UX – No Time To Kill

There’s no time to kill between the cradle and the grave
Father Time still takes a toll on every minute that you save
Legal tenders never gonna change the number of your days
The highest cost of livin’s dyin’, that’s one everybody pays
So have it spent before you get the bill, there’s no time to kill

Come back when we’re open

I subscribe to Microsoft Office 365 and had a payment stuck on an expired credit card. Even though there was a new card, the billing system kept trying the old one.

In a modern cloud service, I would open a service request and expect things to be handled for me. But this is Microsoft. And with the arrogance of the monopolist they used to be, they require you to please show up when they feel (more...)

Moving Forward

Seems to be quite a bit of buzz in the enterprise software user community these days about moving forward.  Budgets have loosened up, users want better experiences, in-house IT providers want to reduce maintenance and infrastructure investments, C-level officers want better and more timely information on strategic initiatives, and everybody wants to be agile (even though there are multiple visions of agile, we all want it).  So it seems the big question lately is "how (more...)

Oracle on Windows Azure pricing revealed

I just noticed that prices for Oracle Database running on Windows Azure have now been published.



The prices for the virtual machines with the Oracle license included run from about USD 820 per month for Oracle Standard Edition (SE) running on 2 cores, to a whopping USD 9300 per month for Oracle Enterprise Edition (EE) running on 8 cores. These prices are for Oracle software only and do not include the cost of the VM, (more...)

The death grip of Enterprise vendors

I’ve just been comparing a number of online Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems. In this project, I had the opportunity to sign up to the free trial for various services as well as cancelling these demo accounts.

Modern CRM systems like Highrise, CapsuleCRM, and Batchbook all had a button or a link to cancel or delete an account, with appropriate warnings. But the 800-pound gorilla of CRM, Salesforce, did not. In fact, (more...)

Problems when doing a V2V or P2V of a windows server to Oracle VM

Some time ago, I received the request to migrate some Windows 2008 Servers to my Oracle VM farm and after complete the P2V migration the newly create VM would not start. It would crash on boot with blue screen and error: STOP: 0x0000007B (0xXXXXXXXX,0xXXXXXXXX,0×00000000,0×00000000) This issue is related to the storage drivers needed for the guest […]

Could Oracle Cloud Trump Amazon Web Services?

OK, we all read or heard it recently in one form or another.  Oracle has told Amazon that it’s “game on” for leadership in the “commodity” Infrastructure as a Service (“IaaS”) market.  In other words, “we’ll beat you on price”.  Lots have folks have called the declaration crazy - Oracle can’t compete with Amazon on the basis of commodity pricing and never will.  Funny thing is, I think Oracle could actually (more...)

Xprtly – Extreme Coolness

Something cool happened today…something extremely cool.  Xprtly was released into public beta.

What in the heck is Xprtly?  The best way to describe it is a cloud-based support platform, with a mobile application and a web interface for administration.  The idea is to connect users with support personnel who can respond to issues as they arise.  Xprtly also allows for data collection of both user and support personnel behavior, plus analytics (more...)

Changes In Attitude

It's these changes in attitude, changes in latitude
Nothing remains quite the same
For all of our running and all of our cunning
If we didn't laugh, we would all go insane

The Impact of SaaS – The Times They Are A-Changin’

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they (more...)
