Autumn conference season continues for CIC team

This week, the CIC team, along with 135,000 attendees are over in San Francisco for Dreamforce 2014 hosted by salesforce.com, check back soon for the CIC take on the event. Meanwhile, we have some new blogs to share from CIC Analysts Clive Howard and Ian Murphy.

Clive comments on the recent announcement that Red Hat is to acquire Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP) FeedHenry. Find out how he sees FeedHenry fitting into and strengthening Red Hat’s offering.

Clive has also blogged an update on IBM’s MobileFirst portfolio since its inception in 2013. He comments on the growth of the portfolio over the past year and IBM’s partnership with Apple now the dust has settled on the announcement.

Following on from his visit to the IBM Systems and Technology Group Analyst Insights conference, Ian has posted two insightful blogs. Firstly Ian examines how IBM is changing the cloud conversation to say “take the app to the data” and not the other way around. He discusses the implications of this major strategy shift in how IBM talks to its customers about its technologies. Then, after meeting the Watson engineers at the research centre, Ian explains why IBM Watson’s cognitive computing technology is helping to accelerate medical research. He also explores how a plan to commoditise the product will enable a more accessible and affordable solution for wider research purposes and beyond.

Last but not least, don’t forget to take a look at CIC’s new IOT think tank column over on ADTmag.com. This month, Clive Howard is “Debunking the Top 3 Internet of Things (IoT) Development Myths”, which has proven to be a popular article on the site.
