Evolution of Technology and Associated Infrastructure

By Arvind Kumar, Head IT Country Manager, Gate Gourmet

Information Technology In­frastructure Has Evolved Drastically In Past 3 Decades In Term Of Mobility, Com­puting Power Or AI, And Still Under Evolution Phase. This Evolution Process Is Like Us I.E. Human Being Evolved From APE To Cave Man And Then To Modern Human.  Our Evolution Has Been Stagnated For Past Few 1000 Years But We Are Not Able To See Any Stagnation In Technology Infrastructure.

If We Talk About 2 Decades Prior I.E. Somewhere Around 1990s, Where Were We?

1. PSTN Voice With Wired Con­nection.

2. 56Kbps Data Connection And Isdns

3. Intel 386 /486 (60/100mhz) Single Core Computing Capability.

4. 10 Mbps Wired LAN Connec­tivity.

5. 256Kb / 512Kb / 1Mb Memory

6. 512 MB / 1024MB Max Stor­age Capacity

As The Time Passed And Demand Of High Computing, Data Bandwidth And Mobility Increased Then The Scenario Changed And Evolved In Omni Direc­tion Areas Such That No Once Have Im­agined.

Now After 30 Yrs. We Have Mil­lions/Trillions Time Faster Com­puting Power, Gigabyte Data Speed, Enhanced Mobility And Telecom Solutions.

1. Computing Power: Multi Core Multi Socket (Up To Deca+ Core Pro­cessing Capability Having Clock At 3+ Ghz Per Core)

2. Gigabyte / Terabyte Memory,

3. Petabyte Storage (Hybrid Stor­age, Iscsi, NAS SAN),

4. 100s Of Gbps Data Transfer Ca­pability (FC, Fcoe, Lanfi).

5. Converged / Hybrid Technol­ogy (Cloud Computing)

6. Internet Of Things (Iot) And Artificial Intelligence (AI).
 

If We See Close By Last 10 Years, In­itiation Of Merging Of IT And Telecom As 1 Entity, Technology Not Only Made It Possible To Hold Personal Computer & Land Line In Our Palm (In Form Of Smart Phone And Tablets) But Also Al­low Us To Roam Along With It (BYOD, Hybrid And Converged Networks) E.G. Cloud Computing. This Lead Us To Digitalization Of Business Which Con­nected To All Of Us Anytime Anywhere Via Mode Of Social / Ecommerce And Other Platforms.

Technology Transformation: We Have Never Thought That We Would Be Able To Attend Classes Live From Home, Can Do Face To Face Talk, No Need To Go For Bank For Any Money Transac­tions, But Technology Made It Hap­pen. School Classes Have Been Gone Through A Major Transformation And Landed As On Demand Classes And In­teractive Sessions With Our Favourite Teacher, Banking Sector Also Brought In Our Palm Via Mode Of Mobile Bank­ing By Making It Whenever Wherever Needed. Mobile Apps Like Whatsapp, Facebook, Skype Etc. Made It Possible To Talk Face To Face Anybody Anywhere Across The Globe. Similarly Cloud Computing Helped Us To Go Paperless And Make All Data / Document Avail­able Anytime Anywhere On Demand Without Any Constraint.

Now Google Glasses, Self-Drive Vehicle Etc. With Technology Like Iot & Machine Learning (AI) Made Us Think Of Humanoid (The Future).

We Have Accelerated Business De­mand, Supply And Operations Effort­lessly By Reducing Human Effort With Help Of Enhanced IT Infrastructure And Technology Platform.

Security Concern / Threat: The More We Progressed In Technology, The More We Challenged By Security Threads E.G. Virus, Malware, Phishing / Hacking Attacks Etc. Now A Days IT Security Become A Major Concern For Any Organizations And Will Remain Forever, Since Technology Enhance­ment Not Only Helps Organizations But Also Helps These Threats To Get Enhanced And More Powerful. I The Whole Journey Something Missing On Day To Day Basis, Which Is Human Touch. Hope It Can Be Brought Back.
