Phill Lawson-Shanks, Chief Development Officer of Aligned Energy, discusses the trend of shifting to a platform-based society. “Everything is authenticating to platforms. It’s social media engines, it’s search engine platforms,” he observes. The transition to a platform-based society has transformed everything about how we operate, including a change in the devices we use.
Mr. Lawson-Shanks describes how the transition to platforms has resulted in an exponential increase in traffic and highlights the primary issue of latency we face today.
