It is only on rare occasions that you get the benefit of experiencing yourself the message you are delivering as a speaker at a conference. The Gartner ITXPO Symposium where I delivered the session on Technology Innovation driving Business Differentiation was one such occasion. Even though I had submitted an abstract about my session several weeks back, the actual content of my presentation continued to grow and take shape even after the conference keynotes had been delivered. For you see, Collaboration — as Gartner asserts — drives the best form of innovation.

What is an SOE?
Modern IT departments face huge changes in the way they deploy and maintain servers. When I first entered the industry, UNIX, and hence Linux servers were in the parlance of cloud workloads, ‘pets’: few in number, lovingly tended machines that were individually configured and maintained by hand. They often ran many workloads at the same time (mail server, file server, database, shell accounts) on expensive hardware. A typical ratio of system administrators to servers might be 1:10 yet hardware costs, rather than labour, accounted for the greatest share of the IT department’s budget.
The following is not an unfamiliar story and it’s something that the Architects in Emerging Technology Practices of Red Hat Consulting see on a regular basis. Technology choice which is based on ease of use, availability or specific functionality is not always the best approach within a large enterprise.
