Cross media bedrijvigheid was goed voor een omzet van € 90 miljard

Cross media bedrijvigheid was goed voor een omzet van € 90 miljard | ten Hagen on Cloud Computing | Scoop.it

Het aantal banen in de cross media industrie is in de jaren 2009 tot en met 2011 weer licht gestegen (0,5 procent). De daling van crisisjaar 2009 is tot stilstand gebracht. Deze cijfers werden vandaag bekend gemaakt op het Mediapark Jaarcongres in Hilversum.

 

De creatieve industrie groeit volgens iMMovator’s Cross Media Monitor 2012 met 1,9 procent, maar ICT laat een lichte daling zien: min 0,9 procent.

Voor de sector liggen moeilijke jaren in het verschiet. De economische terugval zal zich zeker nog doen voelen in de conjunctuurgevoelige ICT-sector. De bezuinigingen van de landelijke overheid zullen de creatieve industrie raken, in het bijzonder kunsten en cultureel erfgoed en media en entertainment. De kunsten moeten het de komende jaren met minder

doen.

 

Een belangrijk deel van de groei in creatieve industrie is toe te schrijven aan de opkomst van zzp’ers. Die nemen in getal toe, terwijl de grote bedrijven kleiner worden. Meer dan in de rest van de economie is er in de creatieve industrie sprake van schaalverkleining. De sector kent lage toetredingsdrempels en staat daardoor open voor nieuwe ondernemers. Daarmee ontstaat de behoefte aan nieuwe vormen van (samen)werken. Zelfstandigen en kleine bedrijven kunnen zo het missen van de schaal van grote bedrijven compenseren.

 

De Nederlandse cross media sector zorgt met bijna 553 duizend banen voor bijna 7 procent van de Nederlandse werkgelegenheid. Daarvan is 3,5 procent voor rekening van de creatieve industrie (ruim 280 duizend banen) en 3,4 procent van de ICT sector (ruim 272 duizend banen).

 

Cross media bedrijvigheid was goed voor een omzet van € 90 miljard. Daarvan komt € 32,8 miljard voor rekening van de creatieve industrie (2,9 procent) en € 57,2 miljard van ICT (5 procent). ICT genereert met minder banen dan de creatieve industrie meer omzet.

 

De twee steden met het grootste aantal cross media banen laten de laatste jaren (2009-2011) de sterkste groei zien. Amsterdam kreeg er in 2009 tot en met 2011 ruim 7.500 nieuwe cross media banen bij (+5,6 procent), Utrecht bijna 3 duizend (+5,3 procent). Daarmee groeit de concentratie in de Noordvleugel. Voor Hilversum geldt een ander verhaal: de stad verliest bijna duizend banen in de voorbije twee jaar, door terugloop in de grootschalige media- en entertainmentindustrie.

 

Het mediacluster in de Noordvleugel van de Randstad is nog steeds een belangrijke motor van de Nederlandse economie. Een op versterking van het cluster gerichte strategie is nodig, mede met het oog op de internationalisering van de sector, waardoor de concurrentie verscherpt. De clustering van cross media bedrijven zorgt momenteel vooral efficiency, maar moet nog meer een bron van innovatie zijn.

Forrester Says Cloud May Not Be the Future of IT: Really?

Forrester Says Cloud May Not Be the Future of IT: Really?

 

The aforementioned news items (See: Forrester: Cloud is not the future of IT and Cloud is not the future of IT, claims Forrester) were looking at Forrester’s Make the Cloud Enterprise Ready report, itself a part of the research firm’s Playbook on Cloud Computing, a framework for going on the cloud. James Staten, an analyst at Forrester, has been quoted as saying, “Not everything will move to the cloud as there are many business processes, data sets and workflows that require specific hardware or proprietary solutions that can’t take advantage of cloud economics. For this reason we’ll likely still have mainframes 20 years from now.”


At this point, I would like to point out a few things. One, saying “not everything will move to the cloud” is not the same as “most things won’t move to the cloud.” In other words, nowhere is mainframe’s or other legacy technologies’ dominance over cloud computing implied.


Two, the best thing (or perhaps the worst) about the future is that it’s impossible to predict accurately. For example, the negative issues plaguing cloud computing today may well have been overcome in a few years. To give an example, consider a trading platform that requires computational processing without delays beyond a minimum threshold, because as we all know, stock prices change within fractions of a second. While current cloud computing technology may not able to satisfy these specifications necessitating the deployment of in-house computers, available bandwidth may increase manifold in future to allow delivery of the same level of service in a distributed environment, as in cloud computing.


