We are grateful that our friends from March Capital Partners are having Zoom conversations with some remarkable people in these difficult times, Dr. Deepak Chopra and John Chambers.

Dr. Deepak Chopra shares how our safety, health, and wellness should remain a top priority as we go through this stressful time. He guides us to better understand the biology of emotional turbulence and stress, and what you can do to minimize inflammation, enhance immunity and stay centered. He also discusses how times of crisis require creative thinking and will lead to new paradigms of leadership.

The COVID-19 pandemic has tremendously accelerated existing trends.

For the past few years, we have been observing the rapid growth of a mobile distributed workforce. Employers need to enable productivity and collaboration for their employees just as they have in the office. Additionally, employers need to provide their workforce with the same quality and security to access and work on company resources/projects. All of this requires a seamless and consistent mobility oriented work experience both in the office and outside the office whether in-transit or at home.

In addition, given the present COVID situation…

In the previous parts of this article series, I had mentioned that

we are the advent of a new era of glorious distributed computing of many kinds, and therefore infrastructure has to be reimagined to meet the evolving needs and challenges.

To close out the series, let us summarize the ways that infrastructure itself and applications are being decentralized, thereby driving needs to evolve infrastructure (compute, network, storage, security, and orchestration) to meet the resulting challenges.

In the first post of this series, I mentioned that

we are at the advent of a new era of glorious distributed computing of many kinds, and therefore infrastructure has to be reimagined to meet the evolving needs and challenges.

In this article, we will explore how de-centralization via distributing trust across participants using blockchain technology in business transactions is driving some new infrastructure and business model innovations.

The term blockchain burst into prominence when the anonymous creator of Bitcoin cryptocurrency described the underlying distributed ledger which is essentially a public chain of…

Picture this. A hacker uses a VPN to breach into a cloud server (virtual machine hosted within a tier-1 public cloud provider) of a large financial enterprise, through a misconfigured firewall, then executes a small set of commands (injection attack), which gets her the credentials. …

We are thrilled about the announcement from Splunk. In the press release, Splunk announces their venture arm, namely Splunk Ventures, a $100 million Innovation Fund and a $50 million Social Impact Fund, to invest in promising and innovative start-ups that “can harness the power of data to change the world”. Innovation Fund’s first investment is in Kavach, and we are super excited about that.

Splunk has always been all about data — as is also highlighted by their “datatoeverything” moniker / hashtag all over the media, today. Kavach, on the other hand, helps organizations…

In the first post of this series, I mentioned that

we are at the advent of a new era of glorious distributed computing of many kinds, and therefore infrastructure has to be reimagined to meet the evolving needs and challenges.

In this article, we will explore how computing infrastructure has become over-centralized with SaaS and IaaS cloud services, and a new need and opportunity is emerging to broadly distribute computing to solve some needs and cater to new opportunities.

In the early days of computing, except for a few government institutions, no enterprise…

In the previous post, I mentioned that we are the advent of a new era of glorious distributed computing of many kinds, and therefore, infrastructure has to be reimagined to meet the evolving needs and challenges.

In this article, we will explore how de-centralization via micro-services and external services is impacting application development and deployment.
