“Omnipotence and omniscience are the end of power and knowledge.”
â€• Dejan Stojanovic
Â Yesterday I was looking for a laptop online and I was bombarded with choices: screen size, processor, ultra books, tablets, convertibles and enough confusion for a lifetime.
Life as it is has become simpler yet more complicated, the age of customization is definitely upon us, Dell got this right long ago with the mass customization of laptops which we see prevalent today. This is not only true for end-consumer based products but for enterprises as well.
The whole world is moving towards DYOS (Design Your Own Solution), where we see more power at the fingertips of every customer, especially enterprises. Hardware-based systems while they have served their purpose many eons ago are rapidly being replaced by flexible solutions that can be easily configured. The key here is speed and functionality.
We see more and more configurable software that are based on open-architecture, the rise of APIâ€
The power is indeed on our fingertips, we can mold any solution to how we want to work. My Gmail for example is loaded with so many app extensions that I actually donâ€
Interestingly enough, Diyos in Tagalog (Deus in Latin) means god and DYOS has come around to bring about a new era of power and knowledge that is readily available, and molded specifically to every user out there, whether it is the end customer or the enterprise.
