Stocks to win from cloud computing boom –

Posted on Apr 26, 2015 in Cloud News

Disruptive technologies are new ways of getting things done that “disrupt” current ways of doing things.  History is replete with examples of disruptive technologies dating back to mankind’s first spear.  A contemporary example is cloud computing, which frees consumers and corporations from the burden of housing computing resources at their location.

Amazon Reveals an Impressive Performance in Cloud Computing – Times LIVE

Posted on Apr 24, 2015 in Cloud News

For years, the online retailer’s revenue and its stock market returns have been energised by an entirely different kind of commerce: renting processing power to startups and, increasingly, established businesses. Amazon helped popularise the field - known as cloud computing - and largely had it to itself for years, an enormous advantage in an industry where rivals usually watch each other closely.

Raytheon Revs Up Growth With Bold Websense Cyber Venture – Forbes

Posted on Apr 20, 2015 in Enterprise Cloud

Raytheon Raytheon disclosed early Monday that it is acquiring cybersecurity firm Websense and will form a joint venture with Vista Equity Partners to greatly expand the defense company’s global cyber offerings.  The new venture, in which Massachusetts-based Raytheon will hold an 80% stake, would subsume its cyber-products business and the much larger Websense network-security enterprise that Vista took private in 2013.  Company executives say the move will accelerate Raytheon’s efforts to offer “defense-grade” cyber solutions to civil and commercial customers while generating growth rates and margins superior to those prevailing in its military hardware markets. I talked to several principals involved in the transaction on Sunday, including Raytheon Chairman & CEO Thomas Kennedy and Websense CEO John McCormack (Raytheon contributes to my think tank).  To say they are excited about the pending business combination would be an understatement.  From Kennedy’s viewpoint, global demand for cybersecurity products and services is exploding, and the joint venture will enable his company to deliver market-beating solutions across the full range of potential customers.  With 50% of Websense sales already overseas, the transaction will reinforce Raytheon’s pre-existing strategy of generating a larger share of sales from foreign markets than other first-tier defense contractors. The combination is complementary in other ways too.  Raytheon’s domestic cyber business is especially strong in military and intelligence markets, whereas Websense is mainly concentrated in civil and commercial markets.  David Wajsgras, who runs the Raytheon business unit focused on information and intelligence lines, stresses that “Websense is not concentrated in any particular vertical” segment of the cyber market, but is well-positioned in financial services, healthcare, insurance, real estate and manufacturing — areas where Raytheon had not previously been a big player.  Now it will be.
