Infosys and MongoDB Join Migration Forces

Infosys and MongoDB Join Migration Forces

Next-generation MongoDB bolsters its existing partnership with outsourcing specialist Infoysys to launch a mainframe offloading solution complementing their existing application modernisation offering.

"For decades, mainframes have been used to store business-critical data. However, they are increasingly unable to optimally handle the scale and complexity of modern applications, especially in a cost effective way," MongoDB says. "Infosys has been helping the largest enterprises in the world strategically transform their business through application modernisation with MongoDB. Our joint mainframe offload solution will further enable enterprises to migrate the data for new, flexible applications off legacy systems while keeping the mainframe utilised for what it was originally designed for."

Microsoft: Windows 10 PCs total 500 Million

Microsoft opens the 2017 Build developer conference with the announcement that Windows 10 machines total 500 million, 8 months after it revealed 400m devices run on the latest version of the OS.

Back in April 2016 the company was hoping to have 1 billion devices running on Windows 10 by 2018. However, by July 2016 it was forced to revise the perhaps overly optimistic forecast, especially following the failure of Windows-powered smartphones to capture the imagination.

In fact, Microsoft was hoping to sell 50 million Windows 10 Mobile devices-- a number currently clocking at, well, around zero, leaving something of a gap in the expected userbase.

Gartner: Windows 10 Deployments Kicking Off

Gartner: Windows 10 Deployments Kicking Off

According to a Gartner survey migration to Windows 10 will be faster than previous OS adoption-- 85% of enterprises should start Windows 10 deployments by end 2017.

The survey involves 1014 respondents in 6 countries (France, the UK, the US, China, India and Brazil) and was held between September and December 2016. It shows the reason cited for migration to Windows 10 by most respondents (49%) is security improvements, followed by cloud integration capabilities (38%). However budgetary approval is not straightforward, since migration is not perceived as an immediate business-critical project.

"Organisations recognise the need to move to Windows 10, and the total time to both evaluate and deploy Windows 10 has shortened from 23 months to 21 months between surveys that Gartner did during 2015 and 2016," the analyst says. "Large businesses are either already engaged in Windows 10 upgrades or have delayed upgrading until 2018. This likely reflects the transition of legacy applications to Windows 10 or replacing those legacy applications before Windows 10 migration takes place."

Ubuntu Gives Up on Convergence

A blog post by Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth dashes the dream of PCs and smartphones running on the same version of Linux-- the company is going to stop working on Ubuntu for phones and tablets.

Instead, the next version of Ubuntu (18.04 LTS) will shift back to the GNOME desktop environment.

“We will continue to produce the most usable open source desktop in the world, to maintain the existing LTS releases, to work with our commercial partners to distribute that desktop, to support our corporate customers who rely on it, and to delight the millions of IoT and cloud developers who innovate on top of it,” Shuttleworth writes. "The choice, ultimately, is to invest in the areas which are contributing to the growth of the company."

Gartner: Intelligence and Analytics to Reach $18bn in 2017

Gartner: Intelligence and Analytics to Reach $18bn in 2017

According to Gartner, global business intelligence (BI) and analytics software revenues are to reach $18.3 billion in 2017-- a 7.3% increase from 2016, before growing to $22.8bn by end 2020.

The analyst says modern BI and analytics is expanding more rapidly than the overall market, offsetting declines in traditional BI spending. The modern BI and analytics platform emerged recently to meet new requirements for accessibility, agility and deeper analytical insight, shifting the market from IT-led, system-of-record reporting to business-led, agile analytics including self-service.

Mind, modern BI and analytics growth will eventually decelerate-- from 63.6% in 2015 to 19% in 2020. Such decline reflects data and analytics becoming mainstream, since pricing pressures will affect revenues despite growth in terms of seat expansion.
