The Future of the Enterprise

  • Ansari F.

  • Sparks K.

Enterprises are in many ways the laggards of the new digital era, as their processes and internal and external services remain rooted in the analog or physical world, and the digital systems they use are frequently disjoint and out-of-date relative to the latest web or consumer services and applications. However, that is about to change and enterprises are about to undergo a massive transformation to become virtual in the broadest sense. The new virtual enterprise will undergo a comprehensive digital transformation to become adaptive, efficient, and location-independent. It will also build on the assets of others, virtualize and digitize its own assets to the largest extent possible, automating the dynamic utilization of those assets and the connection to its business processes, and continuously optimizing the employee and customer experience.

© 1963-2012 IEEE. This article presents a packaged SiGe BiCMOS reflectometer for 0.01-26-GHz two-port vector network analyzers (VNAs). The reflectometer chip is composed of a resistive bridge coupler and two wideband heterodyne receivers for coherent magnitude and phase detection. In addition, a high-linearity receiver channel is designed to accommodate 20 ...

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...

Digital networks at the nexus of productivity growth

  • Kamat S.
  • Prakash S.
  • Saniee I.
  • Weldon M.

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
