This is the second article in this series on SAP's announced intent to
acquire Syclo. You can read Part 1 here.
I am now on my second cup of coffee, a different day, but still pondering
SAP's announced acquisition of Syclo. On the Linkedin group, SAP
Enterprise Mobility (you should all join!), I conducted a poll. The
question was, “Do you think SAP's announced intention to acquire mobility
vendor Syclo is a good move?" Here are the poll results and comments as of
this afternoon (73 respondents):
78% - YES 15% - NO 6% - I don’t know
It seems the overwhelming opinion is that it will be a good thing, however,
many of the comments seemed to reflect more frustration from the SAP
ecosystem than the poll numbers reflected. IT departments and systems
integrators are obviously having a challenge keeping up with this rapidly
evolving field and SAP's moves.

As many readers may know, Facebook replaced their HTML5 version of their
mobile app a few weeks ago, in favor of a native application written in
Object C. It is much faster and smoother now, however, several functions
disappeared with this change. You can no longer just steal your friends
photos by holding down on the image and selecting "Save Image." You can
also no longer simply swipe to delete a snarky comment that seemed funny when
it first entered your brain, but now seems ill conceived (I used this a
lot!), and pasted links are now handled awkwardly. This is the give and
take between HTML5 and native applications that makes our lives interesting.

A few months back, Gartner placed big data at the peak of its hype cycle for
cloud computing, meaning most big data products are solutions looking for a
problem. I always find this bad entrepreneurial habit to be one of the most
frustrating of our industry. Having recently joined Meltwater as head of
marketing and product (BTW Meltwater is hiring marketing and product
managers!), I think a lot about big data and how to unleash it’s value to
solve important business problems, because that is our business. How does big
data go from “so what” to “must have”?
The Big Data Challenge
Big data is a by-product of the Internet and the ever increasing power of
computers. Kind of like petroleum sludge. We know there must be great value
buried within this vast, raw resource, but the challenge lies in figuring out
how to turn it into something useful like plastic, or the other th... (more)
** Hot Tip **Free Developers Edition of either SAP Sybase ASE or IQ!
The developer's edition has most license options enabled, but only
restricted with a light limit of 25 user connections and may not be used for
production purposes. When you're running ASE on Linux you won't be able to
run it on older versions of Linux such as RedHat 7.x - you really need to run
RH Enterprise Linux (or similar).
The free Developer's Edition for ASE 16.0 can be downloaded here
(available on all supported ASE platforms).
IQ A free Express Edition of IQ 16.0 for Linux/Intel and Windows (all
64-bit only) can be downloaded here. The IQ Express Edition is limited to 5
Gb of data space and most (but not all) IQ options are included.
=> There is no time limit with these versions of ASE or IQ

** Hot News **SAP withdraws PowerBuilder 15!
In a surprise move this week, SAP cancelled the much anticipated
PowerBuilder 15 release and released instead PowerBuilder version 12.6. The
product announcement was made by PB product manager Sue Dunnell on the SAP
website (click here).
The new features of PB 12.6 are mainly focused on PowerBuilder Classic.
Highlights include: support for OData; 64 bit compilation (note that the IDE
is still 32 bit); and Dockable Windows. Due to the limited new feature list,
speculation in the PB Community is that SAP decided not to release PB 15 as
this would be an embarrassment after nearly 4 years since PB 12.5 was
SAP currently has no solid road-map for PB 15 and the last update for this
was in 2011. So it is unclear where SAP will take PB in the future -
especially given PB.Net`s lackluster adoption in the market place... (more)

ReadWriteWeb published SAP Plans to Dominate Enterprise Mobile Apps with
HTML5 and New Partnerships article a few days ago. SAP acquired a mobile
development firm Syclo and also announced important partnerships with
Appcelertaor, Adobe (PhoneGap) and Sencha to become “…most powerful
enterprise mobile developers in the world”.
Dan Rowinksi makes a number of very good points.
Enterprise mobile development is different from its consumer counterparts.
The objectives of enterprise apps often have less to do with mobile device
performance and more to do with functionality. Consumer app development often
centers on games and location, testing how well an app can perform within the
bounds of a mobile device’s hardware. While location is an increasingly
important feature for many enterprises, communication, data management and
collaboration are the real drivers in enterprise... (more)
