About three years ago I wrote a blog post about my connected home, envisioning that we soon would have all our devices in the cloud. But to date, we are still pretty much in the same world as then. We have competing standards resulting in siloed solutions, with little or no cross-standard solutions.
Have you ever felt like you are living life in the fast lane and slow lane at the exact same time? It seems to me that my short perspective is getting ever shorter and that makes the fact that my longer perspective isn’t moving increasingly hard to adjust for.
Today 4G connectivity comes at a premium, whereas WiFi is free. But that could all change, and 5G just might be the new WiFi…
“The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the most discoveries, is not ‘Eureka!’ (I found it!) but ‘That’s funny…’” ― Isaac Asimov Continue reading
As a long-time football fan, I was very much looking forward to this year’s global football tournament in Russia. The great thing about football is that many of us relate to it and have personal experiences attached to it. While the basic game has remained pretty constant from my early experiences as a football fan, much of the experience for fans has changed over the years – with the key drivers for this being pervasive connectivity and new devices.
Assuming your organization has a creative mindset, and beyond the possible implications of emerging technologies, a key challenge lies in pinning down what is required from an organizational perspective for innovation to take place. To a large extent, this is the key challenge in the business world today and something that many organizations, especially larger ones, struggle with. What are the prerequisites for making innovation happen?

Have you ever driven a self-driving vehicle? Or perhaps an even better question would be: can you even drive something that is self-driving and automated? Maybe we soon will have to change the way we talk about self-driving, as well as change our entire approach to travelling and transportation. I mean: if a car is entirely self-sufficient – would you even need to have a driver’s license? Continue reading
Over the last decade, businesses have been centralizing their IT infrastructure in the cloud. Now, the Internet of Things (IoT) is shedding light on some limitations of this approach – lack of storage, high latency, static environment, etc. – resulting in a shift from the centralized model to distributed model and to the edge for optimal user experience and cost performance.

During the rise of technology trends like software-defined infrastructure and hardware disaggregation in 2015, I started looking into what could be the next step in the evolution of datacenter hardware, trying to envision where we would be around 2020. Continue reading
