CertiVox.com - SkyPin ™ Multi-Factor Authentication Service | Disruptive Influencers | Scoop.it

SkyPin is an in-browser, single sign-on, multi-factor authentication service, available from December 2012, that developers can easily integrate into their websites and mobile applications. It is built on MIRACL, the gold standard, open source SDK for elliptic curve cryptography (ECC).

 

I expect this to be a huge disruptor in the encryption security space! I've signed up for the beta so watch this space for updates. Now, try saying this phrase really fast  "elliptic curve bilinear pairing cryptography"

Is the Next Uber Coming Your Way?

Is the Next Uber Coming Your Way? | Disruptive Influencers | Scoop.it

What makes the world’s top executives cringe? “The ‘Uber syndrome’ – where a competitor with a completely different business model enters your industry and flattens you,” said one executive. As the CIO of a U.S. transportation firm, this is someone who knows just how much momentum an eighteen-wheeler builds up when it’s barreling along the freeway. But many other business leaders also fear a new rival could turn their companies into roadkill.

 

“It’s very difficult to predict how the competitive landscape will play out,” the CEO of a Dutch
IT company said. “Will adjacent players try to get into our space? Will the folks who built the pipe try to compete with us?” the CEO of a U.S. digital marketing firm asked

Redefining Boundaries: The Global C-suite Study from IBM surveyed 5,247 business leaders from 21 industries in more than 70 countries. 

There's a lot of jargon in this study. It reflects the fear and disorientation experienced by most executives. Learning is the strategy in times of change.

“Technology disruptions such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data and mobility are leading to faster business transformations than ever before. Companies have to pivot quickly in order to stay ahead of the curve, compete and conform to the new style of business,” said Raffi Margaliot, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Application Delivery Management, HP Software. “This year’s World Quality Report highlights how quickly IT leaders are responding to these mega trends that are rapidly changing our industry and the steps they are taking to keep pace with the demands of their users without compromising application quality and user experience.”

The maturity of the quality assurance market has seen the function become a critical business operation. With an increasing number of organizations now adopting DevOps and Agile, there are a number of new roles being created to match the growing importance and size of the market. Roles that never previously existed, such as Software Development Test Engineers, are now appearing and the demand for these positions is only likely to increase as quality assurance becomes more central to the operation of organizations.

Blockchain: Firing up the Crypto-economy

Blockchain: Firing up the Crypto-economy | Disruptive Influencers | Scoop.it

"The future is decentralized However, thinking in blockchain terms requires an entirely different mindset. Our traditional way of organizing our economy and society, “the old way of thinking,” is completely turned upside down thanks to the blockchain. The oft-heard statement “the future is decentralized” demands people and organizations to let go of the past, to think outside the box or, what’s more, to throw the box away and start anew, from scratch. Back to the drawing-board. And this is no easy matter. The thing is that companies are trying to preserve the problem to which they themselves were once the solution."

Why ET3? | Evacuated Tube Transport Technologies | "Space Travel on Earth"

Why ET3? | Evacuated Tube Transport Technologies | "Space Travel on Earth" | Disruptive Influencers | Scoop.it

ET3 is literally "Space Travel on Earth". ET3 is silent, low cost, safe, faster than jets, and is electric.

Car sized passenger capsules travel in 1.5m (5') diameter tubes on frictionless maglev. Air is permanently removed from the two-way tubes that are built along a travel route. Airlocks at stations allow transfer of capsules without admitting air. Linear electric motors accelerate the capsules, which then coast through the vacuum for the remainder of the trip using no additional power. Most of the energy is regenerated as the capsules slow down. ET3 can provide 50 times more transportation per kWh than electric cars or trains.

Speed in initial ET3 systems is 600km/h (370 mph) for in state trips, and will be developed to 6,500 km/h (4,000 mph) for international travel that will allow passenger or cargo travel from New York to Beijing in 2 hours. ET3 is networked like freeways, except the capsules are automatically routed from origin to destination.

ET3 capsules weigh only 183 kg (400 lbs), yet like an automobile, can carry up to six people or 367 kg (800 lbs) of cargo. Compared to high speed rail, ET3 needs only 1/20th the material to build because the vehicles are so light. With automated passive switching, a pair of ET3 tubes can exceed the capacity of a 32 lane freeway. ET3 can be built for 1/10th the cost of High Speed Rail, or 1/4th the cost of a freeway.

"Harvard business professor Clayton Christensen literally wrote the book on technology disruption, and he thinks Apple, Tesla Motors, venture capitalists and most of the nation’s colleges and universities should be afraid.

 

The author of The Innovator’s Dilemma said Wednesday that all of them could be killed by less advanced competitors in the same way that many once dominant technology companies have been in the past."

Sogeti’s new report, “Connect – Talk –Think – Act; Developing Internet of Things & Industrial Internet Opportunities”, does not offer instant recipes for success. That would grossly underestimate the complexity of IoT solutions. Instead it encompasses a clear explanation of IoT opportunities from industrial to consumer markets that are too compelling to ignore. It helps the reader to focus on “Things” from his/her own perspective and develop solutions that will enhance your organization’s competitive edge.
