Why IT is struggling to build private clouds
InformationWeek
IT is under pressure to build private clouds, which means creating a data center architecture that can deliver the same kind of flexible, scalable computing as public clouds from Amazon Web Services and other providers.

InformationWeek

Making sense of big data and its role in your business
ITProPortal.com
Large organizations around the world are working to develop and integrate big data analytical facilities alongside their existing business intelligence structures. These initiatives are motivated in nearly equal parts by the conviction that new insights and opportunities are buried in the avalanche of new data, by the knowledge that conventional business intelligence systems are unequal to the task and by the fear that competitors will be first to master and exploit the available new data streams.

Finally: Robots learn what 'squishy' really means
IEEE Spectrum
Humans use all sorts of bizarre, abstract terms to describe how objects feel, and it's endlessly frustrating to robots. Or at least, we imagine it must be. Take a word like "squishy," for example: How would you explain that feeling to a robot that experiences touch through some long series of numbers? Researchers at University of Pennsylvania's Haptics Group and University of California, Berkeley have developed a system to teach robots how these abstract terms apply to real-world objects, to help our mechanical friends communicate with us in a more relatable way.

InformationWeek

There are a few members of the latter camp among the 446 business technology professionals from companies with at least 50 employees responding to the InformationWeek 2013 State of Cloud Computing Survey. They made comments such as "I won't trust my checkbook to the cloud, why should I trust anything else?" and "Another IT fad filled [with] flaws and glitches."