Three, what is worth mention here is Forrester’s earlier assessment of the future cloud computing market (See: Cloud Computing Market Will Top $241 Billion in 2020). As is evident, Forrester does consider cloud computing to be the future of IT. And finally, mainframes and cloud computing, though of totally different eras, are not incompatible (See: Mainframes in the Age of Cloud Computing).


In conclusion, I would like to reiterate my long-held belief (“long” relatively speaking, since cloud computing itself is only about a decade old) that cloud computing IS the future of IT. However, as every prediction of the future goes, conditions apply.

Klout, Influence, and the Future of Business

Klout, Influence, and the Future of Business | ten Hagen on Cloud Computing | Scoop.it

I believe that Klout is now emerging as a new type of economic signal for businesses, and like the MBA, this economic signal will eventually shape the nature of our firms – both positively and negatively.


To be clear, I have some real issues with Klout. I don’t believe it’s healthy to centralize on one definition of influence. Nor do I like the new social media “hamster wheel” it’s helping to create. But let’s put those issues aside for now to try to understand the real need that the company is filling in the marketplace.
Klout is currently the closest thing businesses have to a standardized signal that a prospective employee “gets” social media and has influence on social networks. In short, a high Klout score is a simple, convenient proxy for social media savvy.

Airflow Management Is The Next Step Towards Energy Efficient Data Centres

Airflow Management Is The Next Step Towards Energy Efficient Data Centres | ten Hagen on Cloud Computing | Scoop.it

Data Centre Manufacturer Minkels Releases Whitepaper On 'Rack Airflow Optimisation'
Data centre manufacturer Minkels, European producer of integrated solutions for data centre cooling, housing, power distribution and data centre monitoring, has published a whitepaper offering a comprehensive look at all the ins and outs of  'Data centre airflow management and optimisation'. "

 

After investing in energy-efficient cooling solutions and Cold Corridors, airflow management is the next big step towards creating energy efficiency," enthuses Patrick Timmer, specialist in airflow optimisation at Minkels and author of the whitepaper.


"Data centre chains and corporate data centres are making increasing use of energy-efficient cooling techniques such as Free Cooling and Fresh Air Cooling," Timmer adds. "Also, many data centres have since been fitted with Cold Corridors, which separate hot and cold airflows in a highly energy-efficient manner. Research carried out by our own R&D department shows that the use of Cold Corridors can result in energy savings of up to 30%. Many data centres, however, still lack an effective 'airflow management' system, an aspect with which even greater energy-efficiency can be realised. What's more, airflow optimisation is important for the good performance of the server, network and storage equipment, temperature control and the general stability of a data centre."

SuperMUC: First Commercial Hot-Water Cooled Supercomputer to Consume 40% Less Energy

SuperMUC: First Commercial Hot-Water Cooled Supercomputer to Consume 40% Less Energy | ten Hagen on Cloud Computing | Scoop.it

http://youtu.be/LzTedSh51Tw

 

The Leibniz Supercomputing Center (LRZ), in collaboration with IBM, today announced the world’s first commercially available hot-water cooled supercomputer, a powerful, high-performance system designed to help researchers and industrial institutions across Europe investigate and solve some of the world’s most daunting scientific challenges.

 

The new LRZ “SuperMUC” system was built with IBM System x iDataPlex Direct Water Cooled dx360 M4 servers with more than 150,000 cores to provide a peak performance of up to three petaflops, which is equivalent to the work of more than 110,000 personal computers.

 

Put another way, three billion people using a pocket calculator would have to perform one million operations per second each to reach equivalent SuperMUC performance. Also, a revolutionary new form of hot-water cooling technology invented by IBM allows the system to be built 10 times more compact and substantially improve its peak performance while consuming 40 percent less energy than a comparable air-cooled machine.

Social Media Is Going Corporate [INFOGRAPHIC]

 

Did you know that 94 percent of corporates use social media, and that 85 percent say that it’s given their business more exposure?

 

Facebook leads the way, ahead of Twitter and LinkedIn, and it’s easy to see why the pickup has been so explosive – 74 percent of brand marketers saw an increase in website traffic after investing just six hours per week on social media.

 

On the flip side, one social medium has been suffering in the wake of Facebook et al, and that’s blogs. While 61 percent of corporates still rate blogging overall, fewer than one quarter (23 percent) of Fortune 500 companies now actively maintain a corporate blog.

 

This infographic from MBA Programs takes a closer look at how and why social media is going corporate.

