The Rock and the Hard Place: Parallel and Agile Development — Part 1: Parallel Development
In our fast-paced, modern, development environments, the old data processing methodologies are disappearing. Large, up-front design and development techniques can no longer meet the delivery requirements of today's fast-paced, rapidly changing, user demands and competitive pressures. Like it or not, MultiValue shops need to embrace the concepts of both parallel and agile development.
From the Inside January/February 2012
Big Data has been a hot topic lately. Since it really is not clear what it is, or how to Big Data applies to us, I figured I'd add my two cents on the topic.
Business Tech: Prediction 2012
2011 was an interesting year. We saw technical innovation, new services, and a number of changes in the overall landscape. So what will 2012 bring? Nobody can know the future, but here are the best guesses of one of our contributing authors.
jQuery Mobile: Making Mobile with Minimal Misery
The greenscreen went the way of the dodo bird. Desktop GUIs may be sufficient for in-house employees, but they do not provide ready access for your customers.

Clif Notes: Who Cares if MultiValue Survives?
Before we explore this question, let me get one thing out of the way — the obligatory New Year's resolution. I will not write controversial column titles. There. Done. And all in keeping with my tradition of starting the new year off with a burst of productivity by simultaneously making and breaking my New Year's resolution. With that out of the way, let's return to the question. Who cares if MultiValue survives? I don't. Oh my, I can already hear the scraping of sharpening stones on steel, the squawking of fowl, and smell the odor of tar being heated in the pots. I should hasten to explain myself before it becomes necessary for me to go on Amazon.com and place an order for large quantities of engine degreaser and burn ointment.
