In this “nominal 15 minute analysis” I”m looking at technology convergence and how it needs standards for the market to operate.
The market transition for convergence in IT infrastructure is a common economic transition for any mature market. The trend to convergence disrupts vendor product platforms and customer architecture so gaining insight into this trend is a useful guide for the future of network, compute and storage.
As the market transitions through convergence, we will see a phase of commoditization as the value of so-called “unique” features that vendors claim as competitive advantage will be more of an annoyance than valuable. But as the orchestration platform become common, those value can return in the future. EtherealMind-Convergence-Standards-May-2015
Anyway, here is a screencast on the topics of convergence and standards. I look forward to discussing your thoughts and responses in the comments!
