10 business techs for entrepreneurs at CES 2019

7 0 0

The name of the giant technology show in Las Vegas this week is CES (the CONSUMER Electronics Show), so by definition the technologies being demonstrated by the thousands of vendors and tested by the 180,000 people expected to attend will be consumer focused. But that doesn't mean that some of these technologies won’t impact my business - and yours - in the near future.

Here are ten such technologies that I'm going to check out, because any one of them may help me run my business better and more profitably in the coming years.

Verizon's 5G Network

2019 will be the year of 5G and Verizon - as well as competitors like AT&T - which will be showcasing their capabilities in advance of their coming rollouts to many parts of the country. Yes, it will be more expensive, but the higher cost should result in faster applications, less latency, better videos and an infrastructure that will better support newer techs coming down the road (like virtual and augmented reality, Internet of Things-based sensors and devices and voice-enabled applications). All of that will mean more productivity in my business.

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Chips

Back in the day it was pretty much chips made by Intel that drove laptops and PCs. Today the landscape has changed and the leader in chip-making for new devices like phones and tablets is, in my opinion, Qualcomm.

A lot of this has been accomplished by their Snapdragon chip line. Now the company is invading Intel's turf by introducing a new line of chips designed specifically for PCs and laptops called the Snapdragon 8cx Compute Platform that, according to Raymond Wong at Mashable, is "significant because Qualcomm's designed it from scratch just for PCs — specifically, thin-and-light laptops and 2-in-1s that are meant to be always-on and always-connected."

Like 5G, anything that helps my clients - most of whom continue to rely on laptops and PCs - work faster and gain more productivity is a win for my business.
