Ericsson: My First Impression
I joined Ericsson in March 2015. I work mostly from my home office, but once a week I drive from the Sacramento area, where I live, to spend two days in a large shared office at 200 Holger Way in San Jose, California. I joined a small group in engineering and marketing. I met some of the nicest and open-minded professional people I ever worked with. Our mentor is Jason Hoffman, the Head of Cloud Technology within Business Unit Cloud & IP, and a charismatic cloud computing pioneer.

What Kind of Cloud Computing Will Enterprises Need in 2016? Part 3

By: 27 October, 2015Cloud
Enterprise Transformation 2016 According to a Forrester study quoted by Lavastorm Analytics and published in December 2014, enterprises must make a shift to a philosophy and culture “that closes the gap between what customers want and what the company can deliver.” They were referring to a process of transformation from IT (Information Technology) into BT (Business Technology). The merging of IT and BT  faces obstacles. Enterprises are expanding C-level positions as the CIO‘s mandate does not cover the entire set of activities involved in this corporate transformation. Some organizations create new job descriptions like Chief Data Officer (collects, maintains, and makes available data per policy), Chief Asset Officer (new assets created by the digital industrialization), and Chief Knowledge Officer (maximizes the use of the knowledge acquired  for better decision making and innovation).Co…

The New Dandelion non-profit (proposed)

I appeal to all readers of this article to circulate it as widely as possible. It proposes the creation  of employment for High Functioning Autistic (HFA) young people in a natural  way, supplementing the institutions we already have  and leveraging their resources. An estimated 300,000 people in US are HFAs. Why not rescue their gifts and talents to bring happiness and create wealth in our society?

What is a High Functioning Autism disorder? This is the WebMD definitionHigh-functioning autism (HFA) is at one end of the ASD  (Autism Spectrum Disorder). Signs and symptoms are less severe than with other forms of autism. In fact, a person with high-functioning autism usually has average or above-average intelligence.  Unlike people with other forms of autism, people with high-functioning autism want to be involved with others. They simply don't know how to go about it. As a result, they may be teased and often feel like social outcasts. The unwanted social isolation can lead to anx…

What Kind of Cloud Will Enterprises Need in 2016? Part 2

(part 1)

Enterprise 2016 Most clouds today tend to be defined by the engineering features and business models of their providers, not the needs of their enterprise customers.

Ericsson Cloud, however, is focused on the needs of the enterprise customer.

Running an enterprise business on others’ people clouds who have their own security and governance rules may be different […]

Employment for High Functional Autistic (HFA) people

This blog records the success in educating David to become a mechatronics technician. We proved the principle that he is employable. All David needs now, is a real  job.

We  ask any reputable, large company, like Intel, Apple, Oracle in Sacramento area to give David a chance to make a presentation of what he is able to do for them. A team of facilitators will accompany David.

There is no obligation: just open the door. From California, we discovered something great. All we need now is to have David really working in a field similar to what he studied.

This blog  follows the progress David since four years. Here is one of the entries:
Ahronovitz eyes robotic future - Rocklin  from August 2012, mentioned that David,  my HFA son and  a Whitney High grad will attend Sierra College's Mechatronics Program. He did attend the mainstream classes of professor Steven Gillette.  In December 2012, he did not pass the final exam. Professor Steven Gillette wrote at the time
“David clearly has int…

Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) and I

What is the Google new announcement all  about,  We read: For many, reading on the mobile web is a slow, clunky and frustrating experience - but it doesn’t have to be that way. The Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) Project is an open source initiative that embodies the vision that publishers can create mobile optimized content once and have it load instantly everywhere. First comments are this technology is over complicated. Here is a comment from Google blog
The cause is good, but AMP is overcomplicated. They rely heavily on JavaScript, Web Components, Custom Elements and custom attributes. They require polyfills for other browsers. Instead of removing web cruft, they add external scripts in . They allow only a limited set of tags, My first reaction was to admire Google once again.

Then I thought what it means:
Creates sameness Imagine wherever  we go, we read the same news, see the same adsAbility to infect the Internet with low-quality contentCreate monopolies of opinion, silencin…

What Kind of Cloud Will Enterprises Need in 2016?
By: 5 October, 2015Cloud
(part 1 of 3)Continuous change is something that every business has to deal with today, yet the IT capacity required to meet that change is consistently underestimated. Soon businesses will need 10x more capacity, but they won’t be given 10x budgets to cope. Enterprises are challenged to respond faster while containing costs to remain competitive. One way to meet this challenge is through a different way of looking at the data center and the cloud.Continue reading
