Blockchain, Cloud, AI, Mobile Apps, Security - no brainer!

I did a quick bit of research and found that the top 5 tech jobs that are in serious short supply in terms of good ready to roll experts are, Block Chain, Cloud, AI, mobile Apps and Security programmers. Frankly this seems to reflect exactly the 5 big areas where businesses need to transform and new CEOs should look to start for new ideas.


Let's take a look at the facts. Firstly Blockchain. Last year I started Titan Investments with my Max Greenfield my son based on my unshakable belief that the tech that drives Crypto currency will lead to a change from centralised to decentralised systems. OK there are many naysayers who believe Blockchain is just a massive spreadsheet that everyone has a copy of with a puzzle to allow you to add another column. Truth is that's how it started but remember Lotus 123 changed the world of accountancy and that was just a spreadsheet, ha ha. Blockchain is really just an obvious next step for the Internet. The Internet makes Blockchain achievable and creating trust at this level is the future. In fact today Facebook has just announced they are starting a new technology division focused on understanding and developing new products in the Blockchain, AI, Mobile and security areas. We also have the imminent launch by Block One of the EOS operating system that does not use proof of work to solve the blocks and so the big problem of speed, power usage and, security could be one step closer. EOS may not be the answer but it will drive development and create opportunities.


So next the cloud, oh dear, whoever coined this phrase certainly created a big solution with a lot trouble, maybe Amazon or Google should put their hands up. In would seem that every small business seems to think they don't need to worry about IT anymore. Apparently, Millennials really think their stuff is in the Cloud totally safe and secure. So it is if you are just a one an band or in your first job. But the cloud is actually lots of standard computer and hard drives connected to the Internet. They are all centralised business and all act alone. Any growing business needs multiple clouds and multiple emails servers to manage CRMs, websites, account
