Each field has its own acronyms and keywords, which are frequently used. Some keywords are easy to understand in their context, while others require an online search to find out what they mean. The definition of keywords according to the Free Dictionary is : a word or phrase which often seems restrictive or technical and which has become fashionable in popular culture or in a particular profession. In this article, we will introduce some of the important and popular buzzwords of 2013/2014 in the IT industry.
Computers, computers or technical keywords
You will be surprised that there is a system that publishes the most used keywords, slang, etc. each year. The system is called Global Language Monitor or GLM for short. According to GLM, the use of acronyms and keywords is not only fashionable, but also serves English, because it says much more in one or more words. It keeps track of what is published on the Internet and how often a word, acronym or phrase is repeated to find new keywords and acronyms.
Top IT buzzwords that confuse many
Biggest buzzword for 2013-2014, nobody knew the term before, but thanks to AdSense and advertisers, Big Data is a common buzzword that is not easy to understand. In fact, Big Data refers to one or more data sets that can be used to create strategies after they have been analyzed. Big Data is not one or two MB in size. It can be measured in much higher terms than gigabytes such as hundreds of terabytes! There are special tools for analyzing such data, because humans cannot analyze them without error limits and, more importantly, without prejudice.
This makes sense and confuses us at the same time. Anything that is not implemented on your site and remote servers is cloud. This is not an exhaustive definition, as there are other related factors. Many people do not understand the whole concept of the cloud. Some think it is only for storage, while others know the functions of the cloud they are using. I remember an interview with a politician. The politician said that Google stores email in the CD cloud. But if you can’t get the mail before it rains, the data is lost! I wonder if this has anything to do with philosophy or if the politician was really so ignorant. What is the Cloud?
More buzz words from 2013/2014
The next great thing: It’s a slight buzz that is understood by all. It doesn’t need to be explained. But it has been used in so many contexts that we don’t really know what the next big project is. Err……….. Can it be a Ubuntu convertible smartphone? I guess it’s different from person to person.
Social discovery: This is a bit difficult to understand, although the words clearly indicate that it is a discovery via social networks. For example, we come to know everything about social networking sites, it’s a social discovery. It is not limited to social sites, but also includes blogs, reviews and views. If you feel uncomfortable with the keyword, here is a link to understand the social discovery
CERN: Very confused, because the acronym does not even correspond to what it represents. According to Wikipedia, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, is a European research organization whose objective is to operate the world’s largest particle physics laboratory.
Web 2.0 or 3.0 : Used to display a better World Wide Web. As far as I know, Web 2.0 is one step ahead of static pages where users had to interact in passive mode. Web 2.0 is faster and allows the user to interact in real time. It has functions that occupy the user for a long time. For example, social networking sites.
2G, 3G and 4G: G here represents generation and any 2G or 3G work refers to mobile bandwidths. There are differences in the speed of use or the mirror between generations. 3G is higher (faster), but network availability cannot be everywhere. In this case, your phone will use more battery power when you search the 3G network. From now on, 4G is even rare and I don’t think you’ll find it in areas where you know it won’t be available – rural areas are too.
SoLoMo: This is another confusing but popular/important computer keyword. It represents the convergence of the social, the local and the mobile. I still can’t get a real picture of it in my brain – even though I’ve read a whole blog on the subject. This requires more research.
SOASolution-oriented architecture. I can’t explain it here because I’m not very familiar with the concept. I’ll stop here with a link to a page with SOA for mannequins and some other books on the subject.
