    Monday, October 12, 8:45am
    The Edge is the Center: The need to turn organizations, architectures and our own thinking inside-out
    Ray Ozzie, Groove

    The evolution of computing & communications as driven by the requirements of the enterprise data center has served us well for decades. The personal computing revolution, in particular, has advanced rapidly and directly due to enterprise systems R&D. But "the center" as a source of new requirements and capabilities is falling behind in terms of broad relevance. The "cheap revolution" - the inexpensive ubiquity of computing & communications - has turned the tables,causing the industry to suddenly be focused on understanding the multi-faceted "personal systems" requirements of individuals in their homes and work lives. And the progressive, technology-catalyzed decentralization of business and society is transforming core requirements for systems design, architecture and middleware toward "jointness", "agility", and "fast solutions".

    Ray Ozzie will talk about his relevant experiences in the design and architecture of two decentralized collaborative application platforms - one based on decentralized peer servers (Lotus Notes), and one based on decentralized peer clients (Groove). He'll discuss the requirements that led him to create these platforms, what he found the need to build to address these requirements, and what he believes middleware and systems designers might take away from these experiences.
