"The reality is clear," according to Infoworld's David Linthicum. "Unlike other technology trends, which largely confused the leaders in the boardroom, cloud computing has enjoyed strong PR among those who manage the money. That's good news for IT organizations interested in trying to get the promised value from the cloud—the people who hold the purse strings will likely support the creation of an initial cloud computing strategy and the first cloud computing projects."

- Encrypted OSB Service account passwords | Capgemini Oracle Blog
"In the OSB source code, the password in the service account is stored as clear text," says Capgemini Senior Oracle Consultant John Chin-A-Woeng. "So the passwords end up in the source code repository (e.g. subversion), which is bad practice. To solve this problem, we can either introduce a manual step during deployment, or use encrypted passwords." Learn how in John's post.
Thought for the Day
"Programming without an overall architecture or design in mind is like exploring a cave with only a flashlight: You don't know where you've been, you don't know where you're going, and you don't know quite where you are."
