9780131852150: Inescapable Data: Harnessing the Power of Convergence

* How "data everywhere" transforms business, technology, and the way you live * A pioneering look at grand, new efficiencies forthcoming As communications, computing, and data storage converge, data is becoming utterly ubiquitous...and that changes everything. In this book, two leading data management visionaries reveal how data transforms the way you do business, the technologies you use, the investments you make, the life you live, and the world you live in. Chris Stakutis and John Webster draw on interviews with nearly 50 leading experts: technologists, sociologists, entrepreneurs, consultants, researchers, media leaders, and futurists alike. You'll discover how today's "primordial soup" of wired and wireless gadgetry is quickly coalescing into something immensely more powerful, driving applications you thought were pure science fiction. You'll also gain deep insight into the profound implications of ubiquitous data capture: implications that touch everything from your bedroom to the battlefield: * The emerging "Connectivity Divide." Which side of the chasm are you on?* Inescapable data's technical components: Async communications, * pervasive computing devices, wireless, and XML * Global calendars, momentary enterprises: Transforming your life and business * Uncontrolled information availability: Its risks to your security and well-being * The future of technical infrastructure, grids, smart storage, and beyond * Radical, new modes of information delivery: Nonnumeric, nontextual, unobtrusive * Future tech: From holographic displays to fertility "wall clocks" * Your DNA on a chip: The heart of your personal health and wellness program A(c) Copyright Pearson Education.
