The Rise of Big Data | Foreign Affairs

Everyone knows that the Internet has changed how businesses operate, governments function, and people live. But a new, less visible technological trend is just as transformative: “big data.” Big data starts with the fact that there is a lot more information floating around these days than ever before, and it is being put to extraordinary new uses. Big data is distinct from the Internet, although the Web makes it much easier to collect and share data. Big data is about more than just communication: the idea is that we can learn from a large body of information things that we could not comprehend when we used only smaller amounts.

How HP Could Once Again Dominate Silicon Valley

HP has shown it can innovate — but can those innovations save the company?

 

Throughout Hewlett-Packard’s 48 years, it’s innovated many technologies that became commonplace: pocket calculators, laser printers.

Leadership and Change (Part 1)

Leadership is about change, but we all know disastrous stories of leaders whose boats cracked up on the rocks of change, either by leading an organization in a direction that constituents could not or would not accept, or by leading a group into some sort of dead end or cul-de-sac from which it never again emerged, or by leading an organization in so many different directions (read here “mission creep”) that no one really knew which way to go or how to prioritize tasks.

The Internet of Things grows as developers create solutions – Thoughts on Cloud

Not long ago, the Internet of Things (IoT) was a “future” technology. But technology moves fast and consumers have been clamoring for ways to make their hectic lives easier and more connected. IoT has become the next developer frontier, and that frontier is being settled quickly. It’s become mainstream enough that both Evans Data and Vision Mobile have published reports on IoT developers in the past month—cementing this trend as a reality.

In setting the stage for IoT, Vision Mobile points out that IoT has a similar trajectory to mobile phones. What made mobile apps take off? Not enterprise users, but consumers. Developers jumped on the demand for a broad range of apps at consumers’ fingertips. Yes, games are popular, but so are weather apps, fitness apps, camera apps, etc. You name it, there’s likely an app for it.
