Tech analysts are already starting to see the trend of movement toward investing in enterprise technology.

Investments into enterprise software companies of all stripes are soaring. The amount of capital invested in these startups has already surged to over $5.4 billion in the first half of 2014. That’s roughly the same amount that enterprise-facing companies raised in the entire year for 2013, according to data from CrunchBase.

The transition to Web 2.0 as an application structure is complete. People are less interested in generating data and more interested in building efficient means to handle data. Words like automation, organization, management, resource optimization are quickly becoming the hottest buzz words. Have you considered how this market shift will affect your projects?

“We found that we could do just as well in predicting flu trends in New York City as we did nationally,” says Mark Dredze, the assistant research professor of computer science at Johns Hopkins who supervised the research. “That’s critical because decisions about what to do during a flu epidemic are largely made at the local level.”

For example, when flu cases are on the rise, hospital administrators must make sure they have enough beds, staff, and medicine to cope. Also, an early alert can lead local health officials to boost efforts to vaccinate healthy residents to help contain the virus.

How have you considered the use of alternate data mining as a primary source in your project?

"The cost of memory and bandwidth has declined steeply, meaning “you don’t have to be as efficient,” says Schrage. “You can take shortcuts, design things that are a little inefficient. You can afford to waste the resources of a technology that’s now cheap and the virtual freedom of these technologies means that you can play with all manner of ideas.”"
"According to research firm Gartner, our smartphones, tablets and “phablets” will utilize cognizant computing — the next step in personal cloud computing — by 2017, rendering them capable of predicting our next move based on what it knows."
"The falloff has continued through the first half of this year, with ebooks now showing clear signs of “stagnating” at about 25 percent of the overall U.S. book market, according to Digital Book World: ”Once thought destined to reach 50% or 80% of all book buying and reading in the U.S., ebooks have stalled out on their way up to higher altitude.”"

MIT Chemical Engineers have developed tiny particles that propelled by light and steered by electromagnetism. The particles can also self-dock with other pre-determined particles. The docking mechanism is versatile and can be applied to various materials and shapes.This mechanism opens up the possibility of micro-factories. Will your next job be in a micro-factory?
