Given the need for speed in a rapidly changing industry, I predict it won’t be long before collaboration through open ecosystems is the only route to innovation for any type of enterprise technology, writes Bradley McCredie, an IBM Fellow, vice president of IBM Power Systems Development and president of the OpenPOWER Foundation.
IBM Moore’s Law, which holds that processor advancement is derived from transistor scaling, is commonly believed to be dying as semiconductor design bumps up against the limits of physics. It’s debatable whether this is indeed true, but one thing is certain: Major computing shifts such as big data and cloud are placing heavy new demands on computing…

We can refuse to participate in the Data Games -- opting out is one option, and not a bad one. But I’m willing to open up to Facebook and friends for further discussion, writes Rafael Laguna, co-founder and CEO of OX.
It’s commonly accepted that China is the largest nation on Earth by population, with more than 1.36 billion residents. But when today’s giants of Silicon Valley have as much ownership and control over our daily lives as traditional national governments do, it’s time to think more broadly in how we define a state. So if…

Symphony Teleca's Sanjay Dhawan writes that through the journey, there has remained a constant that shaped the future of the connected experience ecosystem as we know it today: Software.
A walked through the floors of CES 2015, they immediately suggested that the trends for the year ahead are steeply inclined towards the Internet of Things (IoT). With Gartner predicting that the IoT market is poised to reach nearly $24 billion by 2020, companies are looking at rapidly capitalizing on the market with a range…

With missed opportunities to focus on a more robust app ecosystem, include more compelling cloud computing features, or even offer a more drastic re-imagination (like the groundbreaking Neptune Duo has,) the Apple Watch leaves much to be desired from a company that has made redefining a category seem commonplace, writes Tayven James.
The hype surrounding the Apple Watch is swelling, as has become the norm with any new product from Apple. And why shouldn’t it be? In addition to providing Apple Watch with an extremely prolonged buildup (the Apple Watch was announced over five months ago,) Apple has just closed the highest grossing quarter for any company,…

As organizations continue to seek ways to decouple data from devices, we’ll see an increasing number of organizations not only concerned about the size of data, but how they’re using it. The key to this is software-based storage technology will be how they extracting insights from it, writes Vincent (Yu-Cheng) Hsu, an IBM Fellow and the CTO for IBM Storage system. Follow the conversation at #softwaredefined
Today’s digital world is making yesterday’s data storage models obsolete. According to International Data Group, unstructured data is growing at a rate of 62 percent per year. When coupled with increased use of analytics, companies are finding new ways to maximize insights for things such as employee hiring and engagement, customer experience and product development…

In order to empower everyone to build apps, we need to focus on bringing greater abstraction and automation to the app development process. We need to remove code — and all its complexity — from the equation. My advice? Don’t teach everyone how to code. Teach them how to identify and understand needs, as well as how to visually express logic, writes Mendix's Gottfried Sehringer.
It’s hard to read a blog or news site these days without stumbling across an article about why everyone should learn to code. It’s a rallying cry that’s given rise to organizations like Codecademy and Code.org. It’s even cracked the national political agenda, with ex US House Majority Leader Eric Cantor having declared that “becoming literate…

Threat prevention is an ongoing process; it’s not something that you do once and walk away. So stop spending time and money trying to make users security experts and start spending on improving your threat prevention program, writes Rick Howard, Chief Security Officer for Palo Alto Networks.
infocux/Flickr Hardly a week goes by without media reports of a well-known business or agency having its data center hacked and sensitive information being stolen or damaged. When news of these attacks breaks, the cybersecurity industry does a lot of hand wringing and pontificating over what is to be done about the increasing frequency and…

Reporters have written about the influence of Star Trek on Google’s technological vision. One of those visions is ubiquitous access to information on a planetary if not galactic scale, writes John Laprise, an Assistant Professor in Residence at Northwestern University in Qatar.
The current debate in the United States and around the world over network neutrality pits architecturists against contentists. In many places, the emerging battle lines have coalesced around telecommunications companies on the one hand and Internet companies on the other. Established telecommunications companies are committing their reserves of financial, legal and political power to stop the…

If you’re looking for a way to gauge how the 3D printing market will evolve, look no further than the dawn of two other revolutionizing technologies – the desktop printing market and the VHS standard. And be prepared for a decidedly off-color story, writes Josh Greenbaum, Principal at Enterprise Applications Consulting.
If you’re looking for a way to gauge how the 3D printing market will evolve, look no further than the dawn of two other revolutionizing technologies – the desktop printing market and the VHS standard. And be prepared for a decidedly off-color story. While many of us have fond memories of watching a favorite movie…

Social media feels good. The shares. The likes. The metrics. They’re fun, they’re sexy. Why would anyone want to give that up? Yet ask yourself, what would it really mean for your company if you went ghost on the social channels? What else could you do with all of that time, energy and money? Nobody’s asking you to go it alone; however, maybe it’s time to rethink exactly what “social” means for you and your business, writes Megan Totka, Chief Editor for ChamberofCommerce.com.
Whether you’re every other freelance blogger at your local coffee shop (latte in hand) or a small business owner struggling to keep the lights on, it’s certainly a question worth pondering. The answer to such a question, relayed to us by a faceless sea of “gurus,” “experts” and tech start-up superstars is a resounding “Of…

Cooperation is an imperative for 2015 and 2016. App developers must deliver apps that instantly cooperate with other applications used by their customers or they are going to seed market share to their competitors and watch customers walk out the door, writes Mark Geene, co-founder and CEO of Cloud Elements.
Over the last 20 years, software has slowly eaten the world. Marc Andreessen pointed out this trend in 2011 and noted that increasingly industries are going to be disrupted by software. Here we sit four years later with an “app” for everything. “There’s an app for that” is leading to the acceleration of fragmented software.…

IoE is shifting the industry, both from a technology standpoint and within the enterprise. It is not just creating more robust and innovative technologies, it is also creating an entirely new field of jobs that have never been seen before. It is opening up doors for even more job development and growth in technology fields in all industries, and is allowing for the cross-pollination of the C-Suite and IT teams, writes Dan T. Pickett, Chairman and CEO of nfrastructure.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is having an enormous impact on business. This phenomenon is completely reinventing the way businesses operate. It is bringing  productivity and competitiveness to higher levels along with opening up many doors to new and exciting opportunities. Companies that are more recently harnessing the power of IoE are excited to realize…
