Google ads chief: Personalization is the company’s next big thing

Google’s top advertising executive, Susan Wojcicki, said on Wednesday that Google’s biggest innovations over the next several years will be in personalized search results and ads.

Her remarks, made at a presentation at the Search Marketing Expo conference, come amidst substantial controversy about the consolidated privacy policy the company will officially adopt March 1.

In fact, both Wojcicki and Jack Menzel, a Google director of product management who addressed the conference on Tuesday, acknowledged that the Internet giant is still figuring out how exactly to handle personalized search queries and advertising content.

Asked what big innovations users could expect from Google in the next three to five years, Wojcicki recounted her own personal-best Google advertising experience. When her 3-year-old daughter announced she wanted to take Chinese lessons, Wojcicki asked all of her friends who the best teacher might be. After talking to several people, she got a name. She then realized that on the very page displaying her initial email request, the same teacher’s name appeared.

“If this happened all the time, I wouldn’t have to go ask my friends. I could just have Google magically tell me,” Wojcicki said. “To do that, we’ll have to do some of the work that we’re doing now” in terms of personalization and “getting to know our users better.”

Wojcicki made the same point when she discussed Google+, which earned just three minutes a month of its users’ Web time in January, according to a recent Wall Street Journal article citing comScore figures.

She suggested that Google+ was the gateway to “the next generation of Google products,” although users may not understand that yet. Those products will be “different because our users are logged in and are telling us something about themselves.”

Wojcicki envisioned a positive user experience resulting from different users typing in the same “best vacations” search. Her results might be more family friendly, she said, describing precisely the kind of controversial type of conclusion about a user that the Internet giant could make by analyzing the combined usage data it will have on that person when the new privacy policy kicks in.

She described ads as just more information, and said she hopes Google will reach a point where it provides only ads that users “want to see.”

Avaya Is Said to Plan $1 Billion IPO for as Soon as April

Avaya Holdings Corp., the communications-gear maker owned by private-equity firms Silver Lake and TPG Capital, plans to hold its initial public offering as soon as April, two people with knowledge of the matter said.

The company, based in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, filed in June to raise $1 billion in an IPO. It put off the sale amid stock-market swings that left some investors reluctant to buy shares in newly minted companies, said the people, who asked not to be identified. The timing could slip, the people said.

Cisco Systems Inc., the top manufacturer of networking equipment and a competitor to Avaya, slumped 11 percent last year, while rival Juniper Networks Inc. dropped 45 percent. The weakness reflected concerns that customers would delay upgrades amid economic turmoil. The outlook brightened in recent weeks after quarterly results from Cisco exceeded profit and sales estimates and analysts predicted that AT&T Inc., the largest U.S. telephone company, would step up capital spending.

Avaya Inc., which is owned by Avaya Holdings, reported on Feb. 13 that its fourth quarter net loss narrowed to $26 million from $180 million a year earlier while sales rose 1.5 percent to $1.39 billion. The company cut costs in fiscal 2011 by eliminating jobs and consolidating facilities.

Market Share

Synergy Research Group said in August that Avaya gained share in the global market for voice equipment for corporate customers. It ranks No. 2 in the market behind Cisco.

Telecommunications capital spending began increasing last year for the first time since 2009, according to Yankee Group. The research firm said last May that global expenditures will rise to $302.2 billion in 2014 from $275.7 billion in 2011.

Stacey Torman, a representative of Avaya, declined to comment.

AT&T, based in Dallas, is planning to make “reasonably healthy” orders from networking companies this year, Jefferies Group Inc. said in report yesterday.

Avaya was spun off from Lucent Technologies Inc. in 2000 and taken private in 2007 for $8.2 billion. Later, it acquired an equipment business from Nortel Networks Corp. for $943 million.

Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. are leading the IPO, Avaya said in its June 9 filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The company didn’t disclose how many shares it will sell or give a price range in the filing.

Government Moves Toward Cloud Computing ‘Perfect Storm’

Amid mounting budget pressures and a maturing set of technologies, the federal government is poised for the rapid adoption of cloud computing services over the next several years, according to one of the senior agency leaders helping craft a government-wide cloud strategy.

While federal tech chiefs have long envisioned an environment in which agency storage and applications are hosted and shared throughout the government, the policy reforms required for such a shift, though still very much a work in progress, have recently come into focus and figure to precipitate a major migration to the cloud over the next several years, said David McClure, the associate administrator of the General Services Administration’s Office Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies.

