I’ll be participating in writing a new book on the enterprise development
with HTML5. At this point we have created only the first cut of mind map that
includes a TOC with very brief description of the chapters.
This is a work in progress and every bit of it may change. But the main idea
is that we’re going to build a sample Web site Save a Child and will
describe and comment on this process Everything is a work in progress and
subject to change. So far we haven’t submitted an official proposal to any
book publisher yet, but we will. Below is the text as it was exported by
MindMeister. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Yesterday, I nearly drowned in a sea of extraneous data. In just one hour
during an important conference call, my laptop overflowed with 300 e-mails
from an email thread I frankly didn’t care about. Imagine how much time I
could have saved if my system knew I was unavailable, and sent me only the
two notifications I truly needed: That the customer I was on the call with
owed us an invoice, and that my next appointment was delayed by half an hour.
Clearly, enterprise users need an easy and intuitive way to parse all their
data into a useful context. Just as clearly, they also need to have the right
information delivered to them at the right time, on the right device. These
days, that device is likely to be mobile — be it laptop, smartphone or
tablet — as sales of desktop computers erode and enterprises increasingly
accommodate tablets in the workplace.

Data is the new currency of business and we are in the era of data-intensive
computing. Much has been written on Big Data throughout 2012 and customers
around the world are struggling to figure out its significance to their
businesses. Someone said there are 3 I’s to Big Data
Immediate (I must do something right away) Intimidating (what will happen if
I don’t take advantage of Big Data) Ill-defined (the term is so broad that
I’m not clear what it means).
In this blog post, I would like to pose five key questions that customers
must find answers to with regards to Big Data. So here goes.
1. Do I understand my data and do I have a data strategy?
There are varieties of data – customer transaction data, operational data,
documents/emails and other unstructured data, clickstream data, sensor data,
audio streams, video streams, etc. Do I have a clear understanding the 3V’s ... (more)
"We did not enter the search business. [Google] entered the phone business.
Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won't let them...I want to
go back to that other question first and say one more thing. This don't be
evil mantra - It's bullshit." - Steve Jobs at an employee Town Hall the other
day according to Wired, MacRummors et al although he may have said "load of
crap" not "bullshit"; sources vary.
Jobs reportedly means to use "aggressive updates" to stay way out front of
the Android phone.
Stevie also reportedly called Adobe "lazy." That it could do interesting
things but just refuses to and that Apple doesn't support Flash because it's
buggy and the chief cause of Mac crashes. Anyway, Flash is going to be
superseded by HTML5 for web video and animation, he's quoted as saying.
Apple Will Never Allow Flash Player

SAP has become a big advocate of HTML5 for enterprise mobility. Many of
their recently announced partnerships with mobile vendors include strong
endorsements of HTML5. I also see HTML5 playing a very important role for
mobile applications developed in house. It is very hard to justify creating
native applications for all platforms when you are only distributing the
mobile apps internally. The economies of scale that mobility vendors can
receive, are often not possible when developing for internal customers.
Information visualization firm Periscopic has worked on a number of HTML5
sites developed for the iPad. They found that switching from Flash to HTML5
was not as bad as they feared. Read original content Sencha reviewed

Apple and Samsung, the two leaders in mobile devices now suing each other in
nine countries over Android, have agreed to sit down and try to settle a
couple of US patent suits ahead of a trial due to start in late July.
It's not their idea. It's the idea of federal court judge Lucy Koh, who drew
the two Apple v Samsung patent infringement lawsuits, according to the FOSS
Patents blog, which has been diligently following all the litigation.
To at least look cooperative, the companies agreed to send their respective
CEOs Tim Cook and Gee-Sung Choi along with their chief counsels to the San
Francisco courthouse sometime in the next 90 days for settlement talks
mediated by Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero.
FOSS Patents makes the observation that Oracle and Google obliged the court
twice with such sit-downs but they're now trying to prove their points to a
Judge Koh m... (more)
SAP Press has just published a new book titled Mobilizing Your Enterprise
with SAP that I recommend reading. It is the best I have read. I had the
honor of being asked to write the Forward for this book along with Sanjay
Poonen, SAP President and Corporate Offier, Technology and Innovation
Here is an excerpt:
Enterprise mobility is transformational. It is not just about a particular
mobile device, screen size, operating system or online application store. It
is a new way of conducting business that demands our attention. Companies
will succeed or fail based in large part on their ability to respond to this
Within the pages of this book are detailed many of the most important
enterprise mobility trends and technical requirements that are shaping our IT
landscapes today. Nearly all of us easily recognize and appreciate the value
and utility of th... (more)
