Network of Ccomputing – distributed computing to support IoT – The Full Spectrum

The Internet of Things (IoT) is closing in fast, it has been predicted there will be 26 billion units installed by 2020, generating $300bn in revenue. These are numbers that absolutely cannot be ignored and the anticipation for this technology boom is huge. A predicted 4.5 million developers will drive this prolific growth in IoT in the next six years and they are all in need of the right technology to support them. But, without putting too fine a point on it, developers without the infrastructure to develop are useless.

The challenges facing the mass adoption of IoT technology are significant, but not insurmountable. In order for the IoT to be a success from an infrastructure perspective, there are three major ingredients: infinitely scalable computing power, the network fibre to support the rapid growth in data traffic and the ability to control where your data is stored.

Why Leaders Need Feedback Too

No matter how well senior executives are performing at work, they unconsciously tend to fear feedback, and can often avoid, delay or dread their annual performance review. While many are trained in the art of giving feedback to their teams, how do they cope when the tables are turned on them?

Statistics.com – Terminology in Data Analytics

As data continue to grow at a faster rate than either population or economic activity, so do organizations’ efforts to deal with the data deluge, and use it to capture value.  And so do the methods used to analyze data, which creates an expanding set of terms (including some buzzwords) used to describe these methods.

This is a field in flux, and different people may have different conceptions of what terms mean.  Comments on this page and its “definitions” are welcome.  Since many of these terms are subsets of others, or overlapping, the clearest approach is to start with the more specific terms and move to the more general.

Let’s face it, most of us are addicted technology futurists. Who doesn’t enjoy speculating about what technology marvels will be commonplace in the coming decades? Will it be 3D printing? Artificial intelligence?

 

“Singularity”? All are buzzwords of the emerging technology future.

But what about leadership? If we don’t get leadership right, all the bright shiny objects in the future will dangle beyond our reach. Will the tenets of great leadership change over time, and if so, what will leadership look like twenty years from now?

Creating A Culture Of Engagement

“Engagement comes from leaders. People look to leadership to set the tone and expectations,” says Sangeeta Agrawal, a Gallup consultant. “If executives don’t set the stage and practice what they preach about engagement, it’ll be harder for others to follow”… The numbers support this. Managers who are directly supervised by highly engaged executive teams are 39% more likely to be engaged than managers who are supervised by executive teams with below-average engagement.”

How to Get Out of Lose-Lose Leadership Dilemmas

TRAPPED IN A LOSE-LOSE LEADERSHIP DILEMMA

You’ve got a tough choice. The performance feedback is in and the message is clear: you’ve been micro-managing your people. They complain about feeling suffocated by the systems and processes you’ve put in place to ensure consistent, quality work. It’s the one blemish on your otherwise positive annual review. You’re told it’s the only thing standing between you and your much-coveted promotion to area manager. But this is one of your biggest strengths. You’ve always been proud to say, “Predictable processes lead to predictable results.” You’re told however that too much of a good thing has the same result as too little of it: ineffective leadership. You need to become more flexible.