Google — Microsoft sues over Android because Windows Phone 7 has failed

The war of words between Google and Microsoft has heated up even further, with Google’s patent counsel essentially charging that the only reason Microsoft has been going after Android phone makers for patent infringement is because Microsoft’s mobile phone strategy has failed. He also warns that the patent system is broken and may dramatically slow down innovation.

Tim Porter, Google’s patent counsel, was interviewed by SFGate. He pulls no punches about Microsoft’s motivations for suing Android manufacturers, or threatening them with suits as a way to get them to pay royalties. He says:

This is a tactic that Microsoft has used in the past, with Linux, for example. When their products stop succeeding in the marketplace, when they get marginalized, as is happening now with Android, they use the large patent portfolio they’ve built up to get revenue from the success of other companies’ products.

Porter takes aim not only at Microsoft, but at the entire patent system, and comes close to arguing that software simply shouldn’t be patentable. First he says:

You can look at the development of the software industry and see a point when (software wasn’t being patented) and it was a period of intense innovation. You didn’t see Microsoft’s first software patent until 1988. By that time it had come out with Word, not to mention DOS.

So there’s just no question you can look back and see that innovation happens without patents. It’s also true that since there weren’t patents, there wasn’t software patent litigation.

Then when asked point-blank whether software should be patentable, he hems and haws, not quite calling for an end to software patents:

I think the question is whether the current system makes sense. During the period I talked about, software was protected by copyright and other legal protections. There are certainly arguments those are more appropriate.

Microsoft, of course, takes a very different approach, and says that the infringing Android patents cost the company money, and all it’s doing is getting paid fairly for its work.

And Microsoft gets paid very well, indeed, by Android manufacturers who have signed royalty agreements with it. Goldman Sachs estimates that Microsoft will get $444 million from Android royalties for fiscal year 2012. Microsoft Executive Vice President and General Counsel Brad Smith and Corporate Vice President and Deputy General Counsel Horacio Gutierrez write in a recent blog that the Android agreements:

…ensure respect and reasonable compensation for Microsoft’s inventions and patent portfolio. Equally important, they enable licensees to make use of our patented innovations on a long-term and stable basis.

Who’s right here, Google or Microsoft? In this instance, I can’t say that I know. But I do know that in general Google is right that the patent system is broken when it comes to software, and needs to be significantly reformed. Google’s Porter points out that

The period of intense patent assertions (against things like the steam engine) resulted in decades-long periods of stagnation. Innovation only took off when the patents expired.

Can simulations fill the gap in 21st century ed?

While plenty of schools offer solid computer science training and certification programs, this can be resource intensive and costly in terms of both the necessary hardware instructional expertise required…can simulation software fill the gap?

Whether students live in rural areas, are home-schooled, are exceeding what their schools can offer for coursework, or their schools simply lack technical education resources, a majority of young people struggle to find relevant courses in technology education. While plenty of schools offer solid computer science training and certification programs, this can be resource intensive and costly in terms of both the necessary hardware instructional expertise required.

One rural high school in Walla Walla, Washington (yes, it’s really called Walla Walla, Washington; I’ve been there and it may have a funny name, but there’s nothing like a Walla Walla sweet onion), turned to simulation software to fill the gap in the courses they were able to offer and the skills they were able to impart. Using LabSim software (available both online and locally installed), the school was immediately able to begin running certification programs in A+, Network+, Security+, CCNA and MCSA.

In a town where graduation rates are low, college placement is lower, and unemployment is relatively high, relevant, rigorous vocational programs are a must. Distance learning and “virtual high school” programs, dual enrollment with local community colleges, apprenticeships, and internships can all supplement limited resources. However, LabSim does provide an interesting alternative that can address needs both at the high school, trade school, and community college/post-secondary level.

According to their website,

Learning is doing, and the only way to master a skill is through practical application. The online labs in LabSim give your students the tools they need to truly master essential skills. And learning correctly means allowing them to make mistakes; which is why we developed online labs that allow students to experience a virtual environment where they can explore all the functionality of the application they’re learning.

Course materials include instructional videos, tests and evaluations, as well as simulations ranging from virtual computer repair to sandboxed Linux OS simulations for teaching systems administration skills. As the instructors in Walla Walla found, a hybrid approach of in-class teaching and LabSim work allowed them to reduce their hardware and system needs substantially since much more of the work was simulated.

While the technology and simulations are fairly impressive (and would be a great choice for schools and students who might not otherwise have ready access to full labs or experienced instructors with IT certification backgrounds), they don’t come cheap. You can download a free trial of the Windows-only software here (most courses are now available online, as well). However, courses run on the order of $500 for a single-user license. A single user is literally a single user: once a student has completed the course, the software can’t be used for another student.

