I was excluded from the London Technology Network (LNTN) because one could not possibly be interested in all the different kinds of events that I had registered for… Now the LNTN has become victim of ‘austerity cuts’ – that are, of course, perfectly unnecessary, unless one follows one’s paymaster… But that’s another of my areas of research.
In my ‘naive’, i.e. as yet uninformed ideas about data centres, I wanted to see whether they might be interested in offering my web services to their clients who store their ‘big data’ with them.
Funnily enough, I spoke to somebody from the company who stores data for CERN! One day, they will use my software and all my troubles with my former employer will be forgiven!…
When I arrived, Andy Lawrence from 451 Research was giving a wonderful overview and I felt ‘at home’. For he anticipates Software As A Service to be provided by data centres! And when he said that data centre managers cannot tell from their analysis “what depends on what”, it was clear that I had to talk to him.
My way of layering complex data (aka high-dimensional or multi-dimensional) into vertical slices would show them. But how do I get to them?
Hm, one company suggested is Hortonworks which sounds eminently interesting. Another one OSIsoft who illustrate a great industry overview. And that’s what demonstrates the gap that I need to bridge: between a usable product in an industry and the abstraction of general and universal software designs…
Well, I was given a ‘template phrase’ to complete for product formulation. Watch this space!
