Hey, let's give Mark a chance to shine and see how he steers the boat. Under Appleton is was his way or out the door. Mark is a very smart guy and could take the company to new levels and opportunities. Shake up Boise Mark, here is your chance!
Mark Durcan seems to be a decent, competent guy. But I don't know that he has any real vision of the company being anything other than what it is right now. Micron is at a cross roads where some longer term strategic thinking is needed.
Micron is known for having an insular corporate culture that nearly always promotes it's executives from within. It might be time to break from that tradition.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
