CXO Insight: Do We Really Need Kubernetes at the Edge?
Last week I attended Edge Field Day 1, a Tech Field Day event focused on edge computing solutions. Some of the sessions really made me think.

Chairs, towels and GPS devices: where’s the line for analyst event swag?
Cisco gave me a chair once. It wasn’t just me, you understand – they handed one out to every person that attended their analyst event, at their UK offices at Bedfont Lakes. It was a lovely chair – one of those collapsible ones you might want to take camping, but this one had an extra […]

So, where has it come from and how can today’s solutions help? To answer […]
What do GigaOm analysts see as the big trends in 2023?

Costs are driving, and consolidation, better architectures and more and governance are following, they told me – while this will cause a wave of uncertainty, you can be taking steps now to get ahead.

In Software Development, Address Complexity and the Rest Will Follow
Where is DevOps going? Is it ‘dead’ as some are suggesting, to be replaced by other disciplines such as platform engineering? I would proffer that while it was never as simple as that, now is as good a moment as any to reflect on approaches such as those discussed in DevOps circles. So, let’s consider […]
