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...

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.

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.

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

Date and Time: April 26, 2012, 2 p.m. EDT

Software quality has a direct impact on the brand image of the company that built and uses the software. Individuals and organizations responsible for the design, development, testing, and delivery of software that is vital to the business and people or those who must effectively manage a variety of challenges pertaining to quality should not miss this event.

Traditional challenges such as time-to-market, reduced costs, and increased customer satisfaction are compounded when cloud and mobile platforms are introduced. Organizations of all types—ISVs, enterprise IT, online providers, embedded systems groups, professional service organizations, device manufacturers, and telcos—must all adopt new software testing strategies to meet the rigorous demands of this changing business environment.

Lifecycle virtualization, development testing, and infrastructure test optimization help to deliver inventive ways of solving these traditional challenges. Today’s modern solutions work and can help to alleviate tactical activities and transform organizations of all types to more strategic teams with better technology and business alignment. In particular, as mobile devices and tablets “consumerize” the business application, quality, time-to-market, and costs all need to be optimized relative to the risks of new initiatives.

In this web seminar, voke's Theresa Lanowitz and Cognizant's James Mondi share examples across industries where strategic quality initiatives have been implemented to drive business outcomes and generate incrementally more business value. This web seminar will help you contextualize the strategies and processes around end-to-end quality with real life experiences and challenges.

You’ll learn:

  • How to build strategies for testing new-age applications as well as age-old computing problems
  • Methods to enhance quality and service delivery by establishing the right structure, process streamlining, and by leveraging technology
  • Implementation approaches for an end-to-end quality initiative and some of its pitfalls and challenges

Join voke principal analyst Theresa Lanowitz and Wayne Ariola, VP of Strategy at Parasoft, for a 45-minute webinar that:

  • Discusses the challenges that impede thorough and accurate testing of today's composite apps.
  • Explains the real-world impacts of such testing delays and limitations.
  • Introduces new technologies that enable testers to access the exact test environments they need—any time and anywhere.

You'll learn how service virtualization not only provides 24/7 access to the environments needed to test, but also significantly reduces the CAPEX and OPEX associated with establishing, configuring, and maintaining test environments. 

Date: Wednesday, April 25, 2012
Time: 1pm - 2pm ET


Almost daily, we see reports of software failures that harm enterprises and impact the brand, putting testing organizations and their efforts in the spotlight. Fortunately, testers are now in one of the most exciting times in the software industry’s history! Theresa Lanowitz describes how you can begin to use new technologies—cloud, virtualization, and mobility—to deliver more value to your company, enhance your career, and act as a change agent for higher quality. As organizations adopt cloud and mobile strategies, testers must be ready to deliver immediate value on these new platforms while test organizations must complement and extend their existing tools to ensure these new platforms meet the demands of the business—especially in the areas of performance and security. Theresa reports on the ways that leading organizations are using the cloud and virtualization to test over more platforms, deliver greater coverage, and find critical defects prior to production. Find out how your team can begin to use—or enhance your use of—these technologies while improving on all corners of the classic “cost, quality, schedule” triangle.

The link between software defects and business risk, including delayed time-to-market and lost customer satisfaction, is undeniable. To remain agile today and avoid quality control problems late in the cycle, requires testing be expanded beyond traditional QA testing into development.

In this live eSeminar leading industry analyst Theresa Lanowitz of voke, along with Coverity experts, will demonstrate why the key to success does not lie in adapting your current process, but in integrating development testing into your existing application or software development lifecycle.

During this informative 60-minute webinar, technology experts will explain:

  • The benefits of development testing, from faster time-to-market to enhanced visibility
  • How to transform your development organization to drive quality
  • How to foster better collaboration between Development and QA

Cloud computing is happening in a big way.  No wonder: infrastructure-as-a-service, resource elasticity, and user self-service promises huge, visible, and fast returns.

The needs of software development and testing  for scalable, flexible, compute-intensive IT infrastructure makes it an incredible candidate  for the benefits of cloud computing. Whether it is vast clusters for testing, dozens of machines to run ALM tools, or the requests for “just one more box,” development and test teams are always asking for something , it is always changing, and time is of the essence.

Join us as Theresa Lanowitz, the founder of analyst firm voke, discusses the utilization of cloud resources for test and development.  Theresa will share research showing how this approach can lead to lower costs, more productivity, and more predictability. Joining Theresa will be Anders Wallgren, CTO of Electric Cloud, who  will show how task and workflow automation, resource management, and tool integrations allow test and development  teams to effectively use a  cloud infrastructure.


The world of applications is transforming and increasingly complex. The demands for new technologies like cloud & mobile, distributed global teams and lean methodologies have made it even more difficult to maintain competitive advantage and contain IT development costs.

Every tester has heard “it works on my machine” from a developer, referring to a defect deemed to be non-reproducible. We all know the back-and-forth conversations and have yearned for ways to easily replicate test environment failures in the development environment. Test organizations often struggle with access to test environments that closely match production while the operations department struggles to keep up with the demand for provisioned environments. Virtual lab technology can solve these frequent, tedious, and expensive problems, delivering immediate productivity and return-on-investment. By shattering barriers between development, testing, and operations, virtual lab technology is transformational and promises to be the hub of the modern application lifecycle. Theresa Lanowitz shares the results of the “voke Market Snapshot” report on virtual lab management. This groundbreaking research is relevant, current, and something all testers and test managers need to know. Learn how to leverage virtual labs in your test organization while eliminating the age old developer-tester contention that “it works on my machine.”
