The first simple robots stepped onto the factory floor approximately half a century ago. Today, you can hardly imagine a manufacturing business without automatic lines, steel robotic arms and CNC industrial machines. Robots in the manufacturing industry have become the new normal, as they are making significant strides in improving various production processes.
The evolution of the global web has resulted in virtual connections ubiquitously penetrating real-world objects and activities. Today, everything can be connected with everything, creating a new distributed ecosystem that goes beyond the familiar IoT (Internet of Things) concept. Cisco has coined a special term — the Internet of Everything (IoE) — to describe this dynamically changing phenomenon.
DNS service providers (CZ.NIC, ISC, Cisco, NLnet Labs, PowerDNS and others) have announced that they will stop supporting accommodations for DNS implementations that don’t comply with EDNS, the extended protocol version. As the result, some sites may become unavailable to visitors. The so-called DNS
Doomsday Flag Day is scheduled for February 1, 2019.
An extensive number of modern digital services, products and tools are ordered over the Internet and delivered to users on demand, rather than provided via local channels within enterprises or specialized organizations. To describe this phenomenon, a special term was invented: Everything-as-a-Service (XaaS).
The IT industry never stands still. This rapid, ever-changing stream is full of technologies, tools, software frameworks and endless ideas. The list of the current technology trends can be infinite. In this article, we would like to focus on the top information technology trends that are likely to define the year 2019.
Cloud technology seems to have captured the hearts of millions of users worldwide. In 2018, 3.6 billion internet users will access cloud services, up from 2.4 billion users in 2013, according to Statista. If your business is not in the remote environment yet, it’s time to take a look at the list of cloud service providers and choose a suitable platform.
Transportation is an ever-growing sector of the global economy that is vital for all industries, and it has enormous potential. The main technology trend nowadays is the automation of logistics and shipping activities. Any transport company can simplify its freight operations, save time, reduce costs and improve customer services with the help of numerous technologies incorporated in logistics management solutions. The most universal solution is, perhaps, a transportation management system (TMS).
Healthcare is the area where digitalization can produce the most significant and noticeable impact. For some reason, the medical industry lags behind other industries (retail, manufacturing, travel) in using modern technologies, but currently, it is making enormous efforts to reduce this gap. We are definitely on the way to digital health and smart hospitals where robots work together with doctors.
Reliable connections between customers and sales officers are key to a successful business. The most powerful driver allowing salespeople to increase client loyalty is a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system.
The ideas presented in the legendary science-fiction movies Matrix and Avatar, where people live in the digital simulation of the world and have their virtual prototypes, are likely to become reality. The new technology named digital twins is able to create virtual models of objects, processes and large systems. Scientists believe that the digital twin of a human will also appear soon.
