Sara Gates: What makes Wisegate different from other social networks
Wisegate is different for a few reasons. First, if you sell anything to our members, you are not allowed to join. There is no selling on Wisegate.

Asa Holmstrom: Databases and the future of real-time, next-generation transactional applications
With new database solutions available today, new opportunities open up for real-time transactional applications. Now, extreme performance can be provided with an order of magnitude less hardware, lowering the costs for both real-time transactional application development and, most of all, the hardware park to maintain it all. The database market is getting extremely crowded, with the traditional relational database vendors and the NoSQL challengers, as well. Under the NoSQL label, we find several different kinds of players, however many of them provide the exact same message – “fastest database”. Continue Reading»
Lisa Hammond: Advice for CIOs on implementing a strategy that unifies multiple platforms and technologies

End-users are empowered to a greater extent than ever thanks to the consumerization of IT. It used to be that IT departments drove the type and timing of end-user technology resources. However, as technology changed people’s everyday lives outside of the office - where we’re now used to getting the products and services we want instantly, and often self-provision them online - workers have come to expect the same level of responsiveness while at the office.
