While all four maturing digital trends – Mobile, Cloud, Delivery Optimization, Process Optimization — are interconnected, Cloud appears to be the one to make the technology c-suite (CISO, CTO and CDO) most nervous. But the potential upside of Cloud adoption brings tremendous synergy in operating costs and also helps propel innovation.
Digitalization is forcing the convergence of networks and platforms that have traditionally remained separate. Mobile networks have previously been the domain of telecommunications providers, but as new mobile generations emerge the reach of the network is also becoming an enterprise domain.
We spoke with Thomas Magedanz, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the Technische Universität Berlin and Director of the software-based networks competence center at Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS, about the expectations for 5G networks, why 5G technologies are being tested with Smart Cities applications and how standards can drive the global network interoperability that 5G will require. Thomas was a keynote speaker at The Open Group Berlin 2017 in April.
Making Standards Work® for Smart Cities was the theme of The Open Group Berlin 2017 event. The focus was on how an architecture framework such as TOGAF®, an Open Group standard, can help administrations govern the introduction of smart systems to enable their citizens and businesses to thrive and prosper.
