Strong Points of View

  • Technology is the focus of our daily lives and this creates either positive or negative influences on the users. Thus, user attitudes and experiences are always paramount considerations
  • Analytics and Big Data are the primary drivers for businesses to make decisions. Thus, third party as a service models will dominate the IT industry and beyond
  • Mobile Commerce and the mobile-app only application will eventually threaten extinction for many retail and pos websites
  • Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft and Amazon will greatly influence the future of digital healthcare by offering new collaborations that include intuitive, personalized and remote healthcare devices and new treatment procedures

Three Posts I have Under Construction

  • Mobile commerce is no longer science fiction
  • What is Big Tech teaching us about healthcare?
  • Unmanned aerial systems as a service proliferate as long as they collect and analyze big data.
