Podcast: Stop Worrying and Learn to Love Disruptive Tech

The latest OTN ArchBeat podcast series grew out of a brief Twitter conversation.

Several weeks ago I noticed a couple of tweets between Oracle ACE Directors Floyd Teter and Ron Batra, in which they mentioned a great conversation they had had about disruptive technologies. I cajoled them into extending that conversation for a podcast, focusing on the impact of disruptive technologies on enterprise IT and on architects. They agreed, and asked to pull fellow Oracle ACE Director Basheer Khan into the mix.

These three gentlemen are architects, veterans in enterprise IT, and each brings a unique perspective to this discussion. I had fun picking their brains, and I'm sure you'll enjoy the conversation.

ArchBeat Link-o-Rama Top 10 for November 1, 2012

Hurricane Sandy Edition

Power outages in the Cleveland area made it impossible to publish posts on Tuesday and Wednesday. In my neighborhood most are still without power. The sound of howling winds that dominated on Monday and Tuesday has been replaced by the sound of of portable generators. My internet connection was restored only after AT&T U-Verse crewmen hooked up a portable generator to power the relay station up the street. Bear in mind that Cleveland is 500 miles from the Atlantic coast.

Thought for the Day

"On two occasions I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question."
