@ThingsExpo | 'Internet of Things' and The Transformation of GE (#IoT)

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 09/15/2014 - 23:45
General Electric (GE) has been a household name for more than a century, thanks in large part to its role in making households easier to run. Starting with the light bulb invented by its founder, Thomas Edison, GE has been selling devices (“things”) to consumers throughout its 122-year history. Last week, GE announced that it is officially leaving that job to others. While the lighting division will stay, GE will now turn its attention to selling industrial machinery and analytics as a service to other companies. GE’s transformation to focus on building industrial machines such as aircraft engines, locomotives, gas-fired turbines and medical imaging equipment has been underway for quite some time. But for those that grew up with GE, the company’s catchy slogan, “We bring good things to life,” used between 1979 and 2003, is synonymous with what the brand stood for. Who could have imagined in 1979 when its advertising firm first came up with that memorable catchphrase how well the slogan would capture where GE was headed in the era of the industrial Internet and the Internet of Things (IoT)? GE has been systematically moving to secure its place in both of these fields. Wind turbines, locomotives, jet engines and other industrial machines are all examples of products that have successfully transitioned to being sold as a service.

The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets.

The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.

CIO Shocker: #Cloud and SaaS Surprise Awaits

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 09/05/2014 - 18:00
The advancement of technology has led to widespread Cloud data and SaaS application usage throughout enterprises. And CIOs are unprepared for the (mostly unwelcome) implications - largely unaware of the "SaaS Sprawl" in their organizations. These Cloud applications are available for just about every role in a company - from human resources to marketing, there's an app for that. And odds are, someone in your organization is using it - most likely without IT knowing. As app (primarily SaaS and Cloud) use within organizations continues to spread and accelerate, IT professionals are largely unaware of the massive scale of Cloud application utilization. However, IT continues to be held responsible for many of the implications resulting from this widespread proliferation.
