Focus and DLD honor ResearchGate, YouPickIt and SAP
Digital innovations are crucial to maintaining a country's future viability. On Monday, 20 January 2014, FOCUS presented for the second time its award for technologies that could prove formative for future markets; the awards ceremony took place as part of the DLD (Digital, Life, Design) innovation conference.
In keeping with the motto of 'Digital Innovation Leaders 2014', a high-profile expert jury assessed innovations by German companies, research institutions, and start-ups. Focus editor-in-chief Jörg Quoos and Focus editor Britta Weddeling presented the awards, which came with media volume worth 50,000 euros, to three German companies.
"Germany needs pioneers whose visions let the German digital economy grow. With the Digital Star Award, Focus honors technologies that deserve to be presented to a wide national and international audience," explained Focus editor-in-chief Jörg Quoos.
The main award, 'Digital Innovation of the Year', went to ReasearchGate, the social network for scientists, to honor their accomplishment in making research more efficient. The award was presented by Claudia Nemat, Board Member of Deutsche Telekom AG, Europe and Technology, to the network's founder Ijad Madisch. "We are delighted about receiving the Focus Digital Star Award, most of all because we have been honored for an idea that is geared toward researchers and might not be understood by everybody right away. The Focus Digital Star Award will give even more people a better understanding of ResearchGate; and this is important because research concerns us all," commented Ijad Madisch.
The young talent award, 'Digital Perspective', was bestowed upon YouPickIt. This website browses the sites of supermarkets, drugstores, DIY superstores, electronics specialists, discounters and soon also gas stations to determine the most reasonable service provider in the proximity by comparing a total of 60 million prices. In doing so, YouPickIt creates full price transparency.
The jury assigned the special 'B2B Award' to SAP. The company's in-memory platform SAP HANA allows for data evaluation in real-time and facilitates new business processes.
The jury members of the Focus Digital Star Award include renowned experts such as DLD founder Steffi Czerny; Stefan Winners, Board Member Digital at Hubert Burda Media; Markan Karajica, Chairman of the Board of ProSiebenSat 1 Digital; investor Lars Hinrichs; and Claudia Nemat, Board Member of Deutschen Telekom AG.
In 2013, the Focus Digital Star Award went to the app provider myTaxi (Hamburg), the auction platform Auctionata (Berlin), and the data analysis software provider Blue Yonder (Karlsruhe).

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
