Over the past decade, well over a thousand Wall Street analysts, money managers and institutional investors have joined thousands of savvy private investors in gaining key tech industry insights and intelligence from industry veteran and celebrated investor Paul McWilliams in his role as editor of Next Inning Technology Research.

Topics discussed in McWilliams' recent reports include:
-- Cree: In 2012 when Cree was trudging through the low to mid-$20s, McWilliams encouraged Next Inning readers to build a position in the stock. The bullish thesis was simple: Cree would be a big winner in the LED lighting market, and with higher revenue, profit margins would increase. While Cree has traded with high volatility this year, investors that took McWilliams advice have seen huge gains. With Cree trading well off its mid-$70 high today, is it time to accumulate shares ahead of its calendar Q4 report? What are the four elements of McWilliams investment thesis for Cree going forward?
-- SanDisk: In July 2012, when SanDisk was trading at $36.48, McWilliams told investors that SanDisk was deeply undervalued and he set a $70 price target. SanDisk hit McWilliams' $70 target last October, but until just recently, was unable to break through resistance. Does the recent move towards the mid-$70s signal there is more to come? What is different about the demand elasticity for NAND Flash memory when compared to DRAM and why is this difference an important fact for memory investors to consider today? What is the ultimate potential demand for NAND Flash, and what has McWilliams set as an estimated full value price range for the stock, under the right conditions?
-- AMD: McWilliams suggested buying AMD in late 2012 when the stock slipped below $2. With the stock up now more than 100%, is it time for investors to take profits or does he think the company will continue to build traction with its new strategies in 2014? What is McWilliams forecast for AMD's earnings in 2014, and what price target does he think the stock will hit if he's right?
-- Texas Instruments: In line with the prediction McWilliams made five years ago, TI exited the mobile markets and has repositioned itself as an embedded processor solutions company. In what ways does this new direction put TI in the center of the new growth paradigm known as the "Internet of Things" or IoT? What two factors are driving this new paradigm, and why does McWilliams think TI is perfectly positioned to be a leader in the market? What data leads McWilliams to forecast that TI's depreciation costs will continue to plunge and with that, boost earnings above the consensus expectation?
-- Xilinx: As we prepared to enter 2012, McWilliams forecasted Xilinx would outperform Altera for the next two years. Because Altera had been the big winner during 2010 and 2011, this was a bold prediction that went against the grain of Wall Street forecasts. However, McWilliams was right – Xilinx was the winner hands down in all categories. For 2012 and 2013, the price of Xilinx went up 48.9% while the price of Altera went down 10.1%. Does McWilliams continue to view Xilinx as a more attractive investment than its rival Altera? What key trends in the programmable logic sector are important to Xilinx and Altera investors and how does McWilliams see these trends shaping up in 2014?

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
