More Guidance On Regulations
Commentary  |  1/31/2006
We can all use a little guidance when it comes to identifying how regulations will affect our business processes and IT environments. The hard part is figuring out how compliance requirements change based on geographic variables and vertical markets. And such guidance is starting to emerge. Two directories/guides were recently announced; both are free after registration, but only one is currently available. The Object Management Group (OMG) and the OMG Regulat
Keep The Knives Away From Storage
Commentary  |  1/26/2006
Will storage concerns outweigh security this year? It seems like a stretch but that's what a recent survey by Glass House Technologies indicates. According to Glass House's "2006 Storage Budget Survey", 2006 will be a year for holding down costs and that means IT will be wringing out more efficiency from storage architectures. Now, Glass House is a provider of independent services that help organizations solve enterprise storage problems and focuses on in
If Compliance Costs Are Still Rising, Something Is Wrong
Commentary  |  1/24/2006
Analysts and vendors have been telling us Sarbanes-Oxley compliance costs should go down each year, but in a recent reader poll, more than half of our respondents claimed they are expecting just the opposite. A third of respondents did, however, expect their compliance costs will go down this year. That tells me one of three things is happening: Either the promised return on investment from tools already applied to the p
Vendor Partnerships Mean Added Functionality
Commentary  |  1/17/2006
Market dynamics often mean good news for users when it comes to technology products, especially when competition drives prices down, but there are other dynamics that work to your benefit; for instance, when vendors partner to deliver more features and services to round out their offerings. The market for compliance-related software and services is still young, and you've probably heard me warn here before not to expect these products to meet all your requirements. Not to say that all complianc
"You Want Fries With That?"
Commentary  |  1/9/2006
Need some cheering up this Monday morning? Venture capitalist Rick Segal describes how he turned a three-hour flight delay at Orlando airport into an opportunity to catch up on the TV show "Rome," get a good meal at Steak-n-Shake, and a free first-class upgrade. And he did it all using mobile computing technology. The story illustrates the truth of two old adages: 1) Knowledge is power and 2) It's nice to be important, b
Which Mobile Technologies Should You Bet On In 2006?
Commentary  |  1/6/2006
I don't have a good track record with regard to predictions about mobile computing. This is probably because I am an immobile kind of guy. I work from a home office adjacent to my bedroom, so most days consist of getting up, going into the next room to work, staying there all day, then going to the other side of the house for supper and TV. Unlike me, Dave Molta, of our sister Network Computing magazine, does know something about mobile technologies, and he has some predictions for
A Universe Of SOX Assistance
Commentary  |  1/6/2006
Two years into the regulation, the issues of Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, technical and otherwise, are so diverse and complex that an entire sub-industry has emerged to assist companies looking for resources, technology or just good old advice. Most of those resources have a Web presence, so from time to time I'll point you to some of the more useful Web content. Here's three sites to check out: The Sarba
Good Times For Microsoft. Bad Times For RIM?
Commentary  |  1/6/2006
Everyone saw a Windows Mobile-based Treo coming, and it arrived pretty much on time-just like Microsoft promised back in October. It doesn't come as a surprise to most that it will operate on Verizon Wireless' EV-DO network either. What really makes the news of the Treo intriguing is the fact that it arrives in the midst of RIM's second round of patent re-examinations.
