THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS INDUSTRY EMBRACES CLOUD-NATIVE ENGINEERING

whitePaper | February 24, 2022

Cloud-native engineering empowers organizations to design and develop scalable, agile, cost-effective applications and run them in dynamic environments such as on-premises or in public, private, or hybrid clouds. A cloud-native application consists of microservices working together in an application that can be scaled easily. These microservices are often packaged in code along with libraries and dependencies to run anywhere. In a cloud-native app, the application code is designed, built, and delivered very differently than it would be for conventional, monolithic apps. Cloud-native engineering enables loosely coupled systems that are resilient, manageable, and observable to be combined with robust automation, allowing engineers to make changes frequently.

INTERNET OF THINGS IN CONSTRUCTION

whitePaper | February 27, 2022

The term Internet of Things has become increasingly popular over the last few years, although it has actually existed for a long time, i.e., going back many years. It is probably one of the most talked about technological developments in the construction industry at the moment. But how far away are we from actually using and benefiting from the Internet of Things in construction? How complex is it and what can you do with it? Or perhaps how do you get ready for it if the Internet of Things is to change the industry considerably in the coming years?

AI Requires Tailored DRAM Solutions

whitePaper | April 6, 2020

For over 30 years, DRAM has continuously adapted to the needs of each new wave of hardware spanning PCs, game consoles, mobile phones and cloud servers. AI/ML may be the biggest challenge yet. Artificial intelligence is the study and application of providing hardware and software that attempt to emulate human intelligence. Therefore, as human beings adapt to different tasks, AI must adapt. Indeed, if AI is to scale to the diversity of human tasks, it will not be via a single, monolithic solution. For every task a human can perform, AI must adapt through a unique combination of hardware and software components.

Digital Twin Cities: Framework and Global Practices

whitePaper | April 20, 2022

The continued growth and success of cities is one of the great triumphs of modern civilization. Cities are home to the majority of the world’s population and generate more than 80% of GDP. Rapid urbanization has also brought about new challenges as cities have struggled with congestion, pollution, increased carbon emissions, inequity and exposure to natural disasters such as floods and storms. The COVID-19 pandemic and climate change have further intensified these issues. The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out the goal of “building inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and communities”. Whereas these goals may be universally accepted, the path to get there is not as clear. Innovation and empowerment of digital technology are critical to transforming our cities. Policy support and institutional change are also essential.
