Mono Resurrects Itself as Xamirin

When I was deeply involved in technology and company acquisitions at Novell, I learned the hard way how difficult it is to merge disparate corporate cultures. Money usually only helps a little. Company after company acquired by Novell disappeared from the planet. Often times with disastrous results. It was only on occasion that an acquisition yielded any measurable benefit. Then I heard the welcome surprise, Miguel announced the formation of Xamarin. Unlike the bumbling headless Attachmate strategy, he nails a clearly articulated plan and vision for Xamarin. “We believe strongly in...

IT Security’s little “Pulchinella Secret”

The European Identity Conference EIC, which recently ended here in Munich, had many highlights, but for me personally the very best was the keynote by the Italian psychologist Dr. Emilio Mordini, CEO of the Centre for Science, Society and Citizenship CSSC in Rome, which he describes as a leading independent research centre specializing in advice on political, ethical and social issues raised by emerging technologies. His topic was “Secrecy in the Post Wikileaks Era“, in itself a fascinating subject, but where it got really entertaining and thought-provoking was when he turned to the subject...

Advisory Note: IAM and GRC Market - the Evolution in 2011/2012 - 70180

IAM and GRC are two of today's most important IT market segments. Increasing regulatory pressures, as well as the ability to execute, drive the evolution of these market segments. KuppingerCole has recently scrutinized these segments, looking at the expected changes related to market growth, maturity, and cloud readiness. We expect to see significant changes within these market segments, with some of the newer technology sectors massively gaining momentum. In addition, this research note looks at the impact of investments in IAM, GRC, and some other key technology areas on the cost and...

Vendor Report: IBM Cast Iron Systems - 70103

Application integration is a key requirement to support the business requirements for flexible business processes, spanning a variety of applications. With the cloud and an increasing number of SaaS services, e.g. applications hosted in the cloud, integration moves to a new level of complexity. The integration of cloud and on-premise application services requires new types of integration platforms and new deployment models for these platforms. The platforms should be available as cloud service and for on-premise deployments to support the different scenarios of IT environments from...

Cloud Computing Overview - 70140

The Cloud is an environment which allows the delivery of IT services in a standardized way.   This standardization makes it possible to optimize the procurement of IT services from both external and internal providers.   The Cloud covers a wide spectrum from shared applications delivered over the internet to virtual servers hosted internally.  The risks associated with Cloud computing depend upon both the service model and the delivery model adopted.   The common security concerns across this spectrum are ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and...

Bringing the Web to Life at Last

It isn’t very often that an Internet principle comes along that is so important that it actually affects almost everyone and everything. The Live Web  is one of those Internet principles. The Static Web — the Internet as we know it today — has no thread of knowing or context. Until now, there has not been enough infrastructure in existence for a computer to do the work of presenting the Internet in a context of purpose. The Live Web presents an infrastructure and architecture for automating context on the internet. The Live Web brings to life the notion of context automation. The term...

Welcome Craig Burton!

Today marks a milestone in the history of KuppingerCole, since today is the day we welcome the youngest member of our team. Did I say “young”? Sorry, wrong word. Of course he isn’t really the oldest – that’s still me. But he ain’t exactly no spring chicken, either. I’m talking about Craig Burton, of course. Yes, that Craig Burton. The guy who founded The Burton Group. The same guy who almost single-handedly defined what it means to be an analyst in the Identity & Access Management workplace. The one of the leading lights in our industry, grayest of “eminence gris” in a field where...

The Sony case - or how to best ignore security best practices

The data theft at Sony has been in the headlines for some days now. What makes me most wonder is that - from what I've read and heard first - even the passwords were stored unencrypted. However, Sony claims to have used a hash to protect these passwords. It looks like Sony also has stored the credit card numbers plus the associated security codes (which are, by the way, one of the most ridiculous approaches to enhance security) together and, no surprise, unencrypted. But if Sony has used hash values: Why did everyone assume that these passwords become common knowledge (at least for the...
