Change is sometimes difficult to embrace, especially when it involves downtime. Autodesk, makers of world-renowned 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software, wanted to change from perpetual licensing to subscription-based licensing, but knew that this change would likely impact the entire company. Kurt Jackson, Autodesk’s platform architect, says that the change would result in a major shift in the way that the company did business. “Our legacy system, which had been in place since 1982, was constructed around a very large perpetual license environment, and all of our systems were very largely designed to support that.” In addition, the legacy system was slow and inefficient. Not only was it unable to support the transition to a subscription based licensing model, but it just could not meet the demands of business stakeholders, who required increasingly timely, higher quality data.Autodesk needed a way to smoothly transition to the new pricing model without impacting existing, perpetual licensing and while facilitating faster access to better data overall, for improved business intelligence.

Why America Must win the Race to 5G

Article | March 15, 2020

The United States has entered another technology duel on par with the space race—the race for the 5G network. It will revolutionize digital interconnectivity through enhanced data processing and storage capacity. The Chinese technology giant Huawei is capturing the 5G telecommunications equipment industry worldwide. Huawei promotes contracts covering every aspect of the 5G network from financing to installation. The United States is concerned that the company’s growth amplifies China’s political sway and brings security vulnerabilities. Huawei is subservient to the communist government under Chinese law. Multiple governments have indicted Huawei for espionage, theft, bribery, and corruption. The United States has added to these charges obstruction of justice, fraud, and illicit sales to the rogue regimes of Iran and North Korea. As the West and China haggle over the 5G market, several nations face a telling choice. To meet the 5G challenge, the United States should negotiate trade agreements on end-to-end 5G services, create supply chains for upcoming virtualized 5G networks, support alternate suppliers, and invest in domestic research to dampen Huawei’s expansion.

Can AI bring down network energy costs?

Article | March 15, 2020

Data volumes in mobile networks are increasing at an unprecedented rate. In our latest mobility report, we forecast that mobile data traffic will grow fourfold by 2025, reaching up to 160 exabytes (EB) per month. This is amazing of course and offers all kinds of opportunities for communications service providers, but there is also a potential downside to this rapid surge in data traffic: its impact on the energy consumption and carbon footprint of mobile networks. That’s not the only downside for communications service providers, as it also raises a significant cost concern. The energy consumption of today’s networks accounts for 10 percent of annual operation expenditure (OPEX). As we found in our AI report, the demand to reduce operational costs already ranks among the top priorities for today’s operators. With the deployment of 5G and a spike in data traffic forecast, suddenly this demand becomes even more relevant.
