Apple Improves Enterprise Business With SVDS Hires?

According to TechCrunch Apple is maintaining its long-term enterprise strategy with the hiring of 18 employees from Silicon Valley Data Science (SVDS), a startup providing data science-powered consultations.

A comment from an anonymous person connected with SVDS says the purchase will "support product dev ambitions," and at least some people who have recently updated their LinkedIn profiles to show they work at Apple used to work at SVDS.

One such person is SVDS co-founder and CEO Sanjay Mathur, whose LinkedIn profile now tells he is a strategy and analytics leader at Apple. Another is another SVDS co-founder, CTO John Akred, whose LinkedIn job description reads "algorithms at Apple."

Intel to Cut Intel Inside Program?

According to CRN Intel plans to slash the "Intel Inside" program by 40-60%-- cuts that will "reverberate through the industry," bringing about anything from PC prices increases to marketing cutbacks.

An anonymous source described as a "top executive for a major Intel partner" says funds making the program are being shifted towards driving datacentre business, "giving more to the data side of the house instead of compute." This means Chipzilla is moving dollars in other areas or keeping them in house, all in the name of improving profit and margins.

Meanwhile, an unidentified "CEO of a major solution provider" adds the funding cut will bring a "ripple effect" across the Intel ecosystem, before saying it is "disappointing, but it's not surprising," considering the cost challenges the company currently faces. Another CRN source simply says that he has "moved on" and partnered with other CPU makers, such as AMD.
