What happened to my cloud connected home?

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.

Software robotics and drones – from design to concept

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.

Step inside the future factory

Ever since the industrial revolution and resulting shift to new manufacturing processes, manufacturers have evolved their industrial production systems to increase productivity, gain efficiencies and grow profits.

5G VR – a canary in the telecom coal mine?

Distributed cloud attempt No. 2 : Edison failed 1,000 times too

This is the second post in a series discussing 5G and what comes next.

Why the future of telecom will not be its past

When we first built telecom networks it was to enable voice over long distances. And we became a “thing”. An industry. An organisation. Organisations always come into existence to solve a need. Successful organisations then tend to grow very quickly. Then in many cases organisations forget why they exist and rather focus on self maintenance.
And […]

How to keep up with the evolution of computing at the edge

Editor’s note:  Today we are featuring a guest post from PubNub, a company featured at our 2nd Annual Startup Day at our Silicon Valley Experience Center.

There are two mega-trends driving the need for new computing infrastructure beyond the centralized datacenter, commonly referred to as “edge computing”.  
The first is the explosion […]
