Boulder, CO (PRWEB) July 28, 2014

On Wednesday, July 30, 2014, NuoDBs CTO, Seth Proctor, will provide a brief overview of NuoDB as a company, and then explain in detail the unique features/benefits of the NuoDB peer-to-peer architecture and distributed durable cache.

Changes wrought by the exponential growth of mobile devices, web-scale applications and cloud computing all call for new approaches in data management. I look forward to explaining how NuoDB offers a unique architecture specifically designed to tackle these challenges, said Mr. Proctor. BBBT provides a strong platform for reaching top influencers in the marketplace.

Developers of analytical environments struggle with unpredictable scalability. An ideal DBMS would scale elastically – up and down depending on changing requirements, said BBBT Founder, Claudia Imhoff. NuoDB, because of its roots in cloud computing, promises just such an environment. I look forward to hearing more on this critical issue from them at our next BBBT.

A podcast summarizing the presentation will be available at the BBBT Podcasts page, and a video of the presentation will be available at the BBBT Videos Page.

21% of SMBs Have IT Specialists Reporting to Business Management Thereby Blurring the IT-Business Divide

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2014

Techaisles study on 360 on SMB & Mid-Market IT Decision Making Authority – BDM vs. ITDM reveals an emerging trend of IT specialists with purchase authority being resident within business units and reporting to business rather than IT management. The data is significant enough for marketers to pay close attention as the survey shows that already in 21 percent of small (1-99 employees) and 36 percent of midsized (100-999 employees) businesses, IT Specialists are embedded within business units and even more are planning to hire specialists within their business units. Further, the study also shows that these IT specialists are an important influence point for new IT solutions purchase and that in 29 percent of small businesses and 49 percent of mid-sized firms that have business unit resident IT specialists these staff members are the primary decision makers for new IT solution purchases. This trend will naturally tilt the balance of decision making authority towards business management by empowering them with knowledge and decision-making agility.

The need for IT and business to work together to ensure that all stages of IT adoption process meet both technical and business process requirements is an important factor in IT solution success. Survey data clearly demonstrates that SMBs have taken this a step further to address the need for what is sometimes referred to as double deep employees (with respect to IT and business experience) by positioning IT specialists within business units reporting to business (rather than IT) management. In a way, these IT Specialists reporting to Business Management in SMBs are blurring the IT and Business divide.

Small businesses – informal

The trend is widespread and informal in small businesses in the 10-99 employee size categories with 45 percent of firms reporting the presence of IT specialists within business units. In most cases this is an informal connection with IT-savvy employees responsible for IT-dependent processes.

Mid-market businesses – pronounced

However, within mid-sized businesses the trend is more pronounced and is becoming a more conscious strategy with IT support embedded within the line of business departments. As the balance of IT decision making authority continues to shift towards business decision makers the presence of IT specialists who can identify appropriate IT solutions within a mid-market business unit is gaining tremendous relevance. This also means that rogue implementations of solutions may well accelerate. More importantly, in the next 3-5 years it is highly likely that a business unit will begin to think and operate like an IT department as they learn from their missteps.

IT or BDM-led Solutions

To understand an SMB buyers journey, Techaisle research considered nine IT solution categories and the influence of various stakeholders from needs identification to selection and adoption process. At a high-level the nine IT solutions were found to belong to one of three categories IT-led solutions, areas where IT is generally seen as leading corporate IT initiatives; BDM-led solutions, solutions in which BDMs provide most corporate leadership, and IT is cast very much in a supporting role; and IT/BDM collaborative solutions that respond to BDM needs, but where IT is important to supporting delivery capacity. The positioning of these solutions is important to shaping the focus of IT vendor sales and marketing initiatives.

It is important for IT suppliers to understand whether their current and prospective accounts have IT specialists assigned within business units, and where they do, to establish strong relationships that will enable the supplier to understand and respond to IT/business solution demand.

About the Study: 360 on SMB & Mid-Market IT Decision Making Authority – BDM vs. ITDM

To understand the current state and implications of distributed IT influence and authority Techaisle conducted a unique survey of SMB organizations where we surveyed roughly equal numbers of business decision makers (BDMs) and IT decision makers (ITDMs) across seven employee size categories, and then analyzed results to create a unified view of the new IT decision authority realities.

The study covers:

Project Management Software Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2014

Project management software has a buyer power score of 4.0 out of 5. This score reflects favorable market conditions for buyers due to stable prices and low market risks. Still, buyer negotiating power is restrained by moderate market share concentration and high switching costs.

Recent pricing trends have been beneficial to buyers in the three years to 2014, according to IBISWorld analyst Andrew Yang. Although prices have increased slightly, the increase has been mitigated by several factors. Many other software applications can act as substitutes for project management software. Suppliers cannot raise prices too high or they risk losing buyers to these substitute applications. Furthermore, project management software is still in the growth stage of the product life cycle. Suppliers are inclined to keep prices low to encourage buyers to try out their product. Due to increased demand, prices are forecast to continue rising slowly in the three years to 2017, but will remain relatively stable. Stable prices are beneficial for buyers because they allow buyers to better plan their budgets and manage their costs. Buyers can take their time in evaluating vendors because they do not have to worry about prices rising significantly.

Buyers also benefit from very low market risks. Project management software vendors are not dependent on any inputs that may result in supply disruptions or price shocks. Because the average vendor is financially stable, there is low risk of bankruptcy, says Yang. Low market risks benefit buyers by ensuring that vendors can provide steady access to project management software. Current major vendors include Oracle, Microsoft, Planview and CA Technologies.

Buyer negotiating power is lowered by moderate market share concentration and high switching costs. Project management software is relatively new and buyers tend to purchase this software from software corporations with established brand names. High market share concentration is negative for buyers because vendors will have increased leverage in setting prices. Buyers of project management software also face high switching costs, meaning that buyers cannot easily switch to other vendors and may end up locked in with a supplier.

Additionally, state government organizations, such as the State of Maryland, also use the spreadsheet-inspired tool to coordinate a wide variety of work processes and projects including election logistics, constituent programs, IT projects, wetland research, and grant management.

GSA, which is leading the federal governments charge to the cloud, adopted a Google-based email and calendar system in mid-2011. Now, theyre further extending their ecosystem with the Smartsheet deployment. The unique combination of the easy-to-use spreadsheet interface, file sharing, powerful project management capabilities, such as Gantt charts and automated workflows, plus the seamless integration with Google, were all key factors in its decision to select Smartsheet.

Secure, cloud-based business apps like Smartsheet are growing in popularity with government agencies as the organizations struggle with increasing pressure to lower operational and capital IT expenses.
