Shadow influences drive considered decisions

The term “the usual suspects” is used widely in law enforcement and marketing vernacular. We are creatures of habit and we gravitate toward what we’ve grown accustomed to or at best toward what seems to work. I spend much of my professional life analyzing data related to the neuroscience of buying technology products. These purchases […]

Ce que vous devriez déjà savoir à propos de l’Internet des objets

Il y a quelques semaines j’écrivais un article à propos des différentes étapes par lesquelles une entreprise doit passer avant de sauter le pas de l’Internet des objets (IoT). Je soulignais par exemple l’importance de centraliser et analyser les données collectées grâce aux appareils connectés. Mais pour y parvenir avec brio, il faut faire attention […]

The IoT lesson you should have already learned

IoT skills DXC Blogs

A few weeks ago I wrote about the steps enterprises must take to get ready for the Internet of Things (IoT). I focused on the importance of managing and analyzing data generated from connected devices. Doing this successfully, however, is predicated on two things: connectivity and security. Without these, your IoT initiatives are doomed to underperform or, even […]

Le cloud et le monde de la technologie, en évolution constante

Je travaille dans le secteur de la technologie depuis de nombreuses années, de la construction d’ordinateurs à l’installation de réseaux, en passant par la programmation dans différents langages et encore bien d’autres rôles.

Llevo muchos años trabajando en este sector de la tecnología y he podido vivir desde el inicio de los ordenadores a la instalación de diferentes redes, o a la evolución de distintos lenguajes de programación, así como otros muchos hitos. Y algo que ha sido una constante en mi carrera ha sido el cambio. He […]

Breaking free from legacy constraints in a cloud world

In the world of on-premise delivery, services are constrained to stop people from damaging the service for everyone else. A great example of this is storage quotas that stop people from having an email mailbox or file larger than a certain size. Likely, when the technical infrastructure was being procured for the on-premise service, someone looked at the costs and said […]

How enterprises can get ahead of the IoT skills gap

IoT skills DXC Blogs

As the Internet of Things (IoT) morphs from “future technology” to something enterprises soon will have to manage (if they aren’t doing so already), it’s important to lay the groundwork for successful implementations. Much of that involves the basics of enterprise technology: Ensuring that data is securely collected, transmitted and analyzed. But making that happen requires […]

Integrating video into ‘The Brand Called IT’  

video marketing DXC Blogs

If you did a survey, what famous global brand would your internal customers compare you to? How would you answer the same question about your IT organization? History tells me, there would probably be a disconnect between the two answers. As I’ve researched and written for the past six years, I’ve noticed most surveys still stereotype […]

How mobile payments can transform your business

Consumers still are slow to adopt mobile payments, despite efforts by companies such as Apple, Google and Samsung to generate traction for their mobile payment platforms. But don’t let the underwhelming ramp-up deceive you; mobile payments will eventually reach a tipping point, just as online purchasing did years ago. And the enterprises that will most effectively […]
