Windows Mobile is collapsing even faster than expected:


Good ideas, but you might reconsider the acronym. It is bound to be changed to SCAM by distractors.

Also, you might think of a suitable Chinese 5 character acronym.


Just for fun, I put
Social media, Cloud computing, Internet of Things, Analystics, Mobile connectivity

through Google Translate to get:
社交媒体, 云计算, 物联网, 分析,移动连接

Take the first character of each and you get: 社云物分移 which translates to: Clouds community transport (Google Translate)
Maybe not what you want. ;-)


Now, things get really weird.

My 5 character acronym "社云物分移" does not exist, according to Google. But use Big Data (大数据) io Analytics and rearrange the characters to 云大物移社 (~CAIMS) and it does exist. It does not translate well in Google Translate, but when I pick out one of the links found by Google, it seems Tomi is not the only one thinking in this direction:

Translates to:
Information of the five major trends: cloud was big shift Society
On the whole direction of information technology, translation of Liu Jing, vice president of technical points mentioned five major trends: cloud computing, big data, networking, socialization with mobile.

But it seems Tomi adds his personal insight into the importance of mobile as the foundation of the other four.


I am not sure whether these Chinese sources actually include IoT or whether that is included in "Networking".

Here is another source (2016-05-18):

"Thereafter, the vice president of the China Information Association HU Xiaoming made the theme of "ideas and methods CIO" speech. Hu said: In a 云大物移社 era, CIO face of global innovation environment, the need for innovative insight +, to understand the technology, the system, the market, but also to understand future trends. CIO are plenty of examples to learn from the abstract concept of a multi-dimensional, flexible architecture of knowledge, "what for most valuable" is the CIO important test."


Reverse the order to MAICS?

Not totally free as there are an AI conference called MAICS (Modern Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science) and a Philippines' gym called Maics.
