On the final day of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017, I was in the elevator at my Las Vegas hotel and noticed a bedraggled man wearing a conference badge. I asked him how he enjoyed the conference. He looked at me with tired eyes and said he was absolutely overwhelmed. Like me, it was his first time to CES and he could only withstand a half day for two consecutive days. He told me that he felt there was just too much of everything and no order to any of it. He slumped in the elevator until we arrived at his floor; then he shuffled out and I assume went to bed.
This was my first year visiting CES and I went expecting to learn about which kinds of consumer electronics gear might be making its way into the realm of enterprise use. I saw some of that, but what I found really interesting is the amount of raw technology that is seeking to go straight into the enterprise.
