How mesh networking ensures uninterrupted data exchange between connected devices

mesh network

One of the major challenges with connected devices is having a reliable network. Cell phone and standard Wi-Fi networks do not guarantee communication everywhere. Even dense urban  areas have numerous “dead” cellular zones in building basements, elevators, tunnels and underpasses. Remote areas like crop fields, mines, oceans and space also pose problems. With this in […]

Dr. Peter Scott-Morgan work-a-thon update: October 2019

Collaboration with Dr. Peter Scott-Morgan and DXC's London Innovation Center.

In a groundbreaking initiative with Dr. Peter Scott-Morgan and The Scott-Morgan Foundation, DXC Technology and world-class partners are helping Peter use the most advanced robotics and AI to turn him into what he calls the “world’s very first full Cyborg.” This initiative demonstrates the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to improve and transform the quality of life […]

Liberating the seaport from the harbor

Seaborne trade, one of civilization’s oldest customs, has grown steadily over the last decade as global trade has flourished. The digital transformation of retail and wholesale business has revolutionized international commerce. But behind the point, click and order façade, logistics companies and transportation authorities are scrambling to manage demand for both speed and volume. At […]

‘Documentation as code’ tools to get you started

Treating documentation as code has become an important part of the software development process. Companies are recognizing that the more they can treat documentation like source code, the more effective their documentation, software development and maintenance become. But it’s not only that — the entire ecosystem of teams supporting the software becomes more effective as […]

Automating network lifecycle management using AI

Managing devices and policies on a traditional network is a complex, manual task. So, what if we could automate the process leveraging AI? Traditionally, networking has relied on manually setting up individual policies for network devices. Because each vendor’s interface and syntax were unique, network administrators and team members had to learn the syntax for […]

Enabling a secure ecosystem of connected devices

The number of connected devices is predicted to grow to 75 billion by 2025. This will create a massively connected ecosystem, and data security will be paramount. Many of these devices will be cyber-physical systems, which closely integrate computation, networking and physical processes. The devices consist of a physical entity and its cyber twin, which […]

Moving toward a consistent framework for digital security transformation

By Curtis Price, IDC Organizations pursuing digital transformation initiatives are typically doing so to achieve a variety of possible business outcomes ranging from improved customer experience to improved operational efficiency. As enterprises plan their digital journeys, they are increasingly moving to a more distributed IT environment where corporate applications reside on premises as well as […]

‘Documentation as code’ matters. Here’s why

There has long been a mindset to treat documentation and code as separate functions. But this thinking is obsolete. Organizations should start treating documentation as code. Development projects are not complete without documentation that is in the same state or better as the code. That said, often documentation is considered a major pain point involving […]

Digital transformation threats and opportunities in travel and transportation

In travel and transportation most companies today don’t look at customer journeys as a collaborative exercise. They consider their job done when passengers are delivered safely to their appointed destination for their segment. A railway, for example, may only care that it has moved passengers safely from station A to station B. It ignores the […]
