      Hotel in-room tech raises a glass to automatic wine

      The hi-tech guest experience in hotel rooms has so far been limited mainly to just a handful of items. Guests can automatically open or close the curtains, watch TV on their bathroom mirrors, stream a device to the big television, toggle the temperature from a tablet, book activities and services, etc. But the tech is now shifting to how guests can manage the food and beverage element of their in-room experience.

      Chatbots in Hospitality: The What, the Why, the How | By Amy Allen

      These days, chatbots are the Next Big Thing in mainstream tech. This should come as no surprise: humans have been tinkering with the idea of robots for centuries.

      For hoteliers, automation has been held up as a panacea to productivity issues, a solution to labor costs, a way to ensure consistent, streamlined production processes across the board — and chatbots in particular have gotten a lot of attention from the hospitality industry in recent months.

      IoT deployments will require latest automation, networking technology

      Many enterprises are thinking about or already deploying Internet of Things solutions, but IoT deployments won't be easy or cheap. In fact, IoT will require the latest in automation and wireless network technology to pull off. [ click to tweet] That is the view of Kenneth Dilbeck, vice president of collaboration research and development at the TM Forum, a non-profit association of digital economy firms.

    8. Embedding SDN in the Enterprise

      Embedding SDN in the Enterprise

      Most enterprises are wondering how to reap the benefits of SDN and how to embed it in their enterprise IT strategies. For starters, the challenge for most IT infrastructure organizations is that SDN is part of a broader automation push in the data center and beyond. That push crosses domains and must be linked to business problems.

      What is needed is simplicity in the physical enterprise networking stack, and effective virtualization, security, and effective and simple automation to streamline programmability as well as providing effective integration with (virtual) compute, networking, and storage for minimal complexity.

    9. How automation could take your skills -- and your job

      How automation could take your skills -- and your job

      Nicholas Carr's essay IT Doesn't Matter in the Harvard Business Review in 2003, and the later book, argued that IT is shifting to a service delivery model comparable to electric utilities. It produced debate and defensiveness among IT managers over the possibility that they were sliding to irrelevancy. It's a debate that has yet to be settled. 

      The Glass Cage, a new book by Nicholas Carr should give IT managers pause about the rush to automation.

      Mobile UC Needs More Control For Contact Recipients

      One of the key changes taking place with mobile business communications, is that, in addition to facilitating all modes of person-to-person contacts, it is also enabling real-time “push” notifications from communication services and automated business process applications (CEBP). Such notifications can take a variety of forms, depending on how things are set up for the user’s mobile device.

      You're Fast? Great. Are You Efficient?

      Jumping hurdles at record speed doesn't mean much if you stroll between them. IT leaders must eliminate process-driven delays or trip on DevOps and SDN efforts.

      There's a lot of focus lately on software-defined architectures. SDN, SDDC, cloud, and DevOps all share a primary component: the ability to improve the speed of application deployments. Each technology takes a slightly different path to get there, but they all leverage the power of abstraction and programmability.

    12. ‘SDN’ Doesn’t Mean Having to Learn How to Program

      ‘SDN’ Doesn’t Mean Having to Learn How to Program

      Just because network operations are moving to a DevOps model doesn’t mean everybody has to learn how to program.

      That was the consensus I was hearing at Interop last week, as I kept trying to stir up conversation about software-defined networking (SDN) taking away jobs. Job loss is always a concern when someone starts talking about automating tasks, but some of the people involved in running networks are convinced it won’t play out that way.

    13. Will SDN Leave Network Engineers Jobless?

      Will SDN Leave Network Engineers Jobless?

      All the talk of software-defined networking and automation in the industry has generated some high angst among network engineers, who wonder if SDN will put them out of work. At Interop Las Vegas, a panel addressed this anxiety and the future of networking pros in a session with a tongue-in-cheek title, "Will SDN Make Me Homeless?"

      While the panel of networking experts didn't see SDN as gloom and doom for networking engineers, they agreed that it will require an expansion of skills and a shift to becoming more of an IT generalist.  It will shake up the network engineer ...
