The cloud has had a transformational impact on businesses of all sizes - from small and midsized businesses (SMBs) to large enterprises - and it's showing no signs of slowing down.According to analyst house Gartner, the use of cloud computing is still growing and will become the bulk of new IT spend by 2016, a year that the company predicts will see hybrid cloud overtake private cloud, with nearly half of large enterprises having deployments by the end of 2017.Despite its high uptake, the most suitable route into the cloud is not always so clear cut for many organisations moving on from the tried and tested client-server model.To shed light on the advantages and disadvantages of cloud computing's three main service delivery models - software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) - we spoke to Mike Kavis, VP and Principal Architect for Cloud Technology Partners and author of 'Architecting the cloud'.TechRadar Pro: Can you summarise the … [Read more...] about SaaS, PaaS and IaaS: which cloud service model is for you?

What Is Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS)? When we talk about databases being consumed as cloud services, we're talking about Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS). While this isn't a silver bullet that will simplify the lives of anyone who requires a database for some task or application development project, DBaaS is not only simple, it's flexible. It has many of the benefits and disadvantages common to other services in the cloud, such as better cost controls on the one hand but more limited features than the on-premises alternative on the other hand. However, it also doubles as engine-style software that powers a large array of other Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) apps, everything from directly related data visualization tools to organization-spanning enterprise resource planning (ERP) platforms. But DBaaS is also a solution unto itself with pros and cons unique to database functionalities. Benefits of DBaaS include lower entry barriers, greater access to technologies that were previously only in … [Read more...] about The Best Database-as-a-Service Solutions for 2019

Microsoft keeps making boring software look really sexy. Earlier this year the software giant put out sizzle videos for SharePoint and Windows Terminal, which were highly produced and looked like the type of video you’d see for a new Surface device. At Microsoft’s Ignite conference last week, the company quietly released three new sizzle videos for Yammer, Tasks, and the Fluid Framework. All three follow the same sizzle approach as the SharePoint video from earlier this year, seeking to turn what is typically boring software into something much more desirable. Yammer is used by companies as a private social networking service, and Microsoft is overhauling it with a new design that’s more integrated with Teams, SharePoint, and Outlook. To celebrate this new design, Microsoft’s sizzle video includes reams of paper for conversations, tiny buttons that represent avatars, and a focus on dark mode options. It makes Yammer seem fun to use, instead of the boring … [Read more...] about Microsoft’s new videos make boring software look sexy again
Target has acquired San Francisco-based transportation technology company Grand Junction, in order to help it move more quickly into the business of same-day delivery. The company had already been working with Target on a same-day delivery pilot program in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood, prior to this deal. That pilot will expand this fall to more New York area stores before a broader rollout to other large metros starting next year. The retailer had already dipped its toe in the water of on-demand, local delivery. It has tested same-day delivery in 2014, and later in partnership with Instacart. And this May it announced its plans for Target Restock, a next-day delivery service focused on “everyday essentials,” like household items, personal care products and other dry goods – similar to those you can order through Amazon Prime Pantry. The Restock service had been in testing with staff at Target’s headquarters before expanding to a consumer-facing pilot … [Read more...] about Target acquires transportation company Grand Junction to expand same-day delivery services
