In search of privacy

Way back in 1999, Scott McNealy – then the chief executive officer of Sun Microsystems – famously said that consumer privacy issues are a "red herring." He went on to say: "You have zero privacy anyway, get over it." Yet just in the past two weeks privacy has been much in the news on many counts. A French court ruled that pictures of Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, sunbathing topless were an invasion of her privacy since there was a reasonable expectation that she would be unobserved while poolside at a private residence hundreds of meters from a public vantage point. (The photographer...

Security by obfuscation

The reaction to the security alert for Windows Explorer recently revealed an interesting phenomenon: Many people believe in security by obfuscation. I alerted some people when I first saw the news concerning that security issue. Some reacted by saying: “I like my Apple iBook” or “I’ve use other browsers for a long time”. No doubt, these people are not affected by that Internet Explorer security issue. But the underlying message in these comments is about “security by obfuscation”. Today I read another news story about iOS 6 which addresses more than 200 security issues, which allow...

Salesforce Identity

Identity Management as a Service (IdMaaS) gets a new 500lb guerilla Introduction When I first heard of Salesforce’s Identity announcements this week at Dreamforce, I was reminded of the old joke “Q:Where does a 500lb. gorilla sit? A: Anywhere he wants.” Salesforce Identity makes Salesforce the new 500lb gorilla in the Digital Identity jungle. Announcement Details You can read the basic details of the announcement on Chuck Mortimore’s blog. Here is a quick summary: What is Salesforce Identity? Salesforce Identity provides Identity and Access Management (IAM) services for Web and mobile...

Advisory Note: API Economy Ecosystem - 70625

The nascent API Economy is rapidly maturing and is shaping up to be both promising and challenging. Meeting the challenges of The API Economy will be as important for customers as embracing the personal computer was in the 1980s or embracing the mobile and tablet trends are today. Customers are faced with the challenge of understanding the distinction of being both an API consumer and an API Provider. Further it has become imperative that customers begin to put infrastructure in place—hopefully from a trusted API consumer or provider technology vendor—to manage the...

You can view the webinar in its entirety on the KuppingerCole website. To us, the best measurement of interest in any given webinar is the drop off rate. Just how many people drop off during the presentation? We were very pleased in the interest of the topic for the number of attendees and for that fact that no one dropped off from the presentation and Q&A....

Identity in a Post-PC Era

How 400M iOS devices changes everything Most of the planet at least paid a little bit of attention to the announcement of the iPhone 5 on Sept. 12th. The anticipation for the announcement was so high, that sales of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s actually dipped some in the last quarter. While I like all of the things Apple has done with the new iPhone — and I have already ordered mine — I found the other information given at the announcement to be astounding. The numbers — presented in the keynote by CEO Tim Cook — were more than just significant. Especially when viewed from the perspective...

The misunderstood cloud

With apologies to The Animals – Baby, do you understand me now? Sometimes I feel a little mad But don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel When things go wrong I feel real bad.  I'm just a cloud whose intentions are good Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood When Citrix recently surveyed 1000 people, it found that 51% think bad weather affects cloud computing. 17% have pretended to understand cloud computing while on a date. 40% said the biggest advantage to cloud computing was the ability to work from home, naked. And, of those who profess to have never used cloud...
