  • State may respond to program shortfalls caused by federal shutdown

    first_imgDES MOINES — State officials say if there is a prolonged shutdown of federal agencies like the USDA, they may shore up state programs run in conjunction with the federal government.“I’m proud of the fact we do things differently here in Iowa. I think Iowans don’t like what they see happening out in Washington, D.C.,” Governor Kim Reynolds said Thursday at a statehouse forum organized by The Associated Press. “…They like the fact that, for the most part, two parties are able to work together to put Iowans first.”Reynolds told reporters her budget director checks every day with state agencies that may be impacted by a federal government shutdown to ensure “essential services” are provided to Iowans.“Right now, we’re in pretty good shape. We’re hoping that they can get something done,” Reynolds said. “Who knows, right now, what that looks like, but we’ll continue to monitor it.”Legislative leaders say there’s no need for action now, but they’ll re-evaluate if the the federal government shutdown lasts for months. House Speaker Linda Upmeyer, a Republican from Clear Lake, said the election’s over, it’s time to get to work.“I don’t want to speculate too far into the future,” Upmeyer told reporters at Thursday’s AP forum, “but we need people to get busy and solve their problems, find solutions, compromise and get this job done.”House Democratic Leader Todd Prichard of Charles City said if the state eventually has to “fill voids” in federal spending, that may create budget headaches.“I think the situation in DC shows the importance of Iowa having sound budgeting principles and practices and being in a position where we can deal with the unexpected,” Prichard told reporters at the AP forum,” whether it’s a federal shutdown (or) whether it’s a sudden downturn in the economy.”The food stamp program is a joint state-federal program, run through the USDA, which is shuttered. The U-S Ag Secretary has said there’s enough money to provide benefits in February if the shutdown continues. Janet Petersen of Des Moines, the Democratic leader in the Iowa Senate, said if the shutdown lasts longer, state officials need to act.“I can’t imagine that we wouldn’t assure Iowans that we will make sure they can put food on the table if things in DC are still going horribly wrong,” Petersen said during the AP forum. “Iowans deserve to know that they’ll be able to feed their families.”The State of Iowa ended the last budgeting year with a surplus. Estimates indicate there’s a roughly $200 million  cushion in the current year’s state budget. That’s in addition to the state’s economic emergency funds.last_img read more

  • Turba’s McGregor win is the perfect birthday present

  • Amazon Web Services Hits $3.8 Billion Revenue – But Can It Capture The Enterprise?

    first_imgIt took Amazon Web Services (AWS) eight years to hit $650 million in revenue, according to Citigroup in 2010.  Just three years later, Macquarie Capital analyst Ben Schachter estimates that AWS will top $3.8 billion in 2013 revenue, up from $2.1 billion in 2012 (estimated), valuing the AWS business at $19 billion.  It’s a lot of money, and it underlines Amazon’s increasingly dominant role in cloud computing, and the rising risks associated with enterprises putting all their eggs in the AWS basket.The Enterprise Is Cloud Computing’s Next Big TargetUltimately, it’s the enterprise that will crown a winner in cloud computing. And as Macquarie Capital posits, Amazon is gearing up to take on the enterprise:We highlight that much of AWS‟s past growth has come from SMBs [small and medium-sized businesses] and start-ups. While these will continue to drive growth globally, in 2013 we expect a more concerted effort to focus on growing the AWS business at large enterprises. Importantly, the broadening platform offered by AWS is helping to drive adoption in larger enterprises (moving up the tech stack, with RedShift and other recent product launches). Additionally, we think emerging markets offer a significant opportunity, as many enterprises in these regions will likely bypass traditional technology infrastructure and go straight to the cloud.Not that winning the enterprise will come easily. Outside the SMB market, Amazon has real challenges.  One is reliability, which has Amazon scrambling to root out “unknown unknowns” before they bring down AWS. In this the company largely has to go it alone. Even if Amazon were to open source the infrastructure it uses to run its operations, as Facebook has, it’s unlikely that the company would derive much benefit. Amazon runs at a scale that few developers have experienced, rendering its “many eyeballs” just that: eyeballs that don’t necessarily know what they’re looking at, and impotent to dig in and help make AWS more resilient. Sure, there are engineers at Google and other Web giants who can appreciate Amazon’s scale (450,000 Linux servers and counting), but what’s their incentive to help by contributing code or insight?It’s unlikely that the enterprise is going to toss out AWS any time soon, however. It’s just too convenient, and relatively cheap. Amazon is happy to run at ridiculously low margins, according to its CEO Jeff Bezos in a Harvard Business Review interview, because the company believes the potential of the Internet is still largely untapped. In Bezos’ mind, we’re in the midst of a land grab for the future of retail and computing. Building and owning a market is more important than collecting profits from it. At least for now.  Amazon Is A Tough CompetitorThis translates into serious customer benefit. As for competitors, well, Businessweek‘s Brad Stone calls the company’s approach “the Bermuda triangle of business.”  Amazon also has the benefit of having been first to market, with its interface (API) now dominant among developers. In responding to a podcast question about why his company chose to embrace the Amazon API instead of creating its own, Basho CTO Justin Sheehy highlights the developer inertia cutting against API innovation:I’ve never heard a single customer say, “Don’t give me the Amazon API.”… If everyone were starting to build these things at the same time then innovating at the API might be interesting. When the majority of users are already using the same one, however, you don’t pick it because it’s the best. You pick it because it’s the API that gives you the least friction to people adopting your product.None of which is to suggest that AWS has already won the battle for the enterprise. There are plenty of excellent alternatives, particularly for enterprise workloads, in Google Cloud Platform, VMware CloudFoundry, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace and others, not to mention private/hybrid cloud solutions from Citrix (Apache Cloudstack), Eucalyptus, OpenNebula and more. Many of these have technical and other advantages, as well as price discounts in some cases. But right now it is Amazon that is setting the terms, and with its aggressive pricing and product roll-outs, it’s making those terms as onerous as possible for competitors to surpass.Ultimately, it’s a race to see whether competitors can improve their ease-of-use and cost structure faster than Amazon can improve its reliability and security. Either way, customers win.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.
