Jamstack is a modern approach to develop and deploy websites at scale. This approach decouples the frontend from the backend and databases. The frontend is prebuilt into highly optimized static pages and assets using a Markup language such as HTML. Being static, these assets can be deployed on an edge platform for faster delivery. The backend applications that generate dynamic content are usually accessed using APIs, making pages rich and personalized.
This article explains what IoT is, its different forms and uses and its importance for the next digital revolution that we'll be going through, especially with the advent of 5G and the popularization of edge computing.
Healthcare today is in the midst of a digital transformation, with remote healthcare, online patient portals, and wearable IoT devices that enable remote patient monitoring transforming the industry. In recent years, many health companies have moved to the cloud to enable more scalability and better availability. But is the cloud capable of delivering all that’s needed for the future of healthcare?
Digital transformation has been one of the most debated terms for a while. And this debate is not in vain. Currently, any business in any industry must rely in large part on its technological infrastructure in order to stay at the forefront and compete in the market. However, not everyone knows what tools or models to choose. This often leads to maintaining legacy structures, indefinitely delaying the digital renewal process or making an investment in tools that do not meet the needs. They all mean falling behind in this very exhaustive race.
In recent years, the development of the human lifestyle has been conducted by rapid changes in technology and growing demand for digitized devices and services. That pace of change could be accelerated by new scientific discoveries, advances in technological tools (independent to the growth of knowledge, as we have limitations related to construction capacity), and the greater interest of the population in new fields such as artificial intelligence, Internet-of-Things (IoT), robotics, biotechnology, and nanotechnology. We have experienced these changes mainly since 2000 with the incorporation of communication technologies in health, engineering, economics, and transportation. Nowadays, it is almost impossible to consider it decoupled from our daily activities, whose main objective is to help us make decisions, simplify the administrative and technical processes, and improve the quality of the product or services.
Transforming a company is hard. So hard in fact, that major company-wide transformations are more likely to fail than succeed. And the odds are even slimmer for digital transformations. Whether you’re a traditional company trying to claw your way onto the world wide web, or a sleek digital enterprise that’s pouring every resource into staying cutting edge, major digital overhauls are a serious undertaking. Here’s the bad news: It just became even harder. Here’s the worse news: Change is inevitable and inescapable.
Edtechs and educational institutions need to think about the challenges and trends that online education will bring in the coming years, and ensure that their students have an optimized and uninterrupted usage experience, guarantee of information security and full engagement during the use of learning tools.
Right now, in the months before Black Friday, it is particularly vital for e-commerces wishing to stay competitive to ensure that they’ve done everything in their power to ready their system for the incoming flood of online purchases. That can include the piecemeal replacement of outdated tools in key areas like load balancing and caching, but if you’re looking for a more holistic approach to overhauling your system, this may be the perfect time to move your data to the edge, just in time to take advantage of it’s low latency power this holiday season.
What if Education and Technology could converge, resulting in only one thing? The name of this fusion would be: EdTech! Actually, this has already happened, and it is precisely this junction and its evolution over the years that we're going to discuss in this text.
