Disruptive innovation is all over the space. Our customers are forcing their organizations to the forefront of this new change. To reinvent themselves. Process and technology innovation are key conversations – led by big data, Internet of Things (IoT), Mobility or related emerging ideas within industry verticals we serve. We are prepared to support our customers in their journey to innovate in their operations.
Be it data explosion or new apps, staying on top of trends is serious business for those of us in the field that is considered trans formative. Skill sets come and go at a breakneck pace, and it’s important to stay ahead of the curve in an attempt to anticipate the next hot trend to keep oneself relevant in an ever-changing world.
Techno-Comp understands this fact. We study and understand changes impacting client’s business.
To help understand the importance of studying emerging technologies, simply look back at the past decade and contemplate the disruptive technologies that have revolutionized the way IT works today. Topics such as server virtualization, big data, and cloud computing were once merely high-level concepts and ideas. Yet, who investigated and learned about these technologies early on had a dramatic advantage over our peers in the workplace, once these technologies came to fruition.
Next is to be best at staying the course on emerging technologies. As technologies evolve so does an increase in its complexity. It takes more and more time for
technologists to start to comprehend new technologies, let alone learn how to implement and support them. So it’s in our best interest to start our education as early as possible by first identifying the technology trends likely to shake up the IT landscape in the years ahead and then invest in acquiring knowledge.
Today Techno-Comp leads collaborative exchange of ideas and practices internally with employees and externally with technology groups.
EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES WE FOCUS ON
Mobile Computing, 3D Spatial & Robotics
The proliferation of mobile computing around the world clearly indicates that a focus on future wireless technologies would make our list. The same goes for IT’s hottest topic of the past few years — IT security. Other technologies, such as three-dimensional imagery and robotics, will advance many areas of our lives that have remained stagnant for years.
Cloud and Fog Computing
Where cloud computing can be thought of as externalizing applications to public and private infrastructure (in the cloud), fog computing surrounds us. Fog computing takes
cloud computing and pushes it out to the edge device, as opposed to keeping it in a data center. The idea is that our end devices will not talk back to a handful of cloud providers, where our applications and data live. Instead, fog computing creates a wireless mesh at the edge, where point-to-point communication with devices in our geographical proximity are far more prevalent. By creating a heterogeneous mesh that all talks together, a fog approach streamlines, optimizes, and improves availability for mobile device connectivity.
Three-dimensional technologies have been much more of a novelty than a technological breakthrough in the recent past. This mostly has to do with the fact that 3-D displays are difficult to achieve. But the latest 3-D display offerings are seriously good. Although many of us still struggle to find a purposeful use for 3-D displays in our own daily lives (they’re not going to help with spreadsheet or database work), niche areas such as mechanical design, engineering and operations will benefit immensely.
Next Gen Wireless
Wireless, from both cellular and WiFi perspectives, is an incredibly hot topic right now. As more devices become mobile, the need for increasing amounts of bandwidth — and thus, wireless
spectrum — is on the rise. With a finite amount of wireless spectrum, we’re left with lawmakers determining how much of that usable spectrum will be allocated for wireless data communication. Techno-Comp provides thought-leadership and proof of concepts to leverage current application and customer usability advancements for the new generation of bandwidth as it becomes available for personal and commercial use.
IoT (Internet of Things)
Along with tremendous opportunity, the Internet of Things brings enormous exposure to security risks. IT organizations must invest in a variety of security practices and resources to strengthen their protection. Due to huge potential benefits in automation and cost savings, IoT has gained traction with enterprises of every size. Organizations are planning to leverage IoT to harness business growth and innovation. At the same time, however, IoT requires infrastructure and processes that can prevent exposure of critical business information or the mishandling of some critical task due to a false alarm. In the excitement of exploring the myriad ways to deploy IoT for profit, organizations can easily miss planning for the very basic security problems that can be associated with IoT devices.
Techno-Comp specializes in storage extension and secure data storage/retrieval, sensors/assets management, resource prioritization, device security including vendor policies and ethics,
hardware, software and platform vulnerabilities and legal issues and network compliance. Our comprehensive approach to smart devices joining your network is the utmost value we offer as protection of your information and avoidance of potential risks.
