Cloud infrastructure services spending is taking off. The Internet of Things has a skills shortage. And machine-to-machine connections will be driven by some fairly old-fashioned tech.
That’s the latest from leading IT market watchers. And here’s your tech provider’s roundup.

How strong is the cloud market? Very, says Canalys.
Remember “Intel Inside”? That label remains one of the most successful marketing tools of all time. Who would’ve thought you could get millions of consumers to care about which brand of microprocessor their PC had? Yet that’s exactly what “Intel Inside” did.
Now Intel is at it again, this time with a new label for Project Athena. That’s Intel’s multiyear program, introduced earlier this year, for creating new advanced laptops.
Your customers no longer have to be cybersecurity experts to keep their systems safe.
Instead, they can adopt Security as a Service. It’s among the latest “as a Service” offerings. It lets your customers essentially outsource their cybersec to a managed security-services provider (MSSP).
Intel’s Ethernet 800 Series is just around the corner. Introduced in April, this line of Ethernet controllers and adapters supports networking speeds of up to 100 Gbps. That’s enough to handle your data-center customers’ most demanding cloud, communications, storage and workloads.
Smart tech providers will see this as part of their customers’ overall server refresh. To be sure, refreshing servers is important. Many midsized customers have servers that are getting old. And Microsoft is soon ending support for older versions of both Windows Server and SQL Server.
Data-center solutions are complex. But they also need to be high-quality, dependable and fast.
Intel Data Center Blocks can help.
Intel Data Center Blocks (DCBs) are pre-validated server systems that offer tech providers a simplified path to market.
By offering Intel DCBs to your data-center customers, you can free up resources. And you can focus instead on providing valued-added applications, services and support as revenue-generating operations.
It’s August already, and summer’s lease has less than a month to go. Planning a last-minute vacation? Take along any of these 6 new books, or download them to your phone or tablet, and enhance your tech knowledge while you relax.
Intel today officially launched 11 models of its newest CPUs for 2-in-1s and laptops, the 10th Gen Intel Core processors. New PCs based on these CPUs will be available from major hardware suppliers in time for the coming holiday season.
Sometimes, more is simply better.
That’s why tech providers should be excited by Intel’s QLC 3D NAND SSD series of PCIe drives. With your customers looking to cost-effectively unleash the value of their stored data, these read-optimized SSDs will enable them to store more, save more, and move beyond traditional legacy solutions.
The Internet of Things is no longer a technology of the future. Instead, it’s here and now.
A survey recently commissioned by Microsoft finds that 85% of organizations have at least one IoT project underway now. Of these, 88% says IoT tech is critical to their organization’s success. And 94% expect to use IoT in the next 2 years.
