Learn from the Past, Excel in the Present and Change the Future – Exploring technology and business innovation and the implications for enterprise software implementation by understanding the rapidly changing software, business and technology landscape through summary, comparison, analysis and practical experience.
More and more enterprises are transferring their data into the cloud and excitement about scalability, cost-saving, improved data and customer management. With increasingly improved security management, cloud computing seems to be the ultimate solution of any IT problem.
The limiting factor for data transfer from Local Area Networks (LAN) into the cloud is b bandwidth.
Supercomputers, also referred to as High Performance Computing (HPC), is technology at the forefront of present processing abilities, particularly as being the fastest type of computing today.
Indeed, supercomputers are millions of times more powerful than regular traditional desktop computers Continue reading “Supercomputers” »
DNA computing uses chemical reactions to solve problems with DNA (deoxyribonucleic acids) strands acting as “bits”.
The pioneer of DNA computing is Leonard Adelman (University of Southern California) who in 1994 proposed that DNA computers (nanocomputers) can solve complex mathematical problems. He proved his concept by using DNA to solve the Hamiltonian path problem (Traveling Salesman Problem). Continue reading “DNA-Based Computation” »
Malicious software, or malware, means hostile, intrusive or annoying software, script or code that is designed to alter or damage computer operation, collect private and sensitive information and gain unauthorized access to computer systems. Continue reading “Cyber Security Threats III – Malware” »
Moving a software application to the cloud merely means running it in the web rather than on the traditional data center infrastructure.
The main advantages to migrate data and software operations to the cloud include Continue reading “Migrating the Cloud” »
Denial of Service (DoS) attack is a network attack that prevents users from accessing a website or service by overloading a web server with “useless” information.
Most of these compromised systems attack a single target by flooding it with a huge number of incoming messages in high frequency. Since a server can only process a certain amount of requests at once the attack overwhelms the processing capacity and forces the system to shut down, thus, rendering the website as inaccessible and denying the service to the real users. Continue reading “Cybersecurity Threats II – DoS and DDoS attacks” »
Manufacturing at the nanoscale is also called “molecular manufacturing” or “nanomanufacturing”. It involves scaled-up, reliable, clean and cost-effective manufacturing by moving atoms and molecules into desired nano-sized materials, structures, devices and/or systems to build immensely small electronic circuits and mechanical devices.
The development and use of such atomically precise manufacturing has the capability to radically change the manufacturing capabilities of the whole world. Continue reading “Nanotechnology in Manufacturing” »
