Voice interfaces like Alexa and Siri have been adopted faster than almost any other technology in history — even surpassing the smartphone in their four-year trajectory. Approximately one-quarter to one-third of the U.S. population already owns a smart speaker like the Echo or Google Home; the global number of installed smart speakers is going to more than double to 225 million units in two years. But to be revolutionary, they will need to find a greater calling — a new, breakout application.

Last Thursday saw the SFBJ Fastest Growing Tech company and CIO awards event. The remarkable thing about this event is the insight it provides into our local tech community. The top 20 fastest growing companies added well over $100 Million in revenue to their bottom lines for the previous 12 months. This bodes well for local hiring and job growth.
Watch this space for some terrific upcoming job opportunities.
Also of note was the award for Best CIO of a company over $50M – it went to past-president and current board member of the CIO Council of South Florida, Mr. Charles Grau, CIO UDT.
