Five Technology Trends That Require Scrutiny

No individual can really track and understand the impact of change in all the emerging technologies like Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing, Social Media, Agile Methodology and Big Data … You can realistically aim to have an in depth understanding of only a small subset. By in depth understanding I mean you know significantly more about the subset than a person who has spent about an hour Googling the topic. Let me talk about the subset that I have been exploring in depth and why. Cloud Computing: How is the cloud value proposition changing over time? Mobile Computing: What are the options to handle multi-platform application development challenge? Social Media: How is Hyper-connectivity changing out life? Agile Methodology: How Agile can co-exist with Outsourcing? Changing Value Proposition of Cloud Computing Cloud computing has high potential to change the way we work ... (more)

Nine Stunning 3D Printed Objects

Cloud Computing for the Health of It

Cloud computing must have been brushing up on its bedside manner. HIPAA requirements now stipulate everyone in the health-care industry must begin migrating patient records and other data to cloud computing. By 2015, all medical professionals with access to patient records must utilize electronic medical and health records (EMR and EHR), or face penalties. A recent study by MarketsandMarkets revealed the health-care cloud computing market, which is only currently about 4% of the industry, is expected to grow to nearly $5.4 billion by 2017. The cloud migration process, however, can be daunting for health-care organizations since they have to move an incredible amount of data, according to an article on Forbes.com. Cloud service providers are now offering a variety of new ways to access information via cloud applications and microsites designed for mobile devices. To ... (more)

A Change in Commerce: Open-Source 3D Manufacturing

In Shelly’s awesome post on 3D printing,he hints at a future where spare parts will live on files and not shelves. It completely upsets our notion of manufacturing, where commodities are tangible objects. Physical would become virtual. The question would then become: open-source or closed-source? What’s the Difference? Open-source software and application-development tools are available to anyone for free over the web. Could open-source CAD/CAM files be the same? (There are already plenty of free designs available online at sites like Thingiverse.com.) As a real-world example, let’s take a look at the bicycle manufacturing industry. It’s an industry that uses the latest materials, manufacturing and design principles and techniques. High-end carbon fiber bicycles today are works of engineering art, the same as Formula 1 cars or MotoGP motorcycles or fighter jets, e... (more)
