Future Technology Mega-Trends and How They Impact Data Protection

It’s been a while since I last blogged on my personal website, but I have not been idle. One of my main tasks last year as a lead technologist for data protection strategy at the office of the CTO was to analyze the future technology mega-trends that will shape IT (information technology) in the next decade and understand their implications on data protection solutions. It was an exciting journey, as I got to drill down into clouds, AI/ML (artificial intelligence and machine learning), edge computing and IoT (internet of things). I have learned how they all have impact above and beyond technology itself, as they affect the way we (humans) interact with technology and with intelligent machines. They change how we expect our systems to work and what we can and cannot do by ourselves (manually) in the complex, dymanic environment that emerges. This work has been summarized in a blog series that was recently published on Dell EMC website, which I will not copy here, but go check them out and let me know what you think. In part 1 and part 2 I explore the four major megatrends and how they impact the way we interact with technology, and in part 3 I derive the four pillars that are likely to be the foundation of future data protection solutions. Enjoy. #IWork4Dell
