    Were you one of the hundreds of thousands of people who moved your workouts to the basement with a Peloton in the last 2 years?  Guess what – you probably shared your personal information with the world. Or maybe you had to start using a mobile health app to communicate with your doctor.  Your sensitive data could have been accessed…

    When integrations become insights

    As the value of data visibility as a differentiator becomes more evident, there remains the challenge of connecting to vastly different apps and data sources, wherever they are. Almost all types of work involve some form of exchanging data. And when those exchanges are automated, they’re often handled as hybrid integrations between applications, data sources, and systems.

    Smart Speakers are dumb without Integration and APIs

    Even as human interaction grows more and more digital (Zoom, Teams, etc.), there is another conversationalist entering the picture in a big way: Voice-activated technology through smart speakers. As of this year, a total of 53 million users will have a voice assistant or smart speaker. That’s double the number in US homes since 2018, just for residential use. But even as…

    With microservices and APIs, you get what you ordered

    The other day I was ordering a new jacket from a popular website. The process was efficient and friendly; I was able to find, configure and pay for exactly the jacket I wanted in less than 10 minutes. That’s when things went wrong. Apparently, this was an in-demand jacket and, even though it appeared to be available, the warehouse was…

    Plan for change in an unpredictable future

    Here’s a quiz: What do these five things have in common? A puppy, an RV, a bicycle, a kayak and lysol spray. The answer is that they’re all things you can’t get anymore without a large bank balance or an inside connection. Six months ago, you would never have been able to predict the scarcity of these seemingly disconnected items.…
