The world’s biggest annual showcase of next-generation technology and devices has kicked off in Las Vegas and 5G is a major talking point this year. Now in its 52nd year, CES is expected to attract more than 182,000 visitors and will include over 4,400 exhibitors across more than 250,000sqm of show floor. We have been attending CES for a number of years to ensure Telstra, and in turn, our customers remain at the forefront of technological innovation and trends. Attending CES 2019 is particularly important. 5G is expected to dominate this year’s CES, for good reason. 2019 is the year when all the talk becomes reality. Telstra now has 5G-enabled sites online in all major Australian cities and some regional centres, and we are ready to connect the first wave of 5G-enabled devices that will hit the market this year, giving Australians their first taste of the capabilities of this revolutionary technology.

Let’s start with a brief recap on cloud native and CNCF – Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

The right IT infrastructure is hybrid

Article | March 4, 2020

From time to time, we invite industry thought leaders to share their opinions and insights on current technology trends on the IBM Systems IT Infrastructure blog. The opinions in these posts are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of IBM. Gartner forecasts worldwide public cloud revenue will grow 17 percent in 2020[1]. While it’s clear that cloud is still being rapidly adopted, on premises and private cloud are growing as well. My team and I see this on a daily basis as we visit with enterprise clients. To quantify this information and measure its impact, IBM recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate how organizations develop and implement their IT infrastructure strategies. Forrester conducted an online survey of 350 global enterprise IT decision makers across industries to explore this topic.
