As you know, and much like the coverage of our industry in general, I usually find press releases announcing either a new client win, or a merger and acquisition, as little more than the perfunctory dissemination of information that reveals little if anything meaningful.  In fact, the vast majority of announcements would be better placed in either […]

 In December I wrote a post titled IBM’s plans to corner or corral the cloud – it’s all a matter of governance based on my interview with IBM’s Pete Wharton.

A long time ago, in a galaxy (okay lifetime) far, far away . . . As soon as I heard the news that Oracle was expanding its reach into the hospitality business through its $5.3 billion purchase of Columbia, Maryland-based Micros, I was immediately reminded of a fellow by the name of Joe Finizio.
