7 of the most important enterprise tech trends amid the coronavirus crisis that could make or break the stocks of enterprise tech giants like Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce, Dell or Intel (MSFT, CRM, GOOG, AMZN, ORCL, DELL, INTC)

Wall Street analysts say the coronavirus crash has triggered 7 key trends that could impact big tech names led by Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Oracle, Dell, IBM and Intel. The pandemic has led to a collapse in demand for gear used to set up private data centers. On the other hand, businesses are expected to embrace cloud computing at an even faster rate due to the pandemic. In an unexpected twist, the sudden rise of a remote workplace led to an uptick in demand for laptops and notebooks. Click h...

Trump has a 'small personal financial interest' in hydroxycholorquine drugmaker. Allies have bigger stakes.

President Trump has been promoting the malaria and lupus drug hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 "with all of the enthusiasm of a real estate developer," even as the medical experts on his coronavirus task force have repeatedly "warned against overselling a drug yet to be proved a safe remedy, particularly for heart patients," The New York Times reports. Some hospitals in Sweden stopped using hodroxycholoriquinine to treat the coronavirus due to adverse side effects, and the International Soci...

Want to survive the downturn? Better build a platform

When you look at the most successful companies in the world, they are almost never just one simple service. Instead, they offer a platform with a range of services and an ability to connect to it to allow external partners and developers to extend the base functionality that the company provides. Aspiring to be a platform and actually succeeding at building one are not the same. While every startup probably sees themselves as becoming a platform play eventually, the fact is it’s hard to build on...

Media companies have never had more readership, but a group of adtech companies are making it tough to monetize

A spike in coronavirus-related news coverage has drawn attention to advertisers' practice of blocking their ads from appearing around news they deem negative. The practice makes it hard for news publishers to monetize that increase in readership, further straining an industry already challenged because of the coronavirus crisis. For larger news publishers, the negative financial impact of keyword blocking could be in the millions of dollars every month, fraud researcher Augustine Fou estimated...

The coronavirus crisis is putting Amazon's cloud to the test like never before. Here's how it keeps its massive data centers running smoothly, helping apps like Netflix and Zoom stay reliable. (AMZN)

As coronavirus spreads around the world, more people are being required to stay home, and they often rely on apps that run on Amazon Web Services, like Zoom, Slack, WebEx, Netflix, and Hulu. AWS's network of data centers around the work are designed to handle peak demands, and they're routinely tested to make sure applications can stay running, even if some data centers go down. If there were to be a lockdown, AWS's data center sites would likely stay open, and it has processes in place to res...

How Amazon Thrives On Being Misunderstood

What are Amazon’s greatest innovations? Drones? Cloud computing? Echo and Alexa? These are impressive; some are even revolutionary. However, I believe Amazon’s greatest innovations are the ones that have changed the basics of competing to the point where they now sound mundane. My top list of greatest Amazon innovations includes Free Everyday Shipping, Prime Loyalty, and Item Authority. Deceptively simple, Item Authority signed up multiple sellers of the same item to increase item selection, ...

Here's what 'digital transformation' actually means, and what people get wrong about it, according to the Silicon Valley legend who literally wrote the book on it

Tom Siebel, CEO of artificial intelligence firm C3.ai says digital transformation consists of reinventing an organizaton with a blend of cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things. Siebel literally wrote the book on digital transformation, but says that there's a lot of confusion over the term. Today businesses face the stark choice of adopting these technologies or becoming extinct while their competitors evolve, Siebel says.  An early excutive at Oracle, S...

What next for oral arguments?

Having indefinitely postponed its March oral argument sitting, the Supreme Court will need to develop a plan for these cases and those in the April sitting too. There are 20 oral arguments in question: 11 for March and nine for April . Because there is little relevant precedent, there is no way to predict what the court will do. In this post, I lay out what seems most likely and sensible to me. Note that the question of how to handle oral arguments is not enormously consequential to the ...
