Good analogy and well written. The future of the cloud is about data, the big kind of data. The importance of that data will only improve as it is used by smarter apps on top of a programmable network accessible through common API.

Chuck,

You asked: "But what about something ginormous like email with all the embedded docs we send each other?"

Enormous human capital can be mined from what employees said 3,5, or 10 years ago. Identifying influence is one example; identifying thought leaders is another. Who was saying what, and how much proved to be true?

Knowledge and Information are inherently subjective terms, which is why I stick with Data :-)

Custom Facebook App

take a crack at this whole “Why Applications are like fish and Data is like Wine” meme by extending it to posit that Information is like Cognac

    Chuck has recently joined VMware in a new role, and is quite enthused!

    Previously, he was with EMC for 18 years, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Holliston, MA with his wife, three kids and four dogs when he's not travelling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.

  • Frequency of Updates
    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
  • Comments and Feedback
    All courteous comments welcome. TypePad occasionally puts comments into the spam folder, but I'll fish them out. Thanks!
