Deloitte has submitted its report Technology, Media & Telecommunications 2023with the consultant’s predictions in the areas of technology and communications for the next year 2023. In addition, the consultant foresees a market growth for companies in edge computing in 2023 of 22%a notable increase if we compare it with the 6% that the business IT market is expected to grow in the same period.

The edge computing area is going to be one of the areas that registers the most movement next year. According to Deloitte, companies and organizations are likely to invest in hardware first, with investments in software and services to follow as the market matures. Regarding the use of the cloud, Deloitte warns that the more data is used, the more expensive it will be to use. And they will increase, because according to the consultant, by 2025 no less than 175 Zetabytes of data will be used.

Hyperscalers, that is, organizations that have the architecture to scale globally, see the edge as an addition to their cloud services, and may in the future decide to hold off on expanding their cloud platforms to offer cloud computing platforms. edge on your customers’ hardware to prevent such deterioration.

As for telecom providers, they may also start offering edge computing solutions. Sometimes they do it in collaboration with hyperscalers and thus manage to connect centralized clouds with data centers, servers and devices on premises of companies.

For their part, infrastructure equipment providers can see, thanks to this, how new opportunities are opening up for them. The main ones, such as HPE, Cisco or Dell have already begun to offer new edge computing solutions to the cloud. This sometimes manifests itself through these vendors’ shift in focus from hardware to software.

Faced with all this, various cloud management platforms for the edge. They provide an abstraction layer for management between the deployment and the providers and applications involved. The sector, yes, in the future will have more centralized tools, KPIs and control panels designed for diverse and hybrid environments.

Application programming interfaces, already common, are also becoming more standardized. Since they are vendor independent, they can drive interoperability. In addition, they reflect the trend of moving from hardware to software, as network functions, and certain features, are implemented through code rather than infrastructure with increasing frequency.

For Deloitte, 5G networks will also be in 2023 one of the determining aspects in business connectivity. Including virtualized 5G, which uses software-based network functions instead of some that were traditionally handled by hardware. In addition, the consultant suggests that the amount of mobile network operators currently investing in 5G could go from 100 in 2022 to a minimum of 200 by the end of 2023. On the other hand, the markets for edge computing and mobile private networks, for Deloitte, are developing hand in hand.

By 2023 there will be about 5,000 broadband satellites in Earth orbit, according to the consultant’s predictions. This could be a problem for the industry, as turning space into a common use point will require more collaboration between organizations. This could lead to the appearance and growth of new related sectors, such as those dedicated to positional perception in space, the offer of satellite services in orbit and the removal of space debris.

This is due to an ever-increasing drive for high-speed Internet connections. Companies using commercial data satellites want to offer high-speed connectivity to their customers around the world. And if everything continues to evolve as they see it at Deloitte in the development of Low Earth Orbit (LEO), by 2030 there could be 7-10 operational networks using these satellites, with 40,000-50,000 LEO satellites operational.

Edge adoption, however, has slowed down a bit recently. Deloitte identifies as a cause several barriers that can lead to slower adoption of these Technologys and processes. Enterprises will continue to need to assess exactly how to reorganize their cloud, network, and data center strategies. Also determine what combination of methods work best for your specific needs.

Edge providers are also noticing that the sector is becoming saturated. Many enter into agreements to anticipate the future and continue to serve the same customers in the future. Each can offer a different value proposition or part of the process instead of competing.

According to Deloitte, edge computing business will likely be supported by agreements and ecosystems, and not end-to-end solution providers in all cases. It must also be taken into account that this sector is not safe from the effects of the crisis that is looming over the world economy. And overall, Deloitte’s 2023 predictions show that both consumers and businesses will have to do more with less due to uncertainty caused by inflation pressures, supply chain issues and certain world events.

EIZO ColorEdge CS2400S

The EIZO ColorEdge CS2400S is a monitor aimed at professionals that mounts a 24.1-inch panel and has, as you may have imagined, a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. Its maximum brightness is 410 cd/m2, it has a contrast of 1,350:1, it reproduces 1,070 million colors and it is capable of covering the 99% of the Adobe RGB color space.

This EIZO model brings a series of clear improvements over the previous generation. Among the most important changes we can highlight the inclusion of a USB Type-C connector, that offers up to 70 watts of charge, and that we can use to charge a laptop while we use it with said monitor (simultaneous data and power).

