Advisor to the Media & Entertainment Practice at DataArt, Micah Green: “Globalization is One of the Trends Shaping Media and Entertainment”
Is globalization good for companies and content creators? On the one hand, it is, because everyone is free to create the content he or she wants or needs. On the other hand, just imagine the number of competitors who are doing the same. And there are consumers whose available time is remaining static while the amount of content and ways to transmit that content are exploding. What should companies and content creators do? Read one proposed solution in the following interview with Micah Green.
Dmitry Bagrov, UK Managing Director of DataArt, spoke earlier this month at an event hosted by the Digital Leadership Forum. The event brought together over 100 digital leaders to explore the topic, “Digital Transformation Success Stories.”
This month I attended PegaWorld 2019, a technology conference hosted in Lаs Vegas by the digital transformation software company Pega. Highlights included talks by Alan Trefler, Pega CEO, and Jeanne Ross, director of the MIT Center for Information Systems Research (CISR).
DataArt is in the business of selling time to clients, time-to-market specifically. Let me explain how.
Time is an invisible resource that is part of each software project. Most of us think that we manage this asset just by having an established deadline. I’m afraid that is just the upper limit of using this valuable and precious resource.
DMEA, formerly known as conhIT, the leading digital health event in Europe, took place on 9-11 April in Berlin. DataArt participated as an exhibitor for the very first time.
Occupying Germany’s biggest exhibition center at Messe Berlin, DMEA exceeded all expectations in terms of turnout, topics covered, workshops and keynote addresses, including a speech by Jens Spahn, Germany’s Minister of Health. Spahn made an appeal for an increase in the pace of development for digital health solutions. The three-day convention attracted around 10,800 visitors, 570 exhibitors and 350 speakers, and served as a platform for digital healthcare.
Adopting cloud-native development increases:
- speed of software development and deployment
- productivity of teams doing systems development, systems support and IT operations, and
- ability to use leading-edge, cloud-native third-party services
“People trust us to allow them to sleep safely and securely. There’s a longstanding tradition of an innkeeper, that we fulfill that commitment to them. Has it extended naturally, with the same diligence, to the digital environment? Not always.” – John Burns, President of Hospitality Technology Consulting.
There are three misconceptions about the cloud. First, that it is secure by default; second, that you can migrate to it yourself; and third, that it’s water vapor.
Cloud in itself, as an infrastructure, is very secure. If Google, Microsoft and Linux experts cannot be trusted to do a good job then all hope is lost. They can be trusted, which is why cloud is secure. The best analogy to illustrate the concept is a country’s security. Borders are secured, monitored and patrolled – yet you still have to lock your car and home inside that secure country. The same goes for the cloud: you still need passwords, encryption, a firewall, etc.
