25 Nov 2013 Update Your Job Search [33880]
Harvard Business Review, November 25th, 2012

"Month by month, the job market keeps easing upward. Although we haven't fully made up the number of jobs that were lost in this recession, almost every industry has grown jobs since the economy hit rock bottom in February 2010. And there are plenty of new kinds of jobs that have been created since then, too.

Now this optimism is starting to spread. People who stayed glued to their jobs during the downturn are starting to dip their toes in the water to see if there is a new position out there for them. But while they have been hunkered down waiting for the recession to pass, the job market has been changing. If you have been at the same organization for five or more years, you are in danger of making some big mistakes that can completely derail your job search. Here's a handful of those pitfalls and how to avoid them..."

28 Oct 2013 Picking Your Successor [33505]
CIO Insight, October 15th, 2013

"For CIOs who aspire to excellence, and who may seek another corner office in the company, succession planning is one of the responsibilities that come with the job.

With apologies to Pete Townshend and The Who, the title of one of the British band's iconic rock albums seems a fitting place to start, and the question to ask, when it comes to CIO succession planning: Who's next?

Some have referred to succession planning as planning for one's eventual obsolescence. It's not a trivial issue given the importance of technology in nearly every industry today, which makes it's all the more curious that most organizations and CIOs give short shrift to succession planning for this critical position..."

28 Aug 2013 SPARC M6 processor unveiled at the Hot Chips conference [32653]
Oracle gets it right

Timothy Prickett Morgan writes, "The new SPARC M6 processor, unveiled at the Hot Chips conference at Stanford University this week, makes a bold statement about Oracle's intent to invest in very serious big iron and go after Big Blue in a big way.

Oracle's move is something that the systems market desperately needs, particularly for customers where large main memory is absolutely necessary. And - good news for Ellison & CO. - with every passing day, big memory computing is getting to be more and more important, just like in the glory days of the RISC/Unix business.

It looks like it took Oracle to finally get a decent microprocessor and interconnect development team together for Sun Microsystems..."
