littleredrooster: Annual revenues in the global cloud infrastructure market are expected to roughly triple over the next three years to $133 billion, led by AWS and Microsoft's Azure cloud business hTTps:// Amazon Reigns Over Cloud Market 30/07/2019 11:48pm Dow Jones News By Angus Loten Inc. continues to dominate the market for basic computing resources that companies access online, largely by outspending its rivals on data centers and other physical resources, corporate tech executives and industry analysts say. Annual revenue from Amazon Web Services, or AWS, grew 27% last year to $15.5 billion, representing nearly half of the $32.4 billion in total revenues generated by providers in the global cloud infrastructure market, Gartner Inc. said in a report this week. Microsoft Corp., its closest rival, captured roughly 15% of the market, up from 12.7% in 2017. No other cloud provider broke 10%, the report said. By moving to the cloud, companies are outsourcing their computing needs: Cloud infrastructure services use their own data centers to provide companies with the raw computing components they have traditionally run in costly in-house data centers. This includes servers, storage, networking and other hardware that cloud-services companies offer on a pay-as-you-go basis. "AWS is a dominant leader in this space because of their size and scale, " said Chris Smith, vice president of cloud architecture at Unitas Global LLC, a Los Angeles-based hybrid cloud-services company that is a customer of AWS. He said AWS has "built an incredible ecosystem to support the variety and scale of needs required by their customers." Amazon's position shows that "scalability matters" for chief information officers and other senior enterprise information-technology managers choosing a cloud infrastructure vendor, Gartner vice president Sid Nag said in a research note. "Right now, AWS is the furthest in terms stability, scalability and product set," said Fred Lee, chief technology officer at online auto dealership, an AWS customer. Amazon, a cloud market pioneer, on Tuesday launched a network of new data centers in Bahrain, raising the total number of what the company calls "availability zones" to 69 across 22 geographic regions. Each zone contains interconnected data centers. The sheer scale of Amazon's network of data centers provides users with ready and reliable access to secure computing power. The company said it plans to build nine new zones in Indonesia, Italy and South Africa. The expansion is aimed at meeting the rising demand from business customers for the computer capacity needed to deploy artificial intelligence, data analytics and other advanced capabilities, the company said. AWS customers include large companies such as Dole Food Co., Hess Corp. and McDonald's Corp., as well as thousands of startups and small businesses. Annual revenues in the global cloud infrastructure market are expected to roughly triple over the next three years to $133 billion, led by AWS and Microsoft's Azure cloud business, according to Forrester Research. Amazon last week reported $8.4 billion in sales by AWS in the latest quarter, a 37% increase from the year-earlier period. Operating income in its cloud-computing business rose 29% to $2.1 billion, the company said. Part of Amazon's dominance in the market is simply the result of deep pockets, Forrester says. It estimates that AWS spends billions of dollars every quarter building new data centers or expanding existing ones. Apart from Microsoft, most cloud-market challengers are struggling to keep up as Amazon pours more cash into its physical resources, according to Forrester. "We manage millions of customer interactions every day, so we need the ability to scale our IT environment," said Zviki Ben-Ishay, chief executive and co-founder of Lightico Ltd., a Tel Aviv- and New York-based startup that uses AWS to develop customer collaboration software for contact centers. Scale was also a key factor for Kevin Freiburger, director of identity programs at Valid SA, an identity management and biometric matching software maker based in Rio de Janeiro. He said the company chose AWS for a recent job to update Vermont's driver's license issuing system because its giant data-center network is able to automatically scale as demand increases, among other factors. "Our projects are a massive software undertaking and require instant access to infrastructure," Mr. Freiburger said. "We do not have time in a 12-month project to lose three months preparing the data center so that we can start deploying software," he said. Write to Angus Loten at

