Beyond Bitcoin: How Enterprises Can Integrate Blockchain into Business By Kristy Blackmon In 2016, blockchain technology came close to hitting its peak on Gartner's annual Hype Cycle, signaling an imminent shift from an emerging, theoretical technology to widespread adoption. Like cloud, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) before it, blockchain is the tech industry's latest Next Big Thing. Analysts and industry experts say it holds immense potential for organizations, but many business leaders don't yet see a practical application for their operations. While a lot of people know blockchain is the technology behind Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies, what about enterprise applications in other industries? What exactly is blockchain? The code that makes up blockchain is incredibly complex, and only a few thousand people understand it. On a high level... (more)

Trends that will shape ios apps development in 2017

Although Apple’s operating system holds second place in the global market share with only 12%, iOS app development is much more lucrative. When developing for the iOS platform you are targeting an audience with much greater purchasing power, but more importantly, is loyal to the platform. To retain these loyal customers within its ecosystem, Apple has to satisfy all their whims by constantly improving and enhancing the platform with the latest technology available. Let’s see what technology trends will set the pace for iOS app development in 2017. It is vital for developers, as well as for entrepreneurs, to know these trends in and out, and to closely follow them, not only to survive the brutally competitive mobile app marketplace but also to derive the maximum benefit from the Apple’s relatively small but “willing to spend” customer base. Incorporating Augmented... (more)

More Technology Forecasts for 2010

New Year 2010 on Ulitzer I just can't help but share more technology forecasts for 2010, as it is January 1, 2010. Dan Grabham and the team from TechRadar put together some quality thoughts and I've included some of those and others below. First, let's address mobile phones during 2010. "It's the beginning of the end for the featurephone, those pretty but less functional handsets," says mobile phone specialist Gareth Beavis. "It's not that the segment is dying, rather that it's re-inventing itself as part of the smartphone revolution, meaning more applications for everyone." "Samsung's pledge to use Bada, which brings smartphone capabilities to cheaper handsets, on its lower end range shows that the soon-to-be world's biggest phone manufacturer wants to see smartphones in the hands of many more people, with the rest of the industry set to follow suit too." Think "Fort... (more)

Oracle + Sun Will Be Like the iPhone: Larry Ellison

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison told Reuters in an e-mail interview that then got put in a filing and shipped to the SEC that, despite all the armchair speculation, he's keeping Sun's hardware business. Not only that but he's going to pour money into Sun's Sparc chip. He's going to keep Sun's flagging hardware because it will make Oracle like the iPhone. Larry explains: "While most hardware businesses are low-margin, companies like Apple and Cisco enjoy very high-margins because they do a good job of designing their hardware and software to work together. If a company designs both hardware and software, it can build much better systems than if they only design the software. That's why Apple's iPhone is so much better than Microsoft phones." Larry continues: "Once we own Sun we're going to increase the investment in Sparc. We think designing our own chips is very, very import... (more)

iPhone Developer Summit: iPhone Apps VS. ROI

ROI (Return on Investment) has never had such a major importance, especially in these economic crisis days. In many ways a well delivered ROI analysis is the most effective part of the whole pitching art, whether you are pitching for a web development, desktop application or the increasing popular mobile iPhone / iPod Touch projects. Since I am very involved in mobile solutions, in this case iPhone / iPod Touch Applications, we are always trying to create something that will make it, an offer that cannot be refused. We all know, that ROI is a very important aspect on any kind of project, although here I would like to point out, that, these days we need to be even more flexible and scalable, so that the client has a clear way of looking at the whole solution with complete confidence about its success. With an iPhone App’s, it is slightly easier because of the App Store... (more)

Google To Show Off ‘ChromeBook’

Google is supposed to unveil a beta Chrome OS on a generic Atom-based netbook Tuesday and put the Google-branded thing into limited circulation in the run-up to a commercial product next year. Reportedly no more than 65,000 of this first-stab widget will be made as an appeal to developers. Google missed the netbook wave, which receded with the tablet onslaught and it’s questionable whether the Chrome cloud device can revive it. Chrome OS doesn’t have the touchscreen facilities needed for a tablet. Anyway Google’s got Android for tablets. The Chrome widget is expected to need the services of the anticipated Chrome Web Store if it’s to have anything to run since everything supposed to be done in the cloud. Presumably Google might have something to say about Internet access and carriers. Google was originally supposed to have a commercial product out from mainline OE... (more)
