In some verticals, 50 to 60 per cent of core processes still run on mainframe systems.
Despite all of the product’s problems, I still wish Google had decided to release Google Glass to the general public (the $1,500 Explorer edition doesn’t count).

The OpenStack Foundation claims the open source community has a collective problem with product integration, making it difficult for users to realise the full potential of their IT investments.
