Business Innovation – Opportunities and Trends for 2014

After reviewing Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic Technology Trend Predictions for 2014, I was struck by what nearly every entry on the list has in common: the cloud. To me, this validates what many industry professionals have said for years – that cloud computing is here to stay. As Gartner puts it, the cloud is “the preferred IT Services model with a range of expanding options,” and I agree – the cloud is a crucial enabler of the increasingly decentralized enterprise.For today’s blog, I’d like to drill into the intersection of cloud and the Internet of Things – focusing on both the business opportunity and implication for IT infrastructure. At Intel, we see this intersection as a critical investment point for business and have placed a significant focus and investment with our partners and customers. To learn more about Intel’s vision for the Internet of Things, check out Intel CEO, Brian Krzanich as he delivers his keynote address at CES 2014.However, Intel’s investments are simply laying the foundation for the solutions needed for next-generation IT infrastructure. If you are attending Cisco Live Milan at the end of this month, you will see the partnership between Cisco and Intel on display. Together, we are enabling scale, security, and performance for cloud computing initiatives. These are meaningful, as they serve as the backbone for many big data initiatives that are enabling businesses to gain useful and actionable insights from the ever-growing number of device sensors. Intel has planned a line-up of demos and technical sessions at Cisco Live Milan that will cover many of 2014’s key topics. I invite you to stop by the Intel booth and enjoy some spirited and informative dialogue around IT’s key opportunities and challenges, such as turning analytics into actionable business intelligence through visualization with our partners SAS, or how Intel’s Distribution for Apache Hadoop and Cisco’s Common Platform Architecture (CPA) can support enterprise-class analytics with speed and performance. We’ll also have demos and breakout technical talks with our Cisco partners that will cover how Cisco and Intel’s partnership can help your organization embrace cloud computing for your data center without compromising security and data integrity. Finally, don’t miss the opportunity to hear Rod O’Shea, EMEA Director of Intel Embedded Sales Group, who will be sharing more on Intel’s vision for IoT in the Cisco Internet of Everything Pavilion. In the comments section, or on Twitter, let me know how cloud is impacting your organization this year!
