In today’s enterprise, the consumerization of IT has led to many interesting developments in Enterprise Mobility space. Based on my reading of various industry reports by market analysts, I anticipate that year 2013 will witness these key trends in the world of enterprise mobility.

Social Media integration or ability to use social networking portals for furthering the business using viral marketing effect is with us for a long time now. We have also learned that it is a two sided weapon, whereby, it can promote your product by leaps and bounds via a viral positive feedback, and also do irreparable damage by a similar negative one! So the obvious next step is promoting bi directional communication between companies and customers using social media and analyzing the customer feedback to use crowd sourcing for business benefit.
All these viral interactions generate humongous amount of data – big data – characterized by three Vs: Volume, Velocity and Variety. This informal and unstructured social media data is mostly (more…)

Working with XCode IDE, I had always felt the need for a top-level entity that could support and organize my multiple XCode projects. It wasn’t easy to access the files of one project from another in XCode 3.2, even if you had cross project references between them. Code sharing was always an issue if two or more projects used the same libraries and we had to copy them into each project folder separately.
Introduction of “Workspaces” brings in one of the new bits of “magic” that XCode 4 does for you: Multiple-Project Support. A workspace is basically a container meta-file that groups together multiple projects and other documents. It also provides implicit and explicit relationships among the included projects and their respective targets. (more…)

Since we all used big table in Google Labs & Facebook there is always a mentioning about performance these portals have provided. There are many articles/blogs/stories published on the same and all in all it stops at NoSQL. Early this year, when Netflix migrated to use NoSQL successfully, now almost everyone wants to evaluate this technique further. As first major NoSQL Now Conference started in August (August 23 – 25) this post is to give quick introduction of NoSQL and touch base pointers that will help in evaluating its use in existing or future projects.
NoSQL commonly expanded to ‘Not Only SQL’. In my observations, mostly it’s been considered as an alternative to RDMS as we are used to ‘SQL’ means RDBMS because of its popularity. In fact it’s not an alternative; it’s a different database model with set of (more…)

Microsoft recently released .Net 4.0. It is to the credit of Microsoft, which has made constant improvements in their .Net versions, shown below. Here is a small infographic that shows their progress from version 2.0 through 4.0.
.Net Framework Stack
I do not see 4.0 as a package that is full of new features, but what I do see is that there are important improvements in performance, and a stress on doing more parallel processing and multi tasking. This is in contrast to version 3.0 release, which was outstanding with new features like Windows Presentation Framework, Windows Communication Foundation and Workflow. Regardless, it is interesting to see the overall developments, and what all we got from 2.0 to 4.0 as a whole. (more…)

Over three years ago, Andrew McAfee wrote an insightful post on The 9X Email Problem. In the post backed by research of a colleague from Harvard, Andrew makes a case for Enterprise 2.0 software to be nine times better than Email to be accepted by businesses and their decision makers.
The number nine, he and his colleague say, comes from the multiplier effect of two pieces of irrational behavior displayed by consumers. (more…)
