The next wave of computing is the intelligent edge and intelligent cloud

Used with Permission from Microsoft Next Blog: An Article By, Kevin Scott

Take a look around your house, office or even the next store you visit, and you’ll start to notice that internet-connected devices are bringing us closer than ever before to a world of ubiquitous computing and ambient intelligence. As these Internet of Things (IoT) devices become increasingly commonplace, people will start to expect computing to be more integrated into their lives, to anticipate, understand and seamlessly meet their needs. They will expect software to respond to spoken natural language, gestures, body language and emotion, and for it to understand the physical world and the rich context surrounding each user as they navigate their personal life, their work and the world around them.

Top 10 Emerging Technology Trends

An Article By, David Tan, Chief Technology Officer

I had the honor of speaking at an event earlier this month put on by CompTIA, the largest technology industry trade association in the world.  The session I spoke at was about trends in emerging technology, and what IT companies should be looking for and talking to their clients about.  The session grew out of a new CompTIA community around emerging technology, which I serve on the executive council for.  I’m always interested in looking at new technologies and what they mean for business, both mine and my customers.  This group is a great outlet for me to collaborate with others and gain an even deeper understanding of what we need to be thinking about down the line.

Microsoft Brings the Power to Your Data

An Article By, David Tan, Chief Technology Officer

In the last 24 months or so, Microsoft has released dozens of new applications.  Many of them targeted specifically to users of Office 365.  I’ll guarantee they have programs you have never heard of.  Sway, Flow, Teams, Planner?  Any of those ring a bell?  They are all examples of new point applications Microsoft is churning out to help make their cloud office offerings infinitely more valuable.  I could spend an entire article talking about each of them, but I won’t.  Maybe next time I’m looking for something to write about!  What I do want to talk about is probably my favorite application Microsoft has released in this flurry of innovation – Power BI.

Why do you need to care about GDPR?

An Article By, David Tan, Chief Technology Officer

If you didn’t know it was coming and weren’t fully aware of the impact and implications of the new rules that went into effect at the end of May, you were probably overwhelmed by the sheer volume of emails you got from every company you ever did business with electronically, outlining their new policies and procedures around the protection of your data. That onslaught was basically every major company in the world scurrying to comply with a new set of rules and regulations known as GDPR. While all the large companies we deal with were very clearly affected, there is ample reason why you need to know about, understand, and potentially plan for these rules regardless of the size and location of your business. Hopefully this article will help you understand exactly why.

Real-time AI: Microsoft announces preview of Project Brainwave

Used with Permission from Microsoft AI Blog: An Article By, Allison Linn

Every day, thousands of gadgets and widgets whish down assembly lines run by the manufacturing solutions provider Jabil, on their way into the hands of customers.

Along the way, an automated optical inspection system scans them for any signs of defects, with a bias toward ensuring that all potential anomalies are detected. It then sends those parts off to be checked manually.

The speed of operations leaves manual inspectors with just seconds to decide if the product is really defective, or not.

That’s where Microsoft’s Project Brainwave could come in. Project Brainwave is a hardware architecture designed to accelerate real-time AI calculations. The Project Brainwave architecture is deployed on a type of computer chip from Intel called a field programmable gate array, or FPGA, to make real-time AI calculations at competitive cost and with the industry’s lowest latency, or lag time. This is based on internal performance measurements and comparisons to other organizations’ publicly posted information.

The New Building Blocks of Business

An Article By, David Tan, Chief Technology Officer

When you hear the expression building blocks, if you’re anything like me, you picture a small pile of children’s toys, usually 3, with the letters A, B, and C on the side.  These are the foundation that form our learning and understanding from a very young age.  Technology and business consist of a series of building blocks as well.  You can’t run a business, be competitive, or even make a profit if you don’t build the proper technical foundation for the business.  So far nothing I’m saying is exactly revolutionary.  What might cause you to change your thinking however, is that I’m here to tell you that those building blocks of business have changed.  We have a whole new set of ABCs to consider if you want to thrive.
