IBM Strengthens Effort to Support Open Source Spark for Machine Learning

Spark 300x251 IBM Strengthens Effort to Support Open Source Spark for Machine LearningIBM is providing substantial resources to the Apache Software Foundation’s Spark project to prepare the platform for machine learning tasks, like pattern recognition and classification of objects. The company plans to offer Bluemix Spark as a service and has dedicated 3,500 researchers and developers to assist in its preservation and further development.

In 2009, AMPLab of the University of Berkeley developed the Spark framework that went open source a year later as an Apache project. This framework, which runs on a server cluster, can process data up to 100 times faster than Hadoop MapReduce. Given that the data and analyzes are embedded in the corporate structure and society – from applications to the Internet of Things (IoT) – Spark provides essential advancements in large-scale data processing.

First, it significantly improves the performance of applications dependent data. Then it radically simplifies the development process of intelligence, which are supplied by the data. Specifically, in its effort to accelerate innovation on Spark ecosystem, IBM decided to include Spark in its own platforms of predictive analysis and machine learning.

IBM Watson Health Cloud will use Spark to healthcare providers and researchers as they have access to new health data of the population. At the same time, IBM will make available its SystemML machine learning technology open source. IBM is also collaborating with Databricks in changing Spark capabilities.

IBM will hire more than 3,500 researchers and developers to work on Spark-related projects in more than a dozen laboratories worldwide. The big blue company plans to open a Spark Technology Center in San Francisco for the Data Science and the developer community. IBM will also train Spark to more than one million data scientists and data engineers through partnerships with DataCamp, AMPLab, Galvanize, MetiStream, and Big Data University.

A typical large corporation will have hundreds or thousands of data sets that reside in different databases through their computer system. A data scientist can design an algorithm using to plumb the depths of any database. But is needs 90 working days of scientific data to develop the algorithm. Today, if you want to implement another system, it is a quarter of work to adjust the algorithm so that it works. Spark eliminates that time in half. The spark-based system can access and analyze any database, without development and no additional delay.

Spark has another virtue of ease of use where developers can concentrate on the design of the solution, rather than building an engine from scratch. Spark brings advances in data processing technology on a large scale because it improves the performance of data-dependent applications, radically simplifies the process of developing intelligent solutions and enables a platform capable of unifying all kinds of information on real work schemes.

Many experts consider Spark as the successor to Hadoop, but its adoption remains slow. Spark works very well for machine learning tasks that normally require running large clusters of computers. The latest version of the platform, which recently came out, extends to the machine learning algorithms to run.

Seattle vs. San Francisco: Who is tops in the cloud?

In football, city livability rankings — and now in the cloud — San Francisco and Seattle are shaping up as fierce rivals.

Who’s winning? Seattle, for now. It’s due mostly to the great work, vision and huge head-start of Amazon and Microsoft, the two top dogs in the fast-growing and increasingly vital cloud infrastructure services market. Cloud infrastructure services, also called IaaS, for Infrastructure as a Service, is that unique segment of the cloud market that enables dreamers, start-ups and established companies to roll-out innovative new applications and reach customers anytime, anywhere, from nearly any device.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) holds a commanding 29 percent share of the market. Microsoft (Azure), is second, with 10 percent. Silicon Valley’s Google remains well behind, as does San Francisco-based Salesforce (not shown in the graph below).

cloud leaders

The Emerald city shines

I spoke with Tim Porter, a managing director for Seattle-based Madrona Venture Group. Porter told me that “Seattle has clearly emerged as the cloud computing capital.  Beyond the obvious influence of AWS and strong No. 2, (Microsoft) Azure, Seattle has also been the destination of choice for other large players to set up their cloud engineering offices.  We’ve seen this from companies like Oracle, Hewlett-Packard, Apple and others.”

Seattle is also home to industry leaders ConcurChef, and Socrata, all of whom can only exist thanks to the cloud, and to 2nd Watch, which exists to help businesses successfully transition to the cloud. Google and Dropbox have also set up operations in the Emerald City to take advantage of the region’s cloud expertise. Not surprisingly, the New York Times said “Seattle has quickly become the center of the most intensive engineering in cloud computing.”

Seattle has another weapon at its disposal, one too quickly dismissed in the Bay Area: stability. Washington has tougher non-compete clauses than California, preventing some budding entrepreneurs from leaving the mother ship to start their own company. The consequence of such laws can lead to larger, more stable businesses, with the same employees interfacing with customers over many years. In the cloud, dependability is key to customers, many of whom are still hesitant to move all their operations off-premise.

