When Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) arrived in the IT industry (mainly storage network) several years ago, many experts expected companies to adopt it into their business. However, it didn't happen due to several factors including limited cost advantages and organizational disruption. But now, experts are starting to see the adoption taking place which leads to the question: Is it time to consider FCoE for your organization?

What does your company consider when looking at cloud costs?

As more companies continue to look at adopting the cloud, one of the biggest benefits is the potential for it to become a cost-saving technology. The SearchCIO team recently had the chance to talk to Forrester Research Vice President James Staten on different factors CIOs need to consider when looking at cloud costs including: Agility, existing legacy systems and current staffs. Do you agree with these factors? What does your company consider when looking at cloud costs? Michael Tidmarsh Profile: Michael Tidmarsh

    I think some of the other aspects that companies usually look for also include 'security' as an important factor. 

    In general, Banking and Finance institutions pay special attention to "security" when it comes to deciding about cloud I believe.

Cognos Implementation SAP Source Oracle DB Access Reporting

Hi All, I have been tasked to write functional requirements for a Cognos implementation. Forgive me for asking some noobish questions, but some of this is new to me. The current source is composed of SAP tables, which the users have brought into Access dbs, (however currently the SAP tables are fed into oracle as well) which contain macros which are composed of multiple queries which consist of the multiple SAP tables with several joins to each other, and create a product which in the next query is then joined to another table, and continuously layered as such, finally producing a final output. This is all produced by a form which contains the macro in a button. My question is what would be the best way make this process run and produce an output in cognos? Where will all these queries and processes be stored and how? ETL? stored procedures in oracle? In Framework Manager (can it even populate tables with the product from joined tables automatically)? Any help is greatly appreciated. The more technical the answer the better. If the answer is impressive i may consider retaining you as a consultant. Thanks. Cheer, Jack Profile: janoblong

Self sufficient SharePoint

To make SharePoint solutions really useful, we have to resort to lot of third party innovations in almost all areas. Like for workflow, we depend on Nintex or K2, for migration we depend on MetaLogic, for large file storage we depend on third party tool like StoragePoint. Without third party, SP doesn't provide the most optimal solutions. Customers are hesitant to adopt SP due to this reason as it incurs additional cost and effort. SharePoint most often appears like an integrator. Is this how it is intended to be used? Will it mature into a self sufficient product? Profile: Vijayalakshmit