Another important addition to the EIZO ColorEdge CS2400S is that it comes with an adjustment report that measures the state of the screen at the time of shipment, a feature that previously it was only available on CG series professional monitors.

Maintaining its commitment to the environment, EIZO has eliminated any type of plastic from the packaging and materials that accompany the wiring. This monitor is also more efficient, as it It has a consumption of only 26 watts.

The rest of its specifications are completed with a response time of 19ms, it has DisplayPort and HDMI outputs, it has a USB Type-C connector, as we have already said, it has two USB 3.0 and it has two other USB 2.0 ports. we can use it both horizontally and verticallysomething that the most creative professionals will undoubtedly like.

This monitor is mainly aimed at content creators, designers, video and photo editors, illustrators and cartoonists. It is height, swivel and tilt adjustable, which translates into good ergonomics and great versatility when it comes to integrating into different work spaces.

The EIZO ColorEdge CS2400S comes with a 5-year warranty covering each and every component, and is also subject to the zero bad pixel policy, which is covered for six months from the launch date. Taking into account the investment that we have to make to buy this monitor, it is totally normal, since its price in Spain will be around 800 euro.

Microsoft Extends ESU Support for Windows Server 2008 and R2

Avatar of Thomas Grimm



Windows Server 2008

When an operating system ends its life cycle, Microsoft usually considers the possibility of offering extended support, which usually ends up being paid, or may be subject to some type of special condition. The latter is what has happened with Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2, two operating systems that have ended their life cycle and are no longer supported in 2020.

The thing is that Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 still have a significant user baseand for this reason Microsoft has decided an additional year of support of the ESU type, acronym for “extended security updates”. This is good news for companies that still use the operating system, but it has one important condition, and that is that it will only be available to those who are Microsoft Azure customers.

This extended period of security updates will be active until January 9, 2024. If you are wondering if this will be a free program, I can tell you that it is not, and that Microsoft will bill it as it normally does with extended support programs.

In case you are wondering why so many professionals are still using Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 the answer is very simple, because in more than one case upgrading to a new operating system requires significant expenses that can derive from a hardware renewal, from a prolonged period of inactivity, from updating and developing new applications if necessary or from a little of everything that we have just said.

Microsoft has confirmed all the versions of Windows Server 2008 that will be able to benefit from this year of extended support, and we have listed them as is:

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and 2008 Service Pack 2 (SP2).
  • Windows Embedded POSReady 7.
  • Windows Embedded Standard 7.
  • All Azure virtual machines (VMs) running Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 operating systems on Azure, Azure Stack, Azure VMWare Solutions, or Azure Nutanix Solution.

It does not seem that they are going to give more extensions once this is finished, so if your company is using any of those operating systems you should be clear that time is running out, and that in a matter of a year you will be tied to an operating system without support that could become a time bomb in terms of security.

Apple will abolish the position of Head of Product Design

Apple suprimira el puesto de Jefe de Diseno de Producto

The departure of Jonathan Ive from Apple was one of the most shocking news of 2019, not in vain are we talking about what was Head of Product Design in that company, responsible for some of its most successful products, and a professional who was part of the bitten apple company for more than 30 years.

It is true that at first there was no complete break between Ive and Applesince both continued to work together through an independent agency founded by the former executive, but in the end both parties decided to put an end to their adventure, and a final separation was confirmed last July.

The position that Ive left was filled by Evans Hankey, but we know that this executive also plans to leave the company in the coming months. What will happen then with the position of Head of Product Design? The normal thing would be to look for a new professional that lives up to that position, but according to a new report presented by Bloomberg it won’t be like that.

The apple company will abolish the position of Head of Product Design, and the product design team will report to and report directly to Apple’s COO, Jeff Williams. To avoid internal problems, Apple will give more important roles to the designers of key products for the apple company, but it seems that this has not been liked by everyone, and that some employees are upset with Apple’s decision.

The truth is that, if we analyze the situation that existed previously, it is not as important a change as it might seem at first glance. Evans Hankey acts as the liaison for the design team, but in the end it depended on Jeff Williams and had to answer to himso with this move Apple would be eliminating an intermediate position that in the end would not be “essential”, and would simplify the hierarchical structure of the product design team.

It is also important to note that this change reinforces the position of Jeff Williams, a high-profile executive at Apple who many see as Tim Cook’s possible successor. We’ll see how the situation evolves, and if Apple is really able to get on without a Head of Product Design.
