    Don’t Sleep On New Data Privacy Regulations

    Chalk it up to the Snowden Effect. Although it has been nearly three years since Edward Snowden turned the world on its head by releasing a trove of highly sensitive documents, the ripples of his decision are still being felt broadly. To that end, the European Union recently finalized the text of what looks to be the world’s single most significant — and severe — data privacy… Read More

    Platforms are what make the technology world go ’round. Great platforms create value for technologists everywhere — be it a technology-specific platform like what Google has newly open-sourced through Tensor Flow, a customer-specific platform development environment like Salesforce or a truly horizontal platform like what Amazon offers through AWS.

    Get Small To Get Big Through Microservices

    If we trace a path that starts with Gutenberg’s use of moveable type to Malcom McLean’s invention of the shipping container, we start to recognize a very interesting pattern: Each new layer of abstraction and standardization creates tremendous value out of the resulting increases in scale and efficiency. Today’s digital innovators can trace a similar historical path that… Read More

    Why Cloud Computing Will Shake Up Security

    As the curtain opens on 2016, you can expect massive changes in the security landscape. Technology providers such as firewall vendors, switching vendors and others will fade as new solutions better suited to the cloud computing environment emerge.

    5 Things That Will Disappear In 5 Years

    Just five years ago the world was a very different place. In 2010, the iPad had just made its debut, Kickstarter was introducing a new form of venture capitalism that would change the face of fundraising and Square was letting vendors of any size accept payment with a swipe of a card on a mobile device. And we haven’t looked back. The next five years will no doubt unleash products… Read More

    The Cloud’s Biggest Threat Are Data Sovereignty Laws

    The beauty of the cloud is the promise of simplification and standardization — without regard to physical or geographic boundaries. It’s this “any time, any place, any device” flexibility that is driving rapid adoption.
