Net Neutrality Posted By Simon Moss on Tue, November, 18th 2014 @ 12:15 PM
Usually this blog speaks to examples highlighting a different way of solving business problems – a way that our clients are delivering business value at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods. Below we thought it important to pause, and address something that should both trouble and connect us all.
There seems to be…Read more

A few years back a fascinating number came out of Gartner. They predicted that within the Enterprise market there would be a trillion dollar (that’s $1,000,000,000,000) backlog of IT projects by 2015 http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/1439513 In other words business projects, regulatory reports, business innovations, client service improvements, risk and compliance transparency, upgrades and maintenance and any number of other…Read more

Agility, Quality and Velocity – the three legs of effective business decision making. And three legs way over used and poorly defined. Alas they are often seen as either contradictory or at least requiring significant compromise when it comes to making critical decisions about how best to manage “Enterprise Data”. How that data…Read more

I’m sitting in a great hotel in London. Terrific atmosphere and great value for a City that is often so overpriced. Very cool place and most importantly, free WiFi. To me WiFi, just like Healthcare, is a human right and should be free. Anyway, another blog entry. But the hotel is great, and…Read more
Pneuron, distributed platform, distributed analytics, pneuron in a nutshell Posted By Simon Moss on Sun, September, 21st 2014 @ 11:28 PM
Meeting with some great people in the market at the moment as we continue our exciting movement forward. One common theme is “tell me what you do in a nutshell”. Sounds simple but it can be a real challenge. I have to admit Pneuron is focused at solving a lot of problems at the same time – in other…Read more

The big news from Big Blue is a new chip that acts like neurons within a brain: http://www.research.ibm.com/cognitive-computing/neurosynaptic-chips.shtml#fbid=kQvoWxbU4Ny
A lot of comments came our way, since its both a big validation of what we are doing and some of the terminology was interesting. So I thought we’d respond. Thanks for all the…Read more
Project Management Posted By Simon Moss on Mon, July, 28th 2014 @ 12:10 PM
The complexities of the process from requirements gathering to deployment of an effective solution reminds us of traversing a minefield, a journey fraught with hidden dangers, guesswork and reliance purely on the hope of making it to the other side. In the case of systems projects, the multitude of failure points in this journey often drives us to…Read more
Company Building Posted By Simon Moss on Mon, July, 14th 2014 @ 02:46 PM
So I had some solid feedback from my Board of Directors the other day about this blog. I am delighted to announce that there are more than just my Mother following this blog (Hi Mum!) which is encouraging news. Moreover the feedback is that its interesting, succinct, consistently to the point and …. a little dull and dry sometimes. Really? And I…Read more
Business Intelligence, Analytics, Distributed Analytics Posted By Simon Moss on Tue, July, 1st 2014 @ 08:10 PM
There is no doubt that Business Intelligence and Analytics, Predictive Models, and overall acceleration of data science has been pretty remarkable over the last decade. Tableau, TiBCO Spotfire, IBM Cognos, and SAS to name just a few, have all made tremendous strides. Jaspersoft, as well as Apache in Open…Read more
Big Data Posted By Simon Moss on Mon, June, 23rd 2014 @ 12:37 PM
The common argument on many of these postings is that the enterprise is spending way too much time, effort and money going through repetitive, and often unnecessary, steps in acquiring and normalizing data and cobbling together independently excellent applications with an integration and management approach that has not changed in 20…Read more

We recently ran across “Data is the new oil” comments. It could most certainly be. But not yet for the vast majority of firms. Below explains why.
Oil – it is an interesting analogy since it opens up the debate of cost and time of extraction versus the value generated.
For many the cost of extracting value from data continues to present too high a discount compared to…Read more
GRC Posted By Simon Moss on Wed, May, 14th 2014 @ 06:59 AM
Despite huge progress in analytical abilities, GRC or Risk Management transparency, agility and competitiveness is still undermined by a deployment and data management approach that has not changed in 20 years.
Structural risk issues within financial institutions are fundamentally no different now than to those of Basel I and Barings in 1995, different to Long Term Capital’s failure in 1998, no different to the dot-com bubble…Read more
GRC Posted By Simon Moss on Tue, May, 6th 2014 @ 10:02 AM
“The Pneuron way” – taking analytics and the processing to the data, distributing the entire business model as a “fabric” of simple to deploy interoperable components from a single screen with no coding, no new infrastructure, no systems replacement and no large traditional data and systems integration cost. The use cases and deployments are stacking up as our customers use Pneuron to unlock waves of…Read more
BI / Big Data / Analytics Posted By Simon Moss on Mon, April, 21st 2014 @ 05:59 AM
So we are watching the Big Data breakthroughs – some genuinely interesting stuff happening. It does not justify the impressive promises and marketing budgets, but we are all gaining some visibility into its value, and its applicability is becoming clearer. The common denominator for Big Data success is settling on the left of the value spectrum of business problems – discovery, trend analysis and aligned…Read more

We don’t have to look hard to see that business intelligence application delivery is struggling to surface the benefits of “agile” methods. That struggle seems to be best articulated by IT having implemented a technology stack that has more levels than the Empire State Building.
The core process for over two decades has been the construction of a centralized data integration platform, a data warehouse storing all…Read more
