid. If you follow this logic, then each enterprise does not need to be in the business of creating massive infrastructure. Why not take advantage of the some of the world's largest infrastructure offered to you by Amazon.com's Web Services or Google Apps Engine? That is the view of Theresa Lanowitz, the founder of voke, a research firm focused on breakthrough technologies, such as cloud computing.

She says that while Salesforce.com has revolutionized customer relations marketing by elevating it as a platform as a service, Amazon.com and Google.com have the opportunity to share their knowledge and expertise with every enterprise. She adds, "By making their massively scalable, highly available, high-performance environment, and a solid security infrastructure available, both Amazon.com and Google.com have moved one step closer to software as a service and pervasive utility computing. As a result, companies will be able to lower the cost of doing business and to remain innovative, competitive, and profitable. Enterprises of all sizes need to focus on delivering value to the marketplace of their core competency, regardless of what it is."

In this podcast, Theresa Lanowitz discusses the following:

  • What type of impact Amazon.com Web Services and Google Apps Engine will have on cloud computing;
  • What other areas of cloud computing and Web 2.0 will prevail;
  • Why CIOs are hesitant to embrace cloud computing; and
  • What three cloud computing takeaways CIOs need to think about in making decisions about this app?

2008 was a tough year for IT, and 2009-2010 appear to be more of the same: Budget cuts, a focus on conserving cash and doing more with less. At the same time, technology has not stood still: innovative technologies that have the potential to deliver strategic value, such as application virtualization and replay debugging, are still being developed, and are entering the mainstream. What can we learn from previous economic downturns with regards to making technology investments in such a climate?

Join Theresa Lanowitz, analyst from voke, and Jonathan Lindo, CEO and Founder of Replay Solutions for a podcast discussion of current challenges in today's application problem resolution processes and suggestions for how application development teams can dramatically shorten the process of fixing defects to speed time-to-market. This session will give practical guidance on how your application team can:

  • Make incremental investments that have immediate ROI through the elimination of manual work
  • Save money and increase efficiency by eliminating complex processes needed to reproduce defects
  • Improve productivity with better collaboration between geographically disperse teams
  • Increase application quality by fixing those hard to find or elusive defects

Replay Solutions provides application problem resolution products that dramatically shorten the process of fixing defects to speed time-to-market. ReplayDIRECTOR functions like a DVR for enterprise applications - recording all inputs and events affecting your application while it is running, then replaying those steps to execute the code in exactly the same way and reproduce the error without needing to reproduce the environment the defect occurred in.


 

In this requirements.net exclusive podcast, Theresa discusses a rather unconventional report (titled: Fortune 500 Spending Required for IT Cost Savings”) which looks at the economy and smart moves for IT.

In this report, the voke research team makes some very interesting reminders about the fall out of the dot-com bubble bursting, and the lesson’s from IT’s reaction in 2001 and 2002.

The voke research teams make some important recommendations which tie directly to Business Analyst empowerment and investments in requirements definition as a critical element to surviving the IT downtown.

The Podcast is 40 minutes of a fact-based, fresh dialog on efficient outsourcing, IT virtualization, lifecycle management, and the importance of the BA and requirements.

 In 2012, voke published economic models to evaluate the hidden costs of software projects.  Our key findings show that since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) of 2009, the average cost of software projects is rising dramatically, this is in spite of smaller teams working shorter durations.  At the same time, rework costs remain high or unknown and high profile software failures continue to make headlines daily.

Organizations must understand how defects create a hidden cost of rework in every software project and how these costs manifest differently in Agile and Non-Agile projects. Given the impact of catastrophic software failures on the brand, we should be witnessing a movement toward increased quality, not a reactionary call for more testing after the software has shipped.

Software engineering professionals are familiar with the concept of Cost of Quality, or more specifically, the cost involved with removing defects, essentially the cost of “rework.” The premise of this concept is that the later in the lifecycle a defect is identified, the more expensive it is to resolve the issue.

 
With the failure of www.HealthCare.gov, US taxpayers will pay the price for the cost of rework.  Modern tools such as service virtualization enable early testing of incomplete or unavailable components and systems to help mitigate potential risks of production failures.
 
Uncovering defects earlier in the software lifecycle saves time and money. In today’s environment where businesses and governments run on software, removal of defects related to requirements is essential to eliminating the risk of exponential cost overruns and schedule delays.
 
