Digital transformation is the holy grail of businesses today, but the route is bumpy and the journey full of challenges. Businesses have, in waves, seen tech innovation as the gateway to unimaginable riches, all the while being unable to break from the shackles of reality. Transformations that Haven’t Delivered The cloud is the most obvious example. The idea you could replace all your systems and infrastructure with brand new stuff that’s easier to use, deploy, and scale—at a lower cost—has been hugely compelling. Unfortunately, the principles may be true, but then there’s the Jevons paradox ..read more

Machines as Amplifiers: Constructing Value Statements
GigaOM | The industry leader in emerging technology research
by Darrel Kent
1w ago
As I’ve previously noted, all machines are amplifiers, including the hardware and software machinery that makes up today’s computer systems. The technology market is, therefore, a series of leapfrogs as providers work out new ways of amplifying, augmenting, or replacing human effort. For technology to deliver, it must enable people to achieve their desired goals. This means determining how to define value in a way that assures business fit at both a strategic level and in operational and organizational processes. Let’s get to it. Defining Value for Strategic Business Fit Should we develop and ..read more

Apple Vision Pro: Unlocking the Potential of Spatial Computing
GigaOM | The industry leader in emerging technology research
by Howard Holton
2w ago
Introduction I rarely get the chance to work with technologies that fundamentally disrupt the way we work. Right now, I am using two. The first (and most obvious) is a LLM. Large Language Models are more than an AI bot that can understand human language and respond accordingly. They have the potential to change how we use technology. Rather than a GUI with buttons, menus, and a help button that does anything but help, what if you just talked to your computer and told it what you wanted it to help you do? A keyboard is faster than a keyboard and mouse, and voice is faster than either. But that ..read more

The Evolution of Endpoint Management
GigaOM | The industry leader in emerging technology research
by Paul Stringfellow

Unified endpoint management (UEM) is neither a new term nor a new technology. Rather, it’s a bundling of existing technologies into a comprehensive single platform for managing the enterprise endpoint estate of digital assets. UEM brings together tools such as mobile and desktop/laptop client management, application management and delivery, and policy management and enforcement. Why is UEM Important? Endpoint management is a challenge for all organizations. Endpoints include phones and laptops, internet of things (IoT and smart devices, operational technology such as sensors and door entry sys ..read more

Container Networking: From DIY to Buy
GigaOM | The industry leader in emerging technology research
by Andrew Green
1M ago
There’s been little to no coverage from the analyst community of enterprise-grade container networking solutions—a market that has until recently consisted of mainly open source solutions. Networking in complex environments such as multicloud/multicluster deployments is difficult, and generally speaking, workforces don’t have the skills for it. So while building a networking solution on top of open source container networking interfaces (CNIs), ingress controllers, and service meshes has worked so far, I expect that larger and more complex deployments can be managed more efficiently with enter ..read more
