Say hello to SHIFT, our new publication about the future of mobility tech

We are facing a global climate crisis. Our world is changing and so must we, whether we like it or not. We must transition to cleaner fuels and rethink how we move around our towns, cities, and countries to have less of an impact on the environment, whilst still providing accessibility for all.

New mobility tech could help us reduce our environmental impact, improve road and city safety, and make how we get around in our daily lives more sustainable. 

We can fire up an app and hail a ride to take us into town, where we can use another

The new edge in edge computing

It wasn’t that long ago when with servers in our offices, we all had edge computing. Of course, we didn’t think of it that way. It was just what worked. Then, along came the cloud, and everything changed. Computers were hundreds of miles and milliseconds away. For our office applications, that level of latency’s OK. But with the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G, and our never-satisfied need for speed, a new kind of local computing, edge computing, is appearing.

And, it’s not just showing up as another technology du jour. Arpit Joshipura, The Linux Foundation‘s

When hybrid multicloud has technical advantages

Ask someone who has spent a big part of their career in IT operations managing data centers, and you’ll hear plenty of reasons why and where private clouds have advantages over public clouds. They’ll mention reliability, scalability, and security reasons and argue they can meet higher standards by having control in selecting, deploying, and managing the infrastructure.

Now ask a CIO, and they’ll have other reasons for considering private clouds and a hybrid multicloud architecture. They’ll provide rationales around the variability in public cloud costs, the need to support legacy systems for an extended period, and the realities of long-term
