Salesforce Poaches Cisco’s Collaboration Guru

first_imgMassive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… IT + Project Management: A Love Affair steven walling 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Doug Dennerline spent ten years at Cisco and was most recently Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Collaboration Software Group, making him the man in charge of WebEx and other popular offerings. He was also the one spearheading a rumored move by Cisco to make an online competitor to Microsoft Office and other Web-based collaboration suites. But today Dennerline is departing the company for CRM- and platform-as-a-service company Salesforce, where he’s becoming its head of enterprise sales in the Americas. Before heading up the SaaS wing at Cisco, he was a senior VP at the commercial and enterprise sales groups. Dennerline will become the Salesforce executive vice president of enterprise sales in the Americas, meaning that he’ll be moving further away from the kind of product strategy work he did as VP at Cisco’s Collaboration Group. Salesforce recently posted a 20% increase in revenue for its second quarter, bumping it up to $316.1 million. But in the long term, the company is still facing some competition from both Microsoft and Oracle in the CRM space despite its current dominance. It has also moved into different territory with its Force.com cloud platform for both applications and sites. For both areas, bringing in a leader in sales from Cisco who really groks cloud computing and collaborative software is a serious win for Salesforce. As for the “why” of the matter for Dennerline, there’s been no comment so far from either Salesforce or Cisco. Whether it was just a case of better opportunities and compensation or something more cultural, it’s unclear at the moment. What is clear is that Cisco is losing a real veteran in a rapidly evolving and lucrative space.

Google Goes Native: Offers Sneak Peek at C++ Support in Chromium

first_imgThis week, the Chromium project offered a sneak peak to its Native Client SDK. This project enables the browser to process C and C++ in the client and interface these methods and encapsulations with HTML and JavaScript. Additionally, the project provides bridges to portable graphics and audio engines in an attempt to further configure the browser for visual processing speed.Why Do Web Clients Need C++?It seems particularly appealing to have the ability to have more graphics power and speed by using native libraries for C and C++. From the Chromium blog: “… the SDK lets you write C/C++ code that works seamlessly in Chromium and gives you access to powerful APIs to build your web app.”Here, in Google’s video, Henry Bridge, program manager for the SDK shares the scenario of building a video editing application and where native C++ code fits in to the web development paradigm. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting This demonstration shows weaving of HTML, JavaScript, and C++ methods in peaceful co-existence. One of the nice things about the interfaces from the native SDK, showing an implementation of NPAPI that implements Open GLS 2.0.Lower Level Virtualization, Everywhere We took a quick look at the project comments to see what the initial reaction is from developers. One of the themes heard from developers want Google to go further with cross compatible libraries and abstract itself with LLVM (Low Level Virtual Machine) approach towards interfacing with specific compiler implementations. From what we see, Google is planning on enabling additional compilers and plans to support LLVM in time. The company is inviting developers to start building with the SDK now.Beyond JavaScript Dan Lewis, from the Native Client SDK team will be sharing thoughts on when and where it is best to use native code (rather than JavaScript) at the upcoming Google I/O event. How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud mike kirkwood Google is making progress in emphasizing the browser the default experience for application frameworks and bringing C and C++ libraries into the mix makes sense for higher-order fun in building compelling tools.Web developers, are there places in your code that you would want to always default to lower level libraries such as C++?

Learn about Native Client and how you can use it to build rich applications with all of the advantages and power of the web.”A Few Architecture MusingsSeveral things come to mind when thinking about the connection of browser, compilers, and the cloud in respect to Native Client SDK.Will the adoption of C++ in the core influence implementations in the back-end service design? If you know your client has a native compiler will web service orientated services package lower level objects to the client?Will the OS share implementations with the browser in the future for compiling code, or will the browser continue to bring in more OS layers over time?Will tools like Flash also implement similar strategies, and/or share libraries such as the one’s being packaged in the Native Client SDK?Will this influence web frameworks like PHP and other tools that also have been implementing C and C++ compilers to speed up operations. Will there be tighter coupling of processing and will local clients have options on how much to process locally?Is this an prelude to a disrupting the games market, but offering a powerful enough browser to process games today? Can existing game code be ported easily and wrapped in a web view? Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo…last_img read more

MGP demands Parrikar should hand over charge until he recovers

first_imgDeepak Dhavaliakar, president of Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s ally in Goa, on Saturday said that the State administration under ailing Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has been paralysed for over eight months and demanded that Mr. Parrikar should hand over charge to someone else until he recovers.The central committee of MGP on Saturday passed a resolution in this regard and decided to join a protest of mining dependents of Goa, to be held at Jantar Mantar, Delhi, to urge the National Democratic Alliance to resolve the impasse caused by the mining ban at the earliest.“The MGP will participate in the protest meet by mining dependents seeking resumption of mining in Goa,” Mr. Dhavalikar said.The Supreme Court banned mining in Goa in February, quashing granting of second renewals of 88 iron ore mining leases. The apex court also directed the State government to allot the leases afresh.Goa BJP leaders and national president of BJP, Amit Shah, have said that the Central government will work out a mechanism to resume mining in Goa at the earliest.last_img read more
