The use of Cloud Computing (CC) means threats and risks, which nowadays tend to be reduced but which must be taken into account and managed. But, on the other hand, the CC provides to small and medium companies and startups the advantages and functionalities of technology that they could not otherwise afford.
Vendors of these services offer scalability and flexibility to adapt on the fly (pay as you go) to our needs. They also allow us to get applications available and accessible from anywhere, always. All this with the possibility of hiring not only the infrastructure and software, but also its maintenance.
Accordingly, we can talk about advantages and disadvantages, but the adoption of the CC is a clear competitive advantage for companies and institutions in which they have to embark as soon as possible. Its use is irreversible.

In astrology, Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac, the fourth of positive nature and the third of cardinal quality. It symbolizes balance and harmony and its symbol represents the balance.
Facebook will present this week its own cryptocurrency that has been baptized with the name of Libra. At first, its use will be limited to buying through its platform, but Zuckerberg’s idea is to spread its use throughout the whole internet.
The social networking company revolutionized the way people communicate. Now Facebook wants to revolutionize the financial sector. One of the major differences with other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum is that it can be exchanged with non-virtual or traditional currencies at a stable exchange rate.
En astrología Libra es el sétimo signo del zodiaco, el cuarto de la naturaleza positiva y el tercero de cualidad cardinal. Simboliza el equilibrio y la armonía y su símbolo representa la balanza.
Facebook presentará esta semana su propia criptomoneda a la que ha bautizado con el nombre de Libra. En principio su uso estará limitado a comprar a través de su plataforma, pero la idea de Zuckerberg es extender su uso por todo internet.
La red social revolucionó en su día la manera de comunicarse la gente. Ahora quiere revolucionar el sector financiero. Una de las grandes diferencias con otras criptomonedas como Bitcoin o Ethereum es que podrá intercambiarse con divisas no virtuales o reales a una tasa de cambio estable.
The 3 megatrends that are shaping the world (world population growth, the exponential advance of technology and hyper-connectivity) are going to trigger a great tidal wave which will move the economic and commercial center (of gravity) to the East.
3,000 million new people will emerge in the next decade, generating a new generation of consumption but with a clear feature: they´ll get the state-of-the-art technology, which will dramatically increase competition. This being so, economies, companies and institutions cannot waste more time and must get ready for challenges.
As in climate change, there will be losers and winners. Markets and wages will be polarized and the education gap will become larger. Here I collect 5 key points to build a winning project.
Al Big Data se han asociado una serie de características clave que lo definen, llamadas las “V” de Big Data.
Inicialmente, estas características eran 3: volumen, velocidad y variedad. Posteriormente se han añadido otras características, como la veracidad de los datos y el valor de los datos, generando así las denominadas 5 V del Big Data. Actualmente ya se está hablando de las 8 V del Big Data. Estas 8 V son muy relevantes en el sector de la salud.
As the IMFWEO (World Economic Outlook) report points out, after a lackluster outturn in 2016, economic activity is projected to pick up pace in 2017 and 2018, especially in emerging markets and developing economies. But let’s analyze 2016 activity. Economic growth was estimated in 3.1%. Nevertheless, World Trade Organization stated that world trade would be around 1.7% below world economic growth. In fact, this has been quite remarkable, as world trade, for the last fifteen years, hasn’t grown below economic rhythm.
Ideas start with ourselves. In sports, being familiar with or knowing the playfield has been debated to a great extend about how this made a difference to obtain a competitive advantage over the local team.
At the same time, this has had to do with the kind of grass and the size of the field. But at the end all teams obtained the same victory rate playing at home.
The question lies in not having found a real differentiating factor that could give any team a competitive advantage over its adversaries, beyond the advantage of playing at home.
The quality of the team counts and a bigger budget can attract more talent and, therefore, more victories.
Then, am I just saying that the team with more resources is the one able to attract more talent and therefore capable of improving its victory rate? Or, on the other hand, a team on a lower budget will never be able to get a talented and competitive team on low wages?
To both questions the answer is no. As the film Moneyball points out, it’s about breaking the rules.
“I´ve seen things you people wouldn´t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die”.
These were the wonderful las words by Batty (Rutger Hauer), Nexus 7 replicant in Blade Runner. A film, boldly ahead of our time, which sets up different questions that probably the future will answer: how genetic engineering and AI produce artificial humans (replicants) for tough and dangerous tasks, but also taking human sides into account, as Batty exposes in his monologue (tears in rain).
This post title comes from a sentence by Matt Ridley, a British journalist, businessman and author of popular science books with a very strong scientific background, who when pointing this idea out was making a word game which is easy to accept. Yes, ideas have intercourse taking into consideration that an idea is a combination of several ideas.
Tinder combines match.com with a smartphone. Pizza Hut melts Mc Donald’s and pizza. Mc Donald’s takes hamburgers through a production chain. There would be a wide number of success cases and all of them have in common the conjunction of different ideas.