Job hopping is also less of an issue. Jeff Ferry, who monitors enterprise cloud companies for the Daily Cloud, told me that while “Silicon Valley is great at taking a single idea and turning it into a really successful company, Seattle is better for building really big companies.”

The reason for this, he said, is that there are simply more jobs for skilled programmers and computing professionals in the Bay Area, making it easier to hop from job to job, place to place. This go-go environment may help grow Silicon Valley’s tech ecosystem, but it’s not necessarily the best environment for those hoping to create a scalable, sustainable cloud business. As Ferry says, “running a cloud involves a lot of painstaking detail.” This requires expertise, experience, and stability.

San Francisco (and Silicon Valley)

The battle is far from over. The San Francisco Bay Area has a sizable cloud presence, and it’s growing. Cisco and HP are tops in public and private cloud infrastructure. Rising star Box, which provides cloud-based storage and collaboration tools, started in the Seattle area but now has its corporate office in Silicon Valley. E-commerce giant Alibaba, which just so happens to operate the largest public cloud services company in China, recently announced that its first cloud computing center would be set up in Silicon Valley.

That’s just for starters.

I spoke with Byron Deeter, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners (BVP), which tracks the cloud industry. He told me that five largest “pure play” cloud companies by market cap are all in the Bay Area: Salesforce, LinkedIn, Workday, ServiceNow and NetSuite.

The Bay Area also has money. Lots of money. According to the National Venture Capital Association, nearly $ 50 billion in venture capital was invested last year. A whopping 57 percent went to California firms, with San Francisco, San Jose and Oakland garnering a rather astounding $ 24 billion. The Seattle area received only $ 1.2 billion.

venture capital by region

The Bay Area’s confluence of talent, rules and money will no doubt continue to foster a virtuous and self-sustaining ecosystem, one that encourages well-compensated employees to leave the nest, start their own business, and launch the next evolution in cloud innovation. If Seattle has big and focused, San Francisco has many and iterative.

The cloudy forecast

Admittedly, this isn’t sports. There’s no clock to run out and not everyone keeps score exactly the same. Just try to pin down Microsoft’s Azure revenues, for example. It’s also worth noting that the two regions do not compete on an even playing field. Washington has no personal or corporate income tax, and that is no doubt appealing to many — along with the mercifully lower price of real estate, both home and office.

The cloud powers healthcare, finance, retail, entertainment, our digital lives. It is increasingly vital to our always-on, from anywhere-economy, and a key driver of technical and business model innovation. If software is eating the world, the cloud is where it all goes to get digested. Here’s hoping both cities keep winning.

ZeroStack hatches plans for no-hassle, cloud-managed OpenStack

If there’s one part of the OpenStack market that never stops yielding enterprising newcomers, it’s the market for solutions to simplify OpenStack implementations. Not only could OpenStack still use help there, but such an approach nearly guarantees a revenue stream.

Newest to this table is ZeroStack, a freshly decloaked startup from VMware and AMD alumni, with a novel approach to OpenStack management for smaller and midtier outfits.

Your OpenStack is their business

ZeroStack’s idea is a mixture of an on-premises 2U appliance and a cloud-based SaaS portal. The appliance, a mixture of infrastructure and controller, is installed in the customer’s data center, and administration is done through ZeroStack’s cloud portal. Changes to the software are pushed out automatically to appliances from the cloud, and ZeroStack claims it can bring an existing OpenStack installation up to the latest revision of the product within two months of release.

Salesforce Expands Data Analytics to Next Generation Business Apps

Wave Sales Overview1 225x300 Salesforce Expands Data Analytics to Next Generation Business AppsIn many popular consumer applications a user can take immediate action if he has obtained important information from large amounts of data. For business applications, it appears that, directly taking action in response to a data analysis not so easy. This often occurs because the analysis may be not coming from relevant data sources or because it directly not linked to the tasks. The result is sluggish business decisions at the expense of the operating results.

Salesforce.com has set the goal of providing businesses with a more user-friendly analysis tools for the reason mentioned above. Last week, the leader of the CRM service provider has unveiled a series of apps tailored to specific activities or roles. Among them is the introduction of Sales Wave Analytics, a tool for business, which will be the first to be delivered.

Earlier this year, Salesforce.com had already made a series of updates for its mobile platform Wave Analytics Cloud, and last month the company had added a new tool focused on big data. This time, the latest round of Wave Analytics Apps applications is intended to extend the cloud analytics capabilities by providing the prepackaged templates that can meet specific needs according to use, with the ability to provide a meaning data appropriate to the context.

The applications instantly integrate CRM data in appropriate role models to accelerate deployment. They will also highlight the historical trends and making full year comparative from any terminal. Because Wave Analytics Apps applications are built natively on Salesforce1 platform, predefined data flows will not only postpone automatically, but also to update all parameters associated with these changes in Salesforce.

