RECENT TECHNOLOGY QUOTE:

Paul Rubell recently stated, “Facebook’s IPO filing highlights the resurgence in technology’s profound effect upon social change and human ingenuity. The investing community has once again jumped on the bandwagon of technology companies as a way to reap financial rewards. This is not, however, a return to the hey-day of the dotcom era of the 1990s.

“Digital media and technology companies of the 2010’s generally have a firmer basis in real products, bon-a-fide services and sound ways to earn revenue. Facebook, for instance, grossed $2 billion in revenues during 2011. Although, its valuation of $100 billion is fantastically high, the amount bears a direct correlation to the way Wall Street and Facebook’s user community hold this company, and the entire concept of digital communications, in high regard,” said Rubell.

“Entire waves of political change, such as Occupy Wall Street and the “Arab Spring” revolts have shown how one person, acting alone can effect broad political economic and other changes. Prior to the world-wide web in the 1990’s, it was nearly impossible for anyone to be heard instantly round the world, but today Facebook, and companies like it, are able to facilitate the immediacy of personal interaction. Thus the filing of Facebook’s IPO is an arbiter of the world we live in and a harbinger of great advances in technology yet to come.”

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
