In I Pity The Fool, Niel Robertson critiques the recent Oracle event "Half Way to Fusion" by comparing it to the A-Team. It's harsh, but funny. Describing the TV show, Neil says:
Here's the basic plotline:
The A-Team stumbles across someone in distress. They take them under their wing only to find themselves in a pickle for doing so. To get out of this pickle they end up building some vehicular monstrosity out of spare parts, broken appliances, and slightly chewed bubble gum. Relying only on their ingenuity and chutzpah, then end up prevailing against all odds.
Does this by any chance sound strikingly familiar to Oracle's game plan of late?
RedMonk has a new analyst, Cote Bushwald. His latest blog posting is The Exciting World of Middleware!, which tries to figure out industry terminology:
One meaning of the phrase "enterprise software" is "confusing as hell!". To that end, I thought I'd look up how a few companies pitch their middleware offerings. Here we go!
So have fun.
