We have had so much time with our closest family members, have worked from home and homeschooled, and many of us have lost jobs or income or our small businesses had to close the doors. This time to think gives rise to new ideas, innovation, creativity, charity, and entrepreneurialism.

U.S. wireless carriers have made significant strides in rolling out 5G services across major cities, but all are on different paces using varying spectrum strategies to reach both consumers and business end-users.

The Customer-Centric CIO: Driving New Innovative Customer Experiences
CIO.com
August 27, 2019
As the enterprise digital transformation continues, the evolving role of the CIO places new importance on enhancing and transforming the customer experience (CX). In fact, IDG’s 2018 State of the CIO survey says 58% of CIOs expect customer meetings to increase significantly or somewhat over next 12 months.

This shift requires prioritizing the customer versus technology or products, and involves leading customer-facing teams that include marketing, sales, and customer support. CIOs must learn how to empower employees and teams to think differently about CX while embracing technology and automation. In addition, today’s CIO will need to adopt new business processes, better understand key client issues and challenges, and become more of a strategic advisor to customers and internal teams.

U.S. CA-CHORDANT SMART CITIES BENEFITS INDEX
Interdigital/Chordant
October 09, 2017
The CA-Chordant Smart Cities Benefits Index is the first comprehensive study designed to examine the relative potential benefits of Smart City technology in America’s major metropolitan areas. It goes beyond a static snapshot of current municipal efforts by providing a meta-analysis of U.S. cities’ relative capacities for smart city innovation now, and into the future.

The goal of this Index and analysis is to equip public officials, community leaders, and corporate executives with a quantitative perspective of which cities are positioned to benefit from smart cities and why, thereby allowing them to drive both targeted and broad-based improvements. The Index also aims to enhance multi-sectoral collaboration within and across cities to accelerate project piloting, adoption, and best-practices.

2 Trends
Mobile, Digital, Virtual is Embraced and Safety/Mitigation Rank as a High Priority

Date : September 29, 2020

Across all sizes of businesses, especially SMB businesses, we are embracing digital, virtual, and mobile more than ever. As we seek solutions to support shifting operations out of the home, with remote workforces, and aggressively pursue safer and more risk-free business activities in the back office and with customers/patients we will seek out a greater number of mobile apps, digital tools, and virtual software solutions to implement this core trend.

Through the Playbook Out the Window, Work Priorities Shift After Covid-19

Date : October 07, 2020

Disruption can come in many forms, but none of us even considered a global pandemic to change the way we work, think, collaborate, sell, and market. We are now entering into an era where instead of looking to mobile, digital, and virtual as additions to our core strategy, they become the core foundation of our strategy moving forward. We look to applications, software, virtualization, and digital experiences to transact, interact, attract customers, and engage while providing unique customer experiences. Many will remain working from home, so collaboration tools and equipment is vital to enhancing the work experience in a home environment. Small businesses will experience the most disruption, as many have closed or had to think of brand new ways to serve their customers or change their business models to stay in business. Touchless and contactless become extremely valuable and accepted across many customer experiences. Get ready for the ride and take advantage of this new way of work!

Embracing WFH and The Remote Workforce
Thinkers360
March 25, 2020
It is now the norm and you as a business owner, manager, worker, manager, etc, must embrace the best of the best work from home tools to keep your business, your company, and the economy going. I want to share a few tips and tools based on my own experience, research, and technology learnings, as I have been working from home (#WFH) for more than 18 years. I understand not all job roles can be transitioned to a remote workforce, but for companies getting started, these tips might be the most helpful for you.

1. Choose your Security (Mobile, Online, eCommerce)
2. Corporate Access and Corporate Liable Equipment and Devices
3. Digital Communications (Messaging, Doc Sharing, Videoconferencing)
4. Sales and Marketing Shift - Moving to Pure Digital for Now
5. Ongoing Engagement & Remaining Relevant

Choose your Security (Mobile, Online, eCommerce)
Whether you are using smartphones, tablets, or company provided/personal computers, you need to adhere to very strict security requirements for work activities. Make sure your Internet, Computer, and Phone security software is live, up to date, and activated. If you can, make sure to use a secure VPN connection when accessing corporate assets, files, and systems. If you fail here and allow employees to just use ANY device they have at home, then you are opening yourself up to massive vulnerabilities that you can bet will have hackers ready to grab and disrupt what they can.

