Growing the future
Our Decentralized Future
We believe that the trend towards decentralization will have a profound effect not just on technology, but on the everyday lives of consumers.
With our eye trained on the future, we are closely tracking this shift towards Edge and Cloud computing. For us, this means developing, acquiring, and investing in software capabilities around orchestration, security, provisioning, and blockchain.
As decentralization becomes the new norm, it’s imperative to address the implications for both innovators and consumers. The rise of IoT and a growing concern over privacy mean that software must meet a new set of standards, like low latency, lower bandwidth, and greater security. How can we best leverage this change to improve user experiences and push the limits of technology?
At Samsung NEXT, we begin to answer this question by decentralizing innovation itself. Our global offices, diverse teams, and open minds live at the proverbial “edge.” And with our deep commitment to what’s next, we believe that the possibilities for improving lives—and evolving technology—are limitless.