littleredrooster: hTTps:// Tech Rally Powers Record Gains for Stocks 21/07/2019 10:59am Dow Jones News By Amrith Ramkumar The biggest technology companies are propelling major U.S. indexes' record run, highlighting investor enthusiasm for the hottest stock sector as economic growth softens. Together, Microsoft Corp., Apple Inc., Inc. and Facebook Inc. have accounted for 19% of the S&P 500's total return this year, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices data through Thursday. That rate is roughly in line with the contributions made by the biggest tech stocks in 2017 and much of last year, before a fourth-quarter reversal helped roil markets. Giant asset managers including Vanguard Group, State Street Corp. and T. Rowe Price Associates Inc. generally increased their stakes in these firms as well as Alphabet Inc. and Netflix Inc. in the first quarter of the year, FactSet data show. The concentrated gains contrast with much of the market. Seven of the S&P 500's 11 sectors remain solidly below records, and shares of small companies that stand to benefit if the Federal Reserve cuts interest rates are well below their recent peaks. The divergence shows investors are putting a premium on assets that offer the prospect of significant growth, which is perceived as scarce with falling rates and lukewarm economic data. Investors in the coming days will weigh second-quarter results from Amazon, Alphabet and Facebook, while Apple is set to report July 30. "Many people just want them whether interest rates are rising, declining or staying where they are," said Jamie Cox, managing partner at Harris Financial Group, which owns shares of Microsoft and Amazon and has been increasing its position in Microsoft recently. Fears that trade tensions will slow global growth have kept many investors cautious, pushing them toward the FAANG stocks -- Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google parent Alphabet -- as well as Microsoft. Many view these firms as less dependent on economic activity and attractive because they tend to participate in hot areas for investment such as cloud computing and artificial intelligence. "If you don't own a core holding in some of the leaders, you might be missing out," said Mona Mahajan, U.S. investment strategist at Allianz Global Investors. "Those few names are probably benefiting disproportionately because they have real growth stories behind them." At the same time, some investors are keeping an eye on signs the rally might be vulnerable. Netflix, among the most popular shares in recent years, tumbled more than 10% Thursday after subscriber data in its latest quarter disappointed Wall Street. Fund managers surveyed by Bank of America Merrill Lynch earlier this month ranked U.S. tech stocks the second-most-crowded trade across markets, trailing only U.S. Treasurys. Crowded trades are ones viewed as so likely to pay off that bad news often results in large losses. "The ones we tend to be a little more leery about are the ones that are growing just because of momentum," said Omar Aguilar, chief investment officer for equities and multiasset strategies at Charles Schwab Investment Management. The FAANG group and Microsoft are in the top 10% of most crowded S&P 500 stocks, according to an analysis by Ann Larson, managing director of global quantitative research at AllianceBernstein. Her firm uses a model to assess popular trades that factors in top holdings by active managers, stakes they have been building in the past several quarters, earnings estimates, stock performance and bank analyst ratings. The analysis also shows that technology is currently the most crowded sector. The biggest tech firms aren't the only ones benefiting. Semiconductor stocks have recovered from a dismal May and climbed in five consecutive weeks even as companies warn that tariffs are hurting their businesses. Shares of smaller social-media companies are rallying in lockstep, with Twitter Inc. up 28% in 2019 and Snap Inc., the parent company of Snapchat, more than doubling this year. Some of those companies are expected to record losses or slower profit growth moving forward, but investors say their gains illustrate a continuing search for greater returns as global bond yields fall. Yields decline as bond prices rise and have plumbed multiyear lows recently. The rally is increasing attention on whether stocks are too expensive based on common valuation metrics. The information-technology sector now has a price/sales ratio of 4.6, FactSet data based on revenues in the past year show, while the broader S&P 500 has a ratio of 2.15. Facebook, Netflix and Microsoft have much higher valuations based on sales than Amazon and Apple. But those concerns have prevailed for years, and some say the time hasn't come to act on them. "The playbook says invest in higher-quality names during times like these, and people are following the playbook," said Brent Schutte, chief investment strategist at Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management.

