Market Adoption Cycles for IT Storage

I just want to share a simple graph of what I wrote about in my previous blog entry. I think a picture is worth a thousand words. Have a look at the graph below. I found this in the “Cloud Storage for Dummies” book sponsored by HDS. Full credits to the authors of the book.

Interesting, isn’t it?

About cfheoh

I am a technology blogger with 20+ years of IT experience. I write heavily on technologies related to storage networking and data management because that is my area of interest and expertise. I introduce technologies with the objectives to get readers to *know the facts*, and use that knowledge to cut through the marketing hypes, FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) and other fancy stuff. Only then, there will be progress. I am involved in SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) and as of October 2013, I have been appointed as SNIA South Asia & SNIA Malaysia non-voting representation to SNIA Technical Council. I was previously the Chairman of SNIA Malaysia until Dec 2012. I have recently joined Hitachi Data Systems as an Industry Manager for Oil & Gas in Asia Pacific. The position does not require me to be super-technical (which is what I love) but it helps develop another facet of my career, which is building communities and partnership. I think this is crucial and more wholesome than just being technical alone. Given my present position, I am not obligated to write about HDS and its technology, but I am indeed subjected to Social Media Guidelines of the company. Therefore, I would like to make a disclaimer that what I write is my personal opinion, and mine alone. Therefore, I am responsible for what I say and write and this statement indemnify my employer from any damages.

    Jay,

    Books in Malaysia, I believe, is still using the USD1=MYR3.90 exchange rate, which I think is ridiculous. I have been buying from Amazon ever since the exchange has been going down early this year. There are many times that I have saved more than RM50-100 for one book, even with the shipping and handling.

    I have been boycotting Borders (their US stores have filed for Chapter 11 a few months ago) because they are usually more expensive than the others. MPH IT book selection sucks and lousy customer service. Popular treats its customers like criminals, even kids. The only decent bookstore for me is Kinokuniya.

    So, that’s my gruff with the local bookstores. Sad

    Jay, it’s in KLCC. I don’t really like KLCC very much coz I have been there for all my NetApp years and while in RDM, I frequently visit O&G customers over there. I just like the bookstore, that’s all :-D
