Tying Technology with Service

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

Technology is a constantly changing and evolving concept which due to the efforts of today’s society, has become the mainstream for how we all communicate, view the world, and how we envision the future. This science of technology is a concept that was first started with the invention of the first wheel all the way up to us putting a man on the moon. The mother of invention is the thoughts and dreams that people begin to put into research and development of their ideas to make them tangible. A few of the more comprehensive results of technology is the cloud which are technically data centers spread across the world which help to reduce on the cost of hardware being purchased by companies and the overhead of having to pay administrators to maintain the equipment. This new feature which companies and government agencies alike are moving toward is changing the technological landscape.

The services which were once thought of as mundane or no respect that was given to Information Technology are no longer the overlooked or mediocre jobs. Information Technology professionals are now some of the most highly paid individuals that not only maintain a company, but also push that company ahead in an everchanging market. From software architects, engineers, project managers, and even down to the help desk person all play a part in ensuring that a company that has these individuals can compete against other organizations. From answering simple questions to creating designs to implement, all levels of Information Technology all have a process to get the product or service completed.

Many looked back to the 80’s or 90’s to see how the world viewed technology as a video tape player or a Walkman and a television set. The computer which was once depicted to be used by nerds with pocket protectors are now the Wolves of Wall Street or the Steve Jobs of the world. Getting in to where society is headed at an early stage is always an opportunity which knocks for everyone that is interested in Information Technology.  The most beautiful aspect of Information Technology is that even with all the inventions and progress that has been made, there is still plenty more to go. By saying that there is plenty more to go, it simply means that the possibilities of technology today are endless.

A recap on just a few months this year are the unveiling of the iPhone X which is taking the Apple community by storm and said to change the way how users interact with their smartphone for years to come. Another new revelation is the first commercial flight to the moon will take place in 2018 through Space X which is owned by Elon Musk. Elon Musk which coincidentally is the CEO for Tesla, America’s number electric car producer, oversees the Hyperloop which is on the verge of being put into mainstream.  There are so many inventions and advancements that are taking place by the moment that these are some very interesting times to be in.

Step Aside Amazon Alexa and Google Home, here is Microsoft’s “Invoke”!

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Amazon started the trend of voice assistants built into a speaker that has taken flight and given the market a new meaning to voice activated shopping, music, event planning, and more. Amazon originally put this technology in the Amazon Echo in 2015 and three years later, they have developed the technology into Alexa, which is a much larger speaker plus added a lot more features. Alexa has the ability to work with other apps including integrate with Smart home devices via some nifty integrated application features.

 

Since Amazon’s introduction of Echo and Alexa, the competition market has picked up by other large companies such as Google which has come out with Google Home to compete against the rise in Amazon’s Alexa and Echo. Since the launch of Google Home in 2016, it has managed to grab a large part of the market by enabling many of the same Amazon features, but with the Google app store integration and Google Assistant. These two large competitors have managed to dominate the voice assistant market since its launch by Amazon a few years ago.

 

There is a new competitor on the market that has taken notes from the defects and short comings of Amazon and Google, to come out with a more optimal device. Microsoft has stepped into the market and pledges to have more features, more integration, and less defects than the current line of Amazon Echo and Alexa. It promises to be more reliable than the current Google Home. Microsoft’s version of the voice assistant is dubbed “Invoke”. Invoke is built by Harmon Kardon and packs a huge plethora of Microsoft technology under the belt.

Invoke will be powered by Cortana as the voice assistant with a cylinder shape similar to that of Amazon’s Alexa. Microsoft services will be integrated such as Skype for business to make voice calls at a mere command or accept and announce them with stereo sound throughout the room.  Cortana will have the latest features such as keeping up with calendars, meetings, reading emails, and ordering from the Microsoft app store.  Bing will be utilized as the search agent of choice as this is a Microsoft flagship product, it will have the bells and whistles of Microsoft’s major product integrations making it easy to transition from voice to pc and more.

 

With this device being made available to the public in the Fall of 2017, Microsoft is said to have a “killer feature” that is said to change the game in the voice assistant industry. Google and Amazon are on edge to find out what this new feature is that Microsoft is to unveil with their new flag ship for technology. Microsoft is gearing up to push for this device to its 145 million Windows 10 Cortana base to in an attempt to offset the Amazon and Google market. However, with Invoke not scheduled to be revealed until Fall of 2017, Google and Amazon have time to instill many upgrades in anticipation of this new adversary on the market.
