This section of CTOvision, optimized for CTOvision Pro readers, captures the latest context and assessments on the big tech providers.

  • Amazon AWS: Dominating In Cloudcomputing, Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and IoT

    We have been tracking Amazon for years, but as a reference point consider that in November 2006 BusinessWeek ran a cover story with the title “Jeff Bezos’ Risky Bet” where the concept of cloud computing as a business model disruptor was catapulted into the mainstream. Since then the risky bet has paid off for Amazon […]

    Apple: Increasingly an enterprise IT company

    We all know and use Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). And at a market cap of $591B they are clearly an IT player that will stick around and do big things for a long time to come. For those of us who have worked with them through the decades we have seen a slow shift that started with […]

    Cisco Systems, Inc

    We know Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) really well and you probably do too. So we almost didn’t include them in our list of tech firms here. They are one we all need to watch all the time anyway. But we thought it was important to remind you, even though it is stating the obvious, that Cisco […]

    Dell: Privately owned PC and server maker

    Dell Inc is privately owned. So it is hard to say what their exact size is, but before being delisted they were number 51 on the Fortune 500 list, so they have mass. We still see Dell frequently in the enterprise IT space and know all technologists have familiarity with what they can do in […]

    EMC: Transforming Businesses and Service Providers

    EMC is a global leader in enabling businesses and service providers to transform their operations and deliver Information Technology as a service.

    Google: Innovating in AI but can they catch up with cloud leaders?

    We track Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) as a Tech Titan, of course. They have a market cap of over $544B and deserve the honor of being in this category. From an enterprise IT standpoint, their championing of the Android operating system has earned them a place in the mobility domain, and their Google Apps offering helped show […]

    HP Enterprise (HPE): Focused on the enterprise market

    There are now two HPs. The other is HP Inc. There are confusing similarities in the brands and some market overlap, but think of HP Inc as serving the consumer and HPE (NYSE:HPE) as serving the enterprise. Here is how HPE describes themselves: Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company is a provider of technology solutions. The Company […]

    HP Inc (formerly Hewlett-Packard Company): PCs and Printers

    There are now two HPs. There may have been smart business reasons for doing that, but for busy IT professionals it is confusing for the brand and there is just no way around that. Let me try to clear it up. HP Inc sells computers, solutions and services. But HP Enterprise sells services, solutions and […]

    IBM: Technology for both enterprises and the startup world

    One reason to track IBM (NYSE:IBM) is to watch as they react to the threats from firms like Amazon.  What Amazon has done in Cloud Computing is absolutely incredible and it really helped wake up IBM to the need to innovate in this area. But IBM also invests a great deal in their own internal R&D […]

    Intel Corporation: Designing and manufacturing digital technology platforms

    Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) is best known for chips, but is involved in many other aspects of the delivery of compute platforms. At a current market cap of $164B they have the resources to continue to innovate and we expect to see Intel as a Tech Titan for years to come. From Reuters: Intel Corporation is […]

    MicroSoft: Still dominating in enterprise office automation

    All enterprise professionals should continue to track MicroSoft (NASDAQ:MSFT). With a market cap of $450B they are not going anywhere soon. We focus most of our energy tracking smaller, more disruptive firms since most enterprise technologists will know how to get updates on MicroSoft, but like the other Tech Titans we track we have to […]

    Oracle Corporation: Addressing enterprise IT infrastructure

    Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) is one of the most widely known Tech Titans, and at a $169B market cap has plenty on hand to continue innovating and acquiring new capabilities. They will be around. Here is how they describe themselves: Oracle Corporation (Oracle) provides products and services that address all aspects of corporate information technology (IT) environments, including […]

    Verisign: Security Services

    With this post we are initiating coverage of Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN).
