I’m trained to look for patterns in technology. I developed this survival technique in my many roles as a CTO where you’re tasked with placing bets on what technology will be important, especially the timing of when to make investments and what those investments should be.
It does not matter if you’re a true technology company (as were most of my employers), a services company, a traditional enterprise, or a new one. Everyone is attempting to figure all this out. Understanding what concepts are emerging, what concepts are going to be relevant, and the timing of that relevance is a career skill.

Dave Vellante of SiliconAngle does a great job of looking at the preshow reveals by talking to AWS chief executive Adam Selipsky.
