Today’s episode features an interview between Matt Trifiro and Fay Arjomandi, Founder, President, and CEO of mimik technology.
Fay is a serial entrepreneur, multiple-time CEO, and authoritative voice in the tech industry. She is an official member of the Forbes Technology Council, and recently received the State of the Edge and Edge Computing World 2020 Edge Woman of the Year Award.
In this interview, Fay discusses the origins of mimik’s hybrid edge cloud computing application development platform, and how it is enabling digital transformation and helping build a socially and economically sustainable applications ecosystem.
“We are a big supporter of ecosystem. That’s number one. We’re basically saying that the opportunity is way bigger than one single company winning everything…We think this is an ecosystem play, and the opportunity is quite lucrative for everybody.”
“We believe in the ecosystem that is like a Bazaar. Everybody defines their own set of things that they sell, and the consumer can pick and choose different parts of the product that they want from different entities and different companies. But the Bazaar itself goes by a set of regulations.”
“The fast pace of the world is why restful APIs are so important, because there is so much we don’t know. We don’t know what we don’t know. And I think that’s one of the challenges of enterprises right now, it’s almost like ‘Okay, I need to do my digital transformation. Where do I start?’”
“Restful API has become so important and defining an architectural pattern of microservices has become so important, because that allows people to iterate on design, development, and delivery and integration with the rest of the world.”
“When people say ‘What does mimik do?’ We say simply, we enable microservice development on any device. Because that is the key in terms of market adoption of digital solutions in a sustainable and systematic approach.”
