Fifth-generation (5G) wireless broadband is no longer a future technology - it’s here and is already available in limited key metropolitan areas in South Africa. The country, with its limited internet access and infrastructure, high data costs and ailing economy, can benefit in multiple ways from 5G.
For those who survived the initial shock of the COVID-19 crisis, the question is: Now what? Since there is no going back to business as usual, it is time for companies to turn the page and concentrate on planning for mid- to long-term priorities.
Over the last few decades, technology has slowly shaped our world into one our grandparents wouldn’t recognise. Some of that change has been about the gadgets in our homes and in our pockets. Much else has been driven by researchers and scientists using powerful supercomputers to answer life‑changing questions and make ground-breaking discoveries in life sciences, physics, chemistry, and astronomy.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has been a hot topic for a number of years, but the pervasive and affordable connectivity required for successful deployment has held back its progress. This is rapidly changing, with the rollout of fibre to the home, 5G and even Elon Musk’s recently launched Starlink satellite.
At the dawn of computer security in the late 1980s, antivirus software emerged as a response to the first malware. Since then, the industry has been playing catch-up, and the challenge for cyber-defence solutions has been to recognise new malware and techniques as quickly as possible and offer the appropriate protection.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is no flash-in-the-pan hyped-up tech, it’s the future of connectivity and collaboration in a freshly minted digital world. Digital transformation. Over the past year, this term has rapidly left behind its buzzword status to become a key business enabler in a world defined by pandemic restrictions and new requirements to monitor and manage systems and facilities remotely.
Most people’s first association with voice recognition technology is Siri, Apple’s now-ubiquitous personal assistant. 10 years on though, the possibilities of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning initiatives suggest that voice integration has a bright future ahead.
Downsizing, remote working and interacting with customers online have become part of the daily grind. And with the Third Wave of infections upon us, those organisations who have not yet modernised their technology environments will find it increasingly difficult to survive.
The pace at which digital transformation has swept across industries continues to increase rapidly in response to COVID-19. There is no doubt that many businesses across all sectors have leapfrogged several years of progress within a matter of months.
