iOS 8 UK launch – executive commentary from Lee Wade, CEO of Exponential-e
“Retaining its position as a great innovator is a strategic imperative for Apple. At first glance, the new features included in iOS 8 may not seem dramatic but they do reflect how Apple is once again preparing to disrupt the world.
The introduction of extensions, HomeKit and HealthKit demonstrate how the Internet of Things is starting to mature and the potential it holds for changing how users consume technology on a day-to-day basis. Smart devices, ubiquitous networks and rich applications will converge to meet consumers demands for an embedded, intelligent computing experience.
However, it’s important to remember that this update will not be confined to a user’s personal life. The demand for a more connected experience will start to infiltrate into the workplace and the cloud will be central to delivering a customised user experience that can be seamlessly transferred from one device to another. To be prepared, organisations need to ensure that they can keep Cloud networks private and secure behind the firewall so that the most important asset in today’s enterprise – its data – is not compromised as we move rapidly towards the Internet of Things.”