CES2020: What did we learn? by Stephanie Atkinson
Thinkers360
January 23, 2020
Every year CES put on by the Consumer Technology Association showcases the next wave of technologies including new gadgets, electronics, computing devices, and a list of emerging products that mesmerize and make waves with roughly 4.5K exhibiting companies. According to their website, "CES is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. A high-level business event that touches all industries, it’s the place where business gets done." CES has also evolved, with roughly 175K attendees in 2020 and having previously focused on consumer-only electronics and devices, and now the door has been opened for a host of areas "including 5G connectivity, artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, smart cities, sports, robotics and more." About 3 years or so, they even opened up the show floor to showcase "B2B" or business targeted technologies and solutions. As such, this event encompasses a range of industries including consumer electronics, smart home technologies, communications technology, Internet of Things, Drones, AR/VR technologies, Fleet and asset tracking and monitoring, machine learning, smart cars and autonomous vehicles, robotics technologies, and so much more.

This is my 9th trip to CES in Las Vegas, where I have hosted multiple media lunches and even previous award shows along with speaking on panels and participating in sub-events. This year seems quite a bit more organized not just at the event, but also across Las Vegas. Traffic and congestion was improved, ride sharing services were more responsive, locating events and booths were bit easier to navigate, and the overall event seems to be run very well. I was able to roam around and attend booth meetings in North Hall, South Hall, Westgate but primarily centered around Tech East and Tech South. While I thought the overall mass buzz and excitement this year was overwhelming, there were some big things that happened this year, and sometimes we need to get back to the basics and foundation to essentially leverage technology to improve lives, business, and the overall planet.

Here are a few takeaways based on my trip this year:

Key consumer themes revolved around 5G, "smart" everything, and robotics
Key business or B2B themes revolved around 5G, Edge (devices, analytics, computing), and industry solutions.

Thoughts on 5G in 2020
Thinkers360
January 10, 2020
U.S. wireless carriers have made significant strides in rolling out 5G services across major cities, but all are on different paces using varying spectrum strategies to reach both consumers and business end-users. According to a recent article on SDxCentral, "Earlier this month, T-Mobile US leapfrogged all of its competitors with a nationwide 5G network running on 600 MHz spectrum. The operator’s low-band 5G network covers about 200 million people, or about 61% of the total population, spanning a geographic range of more than 1 million square miles." They also share that AT&T will reach part of 30 cities by early 2020 with AT&T confusing some in the industry by using the term “5G E” brand in select cities, while using “5G” brand for 5G running over low-band spectrum, and “5G+” for those running on mmWave spectrum. Verizon recently announced reaching 30 cities and 14 NFL stadiums by the end of this year. Lastly, Sprint started out 2019 with a strong leading roll-out of 5G but is expected to end the year covering roughly 11 million people. Also, U.S. Cellular shares it will launch 5G service in Q1 of 2020.

Meanwhile, a recent survey conducted by Compass Intelligence shows roughly 49% of those 4K+ wireless end-users surveyed across the U.S. believe 5G is available within their city or town, with 15% planning on purchasing a 5G enabled smartphones or devices in 2020. As consumers plan upgrades, phone replacements, and trade-ins on their smartphones, it only makes sense to make sure your device is 5G ready or enabled. Most wireless end-users, 88% of the 4,351 surveyed, believe 5G will be faster than 4G or LTE, with 31% believing 5G will be much more than just a faster or speed upgrade when compared to 4G or LTE services. Wireless carriers have not really been effective at communicating what these other advantages are to consumers at this stage, as most of the marketing and communication has been about the coming advantages to business solutions yet consumers will see brand new customer experiences with 5G like they have not seen in the past.

As for now, experiences within venues like airports, stadiums and event venues, shopping/retail, and engaging within a city has the potential to offer brand new real-time and personalized experiences. Many ideas have been shared at a high-level, but think about seamless buying and shopping catered to your needs and wants with better location, routing, checkout, and service. 5G will open up a host of new applications!
