Hybrid Clouds

Hybrid Clouds | 5 Most important technologies in the next 5-10 years, based on current trends in the IT industry. | Scoop.it
The reality is that hybrid clouds are in your future – like it or not. And, you will WANT to have IaaS resources from multiple providers. In some cases for geographic support, in other cases to have access to different capabilities.

 

One of the newest entrants to the field of brokers is being announced today at Cloud Expo: CompatibleOne, the open source broker. This is worth taking a look if you are in the market for an open source cloud broker. Having the advantage of being able to start from scratch, they have built a clean approach to managing assets, perhaps in a local private cloud to remote assets in a public or partner cloud.

Big data analytics: the future of IT security?

Big data analytics: the future of IT security? | 5 Most important technologies in the next 5-10 years, based on current trends in the IT industry. | Scoop.it
Big data analytics tools will be crucial to enterprise security as criminals deploy faster and more sophisticated attacks in attempts to steal sensitive data, according to security firm RSA. (Big data analytics: the future of IT security?
Cassandra Torino's insight:

In this article, Matthew Finnegan, suggest big data analytics will become the future of IT security.  It is also mentioned that businesses are slow to adopt big data analytics however, the article states "Big data analytics tools will be crucial to enterprise security as criminals deploy faster and more sophisticated methods to steal valuable data, according to security firm RSA."

 

This indicates the probability of big data analytics becoming an important technology in the next 5-10 years. Thus, making this article is helpful to my research.

 

The only limitation within this article is that it doesn't give much information about what big data is and how it works. However, this article contains a lot of helpful information and therefore, I will most likely be referring to it in my essay.

The biggest thing since the home computer: Printing in 3-D | 5 Most important technologies in the next 5-10 years, based on current trends in the IT industry. | Scoop.it
DUBBED the biggest thing since the home computer, 3D printing allows users to manufacture any real object from a variety of cheap, renewable materials.

Via Daniel Sandstrom
Cassandra Torino's insight:

In this article, Jacklyn Wagner, talks about 3D printing and its possible implications in the future. Also, Jacklyn explains the many benefits society will receive in the future when the 3D printers become more advanced and affordable.

 

This article is useful to my research as it suggest the possibility of 3D printers becoming a very important technology in the future. Although the article mentions 3D printing's possible legal issues, its still an innovative piece of technology that could help many people in need. As mentioned in the article, 3D printing could possibly produce medical supplies, prosthetic limbs and other important items to developing areas.

 

The only limitation within the information given in this article is that it does not give predicted dates in which we could see this technology become recognized as one of the most important technology on the planet. Though, despite this limitation, the article is a good source of information and would serve as a great reference within my essay.

Via Laurentiu Bogdan
Cassandra Torino's insight:

In this article, Ryan Whitwam, talks about a magnetic material that could enable computers to perform 1000 times more efficiently. First, he introduces the problem with transistors. When current is directed through the transistors, heat becomes apparent along with loss of electrons. However, it is suggested that using a class of magnetic materials called multiferroics, power can be directed from one end of the circuit to the other without moving any electrons, thus, creating no heat and no electron loss.

 

The information within this article is useful towards my research as it provides me with a technology that may become very important in the next half decade or more. With more time and research, this material could be within every electronic device sometime in the future.

 

The only limitation of this article is that it focuses mainly on how laptops will benefit from this material rather than how computers will.

However, this is still a good read that contains a lot of information, therefore it is very likely I will be referring to this article in my essay.

Cassandra Torino's insight:

Within this article, Nabil Sultan, talks about cloud computing and its potential of becoming highly important in the future as well as the present problems this technology faces.

 

This article is peer reviewed and much of the information is referenced. It is also useful to  my research as it suggest reasons as to why cloud computing will become well known in the future. Nabil indicates a possibility of cloud computing being able to benefit people within developing countries as individuals and business owners can compete against those in advanced nations on an equal playing field. This, along with many other advantages cloud computing provides, is why it is highly likely to be a very important technology in the next 5-10 years.

 

I cannot find any limitations within this article therefore, I will most likely be referring back to this site in my essay.

Charlotte Au's curator insight, March 25, 2014 8:52 AM

This peer-reviewed journal article discusses the various benefits and pitfalls of cloud computing as well as how cloud computing might develop in the future. 

 

Cloud computing enables an organisation to concentrate on their core businesses by leaving the IT aspect of their operations to experts in the field. Due to economies of scale, cloud computing also provides organisations the opportunity to take advantage of new developments in IT technologies at potentially affordable costs.  However, there are issues with security, outages, reliability and interoperability in cloud computing that may prevent its uptake by businesses in the future.

 

This article predicts that there will be a massive uptake of mobile cloud computing in the future especially in the developing world as cloud computing through mobile devices can provide businesses in the developing world a free or low cost alternative to traditional desktop based applications.

 

This article  is up to date and provided me with informative and thorough understanding of cloud computing. Even though it primary focus is on businesses, the points it discusses can also apply to society in general. As cloud computing develops, it may become more affordable and rapidly implemented by small businesses, individuals and entrepreneurs.

Cassandra Torino's insight:

This article is by, Suzanne Choney, but much of the content and information is from a Forrester analyst named, Frank Gillett. The article is about tablet devices becoming a preferred primary device by 2016.

Much of the content in this article are quotes from Frank, however, the statements within the quotes are frequently reinforced by collected data. Therefore, this article is useful to my research as it suggest the possibility of tablets becoming one of the most important devices in the future. At this stage the tablet is lightweight and performs very well, with further modifications, its possible that tablets could become better than a computer.

 

No limitations within this article that I can think of. Therefore, this article will most likely be a great reference when I write my essay.

Cassandra Torino's insight:

In this video, Steve Phillips mentions his top three IT trends and how they are being applied in his company, Avnet. His three top, "tech trends", include mobile strategy, predictive analytic and IT security.  Steve also introduces the idea of using a, “containerization” method to eliminate the clashing of employee’s personal data and  their work data. He continues on to talk about the need for a larger data storage and introduces HANA, an innovative development that presents them with the tools and technology to help extract the full value of their data.'

 

This video is helpful to my research as it informs me about the top IT trends of 2014. However, there is a possibility that these trends could stay as the top IT trends for years to come.

 

The main limitation to this article is that Steve focuses on his company’s need for these technologies rather than society’s needs. Though, this video has helped my research and will most likely be used as a reference.

This article explains how IT industry is likely to shift in the future. In doing so it recognises five big IT trends for the next half-decade and how these technologies will shape the IT industry in the future. The key trends identified includes tablet devices, social media, cloud computing, consumerism in IT and big data. It also briefly outlines the future challenges that businesses may face when adopting these challenges and provides an insight on how to overcome these challenges.

 

This article was an interesting read and it succinctly identified the key five future IT trends that have been identified and verified in other information sources. However, it does not provide sufficient information on how these key technologies might shape smaller businesses and individuals in society as its primary focus is on corporations or larger businesses.
