Oracle Corporation Research Report
Oracle has explained its plans to allocate $72 billion for the cloud computing market. One way that the company plans to make use of this budget is to add a new edge to their infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud computing offerings. The company will install high-end hardware called "engineering systems" loaded with Oracle software in a customer's data center. The customer will pay a monthly fee to rent them, and they will be stored in a "private cloud" that involves both hardware and software.
The inclusion of hardware in their IaaS offerings was made to boost the use of the company's hardware as well as to increase the number cloud subscribers. Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said that he expects hardware sales to turn positive in the fourth quarter, with products like the company's Exa-series and Sparc engineered systems being offered in the new IaaS system.

Adobe Systems Incorporated Research Report
Adobe is also incorporating new features to its Creative Cloud service. Incorporating Behance into the Creative Cloud service will lead to an increase in subscribers by 1 million. This will allow the company to earn $685 every year from subscriptions. To boost its sales higher, the company is also producing tablet and smartphone catalog apps to engage mobile-based shoppers. Adobe had a strong fourth quarter due to cloud subscriptions, and the company is planning to continue this momentum. The software producer is planning to transition to a complete cloud delivery model within four years. By 2015, the company expects to have approximately 4 million Creative Cloud subscribers.

GlaxoSmithKline plc. Research Report
A cure for Alzheimer's is the main focus of GlaxoSmithKline. A research team in Universite Laval in Canada has discerned a way to encourage the brains defense system to naturally combat Alzheimer's. The breakthrough in this is that the cure itself is already available through GlaxoSmithKline's portfolio as it is an active ingredient in the healthcare company's records for years. Research has tested that after injecting mice that show Alzheimer's symptoms, within months' time the mice have shown astonishing improvement in their ability in terms of comprehension and learning. Discoveries like this will propagate the company's record in breakthrough medicine, and its contribution to curing the 6th probable cause of death in the United States.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
