Smart industry is putting data front and center
Smart industry is putting data front and center

The industrial world is rapidly changing with the emergence of smart industry. This fact requires several domains, including software engineering, IT, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering, to work together concurrently and evolve the way of designing, testing, and verifying machine software to reach the expected level of functionality and quality.

Consolidation in the semiconductor industry continues, sort of. This time, it’s not a semiconductor vendor acquiring another, but instead acquiring a software vendor.

3D printing: From makerspaces to manufacturing
3D printing: From makerspaces to manufacturing

3D printing isn’t an entirely new manufacturing method. It’s been around since the early 1980s. It’s really come into its own in the last five years or so, however, starting with hobbyists, then evolving into something that more serious maker pros used to make decorations and one-off parts for their “crazy” projects.

What exactly is software-defined storage?
What exactly is software-defined storage?

“Software-defined storage” (SDS) is one of those terms where if you ask ten people for the definition, you’ll get at least eight different answers. It clearly creates some confusion (is that an oxymoron?). The biggest reason for the confusion is that it’s a term that’s still evolving. Hence, it changes on a regular basis.

The pluses and minuses of IoT data

One of the great things about the Internet of Things is the amount of data that you can compile with your application. One of the difficulties associated with the IoT is the amount of data that you can compile with your application. That’s my opinion, and I discussed this issue with Dan Glotter, the Founder and CEO Optimal+ in this week’s Five Minutes with … feature.
