Disruptive technology or evolution?

disruptive technology or evolution special research report Photo by
The motor car, mobile phones, personal computers, and so on, are all examples of disruptive technologies. There are numerous examples throughout modern business history of disruptive technologies appearing, apparently from nowhere, to threaten and ultimately displace existing technologies and the industries and vendors that grew up around them – such as the mainframe industry, communications and storage. But disruption is rarely a consequence of technology innovation alone, rather a reflection of how existing organizations and markets deal with it. While disruptive innovation can be seen as a threat, it is also an ...
seeds, plant leaves, or anything else that has DNA-containing cells. Because the sequence data that is produced can be quite large (for example, there are approximately six billion base pairs in each human diploid genome), genomic data is stored electronically and requires a large amount of computing power and storage capacity. Full genome sequencing would have been nearly impossible before the advent of the microprocessor , computers , and the Information Age . Full genome sequencing should thus not be confused with DNA profiling . The latter only determines the likelihood that genetic material came from a particular individual ...
A Simple Cure to the Web's Effect on Your Concentration | Science News
The Internet is rerouting pathways in our brains, researchers say, pushing aside the attentive mind of the book reader in favor of the distracted mind of the screen watcher. Author Nicholas Carr thinks that awareness may be the antidote to this Faustian swap. “Psychological studies show we have an enormous desire for new information and we have an enormous desire to be socially connected,” he said. “The Web plays to our desire to be inundated with information, particularly small bits of information. Were not adapting to this medium against our will.” Carrs new book, “The Shallows: What the Internet ... market research, surveys and trends
Green Car Congress: IBM Almaden Researchers Say Li-Air Batteries ...
Four different architectures of Li-air batteries, which all assume the use of lithium metal as the anode. The three liquid electrolyte architectures are aprotic, aqueous, and a mixed aprotic-aqueous system. In addition, a fully solid state architecture is also given. Credit, ACS, Girishkumar et al. Click to enlarge. While the practical energy density of Li-air batteries could approach that of gasoline—after factoring in tank-to-wheel efficiencies—and thereby enable a transition to an electrified road transportation system, there are challenges facing the development of commercial Li-air batteries and the current understanding of ... market research, surveys and trends


Cloud Services: Technology Evolution or Business Revolution ...
Some business leaders think cloud computing is the next big disruptive technology. Others argue it’s simply the natural evolution of distributed computing, requiring the same basic capabilities that have always been necessary for high-performing businesses. So which is it – technology evolution or business revolution? And why should you care?  Here’s the debate: Just another technology evolution. Cloud computing is important, but it’s not that big a deal. IT outsourcing focuses on various layers of the technology stack. Cloud computing focuses on enabling specific business capabilities. Cloud computing matters only to CIOs. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
NEWSWEEK Poll: 90% Believe in God - Newsweek
Rick Warren is as big as a bear, with a booming voice and easygoing charm. Sam Harris is compact, reserved and, despite the polemical tone of his books, friendly and mild. Warren, one of the best-known pastors in the world, started Saddleback in 1980; now 25,000 people attend the church each Sunday. Harris is softer-spoken; paragraphs pour out of him, complex and fact-filled—as befits a Ph.D. student in neuroscience. At NEWSWEEK's invitation, they met in Warren's office recently and chatted, mostly amiably, for four hours. Jon Meacham moderated. Excerpts follow. JON MEACHAM: Rick, since you're the home team, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Storage in a Virtualized Environment
Business in the 21st century is becoming increasingly data-centric. Companies are both creating and consuming growing amounts of data to build more complex products and services, operate rapidly globalizing organizations, and make informed business decisions. The result has been a proliferation of applications and data  that threatens to overwhelm IT organizations. For many, IT budgets and staffing have simply not kept pace. Server virtualization has emerged as a key technology that allows IT to do more with less – deploy less hardware and increase IT flexibility in provisioning new servers and clients.
