It Takes More Than a Fast CPU to Rule the Web
Compaq Computer Corporation, desperate to get some kind of high-end UNIX benefit from its ill-conceived acquisition of Digital Equipment Corp., has announced

sun spec  intend to go after Sun Microsystems (the current leader) in that regard. Rather, the focus appears to be on the traditional strengths of the former Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) hardware - datacenter, high performance technical computing (HPTC), and internal infrastructure (e.g., e-mail, process management). This is not necessarily a bad thing, just a defocusing of the official Internet infrastructure effort. We are concerned that Compaq's current Alpha marketing strategy appears to be

Oracle Splurges on MICROS Systems


Oracle announced its intent to acquire MICROS Systems, Inc., a provider of integrated software and hardware solutions to the hospitality and retail industries, for approximately $5.3 billion in cash (or $4.6 billion net of MICROS’ cash on hand). While skeptics might see this move as Oracle throwing money at its sluggish growth problem, Oracle must see some value in MICROS’ target industries.

IFS Ends Year with a Few Bangs


IFS has had a pretty decent time of late, but the company has apparently had a great end to 2013 if one judges by a slew of new win announcements. Senior analyst P.J. Jakovljevic details the company's latest acquisitions and looks ahead to what we might expect from IFS in 2014.

I think historically IFS has been seen as a leader in the operational side of ERP, production, asset management, service management, etc., but not as a solution that was able to compete against SAP, Oracle, Infor , and the like in strictly a corporate solution selection.   Now the market is increasingly recognizing that IFS is able to compete in this space, in Read More

Tentative Unification in Server I/O Architecture Battle


The Next Generation I/O (NGIO) and Future I/O groups have agreed to unify their efforts to develop the next I/O architecture.

Analysis of Novell's Announced Support for Sun's Solaris 8 Operating Environment


We do not see Sun Solaris administrators implementing any Novell NDS package.

The Sun Solaris 8 operating system is a 64 Bit LDAP enabled system, which is far from needy in the Directory Services arena. We do not anticipate any anti-competitive measures which would emanate from Sun, in light of Novell's offering, simply because we believe the product will not sell into UNIX shops. Novell has also compiled a version of the GroupWise Messaging/Groupware server specifically for the Sun Solaris 8 operating Read More
