By GREGORY ZELLER // From Albany’s corridors of power to the local co-working facility’s unassuming cubicle, there’s plenty of support for the little guy. Entrepreneurs can leverage the overhead-cutting benefits of a shared-office environment, the tax-cutting delights of a Startup NY-type incentives program and a dozen other concerted efforts designed specifically to boost their startups.

It was a tremendous experience. From it, I took away three main points that apply to the topic of device virtualization: 1) Software is easier. You can control software better than ... Read More

The challenges of innovating as a large business are well-documented and formidable. Fundamentally, large companies are designed to generate revenue and margins for existing lines of business.  In other words, they have a proven business model. Innovations have no revenue, no margins, no existing lines of business and no proven business models – the objective is to find them. Large businesses are also designed to deliver the predictability and trust their brands represent.  Failure means brand, and career, damage. Innovation, on the other hand, is a journey into the unknown.  Without well-worn paths, many of these journeys result in dead ends – however, the learnings gathered along the way move innovati...
