No individual can really track and understand the impact of change in all the
emerging technologies like Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing, Social Media,
Agile Methodology and Big Data …
You can realistically aim to have an in depth understanding of only a small
subset. By in depth understanding I mean you know significantly more about
the subset than a person who has spent about an hour Googling the topic.
Let me talk about the subset that I have been exploring in depth and why.
Cloud Computing: How is the cloud value proposition changing over time?
Mobile Computing: What are the options to handle multi-platform application
development challenge? Social Media: How is Hyper-connectivity changing out
life? Agile Methodology: How Agile can co-exist with Outsourcing?

Just because your password meets complexity requirements does not necessarily
make it a strong password. It is a given that many sites require you to have
a password of a minimum length of at least six or eight characters, and some
go so far as to require the addition of a number and at least one upper case
letter. At first glance, this gives the appearance of a complex password
that, in theory, should be harder to crack. If we consider a blind brute
force attack that starts at six characters with “000000” and cycles
through every combination of upper and lower case letters and numbers through
“zzzzzz”, this is essentially true.
The problem is that automated password attacks have become intelligent in the
sense that hackers have added “Pattern Matching” and LEET algorithms.

streaming data analytics platform, has been recognized as a leader in The
Forrester Wave™: Big Data Streaming Analytics Platforms, Q3 2014 from

used increasingly as new sources of data become common, such as streaming
sensor data from the Internet of Things, streaming social media data like
Twitter, and streaming mobile information from apps.
According to Forrester, "The velocity of business demands streaming

New Media on Ulitzer
Another incident on the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) hits YouTube, and the
world is once again asking the question if BART Police are using too much
force, the police acted appropriately, or if BART passengers simply recorded
a snapshot in time that could be interpreted at a later date. In the recent
past, to find out what happened during an incident such as the most recent
BART scuffle, you would be dependent on a newspaper's beat journalist to hang
around a police station. He'd get a copy of the official police report,
perhaps talk with one of his friends on the force, and transcribe what he
Now news and media are real time. You can get Twitter tweets and video feeds

Loni Stark, group manager for Government Solutions at Adobe Systems
Incorporated, recently interviewed with Focus Washington TechView to discuss
the emergence of social media in government and how agencies are leveraging
newer technologies, such as Twitter and Facebook, with positive returns.
Social media has illustrated government agencies can interact with citizens
in a more engaging manner versus the traditional perception of "cold,"
impersonal processes, Stark explained.
A significant opportunity for agencies, she continued, is learning how to
take lessons from social media technologies, such as their ease-of-use and
intuitive nature, and apply them to core services like benefits enrollment
The interview also included conversation on related challenges, such as
ensuring proper policies and governance are in place, as well as appropriate
Microsoft Session at Cloud Expo
Many people have wondered what has taken Microsoft so long to update its
lackluster Windows Mobile platform. It finally did it! At the Mobile World
Congress in Barcelona, Microsoft introduced the Windows Phone 7 Series, its
latest operating system for phones. The Software giant’s Windows Mobile has
been getting the short end of the stick and stood no chance to compete with
the likes of iPhones, Blackberries and Android devices. It was also
embarrassingly ignored by apps developers who spearheaded the success of
Apple’s devices and now are bestowing their undivided attention on Android.
Microsoft's mobile system appeared in 13.1 percent of smart phones sold in
the U.S. last year, according to research firm In-Stat making it No. 3 after
Research in Motion’s BlackBerry and the iPhone. But Microsoft has been fast
losing its relevance in ... (more)
What metrics matter for social media and networking?
Of course the answer should be it depends.
For example, would that be number of followers or how many posts, tweets or
videos you post?
How about the number of page hits, pages read or unique visitors to a site,
perhaps time on site?
Or, how about the number of times a visitor returns to a site or shares the
link or information with others?
What about click through rates, page impressions, revenue per page and
Maybe the metric is your blog ranking or number of points on your favorite
community site such as Storage Monkeys or Wikibon among others?
Another metrics could be number of comments received particularly if your
venue is more interactive for debate or discussion purposes compared to a
site with many viewers who prefer to read (lurk). Almost forgot number of
