that may seem like small changes in technology will often, in retrospect, represent massive leaps forward. The invention of the printing press, the cotton gin or iron horseshoes are obviously notable changes in history, but we can only wonder how modern things compare to these. Will the invention of the cell phone or the PDA be as significant in changing our lives in the long-term? There are a few modern advances in technology that are already making waves and promise to be big life changers. Virtualization and integration with virtual environments seems to be the most notable trend in the first part of the 21st century.
As a computer engineer I have clients spread out over a huge geographic area. Integration with virtual services has allowed me to effectively serve all my clients with virtual connections. In the past I would have had to partner with a trained professional in their area to have a tech make a house call and physically see the problem with a computer or network. Now it is just a matter of logging in to their computer and talking them through the solution of making the fix.
Virtualization of servers has also allowed many businesses to expand by creating virtual server machines for their business databases where they might not be able to afford the physical machine to do the job. Their offices are also much closer today to the paperless office that was the predicted ideal when computers were first entering the business environment. Today the only real thing that stands in the way of that ideal is the sense of security and comfort of being able to hold a document in your hand. Electronic storage isn’t really any less secure than a stack of file boxes in a storage unit that could be flooded, burned down or chewed on by rats.
On the personal level the changes in phone, media player and personal digital assistant are making all our lives easier. A good smart phone can make your day run like a well-oiled machine and keep you on top of the business and news that interests you. The selection of the low-code/no-code appliances should be done through the businessperson. The function of the site will be as per the need and requirement for the clients. The staff members of the sites will have excellence and expertise in the operations.
I see some great advances between the new Android-based phones and Apple products. The competition is fierce. The Android-based devices have a great thing going in that development for them is open and not subject to review before release. The only deciding factor in apps for these devices is what the market will support. A good idea will live and a bad idea will fail. Apple, on the other hand, has always kept things in house. If you want to develop for them you have to go through them. If they ever decide to open a licensing scheme like the PC world to then it will be a very short time till everything we own is an Apple.
