unique challenges and opportunities from these markets? How did the
constraints in connectivity among others lead to groundbreaking insights?

Cloud Expo Early Bird Savings
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers is emerging around cloud computing.
Here, SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Journal expands its list of most active
players in the fast-emerging Cloud Ecosystem, from the 'mere' 100 we
identified back in January of this year, to half as many again - testimony,
if any further were needed, to the fierce and continuing growth of the
"Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing.
Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various
services and solutions in this round-up are in e... (more)
Violin Memory, the high-speed flash memory array maker, quietly filed its
papers with the SEC last month to go public according to Bloomberg, which was
quoting "two people familiar with the matter."
It puts Violin's possible valuation at near $2 billion. At least that's what

Business Startups (JOBS) Act that lets wannabe public companies keep their
plans and financials secret until three weeks before the... (more)
Ed Sim's "Beyond VC" Blog
One thing is pretty clear to me from an investment perspective. I am not

Cloud this, Cloud that - the word cloud is clearly an overhyped word and
reminds me of the beginning of the hype around hosted models and ASPs
(application service providers) in the late 90s and the term SAAS today.
Anyway, as I look at announcement after announcement... (more)
In the interest of balance, today I'm waxing on about the awesome
opportunities presented by M&As - and some of the lessons I've learned along
the way to help things go a bit more smoothly.
M&As are one of the most powerful opportunities for a Phoenix to rise;
stronger, brighter, ready to soar into a leadership. After all, you're
bringing two companies together who presumably have complementary skill-sets,
products, market knowledge and customer bases. What could be MORE exciting?
Instead of investing time and dollars to build these assets - we have the
opportunity to blend the... (more)
