The Future for Hybrid Cloud Strategies and the Role of the IT Department

Virtually every company is operating a hybrid cloud strategy today.  In fact, they have been for some time so it’s not really anything new.  At SafeNet, a hybrid cloud means that you have some technology and infrastructure that you operate and manage in house, and some that you rely on 3rd parties to operate and manage for you.  Payroll functions have, for many companies, been handled and processed by 3rd parties but other HR functions have been kept in internal IT systems.  Read More

In Licensing, The Best Defense is a Great Offense

In Licensing, The Best Defense is a Great Offense

Diehard baseball fans like me have found ourselves at the end of one of the best seasons Major League Baseball has had in years.  What truly distinguished this season is that the old adage of “defense wins titles” didn’t quite pan out. Instead, we got to see teams with ordinary starting pitching somehow make it to the championship games.

Focusing on offense over defense seems to be the trend lately in the software world too. Read More

Moving to the Cloud: Unshackling from the Desktop without Losing Track of Users

As an ISV, moving your application into the Cloud and offering it as a service is no trivial task.  How software is supplied and managed for the desktop is very different than as a service.  The usage and requirements of network connectivity, scaling, authentication and authorization, as examples, are all subtly different from the Enterprise model.

Once you get past the foundation of how to supply your application as a service, you need to solve the additional problems of authorization and utilization; or “Who has access to what?” and “How much are they using?”

SafeNet, Dell Boomi, and the Babel Fish

Ever since software systems have been around, people have been working to connect them together to get added benefit.  Sometimes that leads to large integrated all-in-one systems, sometimes it leads to efforts to standardise API’s and communications protocols and it almost always leads to lots of professional services.

In the cloud though, that’s changing.  One of the most innovative companies I have seen is Boomi (now Dell Boomi).   Their website does a better job of explaining their value proposition, but essentially it translates communications between systems – kind of like the Babel Fish (from HHGTTG), but for software.
