IDG Contributor Network: Apple stores to sell Apollo “personal cloud.” It’s back to the future all over again

News today from a justifiably proud Promise technology that Apple (yes, THAT Apple) is going to be selling Promise’s Apollo “personal cloud appliance” at its stores globally. Any time Apple does anything it’s a big deal so it is worth having a bit of background about Promise.

The company is a 25-year veteran of the storage industry. Traditionally active in the enterprise arena, it produces its own enterprise storage hardware and vertical offerings tailored to the video, rich media and other industries.

IDG Contributor Network: Apixio scoops up cash to drive uptake of healthcare cognitive computing

For anyone who isn’t aware, and there must be at least one or two of you out there, healthcare IT has a tendency to look the way IT generally did about 30 years ago. There’s lots of reasons for that — a desire to invest in patient services rather than infrastructure, concerns about security and privacy, and a general conservatism in the space.

IDG Contributor Network: Tidemark goes verticals, machine learning and benchmarking

Tidemark delivers enterprise performance management (EPM) software. What that esoteric acronym means is that Tidemark helps organizations take internal data they already have and use it to plan the future steps they will take, but also to assess the historical performance of their organization. Tidemark was founded only a few short years ago (in 2009, to be precise) but has already raised close to $ 120 million from a host of investors over multiple rounds. Tidemark is a good example of a new breed of cloud vendor, those that were born into a world already comfortable with cloud-based enterprise tools such as Salesforce and NetSuite. Because of this fact, Tidemark hasn’t had to invent a category; rather it has the somewhat easier job of delivering an existing product category but in new and beneficial ways.
