Verizon's Reawakening


Verizon is finally snapping out of the doldrums it has been stuck in for the last several years. It seems to be on a comeback trail, thanks to its new advertising campaign.

OpenWorld 2017


I spent last week at Oracle’s customer event, OpenWorld 2017, in San Francisco. When I wasn’t drinking from an information fire hose, it was alternately fascinating and exhausting. There were major announcements in database, blockchain, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and other stuff I’m associated with only tangentially. For instance, my eyes glaze over when they start talking about bare metal servers and going serverless, so I’ll limit my observations here to database and security, with a few dashes of other things.

Ten Billion


Salesforce announced the partial attainment of one of its long-range goals in its second-quarter earnings announcement last week: It eclipsed its goal of a $10 billion run rate.

Second quarter revenue hit $2.56 billion, a 26 percent increase year over year. Despite all the fanfare, anyone watching the evolution of the company and the market should not be surprised.
