REDWOOD CITY, CA, June 12, 2012 - Actian Corporation today announced that Mark Milani has joined as Senior Vice President of the company's Cloud Platform. Milani's experience will help lead the company in developing automated action for businesses and enterprises as they continue to extract real time value through Big Data. This announcement follows the recent hire of Actian's new CTO, Ahmed Ezzat.

Mark Milani joins Actian with over 20 years of engineering experience, having most recently served as Senior Vice President of Services Engineering at Oracle where he led the technology direction for Oracle's Cloud Services products and provided engineering support to Oracle Global Customer Support and Advanced Customer Services.

"These benefits will only come through by implementing a different approach to optimising how businesses extract the value and by putting the capability in the hands of the users. We are building out Actian's technology leadership with the industry's best talent and we are very excited by the endless opportunities."

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
