Argolon SolutionsFree VMWare Server - transform your software development efficiency (7.2.2006, 08:33 UTC)
One of our customers is rightly a big VMWare fan. We have a test-bed in one of their labs running ESX Server with four VMs on one rack-mount. The management and maintenance overhead of this compared to four servers? You do the math(s). If you test software and you don’t use VMWare Workstation, ESX or GSX, you are wasting time and money. Create a base VM, store it somewhere safe, make a copy any time you want to do some testing, test using the copy, finish test, delete copy, start from c...

Argolon SolutionsDisintermediation of Job Sites (4.2.2006, 15:09 UTC)
It was remiss of us not to quickly follow up on a discussion back in early January over at Eirepreneur about the difficulties faced by both job seekers and start-ups in finding each other. The job-seekers have no easy way to identify which start-ups are looking for people whilst start-ups like ourselves find the cost of advertising nationally on a regular basis prohibitive. Our comment to James was that we found the costs too high and the results to be mediocre in using both Monster.ie and The...

Argolon SolutionsSelling with your ears (4.2.2006, 11:14 UTC)
A few years back we were pitching to a large customer for a piece of work. This customer had a lot of problems and we spent two days listening to them pour their hearts out to us. Towards the end we identified a few specific things we would be able to improve for them in a major way and limited our commitments to that. As we were leaving, they thanked us for being the first vendor in a long time who really listened properly to them and didn’t just try to sell them a bunch of inappropriate...

Argolon SolutionsThe first major Storage Industry Blog? (24.1.2006, 21:52 UTC)
We recently discovered that Hu Yoshida, Vice President and CTO of Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) has a blog. This may not seem to be a big deal to many people but it is actually a very major change on several different levels by one of the top players in a traditionally secretive industry. The storage industry has been built entirely on a foundation of proprietary technologies until quite recently. There are very few companies operating in this space at the top end; HP, EMC, IBM and HDS. These com...

Argolon SolutionsThe future of Enterprise Software (5.1.2006, 21:23 UTC)
There have been many blog postings over the past two weeks making technology predictions for 2006 and beyond. Bill Burnham has taken a look back at 2005 and sees that the software industry itself has been shrinking. Last year, the aggregate market capitalization of the software sector shank by almost 10%. From this he makes some very interesting predictions which are very close to what we have been hearing anecdotally and which are supported by many of the moves in the enterprise space in re...

Argolon SolutionsGreat news for S3 (22.12.2005, 07:51 UTC)
As the M.D.’s first employer was S3 (Silicon & Software Systems), we were delighted yesterday to read that they have received €10m in funding. Since their founding around 1986 by Maurice Whelan with backing from Philips they have grown from strength to strength. Like us all they suffered badly post-crash but have recovered incredibly well. The new funding should really enable them to build on that. Mossie really is one of the unsung visionaries of the Irish tech sector. A qui...

Argolon SolutionsInquirer Open Source Database Roundup (10.12.2005, 01:06 UTC)
The Inquirer has a nice round-up of most of the players in the Open Source Datbase Market. Over the past few years, we have dealt with a lot of different customer DBs and here are a few thoughts based on that experience. Overall what we have seen is an inexorable move from Oracle to SQL Server at the high end and a move from commercial DBs to Open Source ones at the low and mid-end. If you have ever used the tools which come with Oracle compared with those for SQL Server, you understand why no...

Argolon SolutionsTurbogears - Well worth a look (10.12.2005, 00:51 UTC)
We recently had to do a very fast turn-around proof-of-concept for a Web-based Dashboard/Portal/UI on a reasonably straightforward relational schema in SQL Server. As this was to be a throw-away development, we decided to leverage it for some internal training and feasibility study. We try to avoid buzzword bingo and don’t jump on every new technology/toolkit just because the usual suspects over at Slashdot are raving about it. Hence we’ll probably get around to looking at Ruby-on-...
