Code Compiled: A Short History of Programming - Part 2 By Omed Habib This is the story of software. The initial blog in this series was all about the structural formation of programming languages. We went all the way back to steampunk days to see how the framework for programming grew out of Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine in the 1840s. We ended up with a list of the most active programming languages in use at the moment. Now we’ll take the next logical step to examine what programming has done for enterprises and SMBs. We’ll also trace the effects of shockwaves in the world of databases, communications, and mobility. Technological Change Blindness There’s a strange phenomenon known as change blindness that describes how normal people don’t notice massive, obvious changes in their environment. It can emerge from gradual shifts or very rapid transformations that ar... (more)

Megatrend of #ArtificialIntelligence | @CloudExpo #BigData #AI #ML #DL #IoT

There are seven key megatrends driving the future of enterprise IT. You can remember them all with the helpful mnemonic acronym CAMBRIC, which stands for Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Mobility, Big Data, Robotics, Internet of Things, CyberSecurity. In this post we dive deeper into Artificial Intelligence. Artificial Intelligence is the discipline of thinking machines. The field is growing dramatically with the proliferation of high powered computers into homes and businesses and especially with the growing power of smartphones and other mobile devices. Artificial intelligence software is assisting people in most every discipline. The many functions of AI are considered by many to be threatening many human jobs across multiple industries, but others consider it a great producer of jobs since it will help create entirely new industries and free more human...

The 3 Tsunamis of Digital Transformation - Be Prepared

Change is hard, and many of us procrastinate, make excuses or lag behind. Today, we simply can’t. Digital technologies are no longer “nice-to-have” tools of the business – today they are the business. Digital laggards are already finding their markets disrupted and their abilities to compete overturned. As they desperately try to outrun the Darwinian effect of their slow responses, they are faced with not one but three periods – or ages – of digital transformation to navigate – disruptive transformation, hyper-digital transformation and ubiquitous transformation.  Understanding these three ages, and when they will emerge, is critical for business success.Some may argue digital transformation started 70 years ago with ENIAC, the first commercially available computer, while others argue it started with the Internet. Whenever the starting point actually was, we can a... (more)

Update On The Megatrend of Mobility

Bob Gourley There are seven key megatrends driving the future of enterprise IT. You can remember them all with the helpful mnemonic acronym CAMBRIC, which stands for Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Mobility, Big Data, Robotics, Internet of Things, CyberSecurity. In this post we dive deeper into the trend of Mobility. This is the greatest leap in humanity's ability to stay connected since the advent of spoken word. The only thing that would be better than this always on continuously connected super computer in our pocket would be ESP. This trend is causing irreversible change to all cultures. A snapshot of the trend right now indicates: The trend is providing all humanity with a mobile, connected supercomputer With 100's of sensors and millions of applications which can fuel and support use cases we have yet to begin to imagine User location and its history ...

Update On The Megatrend of Cybersecurity

Bob Gourley There are seven key megatrends driving the future of enterprise IT. You can remember them all with the helpful mnemonic acronym CAMBRIC, which stands for Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Mobility, Big Data, Robotics, Internet of Things, CyberSecurity. In this post we dive deeper into the trend of enhanced Cybersecurity. We can make a prediction with absolute certainty: In the future, cybersecurity will be like watching a rodeo. Sometimes the rider will ride and sometimes the rider will be thrown. We know there will be times when adversaries will surprise even the most well defended organizations. History just makes that totally clear. We can also say this about the future of cybersecurity: When organizations are led by leaders that care they can make a huge impact in mitigating risks. Cybersecurity professionals know how to configure existing te... (more)

Surviving Digital Transformation Fatigue

To paraphrase an old joke, there are four stages of digital transformation: What is digital transformation? We need digital transformation! We need whatever comes next after digital transformation! What is digital transformation? By 2016, most enterprises had successfully navigated their way from #1 to #2, but now that it’s 2017, there’s a good chance #3 is in the offing. After all, digital transformation has been the hot topic for a while now. Will 2017 be the year it becomes passé? And if so, what should we do next? Buzzword Fatigue: It’s Inevitable In times of disruption, buzzwords play an important role. As new technologies, approaches, and priorities spring up, we need a common vocabulary so that we can cogently discuss such innovations. However, it’s easy to overuse or misapply buzzwords. Just like salt in your soup: a pinch may be pleasing, but put in too much an... (more)

2017 IIoT Prediction Series, Part 2: Industrial Apps Outpace Consumer IoT Apps

As 2017 kicks into full gear and a particularly interesting 2016 fades into the rearview mirror, we took a look around the IIoT landscape to see what this year might potentially have in store. We will be unveiling five IIoT-related predictions throughout this week and into next, so stay tuned and let us know what you think! Yesterday, we started our predictions by looking at the potential development of Fog Computing at the Edge and its impact on cybersecurity. IIoT App Development in 2017 In 2016, Industrial IoT app development made headlines as the technology landscape continued to evolve. App developers are becoming increasingly aware of the opportunity to create third-party apps for industrial and critical infrastructure operations. While the demand for Smart Data increases and organizations work to update legacy systems, particularly at edge networks, our next... (more)

2017 IIoT Prediction Series, Part 1: Where the Fog Meets the Edge

As 2017 kicks into full gear and a particularly interesting 2016 fades into the rearview mirror, we took a look around the IIoT landscape to see what this year might potentially have in store. We will be unveiling five IIoT-related predictions throughout this week and into next, so stay tuned and let us know what you think! For a rundown of how our 2016 bold predictions fared, check out the recap we posted last month.  It’s become increasingly difficult to ignore the importance of cybersecurity. From the role it played in the 2016 presidential election to the recent revelation that in 2013, more than one billion Yahoo accounts were breached, cybersecurity is no longer a problem unique to Sci-Fi thrillers. Of course, the two examples mention here are simply the most egregious of recent memory, but they pale in comparison to the threat of a cyberattack on actual inf... (more)

Update On The Megatrend of CloudComputing

Bob Gourley There are seven key MegaTrends driving the future of enterprise IT. You can remember them all with the helpful mnemonic acronym CAMBRIC, which stands for Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Mobility, Big Data, Robotics, Internet of Things, CyberSecurity. In this post we dive deeper into the first of these trends, Cloud Computing. We succinctly describe Cloud Computing as the scalable delivery of computational resources. Models of cloud compute include public clouds, private clouds and blends in between. Architectures are in place now that leverage tiers of clouds that can exist in multiple sizes and locations, including homes, businesses and datacenters. A snapshot of the trend right now indicates: Although it can cost additional resources to embark on a cloud transition effort, in most cases after initial outlays there are significant cost saving...

Updating CTOvision Assessments on Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Mobility, Big Data, Robotics, Internet of Things and Cybersecurity

Bob Gourley One of the enjoyable things about estimating the future is there is always a new consideration. It is a dynamic task that is never done. This is especially true in analyzing the future of enterprise technology, where things are moving incredibly fast. We try to find balance in tracking the future of technology by focusing on the metatrends, those very powerful forces that sweep over us all (whether we want them to or not). Megatrends do not change fast, and the predictions we make there can be made with a degree of certainty supportive of most strategic planning efforts. They might lack precision in timing and can be at times very broad predictions, but are helpful nonetheless. The megatrends we track can be remembered with the helpful mnemonic acronym CAMBRIC, which stands for Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Mobility, Big Data, Robotics, Int... (more)
