Webcasts R Us
By Larry Walsh
Taking a break from following Larry Ellison’s testimony in the intellectual property case against SAP to prep for three Webcasts next week: on Tuesday, November 16, I’ll host a Webcast focusing on cloud and virtualization. Don Boulia of IBM will explain just why virtualization and cloud implementations go hand-in-hand – and how to improve efficiency, lower costs and increase business agility by bringing virtualization to your cloud.
The next day, Wednesday, November 17, IBM’s Bill Hines will discuss WebSphere Datapower SOA appliances. Here’s the idea: As cloud computing gains steam, security and end-to-end application delivery are emerging as critical issues – and cloud appliances are emerging as a solution.
The next day, Thursday, November 18, the Webcast topic will be what BPM (Business Process Management) can do for you when it is combined with BA (not British Airways, but Business Analytics). It’s all about getting the right information at the right time to make the right decisions. Kramer Reeves of IBM will carry the ball. You can register for these Webcasts in the column to the right.
OK, back to the Oracle-vs SAP case – Ellison says $4 billion would make him go away. SAP admits guilt, but says $40 million is more like it. Meanwhile, Oracle is attempting to serve a subpoena on Leo Apotheker, CEO of Hewlett-Packard, who was at SAP when the ill deeds were done. Except Apotheker is in a meeting or something and HP complains Oracle is harassing him. Hey, this is much better than most TV shows!
