Technicolor's Patrick Goemaere Describes How Edge Compute and Software Life-Cycle Management Create Customer Value and Flexibility
"Executed correctly, the redefined strategy will have profound effects on improving the user experience and increasing customer intimacy for the next generation of IoT services." -- Patrick Goemaere, Technicolor
Adopting a Dual Track Approach is Key to a Successful Transition to this New Paradigm
The key to making a successful transition to this new paradigm of application and product development is to adopt a dual-track approach with respect to separating critical firmware functions from the more agile customer-facing functionality while avoiding a big-bang approach and creating an evolutionary architectural path for legacy deployments.
By redefining the approach to application and product development in this manner, NSPs will be able to harness the trends that are driving the evolution of IoT technology. It will require executives and technologists to move away from the centralized approach that has often defined development, and move, toward a more decentralized architecture that takes advantage of computing capabilities that are now taking place at the edge of the network.
Executed correctly, the redefined strategy will have profound effects on improving the user experience and increasing customer intimacy for the next generation of IoT services.
"Over the years, we have witnessed a fundamental shift in how software gets developed and deployed in the cloud. Born-in-the-
This transformation has helped these companies to create a competitive advantage so that they can rapidly check the viability of new functionality, collect user feedback and respond quickly to changing requirements.
The introduction of full automation and DevOps methodology has improved the complex social interaction that typically has plagued many complex product and service development in large scale organizations. This is being accomplished by breaking up traditional boundaries between product and business owners, R&D, IT and operations. As a result, products can quickly move through the business requirements phases to full deployment with more flexibility. This has the added benefit of allowing new ideas to be tested in a "fail fast" manner that accelerates the development process while actually reducing exposure to risk.
"The innovation around IoT has built further on the evolutions started in the Web and mobile domains. As a result, a new approach has been created to provide the foundational technology building blocks and communications/
NSP's have a major opportunity to understand and leverage these concepts to develop new products and services more quickly, cost-effectively and in a more risk-adjusted manner.
