When the Power Goes Out, Whom Do You Call?

January 26th, 2015

The importance of a stable uninterrupted power system (UPS) is one that should never be downplayed—with a misguided spark, even the shortest of power outages could spell big trouble for the most established structures.

What this situation illustrates is that not only can companies ill afford to leave their IT assets unprotected f[...]

PCs Are Here to Stay—And So Is the Keyboard

January 22nd, 2015

On a number of occasions, I’ve addressed the common refrain that “the PC is dead.” Well, it’s not dead, and the forecasted uptick in shipments combined with cooling growth in the mobile market suggests that, as I predicted, the various devices are finding a mutual balance; no one device handles all situations.

Yet with so much time, effort and money invested in patents—the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued some 300,000 patents total in 2014—the incentive to reevaluate the system is lacking. Many of these patents intersect the computing space; in particular, some 16% of active patents in 2012 governed smartphones, acc[...]

2015 Predictions: Data Science and Hadoop and In-Memory, Oh My!

January 19th, 2015

As we all know, big data is not a new term, nor is it a new reality. In 2014, however, we saw companies start to truly embrace it. In fact, some have so much data that they don’t know what to do with it. Here lies the problem. While new technologies in the space exist, many companies are still having scale, speed and performance issues because they’re using software that was written nearly 30 years ago[...]
