From accessing files anywhere and anytime to allowing online storage for protection measures, some businesses are seeing a broad range of benefits from the move to the Cloud. Since Gartner's original prediction of a major Cloud shift in the next four years, there's been a strong consumer uptake of Cloud-based backups such as Apple's iCloud and Google's Drive. However, some in business still find the Cloud daunting.
In a time of emerging technologies these are the top trends to keep an eye out for in 2017!
Imagine life without our smartphones, tablets, digital televisions and the Internet. We would still be stuck in the early 90s. We are now connected to so many devices, that with a few mouse clicks, swipes, and scans, we can buy products, services, link up with social media, communicate with others from around the world and connect to the many Apps that now arrange our lives. The prevalence of our life in cyberspace can also come at a cost.
The power of the digital age allows for the efficient and inexpensive collection of information, which can be given away freely. This questions the idea of privacy, not just on the web, but within the devices we use daily. As everything is now out in the open, online, do we have the right to be left alone? Do we still have Privacy?
2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the first Apple iPhone. During the last ten years, we have seen some amazing technological feats that have moved us from simple texting and phone calls, into the world of smartphone Apps, where nearly anything is possible. From tracking your fitness, tracking your spending, to colouring your world, you name it and ‘there is an App for that’. Now we are moving beyond the App and to incorporate computer and electronic technologies in a practical way, which allows us to wear the new technology. Welcome to the new wave of wearables.
A hospital staff member, expecting delivery of an online purchase, opens an email claiming to contain details of a parcel delivery. Instead, it delivers a virus. This malware virus is sitting dormant and undetected for months until its creator decides to unleash the terror.
Last month, we discussed the Device Mesh, the new connections to our devices – "The web of wearable and mobile devices people use to find information or to communicate, as our professional and personal lives mesh together." As the future is here, our reality has changed. It is now virtual and augmented.
Virtual & Augmented Reality – What are the differences?
Welcome to the new age of connectivity.
Since the introduction of the internet in the mid-1990s and the smartphone (Apple IPhone) in June 2007, acquiring information through websites and Apps was just the beginning. Now we use a multitude of devices, such as multi-branded smartphones, tablets and now smartwatches that allow us to be connected even further. We have more connections with people from all over the world, through social media, and more information at our fingertips. Add the influx of wearable technological devices, such as Fitbit and smartwatches, to measure our health and fitness habits to the way we can connect these devices to our cars, appliances, and ourselves. The world is increasingly part of a "device mesh", where according to Analyst company Gartner, it is one of the technology trends for 2016.
In today's world, no one can really afford to be reactive when it comes to security; it's now all about rapidly responding to security risks through ongoing, real-time monitoring, with analytics to spot the anomalies and potential threats.