Sales Analytics Wave is the first app in the series delivered by the firm. It will allow business to benefit from new forecasting management tools, sales pipeline, performance and more. Preconfigured templates included in the application will allow users to explore all Salesforce sales data. It will cover sales pipeline management and forecasting so that they can give access to quarterly results and will allow to follow team performance.

The top management of the business operations may, for example, use this tool to have a real-time analysis of sales pipeline and cross this information with the sales performance of products directly from the mobile phone to determine if these forecasts should be revised or not.

The Sales Wave Historical Analysis function allows sales managers themselves to create the database in no time from any device with an analysis of historical data. As a result they no longer have to wait for the results of business analysts.

The Wave platform is vertically integrated with Salesforce’s cloud analysis platform. In addition, the data does not need to be sorted for analysis, because the Wave platform includes a schema-free architecture. This allows all employees to intuitively explore full datasets and display the results in dashboards and graphs.

The tool will be available on iOS for iPhone, iPad and even Apple Watch. Additional languages ??and other compatible devices will be added to the list later.

Oracle Triggers an Avalanche of 24 Cloud Services to Compete with Amazon

oraclecloud 300x168 Oracle Triggers an Avalanche of 24 Cloud Services to Compete with AmazonThe Cloud represents a market where Oracle wants to win. The 24 services launched by the database leader include all the tools companies need to conduct their operations in the cloud and thus should help customers make the move to the cloud.

Oracle Cloud Platform was enriched by nearly 24 new services for developers, IT professionals, end users and analysts to achieve, to expand and more easily integrate cloud applications. They are Oracle Database Cloud – Exadata Service, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud Service, Oracle Big Data Cloud Service and Big Data SQL Cloud Service, Oracle Integration Cloud Service, Oracle Mobile Cloud Service and Oracle Process Cloud Service.

With the new services launched, companies can move all their applications hosted in the data center to the cloud Oracle. Oracle now claims to be the only cloud provider to offer a full range of enterprise software services, platform services and infrastructure services under the banner Oracle Cloud Platform. Compared to Oracle, cloud providers have chosen to focus on certain services: Salesforce.com has specialized in software and services Amazon has essentially focused its activity on infrastructure services.

The provider has also launched several integrated cloud services that must allow companies to move their operations to the cloud, including a service to develop and execute mobile applications directly from the Oracle cloud and an integration service which allows them to combine multiple enterprise applications into complete systems.

Oracle now offers online services for enterprise resource planning, managing the customer experience, management of human resources, management of business performance, and management services supply chain. The aim of these new offerings is to make Oracle a single window for all the cloud computing needs.

Oracle Databases deployed in the cloud as part of this service is 100% compatible with those deployed on-premises, thereby enabling a smooth migration to the cloud and seamless transition to a hybrid cloud strategy. The Oracle Big Data Service Cloud and Big Data SQL Cloud Service is a secure and efficient platform to run various loads on Hadoop and NoSQL databases and to help companies collect and organize their big data.

Oracle Mobile Cloud Service offers a set of Android applications development tools or iOS operating entirely in the cloud. The developer can use Mobile Cloud to build a user interface or to configure an API for data exchange. All development will be done entirely through a browser, so it is not necessary to install software on the desktop machine to each developer.

Developers can use their favorite languages ??or go through the Mobile Application Framework Oracle framework. The service also includes a software development kit (SDK) that allows developers to follow their application, for example to know who uses it and how it is used.

The company also launched a service called Oracle Integration Cloud Service, which allows companies to work together their different enterprise applications and cloud services. Finally, Oracle has updated Business Intelligence Cloud Service, in particular by equipping it with new data visualization tools.

Oracle wants to clearly position themselves to Amazon, its main competitor, which also offers various solutions in the cloud. To attract customers, the company also said that the group is ready to compete with Amazon on price. Oracle claims 70 million users in the cloud. The services offered by Oracle are from 19 data centers spread across the planet, which manage 700 PB of data.

Intel to pilot cloud technology for sharing personalized cancer treatment

At 19, Eric Dishman began a fight with kidney cancer, and for 23 years he endured what he described as Russian roulette chemotherapy.

It wasn’t until he had his DNA sequenced that doctors were able to administer a personalized treatment that placed Dishman’s cancer into remission.

The problem is, even after his genome was uncovered, it took physicians seven months to come up with a treatment — a period of time when Dishman said he was on “death’s door.”

Intel and the Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) this week launched a pilot network that will allow healthcare facilities to securely share genomic data for tailoring cancer research and personalized medicine, thereby cutting the time to find answers from weeks and months to possibly days or hours.

This could change. OpenStack might, as Randy Bias urged the OpenStack faithful in his annual State of the Stack address, start streamlining development because “OpenStack is at risk of collapsing under its own weight.”

But if you’re a hyperfocused company like Red Hat, sinking even more resources in OpenStack development might not be the smart bet.

Is the cloud the right spot for your big data?

Is the cloud a good spot for big data?

That’s a controversial question, and the answer changes depending on who you ask.

Last week I attended the HP Big Data Conference in Boston and both an HP customer and an executive told me that big data isn’t a good fit for the public cloud.

I’ve heard many cloud vendors tell me the opposite.

+MORE AT NETWORK WORLD: Why big data will be a big deal for the new HP +

CB Bohn is a senior database engineer at Etsy, and a user of HP’s Vertica database. The online marketplace uses the public cloud for some workloads, but its primary functions are run out of a co-location center, Bohn said. It doesn’t make sense for the company to lift and shift its Postgres, Vertica SQL and Hadoop workloads into the public cloud, he said. It would be a massive undertaking for the company to port all the data associated with those programs into the cloud. Then, once its transferred to the cloud, the company would have to pay ongoing costs to store it there. Meanwhile, the company has a co-lo facility already set up and expertise in house to manage the infrastructure required to run those programs. The cloud just isn’t a good fit for Etsy’s big data, Bohn says.

Major IT Players Form R Consortium to Strengthen Data Analysis

r consortium 300x199 Major IT Players Form R Consortium to Strengthen Data AnalysisThe Linux Foundation announced the formation of R Consortium, with the intention of strengthening technical and user communities around the R language, the open source programming language for statistical data analysis.

The new organization R Consortium became an official project of Linux Foundation and is designed to strengthen R language users.  It is expected that R Consortium will complement the existing fund, and will focus on expanding the user base of R, as well as focus on improving the interaction of users and developers.

The Representatives of the R Foundation and industry representatives are behind the new consortium. Microsoft and RStudio have joined the consortium as platinum members. TIBCO Software is a gold member and Alteryx, Google, HP, Mango Solutions, Ketchum Trading and Oracle have joined as silver members.

R Consortium will complement the work of R Foundation, establishing communication with user groups and engaging in supporting projects – related to the creation and maintenance of R mirror sites, testing, resources for quality control, the financial support and promotion of the language. Also, the consortium will assist in creating support packages for R and organizing other related software projects.

R is a programming language and development environment for scientific calculations and graphics that originated at the University of Auckland (New Zealand). The R language has enjoyed significant growth and now supports more than two million users. A wide grass industries adopted the R language, including biotech, finance, research and high-tech industries. The R language is integrated with frequency analysis, visualization, and reporting applications.

Having acquired the company Revolution Analytics (which makes strong use of language), Microsoft announced that it is joining the consortium together with other founding members such as Google, Oracle, HP, Tibcom, Rstudio, Alteryx to finance the new consortium.

Microsoft’s official said that “the R Consortium will complement the work of the R Foundation, a nonprofit organization that maintains the language, and will focus on user outreach and other projects designed to assist the R user and developer communities. This includes both technical and infrastructure projects such as building and maintaining mirrors for downloading R, testing, QA resources, financial support for the annual useR! Conference and promotion and support of worldwide user groups.”

Google also says they have thousands of users and their own developers using R, so this language is crucial for many of their products. Google is happy to join the rest of companies to continue to maintain the infrastructure of the open source R.

Microsoft’s support of real-time analytics for Apache Hadoop in Azure HDInsight and machine learning in Azure Marketplace use R language to service anomaly detection for preventive maintenance or detection of fraud.

Business booms for African sites dedicated to used goods

The online market for used items in expanding rapidly in Africa, as new sites pop up in countries around the continent and sales for the online marketplaces take off.

Lithuania-based Mobofree, the social marketplace that offers people in Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda and Zimbabwe an online venue to buy, sell and swap used products, just last week disclosed that the value of goods exchanged on its platform rose by 274 percent in the last year, to US$ 1.97 billion—30 percent above the 2015 forecast.

“Second-hand goods is a huge category everywhere around the world. In fact even if online marketplaces and e-commerce shops have grown dramatically in developed countries, second hands goods transactions are growing as marketplaces allow much easier way to find, value and perform transactions,” said Cristobal Alonso, Mobofree’s CEO and co-founder, via email. “I see the same happening in Nigeria and Africa; we will see huge growth in both new items and second hand goods through online platforms for years to come, and even with higher growth rates.”
