Intel CEO talks IoT, 5G and the cloud
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, in a post to the company’s web site, laid out an internal transformation from a PC company to a cloud company poised to support the Internet of Things (IoT) and ultimate commercialization of 5G.
Krzanich laid out five “core beliefs that I hold to be undeniably true for the future.” From his post, those items are:
- The cloud is the most important trend shaping the future of the smart, connected world – and thus Intel’s future.
- The many ‘things that make up the PC Client business and the Internet of Things are made much more valuable by their connection to the cloud.
- Memory and programmable solutions such as FPGAs will deliver entirely new classes of products for the data center and the Internet of Things.
- 5G will become the key technology for access to the cloud and as we move toward an always-connected world.
- Moore’s Law will continue to progress and Intel will continue to lead in delivering its true economic impact.
He went into more detail about the increasing virtualization of compute resources, which has driven down costs, capacity and functionality to support massive cloud hosting.
“Virtualization and software are increasingly defining infrastructure in the cloud and data center, which plays to our strengths – we will drive more and more of the footprint of the data center to Intel architecture. However, these trends are only part of how we can drive the growth and full potential we have as a company. There is much more value to unlock from the cloud and data center, and analytics is the key to that. We’ll accelerate the power and value of analytics by continuing to innovate in high-performance computing, big data and machine learning capabilities.”
