Summit Forum auf der Computex Taipei 2014 geht zu Ende

Das Summit Forum der Computex Taipei 2014 wurde vom taiwanesischen Außenhandelsbüro organisiert und dem Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) ausgerichtet. Es fand im Rahmen der 2014-Auflage der jährlichen Computex Taipei Expo statt, eine international beachtete Fachmesse für Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie (ICT). Am Summit Forum beteiligten sich Branchengrößen wie Stan Shih, der Chairman von Acer Chairman, Tsai Ming-kai, der Chairman von Mediatek, Simon Segars, CEO von ARM Holdings und Shane Owenby, APAC Managing Director von Amazon Web Services. Die vier Führungspersönlichkeiten waren eingeladen, ihre Einsichten zum Internet der Dinge (Internet of Things, IoT) und Cloud-Services zu erörtern und sich zum Thema: „Integration von Hardware und Software für ein intelligentes Internet der Dinge“ zu äußern, um den Besuchern aus allen Teilen der Welt ein Bild der neuesten Entwicklungen der Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie aus einer globalen Perspektive zu vermitteln.

In seinem Vortrag stellte TAITRA-Generalsekretär Huang Wen-jung fest, dass die vielen bahnbrechenden Neuerungen, die mobile Computer und Cloud-Technologien während der vergangenen Jahre ausgelöst haben, eine brandneue Phase für die globale ITC-Branche einläuteten. In diesem Zusammenhang erklärten sogar die internationale Marktforschungsgesellschaft McKinsey und US-Präsident Barack Obama, dass mobile Computertechnologien und Cloud-Systeme als die Grundlage des sogenannten „Internet der Dinge“ im Begriff seien, die Lebensweisen der Menschheit radikal zu verändern.

Auf der Veranstaltung erklärte Stan Shih, wie Acer seine Erfahrung in der Bereitstellung von Hardware und Softwarediensten zur beschleunigten Einführung seines BYOC-Service („Build Your Own Cloud“) nutzte, um Acer als einen ausgereiften Anbieter von „Hardware+ Software + Services“ zu etablieren. Darüber hinaus erklärte er wie Acer beabsichtigt, mit seinen Zulieferern und Vertriebspartnern als Partner zusammenzuarbeiten, um eine neue Wertschöpfungskette aufzubauen. Shih bat außerdem Tsai Ming-kai von Mediatek für ein Foto auf die Bühne und äußerte seine Zuversicht, dass die zukünftigen Beziehungen zwischen ihren beiden Unternehmen eine bessere IoT-Erfahrung für die Verbraucher schaffen werden.

Tsai betonte die entscheidende Rolle, die Taiwan mit seiner starken Wettbewerbsposition in Bereichen wie der Hardwareherstellung, der Produktentwicklung und dem Servicegeschäft während der vergangenen drei Jahrzehnte in der Entwicklung der globalen ICT-Branche gespielt hat. Während die Welt von Cloud 1.0 auf Cloud 2.0 übergeht, müssen taiwanesische Akteure zusammenarbeiten, um den positiven Kreislauf des Mooreschen Gesetzes aufrechtzuerhalten und den technologischen Fortschritt der Halbleiterbranche weiterzuführen.

Simon Segars ging in seinem Redebeitrag ausführlich auf die Wichtigkeit der Innovation ein. Angefangen mit dem jahrhundertealten Hersteller der ikonischen Jelly Bean erläuterte er, wie die Innovation in den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen, von der Autoindustrie bis hin zur Elektronikbranche, der Schlüssel für den Gewinn von Kunden ist. Am Beispiel der Fernüberwachung von Hunden zuhause sprach Segar außerdem über verschiedene IoT-Anwendungen und Möglichkeiten für deren Kommerzialisierung.

Laut Shane Owenby liegt der Schlüssel für den spektakulären Erfolg, den Amazon Web Services (AWS) in nur fünf Jahren erzielte, in der Größenordnung. Dank seiner Größenordnung war AWS in der Lage, seinen Kunden gewaltige Kapazitäten zu erschwinglichen Preisen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Darüber hinaus erklärte Owenby, wie AWS Privatpersonen, Unternehmen, Behörden, Schulen etc. hochgradig maßgeschneiderte Cloud-Lösungen anbieten kann.

Auf dem Summit Forum untersuchte Simon Chang, der Minister für Wissenschaft und Technologie gemeinsam mit den vier anderen Referenten die Gelegenheiten, die für Taiwan bestehen. Im Hinblick auf die Entstehung des IoT sollten Großunternehmen nach Ansicht von Shih Plattformen einrichten, die jungen Taiwanern helfen, ihre Fähigkeiten zu entwickeln und zu präsentieren. Andererseits unterstrich Tsai, dass sich Unternehmen aus Taiwans Produktketten eingehend überlegen müssen, wie sie ihre Wettbewerbsfähigkeit durch verschiedene Arten von Konsolidierungen steigern könnten. Segars empfahl, dass Taiwan seine Talente im Bereich der Halbleitertechnologie auf den IoT-Sektor ausrichten sollte. Tatsächlich war dies einer der Gründe, die RAM veranlassten, sein CPU-Entwicklungszentrum in Taiwan anzusiedeln. Owenby hingegen forderte Taiwan auf, seine Innovationskapazität weiter zu fördern, um auf globaler Ebene wettbewerbsfähig zu bleiben.

Die vier Referenten sprachen nahezu fünf Stunden auf der Veranstaltung. Sie umrissen nicht nur ein informatives Bild, wie das menschliche Leben in fünf bis zehn Jahren aussehen könnte, sondern gaben auch faszinierende Einblicke in Möglichkeiten, auf welche die globale IT-Branche Cloud-Technologien in ihre Geschäftsstrategien einbinden könnte. Das Summit Forum auf der Computex Taipei 2014 war mit Sicherheit eines der zukunftsrelevantesten Technologieereignisse dieses Jahres.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
