  • Cloud Security Alliance Survey Finds Financial Firms are in Search of a Cloud Strategy

    When it comes to cloud adoption by enterprises, it is no secret that one of the biggest obstacles to adoption, if not the biggest, has been concerns about security. This means the security of data at rest as well as on the move. The vertical market that has proven to be a difficult one for cloud providers, especially because of the intensity surrounding the need to mitigate risks at almost any cost, has been the financial services sector. Let's just say that C-levels at banks, insurance companies and all types of investment and wealth management firms around the world have been cloud…

    Thirteen years ago, a serial entrepreneur, who I had worked with in the late 90s and early part of the start of the century, Adityo Prakash talked to me about an idea. The idea was to drive drug discovery, not the traditional way, purely in the lab, but through complex algorithms that would simulate certain interactions in silicon to find drugs for many diseases that impact human health.  The 13-year quest of Adityo Prakash and Eniko Fodor’s Verseon, a story they kept by design as much as possible in stealth from a communications perspective, could become one of Silicon Valley’s…

  • The Future According to Microsoft: Universal Communications

    27 Apr 2015 | 12:14 pm
    The world is changing. Business used to be straightforward - you create or produce something, then you market and sell it. There was always some level of ownership involved; and there's always been some level of local infrastructure in play. But, today, when you look at some of the most successful businesses in the world, they don't own or produce their own products.
  • IS BYOD DOA?

    27 Apr 2015 | 12:10 pm
    Decades ago, the laptop planted the seed for what has now become one of today's most rapidly evolving workplace trends: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). Driven by the introduction of new technology, desire to increase employee productivity and interest in reduced liability, employers are embracing BYOD policies in droves - permitting employees to use personally owned iPads, tablets, computers and smartphones for work-related tasks. Whether in the office, at home or on-location, BYOD allows for effortless device connectivity and exchange of data and information anywhere, anytime.
  • SimpleWAN Well Positioned for Security-as-a-Service Growth

    The state of IT security is terrible - that is the only conclusion you can make, when breach after breach is reported by global media outlets. Keep in mind, these are only the breaches we hear about... countless others go unreported. Hackers are winning the war against companies and customers are caught in the crossfire. There is so much at risk: Millions of dollars of reputational damage, direct lost business, lawsuits and much more.
  • What to Expect from OpenStack

    27 Apr 2015 | 12:07 pm
    At the beginning of every year, I like to take a moment to look at how far where we've come from a technology perspective and to venture a guess at where I believe things are going. Some of the most formative and influential moments I had this year were related to the growth around OpenStack, which was especially notable after my return from each OpenStack summit. As such, I'm going to focus my predications for cloud trends around around OpenStack in 2015.

  • Why T-Mobile Is Winning Customers

    Andy Abramson
    26 Apr 2015 | 9:41 am
    I keep watching as T-Mobile is winning new customers and have to admit, that having been one of their customers for over 15 years, as well as with Verizon and AT&T, the Magenta network is constantly getting better. And they are doing a better job than the competition of telling the world that they are. Honestly, I haven't used my Verizon iPhone 5 that much since the iPhone 6s arrived. The first reason was how poor the voice quality on Verizon has become, especially on calls routed via Google Voice or Switch to the phone. This is the opposite when compared to T-Mobile, where the audio…
  • Just Call Me - Conference Call 3.0

    Andy Abramson
    23 Apr 2015 | 8:36 am
    I have seen the future of Conference Calling, and it's "Just Call Me." Just Call Me was created by Voxygen, the UK telecom product design company started by Dean Elwood (VoIP User, Truphone, etc.) Voxygen started up a few years back with the premise of approaching telephony as "Voice as a Service", the new Just Call Me service is currently only available for O2 users in the UK, but given Voxygen's relationships with Telefonica and other mobile carriers I suspect that won't be the case for long. (To learn more about Voxygen check out the profile from back in…
  • Twilio Goes Video, Puts Pressure On TokBox Now

    14 Apr 2015 | 7:24 am
    For the past two years, when it came to WebRTC video many early developers would look at TokBox and use their platform. Today, the heavyweight of heavyweights in developer programs, Twilio fired a broad shot across the bow and entered the fray. This is big news for WebRTC because Twilio has the key part of the equation. The developers. And that means a lot more than what they have in their stack. Their entry also begs the question how Genband will react as they have been tossing Kandy around for months but with hardly any news about deployments. Tsahi also raises the same concern I have…

    BlogGeek.Me has the skinny on Facebook Messenger using WebRTC, and it is big news. Messenger adding WebRTC is big news because it comes at a time when Skype has taken their eye off the ball. Skype is now chasing the business crowd, and in turn, not doing much to keep the consumer market loyal. And, the consumer market is what Facebook owns. The addition of real-time communications based voice and video by Facebook, something they have been trying to offer for many years going back to the earliest days of their apps, keeps people inside the universe of Messenger.

    Garrett Smith
    8 Apr 2015 | 9:11 am
    The feeding frenzy around Cloud VoIP companies continues and this time it’s not an VoIP industry incumbent at the table. Fresh off the news of Vonage’s acquisition of SimpleSignal for a total of $25 million, SAAS giant Citrix announced yesterday they were plucking Grasshopper, a cloud based phone system provider, from the field. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, though Grasshopper touts more than 150,000 entrepreneurs use their services, which starts at $12 per month. If these numbers are true, this would put Grasshopper’s annual revenues somewhere in the neighborhood of…
