The expanded Adobe-Microsoft partnership significantly deepens the strategic relationship between the two companies – a relationship that kicked off at Adobe MAX two years ago. With this new agreement, Microsoft displaces Amazon Web Services (AWS) in a large account and will be able to sell a leading marketing cloud portfolio (including market-leading experience management) to its Dynamics 365 Enterprise customers. Adobe gains a key ally (and a new channel – including both direct enterprise sales and partners) for Adobe Marketing Cloud as it girds for battle with marketing cloud competitors from the CRM arena that play broadly in digital marketing, sales and support.

The Rise of Intelligent ERP (i-ERP)

By Mickey North Rizza

Monolithic, cobbled together antiquated ERP systems of record are the technology backbone of the majority of businesses today. While antiques such as jewelry, furniture and pottery may increase in value over time, systems of record have hit their demise because their design and value cannot match the digital business needs of today. The most competitive and digitally modern businesses have embraced new innovative business models unlocking the value of information. These new systems are smart; utilizing systems of record information layered with autonomic and predictive intelligence assets. IDC calls this enhanced ERP portfolio of applications "intelligent ERP," or "i-ERP," and it will run tomorrow's businesses in an increasingly digital world.

MySQL began as a company-owned open source project to deliver low cost, easy to manage RDBMS technology to the masses. Today, there is a wide variety of companies offering complementary technologies, and more than a few offering variant distributions based on MySQL. All these are celebrated at Percona Live!, the MySQL user conference sponsored by a company that offers one of those variant distributions, but also supported by its competitors, including Oracle. At this year’s conference in San Jose, California, this analyst focused on two products offering variant MySQL technologies aimed at the analytic-transaction processing (ATP) space; DeepSQL and MemSQL.

Greased Lightning: the GPU DBMS

By Carl Olofson

A new kind of database query processing technology is emerging: one based on graphics processing units (GPUs). Unlike conventional technology that limits its processing to CPUs, these new products can crunch large sets of numbers in parallel in a fraction of the time that the same queries require on regular systems. This is because GPUs, which were originally developed to perform the calculations necessary to drive real-time graphics, can concentrate terrific processing power on many problems simultaneously. GPU databases promise to be a key to handling very complex queries, where answers are needed to drive ongoing processing in an increasingly dynamic, stream-driven, smart processing environment.
