The Next Big Thing
Posts about next generation technologies and their effect on business.

Web 2.0 four years later and five years out

There is a good interview of Tim O'Reilly that validated many of the posts we've made in this blog over the last 5 years. He also published a white paper that goes into more details.


The way business value is generated in the future will be changing, as we have the intersection of sensors and edge computing with large databases of information and context. The kinds of skills needed by the personnel will be changing as well. As value is generated by having people focus on the unique aspects of the business instead of being involved in "normal". Some may think this mimics science fiction, but really it will just become the new normal.


The interview provides some good examples and greater understanding of a holistic view of the intersection of technologies that we'll likely see coming out of this downturn.
