IBM and Adobe announced a new partnership following IBM’s surprise summer Cloud capabilities, which you can read about here. I follow IBM’s on-prem to public cloud approach closely, and I think IBM and Adobe’s partnership is an intelligent move on both sides. Although I first wrote off this new partnership as another strategic alignment, I think it could be disruptive in the digital transformation of enterprises.
Two weeks ago, Amazon held its virtual Alexa Live 2020 event for Alexa voice developers, device makers, and business leaders alike—anyone in the business of leveraging Amazon’s highly popular smart assistant. Alexa boast a develop community of approximately 700,000, many whom look to this event for a roadmap to help guide their efforts in the coming year.
Despite IT spending’s downturn, spending on remote working apps and platforms is projected to reach double-digit growth rates this year. Gartner’s latest forecasts reflect how IT spending for remote working is a growth catalyst for public cloud services, predicted to grow 19% this year. Cloud-based telephony and messaging and cloud-based conferencing are also predicted to grow 8.9% and 24.3% respectively.
One of the most often overlooked cybersecurity attack vectors, and one of the biggest threats is application-programming interface (API) security. According to the security giant, Akamai, over 80% of all Content Delivery Network (CDN) Internet traffic is API traffic.
The story thus far: the Covid-19 pandemic continues to tear through the United States rendering its working-class either unemployed in record numbers or relegated to their newly formed home offices in the basement.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is growing fast, upwards and outwards, out of its adolescence. We have moved beyond the cats and dogs phase of Machine Learning (ML) where two furry animals, each with four legs, teeth and claws might be mistaken for each other.
Google Cloud Goes More Vertical, Adds Security And Trust Capabilities To Its Digital Transformation Toolbox
A lot has changed since last year’s in-person Google Cloud Next. For the first time, Google Cloud Next is “in the cloud” on recorded video led by Google and Alphabet Inc CEO Sundar Pichai and Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian.
Cybersecurity is now a war of attrition. Companies face new threats every day, and it is impossible to keep up with the frequency and volume of vulnerabilities that profoundly impact a company’s IT hygiene.
Ask any IT professional or tech industry observer to name the top trends they see, and you would inevitably hear many variations on the theme of cloud computing. In particular, the phrase multi-cloud computing is likely to pop up.
A decade ago, edge computing meant delivering static content through a distributed content delivery network (CDN). Akamai, Limelight Networks, Cloudflare and Fastly are some of the examples of CDN services.
In the software industry, open-source has become a way of life. If not quite the de facto choice for enterprise software at every level (proprietary vendor-closed software isn’t going away any time this decade), then we can at least say that we’re seeing major organizations embrace a high degree of open technology platforms, products and protocols at many levels throughout their IT stacks.
Bottom Line: Monitoring remote locations in real-time at a low operating cost combined with advances in AI and machine learning to interpret data are why cloud platforms are defining the future of SCADA and industrial monitoring.
The United States government has so efficiently botched its response to this Covid-19 pandemic that it seems like a coordinated effort to keep us working at home forever (those of us who still have some level of employment at least).