littleredrooster: hTTp:// Facebook asks governments for help policing internet April 1, 2019 Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has asked governments and regulators to play “a more active role” in policing the internet and the standards of big online companies. Zuckerberg said firms such as his had huge responsibilities, deciding matters such as which content is harmful and what constitutes political advertising. “If we were starting from scratch, we wouldn’t ask companies to make these judgments alone,” he said in an open letter. “By updating the rules for the internet, we can preserve what’s best about it – the freedom for people to express themselves and for entrepreneurs to build new things – while also protecting society from broader harms,” said Facebook’s CEO. Facebook has been criticised for not doing enough to quickly take down harmful content and hate speech, for example after the New Zealand terror attack, and for not being transparent enough over who is paying for political ads. This week, however, it responded to some of that criticism by announcing a ban on content promoting white nationalism and separatism. It is also looking at restrictions on live video streaming. What does Zuckerberg want? In brief, Zuckerberg calls for the following things in the letter: •Common rules that all social media sites need to adhere to, enforced by third-party bodies, to control the spread of harmful content •All major tech companies to release a transparency report every three months, to put it on a par with financial reporting •Stronger laws around the world to protect the integrity of elections, with common standards for all websites to identify political actors •Laws that not only apply to candidates and elections, but also other “divisive political issues”, and for laws to apply outside of official campaign periods •New industry-wide standards to control how political campaigns use data to target voters online •More countries to adopt privacy laws like the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force last year •A “common global framework” that means these laws are all standardised globally, rather than being substantially different from country to country •Clear rules about who’s responsible for protecting people’s data when they move it from one service to another The open letter, which will also be published in some European newspapers, comes as the social network faces questions over its role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal around data misuse during election campaigns.

littleredrooster: Microsoft last wore the most-valuable crown in 2003 Microsoft Rode Cloud To Market-Cap Prize -- WSJ 03/12/2018 8:02am Dow Jones News By Jay Greene This article is being republished as part of our daily reproduction of articles that also appeared in the U.S. print edition of The Wall Street Journal (December 3, 2018). Microsoft Corp. tried through the years to compete in a range of buzzy consumer businesses, but it was Chief Executive Satya Nadella's focus on selling humdrum yet fast-growing computing services to companies that allowed it to reclaim the title of world's most valuable company. Microsoft unseated Apple Inc. for the top spot, closing Friday with a market cap of $851.36 billion, nearly $4 billion higher than the iPhone maker. To get there, Microsoft also had to outpace Inc., Facebook Inc. and Google owner Alphabet Inc., once red-hot tech titans that have been roiled by congressional hearings, investor concerns about growth and caustic tweets from President Trump, controversies Mr. Nadella largely has avoided. The resurgence -- Microsoft last wore the most-valuable crown in 2003 -- can be traced to Mr. Nadella's vigorous pursuit of web-based services known as cloud computing, which had threatened to undermine Microsoft's own business selling productivity and data-center software companies and people installed on their own computers. "They built a strategy for the cloud when the cloud was really starting to emerge," said Matt McIlwain, managing director of Madrona Venture Group, a Seattle firm that invests in cloud startups. "Enterprises started embracing the cloud just as Microsoft was starting to get it right." Microsoft's first ascent up the market-cap mountain was powered by its ubiquitous Windows operating system and Office productivity software, and the aggressive leadership of co-founder Bill Gates. The CEO leveraged his Windows monopoly to move into new markets, a strategy that launched battles with regulators in the U.S. and abroad. Settling those matters led to new rules for Microsoft's conduct that slowed the company's growth. Its stock stagnated for a decade. Since Mr. Nadella took over as CEO five years ago, Microsoft's shares have tripled, buttressing the statuses of Mr. Gates and former CEO Steve Ballmer -- still two of Microsoft's biggest shareholders -- as some of the world's wealthiest individuals. At The Wall Street Journal's WSJ Tech D.Live conference in November, Mr. Ballmer said enterprise business powers Microsoft today. Mr. Nadella took a company with good profit streams and technology "to whole new levels," he said. Microsoft's Azure cloud business has been key, with revenue climbing more than 76% every quarter since the company began reporting the metric in October 2015. "I think Satya has done a great job," Mr. Ballmer said. "I think that's fantastic and as a shareholder I think it's double and triple fantastic." Mr. Nadella has