    Salesforce doubles down on big data with new analytics tool
    All the data "lakes" in the world won't amount to much if you can't figure out what they mean for your business. With that in mind, Salesforce on Thursday unveiled Salesforce Wave for Big Data, a new tool designed to help business users make sense of their information stores using the Salesforce Analytics Cloud. The Analytics Cloud is based on the company's Wave platform, which was launched last October. The overriding goal is to make data more accessible to business users at all levels of the organization, Salesforce has said.

    BrandPost: Top Tech Trends Disrupting the Computing Platform
    In the new computing age of engagement, the world of data expands beyond transaction data in database applications and in cloud services to include interaction data in social media, in mobile apps and in the Internet of Things (IoT). Today, our greatest challenge is managing and making sense out of this data. In order to tackle this challenge and build data-ready organizations, companies need to first understand the four technology trends that are disrupting the computing platform.The four trends include the following:
    1. The economics of cloud is disrupting the computing infrastructure.
    2. The diversity of social media and the Internet of Things are disrupting the data infrastructure.
    3. The richness of big data is disrupting the analytics infrastructure.
    4. The perimeter-less world of pervasive computing is disrupting the security infrastructure.
    Each disruptive trend opens up an exciting new opportunity: hybrid cloud integration, next-generation data integration, Internet of master data and data security intelligence. Informatica is embracing these opportunities by revealing key innovations, including: Project Atlantic for cloud integration, Project Sonoma and Rev for next-generation data integration and preparation, Social360 for the Internet of master data and Secure@Source for data security intelligence and analytics.

    5 tips for keeping your incident response team happy
    A security manager might be turned off when a job candidate calls him “dude” several times during the course of an interview, but it was a minor infraction that Todd Borandi had to overlook. Like many security team leaders seeking highly sought-after technical skills for his incident response team, he had to let small transgressions slide. “People with the mentality to do this type of work operate a little differently than those in an office setting,” says Borandi, who managed a U.S. Department of Energy incident response team before taking his current position as a lead security information architect at a New York financial institution. “[The job candidate] was a brilliant young man,” Borandi recalls. He got hired and is now a successful senior analyst.

    Server sales bolstered by cloud expansions
    Server vendors recorded the strongest shipment growth in over four years for the first quarter, mainly driven by continued investments in the hyperscale server infrastructures that power public and private clouds. It was a great start to the year, with the largest shipment growth since the third quarter of 2010, when the market was recovering from the economic downturn. First-quarter server shipments grew by 13% year on year to 2.7 million units, while revenue grew by almost 18% to $13.4 billion, Gartner said on Thursday. This growth was driven by particularly strong demand from the so-called hyperscale area in the U.S. Hyperscale is a term used to describe distributed systems that use thousands of servers to power cloud and big data infrastructures, according to Gartner. Growth came from all form factors, including rack-optimized, blade, density-optimized and tower servers, according to IDC, which reported similar server numbers on Thursday. Consolidation and virtualization in the enterprise boosted server vendors' revenue, IDC said.

    Lenovo shows smartphone that lets users interact with projected content
    Smartphones and smartwatches won't just display content, but will also be able to beam it on to tabletops, walls and even to the eye, according to Lenovo. More remarkably, users will be able to interact with the projected images. On Thursday, Lenovo unveiled a concept smartphone called "Smart Cast" that's fitted with a laser projector module on top of the device. The feature lets the handset display the phone's content on a hard surface, like a table or wall. However, the phone isn't just a mobile digital projector. It can also read the gestures of users interacting with the projected images. The Chinese company demonstrated the concept device by using it to project a virtual piano keyboard on a table. The user could then play a song on the keyboard.

    Legal trouble in wearables: Jawbone sues Fitbit
    The intense rivalry in the wearables market has spilled over into court with Jawbone accusing rival Fitbit of "systematically plundering" its employees, trade secrets and intellectual property. In a suit filed in San Francisco against Fitbit and five employees, Jawbone said that beginning this year, Fitbit recruiters contacted about 30 percent of Jawbone's employees and induced at least five employees to join the company. The new hires at Fitbit allegedly gained access to and downloaded from their work computers information about Jawbone's current and projected business plans, products and technology. Confidential information was transferred to USB thumb drives or to personal email accounts, according to a copy of the complaint published by The Verge.

    Wi-Fi access point scans can betray a person's location
    Many Android applications collect information on Wi-Fi access points, which researchers contend can be used to figure out where a person is more than 90 percent of the time. The privacy implications of Wi-Fi access point scanning is often overlooked but presents a risk if the information is abused, according to the study, written by the Technical University of Denmark, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Copenhagen. Wi-Fi information isn't considered location data, and Android applications such as Candy Crush Saga, Pandora and Angry Birds routinely collect it. "This makes it possible for third party developers to collect high-resolution mobility data under the radar, circumventing the policy and the privacy model of the Android ecosystem," wrote Sune Lehmann, an associate professor at DTU Informatics at the Technical University of Denmark, in a blog post.
