The march of the enterprise software IPOs continues, with not one but two companies debuting on New York stock exchanges today. Data visualization software company Tableau Software, going by the symbol "DATA," will start trading tomorrow on the New York Stock Exchange at $31 per share, up from earlier today when the company said it would trade in the $28 to $30 range. This is the final episode of my show on TCTV, "In The Studio." The final guest is a good friend, Parth Shah (no relation), an engineer with VMware, and before that, at Yahoo! Parth combines the precision of CMU CS graduate's take on web development with a hacker mentality, and has the rare skill of being able to explain some of the most complex enterprise IT concepts to those who don't have as much context -- such as me! In this short conversation, Parth shares with us his work at VMware and his generalized thoughts on how the enterprise stack is being disrupted today. BitPay, the startup with ambitions to become the PayPal of the bitcoin world, is today announcing that it has raised another $2 million. BonitaSoft, a provider of an open source business process management (BPM) solution, has raised a $13 million Series C round led by the FSN PME Fund, a French government initiative to invest in technology companies to help them scale globally. AirWatch, the startup that helps businesses manage security and more on employees' mobile devices, is today announcing that it has raised another $25 million, led by Accel with participation also from Insight Venture Partners. Google’s stock price came close to its 52-week high on the first day of Google I/O today, hitting $915 per share at close. Time for a back-up plan for your Twitter back-up plan. Backupify -- the cloud-based backup, search and restore provider for online services -- is shutting down its TweetBackup service for Twitter users. Google announced today at I/O that it made Google Cloud Platform generally available, marking a milestone for the cloud community and the real arrival of a giant to contend with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and its pay-as-you-go pricing. We are more than two hours into the Google I/O keynote, the kickoff to a three-day event with 171 sessions.
