It’s been a little over a month since the Pokémon I remember as a kid was relaunched as it’s more hip and trendy cousin, Pokémon GO. Although I’m not much of a gamer myself, I will admit that the location-based augmented reality (AR) game developed by Niantic was intriguing. And the premise of the game has the potential to shift the gaming industry from the confines of a dark basement to the whole world as a gamer’s playground.
The transportation industry affects everyone’s daily routine. Over 11 billion trips are taken each year on public transit in the United States — more than 16 times the number of trips taken yearly in domestic air travel. With the massive amount of travelers each year comes emerging security challenges, such as emergency management, cybersecurity threats, and public safety and security risks.
Collection and analysis of large data sets is perennially hot. Remember Data Warehouses? ‘Big Data’ is just the latest buzzword for this trend. Admit it - it’s an alluring vision. Supposedly just save enough data and apply the right tools, and insight (and money) will rain from the clouds. Though frequently clothed in breathless hype, there is a kernel of truth here. You can find insight in rivers of data if you have the right tools. Organizations across a range of industries are successfully capturing and analyzing oceans of machine- and sensor-generated data with Splunk.
The experience of being stuck in traffic, late for an appointment, imagining alternative routes you might have taken if you’d only known what was ahead, is universal.

Self-driving cars. Self-filling pantries and refrigerators. Been there, done that. Commercial flights to the moon. Coming soon. Cure for Zika virus. That would be awesome. Computers with personalities. Finding life on other planets. Scary. Global monetary system. Accurate weather prediction. Novel concepts. Pokémon GO. Yawn.
Security and safety concerns are continuing to grow worldwide. With the onset of federal security mandates like the Affordable Healthcare Act, the healthcare industry is in transformation—being forced to evolve and make security a higher priority.
Many companies are getting caught up in the hype of moving to the cloud, and in their initial pursuit they discover some of the hidden issues and costs that are otherwise not obvious. There are many services of great value in the public cloud: software, storage, infrastructure, and more, and the development of these services has triggered a rush to the cloud. However, just because we can outsource these services doesn’t mean that we always should, as noted in a recent article.

If you’re one of the many who have taken a “wait and see” attitude to virtual reality (VR) content creation, now may be the time to jump on board. Advocates who say VR won’t go the way of 3D TV were given more reasons to cheer last week — NBC announced it will provide 85 hours of 360° video from the 2016 Olympics in Rio next month.
It used to be Mick Jagger and the Stones singing “Satisfaction” — now it’s Adam Levine and Maroon 5 singing “Moves Like Jagger.” This is an example of how things change but always come back around.
