Microsoft SharePoint's open source clone, MindTouch, is integrating its platform with Fujitsu's ScanSnap family of scanners to help clients upload, store and share business documents on the web. The companies say that through this partnership, they have removed one of the biggest adoption barriers to scanning. The scanned images can be accessed by different team members in an enterprise who will be able to edit the piece within a MindTouch page irrespective of physical location. Complete IT governance and security is maintained during the process which eliminates cumbersome procedures like sending faxes or making physical copies.

MindTouch has been carving a niche for itself in enterprise collaboration market that is a necessity in today's business environment comprising of geographically dispersed teams and complex outsourced structures requiring cross platform interoperability. The company launched its product into collaboration cloud last year and has been trying to differentiate itself from similar Google and Microsoft services by presenting itself as more of a business platform provider than a technology one. It says its collaboration platform is much more than just traditional document and spreadsheet sharing and helps connect deeper business-critical data that even non-technical business users can deploy to quickly automate reports or build applications.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the massive amount of information associated with these devices. Ed presented sought out sessions at CloudEXPO Silicon Valley 2017 and CloudEXPO New York 2017. He is a regular contributor to Cloud Computing Journal.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
They say multi-cloud is coming, but organizations are leveraging multiple clouds already. According to a study by 451 Research, only 21% of organizations were using a single cloud. If you've found yourself unprepared for the barrage of cloud services introduced in your organization, you will need to change your approach to engaging with the business and engaging with vendors. Look at technologies that are on the way and work with the internal players involved to have a plan in place when the inevitable happens and the business begins to look at how these things can help affect your bottom line.
