A few months back, my colleagues made several predictions for technologies in 2019—everything from artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to hybrid cloud, blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT). Through those discussions, as well as insight from our own internal experts, they compiled predictions for the new year across a range of topics.
The way we think about Smart Cities will undergo a major re-think in 2019. As smartphones reach peak saturation and the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes a normal part of our lives, we expect a long overdue refocus from the technology to the people it helps.
Risk and compliance management: Modernizing the cloud to address the realities of security and compliance
Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data, Augmented Reality, IoT, 5G – some of the current buzzwords and trends in the industry. It’s “what all the cool kids” are talking about. Every time I meet with partners around the world, these are the topics they want to talk about.
Retail is an innovation game. But resources are limiting, and the need for ROI is constant. How does digital set the agenda for a CIO and what are their main concerns? And more specifically, how does the merging of LoB and IT priorities lend itself to the evolving priorities of a retail CIO today?
For starters, a recent study from i-scoop.
Why edge computing is imperative in 5G networks
Previously, we looked at how service providers can make 5G a profitable business. A key part of this is also dependent upon service providers delivering distributed compute power as part of the 5G network itself by hosting thousands of mini data centers at the edge.
The networking field is changing fast. This year, several emerging technologies will fundamentally impact how businesses and their employees connect. The good news is that each technology also represents a solid opportunity to improve some aspect of how a company runs – from network efficiency all the way up to business models.
In 2018, the buzz in business was all about digital transformation technologies—everything from artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to hybrid cloud, blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT). That buzz won’t cease in 2019—but the chatter around these technologies may become more refined, with less of a focus on what the technologies are and more on how they will be applied to have the most impact on business.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) promises transformational opportunities. Yet the open, standards-based internet technologies that enable the IIoT and economic innovation also present an array of complex challenges to critical infrastructure providers.
The holiday season brings songs and stories about Santa Clause with his sleigh full of toys which he delivers around the world to good boys and girls. Magic may not be able to make digital transformation happen, but Santa…Santa runs on magic (along with milk and cookies and lots of imagination).
Should Santa’s magic run a bit low, he and his team could turn to IoT technologies to support many of the use cases needed to deliver millions of packages in one around-the-planet journey.
More cameras, more sensors, more intelligence―today’s advanced video surveillance systems do more than ever before to protect people and property, with applications far beyond perimeter monitoring and access control.
However, as a recent IDC white paper points out, putting new surveillance technologies to work quickly gets complex.
