Each week the ServicesAngle has a conference call to discuss the week’s news and trends. It usually includes Editor Alex Williams; Wikibon analyst Jeff Kelley and myself. Sometimes we just do voice calls, other times we do videoconferencing. Sometimes we bring other people into the conversations. Wikibon and SiliconAngle are all about collaboration and transparency, so, we’ve decided to start sharing these conversations.
This week it was just the three of us, discussing Node.js, big data, Splunk competitors, EMC’s latest Hadoop play and whether Hadoop will see mainstream adoption and what that will mean for the enterprise.
- A high level overview of what Node.js is, how it’s being used and what it means for traditional IT infrastructure like network and storage (see also: Node.js: Unprecedented Growth Distorts True Acceptance).
- The relationship between Node.js and big data (see also: A Perfect Match: When Big Data Met Node.js).
- The rise of Splunk and its competitors Loggly and SumoLogic.
- EMC’s latest Hadoop offering.
- A discussion on whether Hadoop will ever go mainstream and whether all organizations must become engineering organizations.
I’ll be gone next week, but keep an eye on our Twitter stream for announcements about a live broadcast. Otherwise keep an eye here for notes or recordings from the next meeting.