Collaboration and availability is essential prior to beginning development. It is much less expensive and easier to meet, discuss, review, and refine to ensure that requirements are properly defined and communicated than to change the code at a later point in the project.
 
Effective collaboration and test coverage of key requirements is essential. Make sure you invest properly in architecture, requirements, design, and quality practices that prevent the release of catastrophic failures.
Tips to avoid catastrophic failures:


Most importantly, understand the business risks of prioritizing schedule to the exclusion of quality and ultimately cost. Empower your test organization to protect your brand from catastrophic failures.

The big news today was the Citrix acquisition of open source virtualization company XenSource. I have commented many times in the past year about the future I think virtualization has and how it will be one of the defining technologies of the 21st century.

So, here is my philosophy on the acquisition….one if you are inclined to be a geek and another if you fancy yourself more of a business person. Either way, the net / net of this is virtualization is real and coming to an enterprise near you...

Retro is in – all hail to the 80’s! But in software?

I was fortunate to be in attendance as Microsoft kicked off its 15th annual TechEd conference in Orlando, FL with a “Back to the Future” spoof complete with an authentic DeLorean , a remarkably well preserved Christopher Lloyd and Microsoft's Bob Muglia transformed to Michael J. Fox complete with an authentic 80’s wardrobe and hair.

 
David Cassidy and puka shells, Donny Osmond and purple socks, or chocolate and peanut butter. OK, I am dating myself, but there are just some things that do go together. I spent the past 2 weeks realizing there is some truth to this concept, even in technology.

On April 25, 2007 I was honored to deliver the keynote address at the SQS Software Quality Conference in Dusseldorf, Germany. This is a major event in the software quality world, with attendees coming from around the European Union to hear about quality and exchange ideas with others. While preparing the content for my keynote, I had several conversations with SQS CEO, Rudolf van Megen. Mr. van Megen has a unique outlook on the quality market and its future direction. During our conversations he told me of the big push in the German market, specifically, to using offshore providers...

 
According to the Gregorian calendar, the December 21 equinox is rapidly approaching and consequently so is the end of the year 2006.

It seems fitting that as we phase out of our last 365 and in to our next 365 we should pause to remember the good and not so good. So, here is our interpretation of 2006...

Since I am in Los Angeles this week, I am in a Dragnet kind of a mood, and as Sgt. Joe Friday would say – “All we know are the facts, ma'am"

The facts are:
• The HP acquisition of Mercury is completed
• The cost to HP $4.5 billion in cash
• The acquisition was announced on July 25, 2006
• The acquisition was closed on November 7, 2006

All we know are the facts – all we know for certain...

 
The final (assuming the HP acquisition of Mercury closes) Mercury World was held in Las Vegas, Nevada the week of October 9, 2006. Captain Mercury had one last hurrah - I am sure many of you remember Captain Mercury, the superhero of load testing! ...

 
I recently had the pleasure of delivering the keynote presentation at the Software Quality Systems (SQS) conference in Zurich. SQS is always an excellent and gracious host at their conferences...

 
That is what HP (NYSE: HPQ) has ahead of themselves as they announce their bid of $52 per share or $4.5 billion to acquire Mercury Interactive Corporation (OTC: MERQ)...

 
At Microsoft Tech Ed, I had an informative conversation with Jason Beaudreau, Director of IT for Altair Global Relocation. When I first met Jason, I had no idea who or what Altair Global Relocation was. I figured they moved people around, but really did not think a relocation company would be a poster enterprise for technology. Think again! ...

Join voke's Theresa Lanowitz at Cognizant's QE&A Summit in Boston, MA on June 24, 2015.

With software, time-to-market has trumped everything, but at what expense? Catastrophic software failures have made headlines day after day, yet software quality seems to be an afterthought. This mindset of quality as an afterthought must be changed. Software quality professionals must reinvigorate thinking in the software lifecycle and focus on driving competitive business results through software. Software quality professionals can no longer act in isolation; they must be an advocate for the business and be able to identify risks in addition to defects.

Software quality professionals are witnessing an inflection point where quality is an endeavor undertaken across the software lifecycle. Quality professionals must learn to leverage modern technology to automate tactical activities to be able to focus on strategic activities that will deliver valuable business outcomes. It is time to bring quality back to software.

This presentation will focus on:

  • Why software quality is more important than ever for a truly digital organization
  • Why traditional silos must effectively collaborate to satisfy the needs of the business
  • How software quality professionals can update their skill sets to prevent business failures
