As an IBM Premier Business Partner, Oxford Networks recently attended the 2013 IBM PartnerWorld held in Las Vegas at Caesar’s Palace. The theme for the event was Leadership on a Smarter Planet and consisted of educational seminars, leadership exchanges and even a community outreach project coordinated by Three Square, Southern Nevada’s only food bank.
The goal of the conference was to collectively think about and discuss how we can work to provide the solutions and resources our customers need to meet their changing technology needs. IBM is leading the way with its Smarter Planet family of products, such as Smarter Analytics, Smarter Commerce, and Smarter Computing.

Moore’s law is the observation that over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every two years. The period often quoted as “18 months” is due to Intel executive David House, who predicted that period for a doubling in chip performance (being a combination of the effect of more transistors and their being faster).
