The most important around and inside Google Pixel smartphones unveiled today

For many Nexus is dead, and already they are wishing long live Pixel, a pair of handsets under Google new Pixel brand.
I can observe that, being native Google devices, Pixel smartphones will have Google Photos built in, making it easier to back up and search for photos.
The Pixel can capture 4K video at 30 frames per second, 1080p video at 120 fps and 720p at 240 fps. The company showed an impressive video stabilization, thanks to the fast Snapdragon 821 chip and 4GB of RAM. 
With 12.3-megapixel rear camera, the Pixel can be pre-ordered with two storage options.

Public sector spending on cloud-based projects in UK, US, and in India

The dynamic is very interesting. In effect, one can observe that, the UK government has implemented G-cloud program to increase cloud computing procurement across the public sector organizations of the UK.  According to Technavio, spending on cloud computing by the US government has risen because such technologies reduce the upfront cost in the public sector IT spending.
The Government of India is promoting Project Baadal, a cloud computing platform for SMBs. In fact, it is pushing the IT enablement for SMBs by promoting cloud computing as a tool to improve the efficiency and competitiveness.

Use of multitenancy and cloud management platform

Increasingly, on a streamlined way, computing service providers are offering multitenancy services in which more than one user can use a single set of software applications. 
In fact, the multi-tenancy cloud environment helps organizations to reduce the cost of IT through sharing of IT resources. 
SMBs are subscribing to multi-tenancy architecture to reduce IT maintenance costs and achieve economies of scale.

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) for IT framework within enterprises

I have a pleasure to recall that, Service-oriented architecture (SOA) provides IT framework for enterprises to manage their IT infrastructure with greater flexibility. SOA helps organizations to implement cloud-based solutions in a simplified way and takes lesser implementation time. 
In our ever-connected digital world where the competition is very aggressive, SMBs require IT frameworks for faster time to market in terms of products and services.
For those who are unfamiliar,some of the key features of the SOA involve the provision of loosely coupled architecture and design applications, services, and reusable computer codes. Loosely coupled architecture ensures that an application running in a cloud-based environment does not intersect with other multi-applications.
For instance, SOA solutions offered by IBM help enterprises to connect with their channel partners and stakeholders on an integrated platform.

The current landscape around IT vendors, global players, domestic enterprises, small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs)

For those who are unfamiliar, generally, the key focus of the IT vendors is always on the global players, which is followed by the domestic enterprises, and then the small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). 
New findings from Technavio reveal that, at present, IT vendors have started re-focusing their efforts on the upper segment of SMBs. These SMBs have a relatively mature IT landscape and seek similar services as large enterprises. 
In fact, they have started upgrading their existing IT infrastructure and are also willing to invest in emerging technologies like cloud, mobility and analytics.
I can learn that, the mid-segment of SMBs are moving from legacy applications to packaged software, while low-end SMBs have limited or no IT applications deployed.