sought to change Microsoft's culture. On his watch, it has taken public positions on contentious issues, calling for regulation of facial-recognition tech and responsible use of artificial-intelligence software. He moved away from some of Mr. Ballmer's bets, dismantling the company's mobile-phone business, and prioritized working with partners in the cloud and elsewhere, putting popular Microsoft apps on Apple's iOS and Google's Android software. "They've succeeded under Satya because they have developed a different persona," said Bob Muglia, a former Microsoft executive who is now CEO of Snowflake Computing Inc., a data-warehousing service. Amazon still dominates the cloud. The online retail giant last year held a 51.8% share of the world-wide cloud-infrastructure market, according to the market-research firm Gartner Inc. Microsoft is second, with 13.3% of the market. Wall Street expects the cloud to keep booming. Gartner estimated the world-wide market for cloud-infrastructure services like the ones Microsoft and Amazon sell will grow to $63 billion in 2021 from $23.6 billion last year. Amazon is aware of Microsoft's presence. At the Amazon Web Services annual conference Wednesday in Las Vegas, Amazon cloud-computing chief Andy Jassy told attendees that Amazon is pulling in more actual dollars than Microsoft, even if its rate of growth is slower. And he introduced a new service that lets customers run Amazon's cloud-computing offerings in their own data centers, taking aim at Microsoft's area of strength. Also contributing to Microsoft's rebirth is productivity software, which helped Microsoft gain the most-valuable crown nearly two decades ago. The commercial version of Office 365 -- a cloud-based subscription version of the traditional Office software -- is among the fastest-growing pieces of a segment that accounts for roughly a third of Microsoft's revenue. Microsoft was once the dominant force in tech, and its use of that power led the U.S. to sue to break it apart. But in recent years, regulators and legislators haven't focused as much on Microsoft. Microsoft never built a successful social network like Facebook that could generate concerns over data security and misinformation. It is a distant second to Google in web search, escaping scrutiny over data harvesting. Its Surface computer and Xbox gaming units are a small enough part of its business that they don't appear to be jeopardized by the trade battle between Washington and Beijing, or a lightning rod for criticism over U.S.-based manufacturing. Microsoft's foray into selling smartphones was a failure -- the company ultimately took charges that exceeded the $9.4 billion Microsoft paid for Nokia Corp. That costly period years ago ended up insulating Microsoft today from a slowdown in the smartphone market that has hammered Apple's stock in recent weeks. Write to Jay Greene at
littleredrooster: the creation of internally generated intellectual property which can be sold across multiple geographies and in multiple formats .. enhance the Group's potential to become the world's leading source of data and analytics for corporates A couple of nice phrases. GlobalData PLC Proposed Acquisition RNS Number : 3282J GlobalData PLC 29 March 2018 "Rationale for the Acquisition The Independent Directors believe that the Acquisition will further advance the Group's transformation into a global data and analytics business with a truly differentiated multi-industry offering, significantly increasing its addressable markets and enhancing the Company's long term growth opportunities. The Acquisition adds the energy industry to the Group, and significantly bolsters the recently formed construction business, following the Group's recent acquisition of MEED Media FZ LLC. It will provide complementary intelligence assets and capabilities relevant to existing healthcare, consumer and financial services industries and is consistent with the Group's strategy. Research Views Group's business will be integrated into the Group's global platform and infrastructure and will operate under the GlobalData brand, strengthening and expanding the markets and geographies the Group serves. With 23 offices located across North and South America, the United Kingdom, Asia Pacific and the Middle East, the Independent Directors believe that the Group's global infrastructure will, when combined with that of the Research Views Group, provide the opportunity for commercial and operational synergies. In particular, the Acquisition will consolidate the Group's expansion of its sales and management infrastructure across Asia Pacific, providing stronger regional capability and expertise for the Group to address the increasing growth in the global data and analytics market. Following Completion, the Independent Directors anticipate that the Group's increased subscription revenues will improve visibility of forward earnings. Furthermore, following Completion and the subsequent integration, the Independent Directors anticipate being able to leverage economies of scale from its enlarged operations and, in particular, in the creation of internally generated intellectual property which can be sold across multiple geographies and in multiple formats. The Independent Directors believe the Acquisition will rapidly strengthen and expand the Group's industry coverage for its core corporate clients and enhance the Group's potential to become the world's leading source of data and analytics for corporates."
