“Those who build have more to offer than those who tear things down.”
Dr. Madeleine Albright spoke these words as she addressed the GITEC audience during the morning keynote last week. A speech full of experience and witty jokes, this one statement held my attention.
Technology today is a constant race of innovation, so much so that the desire to be first may appear to outweigh the importance of being the best. While this makes for some interesting press conferences, tweets and outrageous claims, this is not what will let the tech industry continue to better the world in which we live. The race for “first” without consideration for quality will not help the global view of the United States or our national cyber security.
Now well into the second quarter of our year, we’re working to improve the bigger picture. We may have the most precise wireless detection (AirPatrol), we may have the fastest supercomputing analytics (LightMiner), we may be the golden standard for print advertising management (Shoom), but what’s really important is what we’re building through combined efforts. We are first to complete all in one mobile detection of Wi-Fi, cellular and Bluetooth, but we’re not racing to be first, we’re racing to be the best. The story we’re writing is something more than tweet worthy.
The future is in sensors and being able to accurately use the massive quantity of data they collect. This data can be used at a very specific level such as individual users or used to understand large groups, generalizations, and used to plan for the future. If you accurately understand what is happening today, you can better prepare for tomorrow.
The problem with today’s analytics is that it’s only as good as the data and, in many cases, the data is flawed by being incomplete. One may say that having some data is better than no data, but what good does it do you if your strategy is based off a 50% chance? Are you willing to bet your growth strategy on a heads or tails flip? We’re not.
We’re building a suite that includes complete data, data you wouldn’t even believe you can passively see, in order to best see today and envision tomorrow. With total data, we can understand why something happened, what is happening now, and what will happen next. It’s not quite a crystal ball, but it’s close.
Keep an eye on what we’re doing next. We have a lot in the works ranging from digital solutions for publishing to real time gamer analytics to protecting some of the most secure agencies in the USA. The future is made from the best technology – see you there.