The company does offer multi-user licensing for schools including 3-year licensing deals that allow re-use of the software. They will assemble custom quotes, but even with expected savings of up to 50% with multi-user options, costs can still add up quickly.

Update as of 6:45, October 16th: The PR folks who originally contacted me about LabSim clarified pricing structures. Higher education students are eligible for up to 80% discounts over the list price on single user courseware. Thus, students in post-secondary education can access these courses for around $50 a piece, increasing the value proposition significantly. In high schools, LabSim offers site licensing that allows full classes to use the courseware. For the cost of that option, schools will need to contact the company directly. The 50% savings noted above, by the way, is the savings that organizations can realize by offering training for multiple staff members; these costs are outside of their educational pricing.

Schools will need to evaluate whether simulations can meet their needs at lower costs than certified staff and full lab implementations. I’m inclined to believe that’s the case. I’m also inclined to believe that simulations like these are useful as one-offs for students who want to explore coursework that their schools can’t support due to limited funding or interest. In the case of vocational technical schools, though, where well-qualified staff are easier to find and funding for true hands-on, experiential learning is a priority, LabSims will be a harder sell.

Based on the updated pricing above, have my thoughts on LabSims changed? A little bit. As I noted (even at the higher prices), the cost of these programs drastically undercuts staff with significant technical expertise. I also still believe that LabSims can bridge important gaps in public education and even some post-secondary settings where human and physical resources are lacking. However, in vocational-technical settings, these should probably be limited to supplemental materials used in conjunction with hands-on, lab-based learning. When they are supplements, then school IT decision-makers still need to carefully weigh their value, regardless of cost, just as they would any classroom materials they supply to students and teachers.

Microsoft launches new CRM cloud promotion on eve of Salesforce conference

Microsoft is launching a new Dynamics CRM Online promotional deal, as well as unleashing a new spoof virtualization video the same week that Salesforce’s Dreamforce and VMware’s VMworld shows are kicking off.

Microsoft is launching a limited-time promotion for its Dynamics CRM Online service on the opening day of rival’s Dreamforce conference.

Best Microsoft MCTS Certification, Microsoft MCITP Training at

Via its “Cloud CRM for Less” offer, Microsoft is targeting Salesforce, SAP and Oracle switchers, the Redmondians announced on August 29. (However, to qualify, customers seemingly don’t need to be using products or services from any of these vendors.)

Microsoft is offering users $150 in cash per user seat for between 50 and 500 seats per customer. The promotional offer is available between now and March 31, 2012.

Here’s the fine print: The deal is only open to customers in U.S. and Canada and only to those that purchase at least 50 CRM Online licenses. To get the money back, companies need to sign a two-year licensing subscription deal for Microsoft’s Dynamics CRM Online.

Microsoft CRM Online is priced at $44 per user per month.

Microsoft officials have said they plan to roll out a new version of the CRM Online service before the end of this calendar year. They also are going to add CRM Online to Microsoft’s Office 365 hosted-app bundle later this year. Office 365 currently includes Microsoft-hosted Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and Lync Online.

Salesforce isn’t the only company at which Microsoft is taking aim at the start of the week. In honor of VMware’s VMworld conference, which kicks off on August 29, Microsoft also made one of its trademark video spoofs available. Remember Gmail Man? Today, Microsoft took the wraps off his counterpart, Tad, who works for a virtualization company stuck in the past known as VMlimited.

Microsoft hits 30,000 apps twice as fast as Android, same as iOS

Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 devices may not be flying off the shelf, but developers are building for the platform and the Marketplace is passing 30,000 apps in about the same time period as Apple.

Microsoft launched the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace in November 2010 and as they revealed on the Windows Phone Developer Blog they are just about ready to pass 30,000 apps. For comparison, it took Android nearly 17 months to reach this 30,000 milestone while Apple did it in just over 8 months, which is about the same time frame as Microsoft.

Microsoft has put forth major efforts to get developers on board Windows Phone 7 and it is obviously paying off with hundreds of fantastic apps in the Marketplace. I find new apps for my HD7 on a nearly daily basis and haven’t found myself frustrated by a lack of apps. Games are the hottest selling apps on mobile devices and Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE games are outstanding.

Microsoft is now accepting and certifying apps for Mango, which means these updated apps will have support for features like fast app switching, background audio, multiple and double-sided Live Tiles, better Search integration, and more. Since I have Mango on my HTC HD7, I will see these apps start appearing in the Marketplace. There is no word on exactly when Mango will be coming to devices, but with HTC likely announcing new Mango WP7 devices in September I imagine the update should be out next month.
