5G not here yet
5G not here yet - IT Governance Implications
Verizon and AT&T Jumped the Gun on 5G. This was going to be a big year for 5G, but we'll have to suffer through a huge amount of marketing spin to get there. First there was the curious debut of AT&T's 5G E, which isn't really 5G.
How do you plan when the technology is marketed and then not implemented in a timely fashion?
Then the disappointing speed tests started to roll in. Verizon's earnings call this week was just as revealing. The truth is, the only 5G out there today in the US is on TV commercials.5G not here yet
Feds should set national privaty and security rules
Privacy and Security should be set by the Feds not individual states or tech giants.
Technology ompanies should not be the prime movers for security. If we let the tech leaders write the laws that are supposed to regulate them, then it defeats the purpose. Security and privacy regulation needs to be consistent and therefore, it has to be federal. State laws are set up to fail because they all have boundaries attached, and the flow of data today has no boundaries. A federal law would address that.Feds should set national privaty and security rules

Not a good idea to depend on Tech Giants Products
Tech Giants cannot be depended on rather IT Infrastructure Policies and Procedures are the solution
Tech Giants will create new products that are linked to thier infratructure and if they do not create enough value, they will just abandon them. For example, Google is killing off Inbox, its experimental email app that's lived alongside Gmail for the past four years. The service is set to shut down for good this coming March.
When Inbox was announced in October of 2014, Google described it as something that was years in the making and a completely different type of inbox, designed to focus on what really matters.They also said it was designed for the problems we're going to see in the next 10 years. The company is sending the app away to its increasingly crowded virtual graveyard.
Companies and individuals need to depend on thier own infrastructure.Not a good idea to depend on Tech Giants Products
