Hyperion In 2007, Oracle acquired Hyperion, a leading provider of performance management software. The transaction extends Oracle's business intelligence capabilities to offer the most comprehensive system for enterprise performance management. Over the past few years, Oracle has significantly reoriented our business intelligence product strategy, shifting our focus from offering a solution that works for Oracle-only environments towards offering a best-of-breed business intelligence and performance management product family that will work with heterogeneous information sources in an enterprise, both Oracle and non-Oracle. The acquisition of Hyperion extends our business intelligence product strategy. Customers are increasingly using performance management and business intelligence together. After the acquisition, we introduced a new product family called Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Plus.

Intelliden Brownfield networks are a challenge under average circumstances and potentially a large insider threat under the worst of circumstances. Brownfield networks are legacy networks that have been in service for such a long time they resemble the proverbial ball of yarn. Years of design and redesign, combined with a common “just get it running” operational mindset, create an infrastructure where no one person understands the true (not theoretical) network state. Adding to the challenges are the ongoing flux of operational and personnel shifts that make it hard to keep track of access to critical systems and result in large security, operational and regulatory exposure. An IT employee, for example, may perform a routine change to one portion of the network and inadvertently create a security hole into another part of the network thereby making the entire network vulnerable to a black hat attack.

Tech Bubble? Moderator Owen Thomas /VentureBeat and Panelists Paul Martino/Aggregate Knowledge; Christine Herron/First Round Capital; Corey Reese/Trumpet Technologies; Tim Chang /Norwest Venture Partners. Is the tech industry headed for bubble number two? That was the burning question for those who gathered at the Automattic Lounge on Pier 38 in San Francisco last Thursday. The panel was moderated by Owen Thomas, executive editor of VentureBeat. Martino doesn’t see any signs of a bubble yet, and noted that there have been only a handful of high profile market valuations recently, yet they have received a disproportionate amount of attention from the press that in turn contributes to a perceptual disconnect with reality. ”Silicon Valley is like high school — until you die,” said Chang, noting that the “hot people” get chased by everybody, and all the attention is on the prom queen and the team captain. So how do entrepreneurs create a bidding war these days?

It's Nagios Drupal Monitoring time for us dogs, now that Acquia is mumbling in its beer. | aWebFactory I still have my brown Acquia T-shirt that was distributed at the March, 2009 Washington DC DurpalCon.
