A wise man once said: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” In the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Ferris was speaking metaphorically, but now his words are literally true. His sister got a car, but he got a computer. Already, these are no longer mutually exclusive options. Many of us are already driving “connected cars,” using the cloud to offload and streamline services providing information, navigation, and in some cases (for example, with Tesla), downloadable automotive operating system upgrades, complete with release notes.
So, things are moving fast. For example, in one minute, almost 70,000 hours of entertainment is viewed on Netflix Time travel! How will your company keep up with (and become part of) this magical compounding of time? First, get on board with virtualization, that is, the magical transformation of space.
