SMB DIGITAL powered by CEBIT Australia to help businesses develop a roadmap to the future

Between the devastating bushfires from the start of the year through to the ongoing pandemic, the bedrock of the Australian economy has been hit with wide-scale customer declines, supplier challenges, and the impact of lockdowns. And yet, despite all of this, there is confidence in the sector. Sensis research shows that 57 per cent of SMBs “feel confident” in their future.

The key will be how those businesses rebound and move forward as the economy begins to recover. The challenge will be that businesses need to acknowledge that the pandemic has had a profound socio-cultural impact, and it will change consumer behaviour. People will rely on online shopping and remote services more, and as such the focus on the digital experience will be all the more critical. That’s a transition that will challenge some SMBs. As a Deloitte report recommends, small businesses should take a step back and consider a

The Technology 202: TikTok’s future is uncertain as backlash mounts in Washington

Trump, who previously pushed for a full sale of the TikTok service to an American company and threatened to otherwise ban the service, added that he expects to be briefed today on the proposal to make Oracle TikTok’s “trusted technology partner.”

“It has to be 100 percent as far as national security is concerned, and no, I’m not prepared to sign off on anything,” Trump said. “I have to see the deal.” 

The proximity to Nov. 3 makes it a toss-up whether Trump will seek a tough line on China – or compromise and call it a win. 

The key question is whether the deal proposed earlier this week to outsource data management to Oracle would do enough to address national security concerns that ByteDance could share Americans’ data with the Chinese government. 

Top administration officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have raised concerns about such an arrangement, according

Small Tech Stocks Soar as the Future Arrives Early

Fastly is up more than 310 percent this year. Zscaler is up over 180 percent. Chegg and Veeva are up 75 percent and 90 percent. In a tech universe dominated by Apple, Amazon, Microsoft and Google, the share prices of little companies you’ve probably never heard of are soaring.

The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated trends that were building for years by forcing large swaths of the population to work from home and shop online. And many obscure companies are taking off, driven by investors who expect them to flourish in an economy whose future arrived ahead of schedule.

“When it comes to remote work in particular, the past 10 weeks have seen more changes than we’ve seen in the previous 20 years,” said Erik Brynjolfsson, an economist and the director of the Digital Economy Lab at Stanford University.

Surveys conducted by Mr. Brynjolfsson and economists at the Massachusetts Institute of

The Penny Arcade Expo, better known as PAX, has become a major fan convention and games industry event since starting in the Seattle area in 2004, spawning sister events around the country and on the other side of the world. Like every other American convention this year, however, the flagship PAX West convention in Seattle has been forced by COVID-19 to change things up.

Instead of sticking to the usual 4-day schedule, PAX’s organizers Penny Arcade and ReedPop are currently offering PAX Online, a nine-day, 24-hour revolving virtual convention, held as a combined show with the cancelled Eurogamer Expo (EGX) event in London. First announced on June 16, PAX Online combines live streams, chatroom panels, a Discord chat server, and downloadable game demos to provide a PAX-esque experience to attendees still stuck in quarantine, with a 24-hour events schedule for insomniacs and

This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

Apple’s popular smartwatch is getting an update, called the Apple Watch Series 6, with a key new health sensor, as well as features focused on making the gadget easier to use with kids. The new sensor for the Apple Watch can measure your blood oxygen level in 15 seconds, Apple said, and will also track your blood oxygen in the background. The feature adds to 2019’s Apple Watch Series 5, which Apple used to introduce technology that enabled an always-on display, turning its Watch into more of a watch, as opposed to the wrist computer some people consider it to be.

“The future of health is on your wrist,” Apple said in one of its promo videos.

Peloton’s Future Looks Bright

Late last week, Peloton reported better-than-expected earnings with its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings release. Revenues were $607.1 million exceeding expectations of $582.5 million while earnings per share were $0.27, beating expectations of $0.10 per share. After experiencing an impressive quarter, with sales growing 172%, Peloton management held a two hour virtual analyst day to discuss their positive outlook for the future.

Peloton’s expectation of continued success into the next quarter can be attributed to their belief that the total addressable market has grown from 14 million households at the time of their IPO to 20 million households. Market penetration has increased from 4% to 7% in that same time frame. Peloton management also acknowledges that if prices for products were sub $1000, the size of their addressable market could see more expansion.

Another sign of positivity for Peloton’s future is the opening of their Shin Ji factory in December. Since the

Take-Two CEO Doesn’t Think Cloud Gaming Is The Future

As the CEO of Take-Two Interactive Software, which publishes some of the biggest games out there (literally), Strauss Zelnick doesn’t see cloud gaming making a huge difference to his business. Zelnick explained his lack of enthusiasm in an in-depth interview with Protocol.

Though he isn’t claiming cloud gaming is a bad thing, the gaming exec is reluctant to believe the cloud is going to make a big dent in industry income. “Any new distribution vehicle that offers high-quality, efficiency and a reasonable price is good for our business,” he prefaces. “That said, there was all this hype for years about VR, and I wasn’t very compelled by that. Thankfully, as a result, we didn’t waste any money on it. Equally, there was an enormous amount of hype around movement to the cloud for interactive entertainment distribution.”

His problem with cloud gaming isn’t around the technology or the execution, but rather