littleredrooster: GlobalData PLC 26 February 2018 Possible Acquisition The board of directors ("Board" or "Directors") of GlobalData Plc (AIM:DATA) ("GlobaData", the "Company" and, together with its subsidiary undertakings, the "Group") announces that the Company is in advanced discussions concerning the possible acquisition of Energy, Construction and Financial Services data and analytics companies, Research Views Limited, Progressive Ventures Limited, Progressive Media Ventures Limited and their respective subsidiaries (together the "Target Group"), private companies owned by Mike Danson (CEO, GlobalData) and a number of other minority shareholders including Wayne Lloyd (Managing Director, GlobalData US) (the "Vendors") (the "Acquisition"). It is envisaged that the Target Group will be re-organised prior to completion of the Acquisition to form a single group owned by Research Views Limited. It is currently expected that the consideration for the Acquisition is to be satisfied through the issue of approximately 18 million new ordinary shares in the Company to the Vendors, representing approximately 17.6% of the Company's current issued share capital. The Board intends that appropriate lock-in and orderly market arrangements will be put in place. In the year to 31 December 2017, the Target Group generated pro forma revenues of approximately £27.0m. The Directors believe the Acquisition will further advance the Company's transformation into a global data and analytics company with a truly differentiated multi-industry offering, significantly increasing its addressable market. It will add the Energy industry and strengthen the recently acquired Construction business. It will provide complementary intelligence assets and capabilities relevant to existing Healthcare and Financial Services industries. The Acquisition is commercially aligned to the Group's primarily subscription based model and is operationally complementary especially in the context of the Group's existing analyst and client service operations. Following the Acquisition the Group addresses at least 8 major global industries with a global expert community operating in 23 offices worldwide. The Acquisition is expected to be earnings accretive in the first full year of ownership. If final terms are agreed between the respective parties together with satisfactory due-diligence, the Acquisition will require the approval of GlobalData's shareholders at a general meeting. In addition, the Acquisition would constitute a related party transaction for the purposes of Rule 13 of the AIM Rules for Companies, and the Company's independent directors would, amongst other things, be required to confirm that the terms of the proposals are fair and reasonable insofar as GlobalData's shareholders are concerned. The Acquisition remains subject to binding legal agreements and there can be no certainty that these discussions will lead to a transaction. Further announcements will be made at the appropriate time.
littleredrooster: hxxp:// By Jeff Berman M&E Connections August 15, 2017 AWS Exec: Machine Learning’s Undergoing a ‘Renaissance’ "NEW YORK — Machine learning is undergoing a “renaissance” now thanks to the increasing shift of data storage to the cloud, according to Matt Wood, Amazon Web Services (AWS) GM-artificial intelligence (AI). That’s because “the cloud has enabled machine learning and customers to overcome the single largest point of friction, which is almost always around scale,” he told the AWS Summit Aug. 14 during a keynote in which AWS also introduced the new machine-learning based security service Amazon Macie and announced new cloud service client wins that included Hulu. “When you’re working with machine learning and training machine learning models, you need tons and tons of data — the more the merrier,” Wood said. The concept is simple. “The more data you put in, the more likely it is that your model is going to be accurate,” he said. When you have all that data, you then “need to be able to train it at scale – typically using high-end” graphics processing units (GPUs), he said. “Once you train those models, you need to be able to perform predictions against them, also at scale, both in the cloud” and “at the edge through connected devices or on mobile apps,” he said. AWS has been “addressing these challenges for customers for over a decade,” he went on to say, noting that its customers have been “aggressively migrating everything out of their data centers up to AWS as quickly as they can,” and nearly all the new data “has been generated in the cloud by default.” Earlier in the keynote, Wood pointed out that “it’s never been cheaper, easier or more cost-effective for customers to be able to pull data from their program applications, their web applications, their IoT applications – even their data centers – and load it up onto AWS.” Once that data is in the cloud, “customers typically want to be able to get some value out of that data,” he said, explaining: “They want to be able to analyze and they want to be able to compute against it. They want to be able to ask questions and get answers back in a reasonable time.” Before, “inside the constrained walls of the data center” on premises, that was “extremely challenging” because companies were “stuck with a fixed set of resources unless” they wanted to make large capital investments, he said. So, customers typically “ended up being crammed inside that same box,” inside the walls of their data centers, he said. However, he said: “In the cloud, those data center walls – they just disappear. And so, customers can start to collect the data that they need, aggregate it at the right level and ask the questions which are truly important to their data.”"
