Today's topics include big data news from ADP, new cloud computing servers and software from IBM, continued support from Citrix for its virtual application platform and the availability of HP's Sprout from HP resellers.

Automatic Data Processing—better known as ADP, the international payroll service—entered the big data platform business on May 12.

ADP's vast big data archive from U.S. companies and their employees ranks second only to the employee records of the U.S. government. So ADP has started to use all that data for a new business wing—a big data cloud service.

ADP DataCloud is designed to put day-to-day analytics capabilities in the hands of line-of-business accounting and HR staff, enabling them to obtain insights from the workforce data already embedded in their individual ADP human capital management systems.

At its IBM Edge 2015 conference in Las Vegas, IBM announced new servers, storage software and cloud computing systems. IBM also introduced flexible software licensing of its middleware to help clients speed up their adoption of hybrid cloud environments.

The company announced the IBM Power System E850, a four-socket system with flexible capacity and up to 70 percent guaranteed utilization.

Citrix CEO Mark Templeton stood before attendees at the Citrix Synergy conference in Orlando on May 12 to reiterate his company's support for its virtual application platform, XenApp.

In a keynote centered on the theme of mobile-enabled workspaces that promotes productivity on any device, Citrix is offering XenApp 6.5 customers a lifeline, Templeton announced. He added that the company plans to extend the lifecycle of XenApp 6.5 until 2017.

Hewlett-Packard will begin selling its Sprout immersive computing platform through the commercial channel in the United States later this month, with officials noting that the system is getting interest from both commercial organizations and educational institutions.

The system has already been available in such retail outlets as Best Buy and Microsoft Stores. Now U.S. businesses can get the Sprout system from their HP resellers, the company said May 12.

Sprout is an all-in-one PC that brings together a scanner, depth sensor, high-resolution camera and projector to create a single device that is designed to enable users to merge physical objects into a digital workspace.
