Will datacentre economics paralyse the Internet of Things?

The way data and datacentres are managed may need to change drastically in the IoT era

The statistics predicting what the Internet of Things (IoT) will look like and when it will take shape vary widely. Whether you believe there will be 25 billion or 50 billion Internet-enabled devices by 2050, there will certainly be far more devices than there are today. Forrester has predicted 82% of companies will be using Internet of Things (IoT) applications by 2017. But unless CIOs pay close attention to the economics of the datacentre, they will struggle to be successful. The sheer volume of data we expect to manage across these IoT infrastructures could paralyse companies and their investments in technology.

Oracle 12c goes GA but is it enough to stem the rise of competitors?

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said the 12c will serve as the "foundation of a modern cloud" when it was announced last year.

But with the future of the company being bet on its ability to bring its core database solutions into the cloud and big data era, some are beginning to doubt whether Oracle can maintain its leadership in the segment.
