Though I'm not on the ground blogging from this year's IBM Information on Demand conference in viva Las Vegas, I'm certainly there in spirit, Flying Elvii and all.
A number of key announcements have already been made in the city of Lost Wages.
You can learn about those and much more here.
The highlights from Monday's Info on Demand include the industry's first universal database cache, new enterprise content management solutions, and enhancements to IBM's InfoSphere to help speed up master data management projects and provide tighter integration with our Cognos business intelligence tools.
Though the forecast for IBM's information management portfolio seems fair to midland, more clouds are moving in from the west, this time from Redmond in the form of Microsoft's "Azure" cloud platform announcement.
Of course, I'm all about the gadgets these days, for forecasting the weather, cloud movements and otherwise.
So I was most happy see there are some new gadgets that allow a person to view one's Google Calendar and Docs right there on the Gmail screen. That's definitely an idea whose time had already come.
Check it out on the Gmail Blog.
