Mark Hurd lays out Oracle's cloud progress, plan to be number one

Being second isn't good enough for Oracle when it comes to cloud revenue, co-president Mark Hurd told investment analysts this week following the company's fourth-quarter and year-end earnings report. As part of its earnings announcement, Oracle trumpeted that at an annual cloud subscription revenue run rate of nearly US$2 billion, it is now the industry's second-largest cloud vendor behind Salesforce.com.

Microsoft turns cloud storage into Office 365 feature

Microsoft's decision to boost free storage space to one terabyte for Office 365 subscribers is less a game changer for the rent-not-own concept than additional evidence that storage is transforming from a separate service to a feature, analysts argued today.

"Storage is a feature," said Wes Miller of Directions on Microsoft. "It's fast becoming a feature of the platform."

Google reacts to Office 365 momentum with beefier Apps suite

Under pressure from Microsoft's Office 365, Google has launched a premium edition of Apps with unlimited cloud storage and extra IT controls, and it has improved the Docs office productivity suite.

Although this new edition is essentially Apps for Business with an extra set of features, Google has branded it differently, shifting the spotlight from "apps" to storage by calling it Drive for Work.

US: Mobile app usage hits 51% of all time spent on digital media

Here's a stat that will make most people nod in agreement: time spent on mobile apps is at an all-time high and just keeps growing. But, breaking down the data piece-by-piece does carry some surprising facts -- such as people use Internet radio, social media, and photos far more on their mobile devices than on their PCs.

Google spells out ambitious plan: Android world domination

The message to developers at Google's I/O fest this year was crystal clear: Android software will power everything from phones and cars to TVs and beyond. Android was the star of the show at Google's developer fest on Wednesday, with executives pitching the mobile operating software as the driving force behind everything from connected TVs and cars to new wearable devices.

China sets out to become global leader in chip manufacturing

China is propping up its local chip manufacturing industry with new policies and financial support intended to turn the country into a semiconductor-making powerhouse by 2030.

In policy guidelines published Tuesday, the Chinese government laid out a blueprint to develop the domestic integrated circuit industry.

The country not only wants to sharpen its competitive edge, but also wean itself from foreign chip makers, China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said in a separate posting.

Dell aims Cloudera-powered appliance at enterprise Hadoop users

Dell today became the latest hardware vendor to tailor a solution specifically for Hadoop, the big data analysis framework that's practically become its own software ecosystem. Dell's appliance is being pitched as an in-memory acceleration solution that runs Cloudera's Hadoop distribution.

Google, Microsoft clouds now cover MongoDB

Following its success with Amazon Web Services, MongoDB's namesake database can now run on cloud services from Microsoft and Google.

"Amazon continues to be the dominant place to run applications in the cloud, but there is a lot of interest, especially from Microsoft shops, in running MongoDB on Azure. And there is significant interest from developers in what Google has to offer," said Matt Asay, MongoDB vice president of marketing and corporate strategy.

Microsoft cuts OneDrive prices, increases capacity

Microsoft will dramatically increase capacity and lower prices for OneDrive, increasing pressure on other cloud storage providers and also sweetening the deal for prospective and current Office 365 customers.

The company will more than double to 15GB the storage capacity in the free, stand-alone OneDrive service for consumers. People get access to this free OneDrive storage also when they sign up for Office Online, the free, lightweight Web-based version of Office, and also when they sign up for Outlook.com, Microsoft's free webmail service.

Hadoop analysis now tackling IoT to improve transit

For the Internet of Things, collecting data is only half the battle, and public transit agencies know that as well as anyone.

Operators of bus, train, and trolley systems collect a wide range of data from ticket machines, fare validation devices, GPSes (Global Positioning Systems), and other sources, but typically that data stays in silos, according to Wade Rosado, director of analytics for Urban Insights, a consultancy launched on Monday to help make use of transit data.
