ITEXPO will help Explain the Coming Cloud Upgrade

January 16, 2015


The cloud is changing how technology is bought, sold and used. The very economics of business have shifted as a result. When Yahoo! launched, it needed boatloads of multimillion dollar Sun Microsystems servers just to have the computing capacity needed to deliver services. Now, companies can just pay as they go and purchase as much cloud as they need to get a job done.

The Data Interconnections Waze and others need

January 13, 2015


Let me start by saying that there are exceptions to what I am about to discuss below but generally speaking, inter-app connectivity is lacking. The real power of technology is harnessing big data from multiple sources – the so called mashup. We have come a long way and there is so much potential to leverage technology – to further improve the world. Here are some of my thoughts on cooperation I’d like to see:

MatrixCloud: It's Time To Re-evaluate Cloud Deployment and Management

December 29, 2014

It’s exciting to see that cloud is being embraced by so many. From small businesses to the largest, cloud computing solutions are eagerly being rolled out for CRM, telephony, UC, accounting, storage and anything else you can think of. While the benefits of the tech are clear, what we need to worry about now is management of these cloud solutions.

In fact, we should be aware of the trend we see in cloud as it follows similar ones in telecom.

Shocking Bang & Olufsen Profit Warning

December 24, 2014

Generally, I don’t write about profit warnings but the latest one from B&O caught me by surprise because the luxury market is booming and the consumer electronics market is doing amazingly well yet Bang & Olufsen is not seeing sales explode. As I child I used to ride my bike to the nearby B&O store to marvel at the products which were beyond the reach of a 11-year-old. The company was decades ahead of the competition in terms of design.

They did such a good job in-fact, Steve Jobs cited them as an inspiration. Apple’s success in-turn led to the consumer electronics world taking design very seriously.

Well, I have good news. I think we now know who is right.

Really, this is the leading-edge of the market. Is it hype?
