I believe technology can be exploited to greater levels than we have allowed. We are constrained by 20th century business models and ideas. Collectively, we need to move past technology for the sake of technology and truly focus on moving markets beyond the status quo!

Look What I Found...
One of the biggest benefits of going to conferences is coming across new and exciting vendors in the industry. While you are attending the conference and caught up in the excitement, it’s thrilling to find a new gem with innovative and creative ideas, products, and offerings. Last week at the Wind River Worldwide User Conference, I found five exciting “newish” companies and one stalwart with a new twist on things.

The five new companies I uncovered last week were:
Coverity
Encirq
Klocwork
Kuka Controls (VxWin)
Trolltech

And the one big surprise came in the form of IBM Rational with its realtime offerings.

There was one unique thing I noticed about each of these vendors. They all have products, services, or offerings around a theme of unification. Unification of devices. Unification of existing applications and device software. Unification of the enterprise to the field. This is exciting. These vendors have a clear vision that the problems faced in developing and delivering software is universal. And, they all have unique solutions that ultimately make the customer (whoever the customer may be) satisfied.

I’ll blog a little more about each of these vendors later this week, so stay tuned.

What’s next?...Doing the right things right the first time makes a big difference in the end.
