Customer-centric solutions demand empathy. But, how we employ this principle within design thinking is as critical—if not more—as what we do in the process. Certain slices can be easily repeated—that’s the science part. However, not everything fits neatly into a template. More than anything else, we rely on our creativity to accurately frame a problem ...continue reading The Art And Science Of Customer Empathy In Design Thinking

Digital innovation and investment are growing by leaps and bounds – and so is the data created and consumed by them. While experts acknowledge that analysis of structured and unstructured information, Internet of Things, and all forms of artificial intelligence is taking advantage of the availability of extensive data sets, it’s becoming evident that these capabilities are also adding even more information to already overwhelmed business systems.
Many companies believe that replacing traditional data warehousing tools with in-memory databases, Big Data architectures, and cloud service providers will calm the…

At the heart of every complex software system is the user interface (UI). Enabling the users to accomplish whatever task they set out to do is the goal of any piece of software. Following the trends in the UI field is of great importance.
So, what has happened to the user interface and what will happen? That could be the subject of a very long (and possibly useful) article, but here we will focus on the trend of all trends. The development that will change how we look at UI altogether – AI.
For years AI has been the stuff of science fiction novels, which has fuelled the hype in the tech industry. This has lead some to believe that AI is just another buzzword, and not an actual and disrupting technology. But the momentum of AI is very real. According to a survey by Accenture, 85% of executives will invest substantially in AI technology over the next three years. These investment plans are not just because AI is a cool technology, it’s because it really adds value making…

At MemSQL, we are out to build awesome software and we’re always trying to solve hard problems. A few days ago, I uncovered a cool Linux mystery with some colleagues and fixed it. We thought sharing that experience might benefit others.
The scene of the crime
While developing an internal tool to get stack traces, we decided to use the SYS_tgkill Linux system call to send signals to specific threads. The tgkill syscall sends a signal to a specific thread based on its “thread group” identifier (tgid) and thread identifier (tid). We store the thread identifier for every thread, so that was simple to obtain, but the “thread group” identifier was a new concept to me.
A Google search suggested that a simple way to get the tgid is to read it from the Linux pseudo-file /proc/self/status, which has some information about the process:
cat /…

A new audio version of the Database In-Memory Technical White Paper as read by yours truly has just been posted on the Oracle Database Audio White Papers channel. We join Oracle Multitenant, Best Practices for IoT Workloads and Transforming Data Management with Oracle Database 12c Release 2 as the fourth audio white paper that has been posted. If you're like me and listen to podcasts or audiobooks then this might be a good way to catch up on the new features in Database In-Memory, or learn about Oracle Database features in one of the other audio white papers.

Cloud deployment can help ISVs and our joint customers on their journey to digital transformation with lower Total-Cost-of-Ownership, simplified deployment options and accelerated time to value.
In this installment of our continuing ISV (Independent Software Vendor) series, we will build on the SAP HANA foundation laid down by Karl-Heinz Hoffman last week.  In his article, Karl described why now is the time for ISVs to adopt SAP HANA to accelerate their digital transformation. In this installment, I’ll discuss how ISVs can benefit by incorporating a Cloud strategy with SAP HANA powered digital transformation.   If you are interested in learning how you can innovate quicker, reduce both ISV and customer total-cost-of-ownership, and provide a seamless/easy customer deployment experience — then this…

You may have noticed that the format of the Database In-Memory blog changed a few weeks ago. For that matter, all Oracle blog formats changed and during this process we lost the links that used to be on the right-hand side of the blog page. It took a while, but we have managed to restore them. However, the format is a bit different and it was pointed out to me out that it might not be obvious how to get to them. If you take a look at the following image you can see that I highlighted a "Resources" button just below the "Oracle Database In-Memory" title:

Click on that button and you will be taken to a page that has all of the links that were formerly on the main page.

It seems like everyone is moving to the cloud lately, regardless of industry. Telcos are the process of doing the same – but there’s a lot of catching up to do. Historically, Telcos have built proprietary, monolithic architectures to support their customers in a “risk first, revenue second” model – by undertaking huge investments in networks, and capitalizing on the potential revenue they will generate months, if not years later. Today’s economic realities make the cloud, not only attractive, but necessary for Telcos.
First, the cloud changes the business models for Telcos – services can be designed, deployed, and tested quickly, and scaled as the market demand and revenues catch up – enabling a “revenue first, risk second” advantage.
Second, the monolithic systems of the past are crumbling – and Telcos are becoming true “Service Providers”. That means potentially providing end-to-end solutions for customers – or pieces of it.  Telcos can be Software as a Service (SaaS…

SQL Server 2017 will bring with it support for the Linux OS and containers running on Windows, Linux, and macOS. Our goal is to enable SQL Server to run in modern IT infrastructure in any public or private cloud.
With support for containers, SQL Server can now be used in many popular DevOps scenarios.  Developers working with Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines can now include SQL Server 2017 containers as a component of their applications for an integrated build, test, and deploy experience.
CI/CD automation with containers – Using containers greatly simplifies the development, testing, and deployment of applications. This is achieved by the packaging of all dependencies, including SQL Server,…
