“Venture funds are going to continue to allocate more to the enterprise space”

“major trends in the area of cloud,  mobile, big data all hitting at the  same time, will lead to greater investments.”

“You’ve got Android and iOS as the kings and BlackBerry and Symbian disappearing — no one really cares about them.”

Is there room for a third mobile player, and will Windows play a role? I think the BYOD trend mitigates against that in the enterprise market.

“In 2012, big data was a big buzzword—which meant CIOs  had to learn to speak Hadoop, NoSQL, and social media. What’s next? Enterprises all get they need to have a  big-data strategy as a core technology.”

“An interesting trend is more in-memory analytics. There’s a lot of large,  commercial proprietary vendors like SAP with Hana and now there’s a lot popping  in the open source communities like Shark  and Spark.”

“Now that we see a lot of infrastructure for big data in place, we are going  to start seeing what I call “big apps.”  Apps haven’t been rebuilt yet to take advantage of the large amount of data  that we are actually storing. So that’s coming.”

“Android is bigger and iOS is monetizing better, with more engagement and app  downloads. Android lags iOS monetization someone in the area of 3x to 5x. ”

“I wouldn’t want to be an enterprise software company without a strong vision  of how to deliver on a tablet. The average consumer has something like 37 apps on their phone and a number  are for business. So [mobile apps for business] are still way under-penetrated.”

“Another big opportunity is, as people people bring tablets into the enterprise,  they will need security and content management.”

“We’ve spent billions on securing networks and I don’t think it  works. People will continue to try. But ultimately we’re going to have to  come up with ways to secure the assets itself—not necessarily the room, but the  asset in it. We will need a lot of startups doing that.”

“In terms of adoption of cloud, it’s still early. In terms of opportunities,  the whole stack is getting reimagined into a new kind of virtual data  center. The new thing is virtualization of networking and of the data layer. … there are opportunities around how companies  that have amassed a whole bunch of big data inexpensively turn that into more  important data and extract more meaningful value. There’s another opportunity in the software-defined networking space.”

“It’s amazing how much clouds like Amazon have matured in terms of the number  of services they offer.  Next is to make it easier for enterprises to consume the cloud and also get  their arms around their spend, efficiency, and management on the public  cloud.”

“Incumbents trying to protect their historical way of doing things in  silos. . . . We’re moving to a  world of converged compute and we have a couple of companies, SimpliVity and  Nebula, in that world that are going to disrupt how companies think about  rolling out hardware and software.  … What will die is enterprise infrastructure  projects that take that weeks or months to implement. … because of the  talent crunch. So all sizes of companies, there’s so much demand for talent,  people want to ship things [rather than work on slow enterprise-software  implementations].”

“People will be surprised by the number of enterprise tablet apps. Hit enterprise  tablet apps will come out of nowhere.”

“What’s going to be the hottest brand new tech in  2013?  Mobile-first enterprise apps that change  the way we work on mobile devices.  Big apps. …  Open-source projects for in-memory analytics.”
