Bringing choice back to infrastructure
Author: Client Executive – Jamie Halliday
It’s Monday morning and you are queuing in the coffee line to get your first dose of caffeine for the day. But how you take that hit is your choice. Chai Latte, Flat White, Long Mac Topped Up, long black with a dash of cold milk and a sweetener.
The coffee industry is one of the biggest in the world, and for most part, many nations depend on it for many different reasons.
I was sitting waiting for my coffee the other morning, wireless earphones in my ears, Phone on the table, smart tablet Re-booting, and a smart watch on my wrist. It’s no secret that technology pretty much runs our lives these days. An abundance of gizmo’s and gadgets festering between our finger tips, dominate our work life, home life and everything in-between.
Are things getting easier?
The reality is we are all-human and live very busy lives. Therefore, we’re instinctively designed to want the best of both worlds, all with different feelings, views and motivations from one person to the next. That is why when making day-to-day decisions, the first thing we can hopefully all agree on is the need to have choice and flexibility. That is, the choice to decide what is best for you, your family, your children, and your interests.
How do you like your infrastructure?
For the past 10-15 years, there has not really been too much choice or flexibility for customers.
On the other hand, one could argue that the choice has been there, but I.T teams did not really care about driving business value, simply wanting shiny new toys to play with. Let us be honest, these toys may have been shiny, but they were certainly not new.
The truth is, gone are the days where just the software teams could pin their hopes and dreams on leading edge technology that will solve all of their problems, finding that special formula of easier, faster and better.
Infrastructure teams can now dream big as well. An enterprise cloud platform that delivers the agility and economics of the public cloud, all without sacrificing the security and control of on-premises infrastructure.
Evolution of simplifying consumption
They were at the forefront of the digital revolution when they launched over a decade ago, but sales of iPods and other MP3 players have slumped as consumers turned to smartphones as their gadget of choice. According to analysis by Mintel, the research company, sales of MP3 players today has fallen by almost £110 million – or 22 per cent – to £381 million compared to 2011.
So many things have changed over the past 20 years and how we as individuals consume the things we need and love. Take music for example; it’s arguably shaped us all in one way or another, with some philosophers believing that music is one of the defining characteristics that makes humans different from lower-order animals.
Most importantly, we have tried to change the way we consume it, to benefit the experience of the user, the environment and its effects. The change from the gramophone to the tape, the advance from the CD to the MP3, to the smart phone have been notable technological paradigm shifts in human history.
Music will continue to innovate, challenge, and completely change the ways in which we consume it.