Former Pentagon Analyst Says China Can Shut Down All The Telecom Gear It Sold To The US

Former Pentagon Analyst Says China Can Shut Down All The Telecom Gear It Sold To The US | ten Hagen on Cloud Computing | Scoop.it
Can even hijack your Android phone....

 

Chinese companies apparently have a covert capability to remotely access communications technology sold to the United States and other Western countries and could "disable a country's telecommunications infrastructure before a military engagement," according to former and current intelligence sources.


The Chinese also have the ability to exploit networks "to enable China to continue to steal technology and trade secrets," according to the open source intelligence company Lignet, which is comprised of former U.S. intelligence analysts.


The issue centers on the Chinese firm Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., which U.S. intelligence sources say has direct links to the Chinese government and the People's Liberation Army, or PLA. These sources assert that Huawei and other Chinese telecommunications firms such as ZTE Corp. have "electronic backdoors" to telecommunications technology sold to the U.S. and other countries.

Internetbellen blijft groeien

Internetbellen blijft groeien | ten Hagen on Cloud Computing | Scoop.it
HOUTEN - Het aantal vaste telefoonaansluitingen is in het eerste kwartaal van dit jaar gegroeid met 31.000 tot 6,03 miljoen, het hoogste niveau sinds 2006. De groei werd vooral gestuwd door internetbellen.

 

Het aantal aansluitingen voor VoIP (bellen via internet) klom met 2,7 procent tot 4,45 miljoen. Daarmee werd een daling van het aantal ISDN-aansluitingen, met 6,7 procent tot 1,29 miljoen, gecompenseerd.


Telecompaper voorziet dat het aantal vaste telefoonaansluitingen dit jaar met 0,9 procent groeit.


De groei komt vooral doordat telecombedrijven steeds vaker zogenoemde 'triple-play' pakketten aanbieden, oftewel pakketten met zowel bellen als internet en televisie.

 

Het onderzoeksbureau verwacht dat Tele2 en T-Mobile het voorbeeld van KPN, Vodafone en Telfort hierin zullen volgen.

How is Tim Cook’s Apple different? He’s open with investors, doesn’t scare employees

How is Tim Cook’s Apple different? He’s open with investors, doesn’t scare employees | ten Hagen on Cloud Computing | Scoop.it
Tim Cook has yet to launch a revolutionary new product since he took command of Apple last August, but, little by little, he’s been shaping the company in his own way — moving it beyond the idol worship of Steve Jobs, and towards more transparency and efficiency.

 

In a new magazine piece, Fortune dove into Cook’s Apple and discovered that, even though things are now different from the Jobs era, change isn’t necessarily a bad thing for Apple.

 

“In general, Apple has become slightly more open and considerably more corporate,” wrote Fortune’s Adam Lashinsky. “In some cases Cook is taking action that Apple sorely needed and employees badly wanted. It’s almost as if he is working his way through a to-do list of long-overdue repairs the previous occupant (Jobs) refused to address for no reason other than obstinacy.”

 

For all of his creative genius, Steve Jobs wasn’t always the easiest person to work with. Cook, not being a product guru, is instead taking more time to listen to investors and Apple employees. Fortune recounts how he attended an investor meeting in February: Cook simply listened (without even checking e-mail), and then gave controlled remarks at the end of the session. That’s a stark contrast to Jobs, who rarely attended investor meetings.

 

Cook is also less of a terrifying presence to Apple employees, according to Fortune he’s taken to dining with random Apple workers in the company’s cafeteria. Like a good shrink, Cook seems to be listening more to Apple investors and employees, though that could mean some changes in the company’s famously engineering and design-oriented approach to building products.

What Apple and Google are not Telling you About Mobile Device Security

What Apple and Google are not Telling you About Mobile Device Security | ten Hagen on Cloud Computing | Scoop.it

Based on research from the most recent Unisys Security Index report, Unisysfound that business users are accessing critical corporate data via unprotected means such as public wifi and utilizing simple passwords. In addition, an increasing number of people are accessing their employers’ business applications using their personal devices.

And thanks to the flood of devices surging into the workplace from the BYOD movement, the world can suddenly climb through the thousands of security holes opened up by all those devices and apps.

 

Enterasys Networks was one of the first Security vendors to address this issue, and I suspect Unisys will follow suit. Companies like Good for Enterprise are providing a robust security wrapper around productivity applications, but it’s still not charged with protecting that rogue game downloaded by Henry in Marketing.

One thing is for sure, there’s going to be a lot of challenges for IT moving forward. Unisys has outlined a few of them in the infographic below:
