the future vision of Cloud-Native Buildings

“Cloud-native ” might seem foreign, but the data architecture is very familiar. Most of us use it every day without even knowing it. You use a cloud-native architecture if you have a smartphone with an app. Most of the “stuff” that makes up a social media, calendar, or other app exists outside your phone. Sure, we download apps to our phones, and most of us think that’s where they live, but most of the data, processing, etc., that makes apps work lives someplace else—that someplace is the cloud. Cloud-native buildings work similarly, where resources, data, and computation would happen, not just somewhere else but everywhere.

Reviewing Renewing “Real” Relationships Your knowledge of the past and your connections to valuable industry relationships is your superpower. Your ability to mashup your past experiences in the new AI-propelled Era of Enviromation will now define you. Although we are creating many new relationships in the new Era, we need carefully reevaluate, review, renew and retread our existing relationships. Retread – go back over a path of one’s steps. How did we get here? Why are we doing what we are doing? How have those strong relationships that created our past now able to propel us into our future?
