New Technologies for New Problems

People told me before Personal Computer could not do something like their mini-computers.

People told me before Internet could not transport information like their Client / Server network.

People told me before Cloud Computing could not be as secure as their own data centers.

People told me before NoSQL or DLT could not manage data like their own RDBMS.

They didn’t tell me though, they actually needed new technologies to solve new problems.

Greatest Ignorance …

You know what, it took me a long time to explain what was …

  • Acoustic coupler modem
  • Personal Computer
  • Relational Database
  • Object Oriented Programming
  • Internet and Website
  • Public Key Infrastructure
  • Cloud computing
  • Blockchain
  • Web3

Guess I did a poor job in explaining these technologies as not many were convinced.

Still … I’m a big believer of “The greatest ignorance is to reject something you know nothing about.”

What’s the Password ?

The day you know passphrase is more secure than password.

Someone : “What’s the WiFi password?”
Bartender : “You need to buy a drink first.”

Someone : “Okay, I’ll have a coke.”
Bartender : “Is 7-Up okay?”

Someone : “Sure. How much is that?”
Bartender : “$28.”

Someone : “There you go, keep the change. So what’s the WiFi password?”
Bartender : “You need to buy a drink first. No spaces, all lowercase.”

The Cost of Not Doing It …

So you have a big infrastructure in your data center(s), and your team appreciates the benefits of running your business in the cloud – better agility, security governance, patch management and TCO.

And yet, you hesitate in moving forward … Trust us, nothing is more important than a missed opportunity. The opportunity to transform your business, the opportunity to minimize the cost of not doing it.
