The Client-to-Cloud Revolution Will Change Computing

TIFCA and its membership are enabling a world of any place, any time, and any device user experiences that are delivered through create-once reach-all content and applications across all platforms. This world will be driven by a robust client-cloud ecosystem that makes it possible for users and creators to do new and amazing things.

The journey to this future is the Client-to-Cloud Revolution. Here are just some of the benefits this next computing era will bring.

BIGGER Audience

TIFCA - We enable what's next!

Compute market size will grow because:

  • Cloud-enhanced devices will do more.
  • Reduced up-front costs for users to take advantage.
  • Lower cost + better products = bigger audience!

Lose the Wait

TIFCA - We enable what's next!

The Client-to-Cloud Revolution enables:

  • High quality graphics and processor-intensive applications.
  • Huge performance in all form factors.
  • Regular and nearly immediate user-wide computing upgrades.

More Resources

TIFCA - We enable what's next!

The Client-to-Cloud Revolution would make it possible for application creators to:

  • Do what couldn’t be done.
  • Create with readily available compute horesepower to match!
  • Think beyond the abilities of any single box or device.

Easier to Publish

TIFCA - We enable what's next!

A Write-Once, Reach Many Device ecosystem would:

  • Improve product quality.
  • Make it possible to reach a bigger audience all at once.
  • Reduce the stress of coding for so many separate platforms all at once.

ALL DEVICES Will be Empowered

SHOWN LEFT: Compute horsepower comparison

  • PC is always ahead of the pack.
  • Console is 3-5 years behind PC.
  • Mobile is 10 years behind PC.

Imagine if these platforms shared the same ability at the same time!

What the Client-to-Cloud Revolution means for computing.

Sales Growth

TIFCA - We enable what's next!

A write-once, reach many device ecosystem makes it possible to:

  • Reach all instead of just some device platforms.
  • Earn more revenue from more platforms at a time.
  • Benefit from what each platform has to offer.
  • Users get applications faster and with more ease.

Higher Quality

TIFCA - We enable what's next!

Application and content developers are cutting corners because they are having to code for countless platforms separately and at once. A write-once, reach many device ecosystem would make it possible for developers to:

  • Code for all platforms to their FULL ability.
  • Increase customer satisfaction on all compute devices.
  • Reduce the number of software bugs caused by lack of time to do things properly.
  • Make application and content creation a more enjoyable process.

Scalable Processing

TIFCA - We enable what's next!

A collaborative client-cloud ecosystem improves compute economics:

  • Processing can be regularly enhanced in cloud & data centers in addition to 1:1 user purchases.
  • Client devices sell and do more both locally and through client-cloud enhancement.
  • Product sales cycles shorten and happen more often across the computing ecosystem.
  • New high-demand innovations are more readily supportable in short term.

ESTIMATE: Three to five million premium graphics cards are sold each year.
GAMES CONSOLE SALES RECORD: 159 million units.
POTENTIAL: Multiply the total addressable market.

Economic Growth

TIFCA - We enable what's next!

Everyone benefits from this new era of computing!

  • Cloud service providers have more to sell and to more people
  • Device makers do more for their users
  • Technology makers can scale more and more often
  • Application and content creators reach a far bigger audience
  • Infrastructures like 5G, Wifi6, and broadband have greater justification and purpose.

Environmentally Sound

TIFCA - We enable what's next!

The Client-to-Cloud Revolution is more environmentally friendly because:

  • A client-cloud ecosystem can be more efficiently run than local client devices alone.
  • Cloud can be designed to be environmentally friendly as it scales.
  • It reduces the amount of E-Waste associated with technology and computing.
  • Power sources can be chosen wisely for the Client-to-Cloud Revolution.

Everyone is Enabled

TIFCA - We enable what's next!

In an enabled Client-to-Cloud World:

  • Mobile immersive devices would benefit from premium compute ability.
  • Innovators get their compute needs right away.
  • Startup to viability would happen faster for bleeding edge technologies of all sizes.

It’s Time For Computing to Evolve

Why this revolution needs YOU:

  • The fundamentals of computing need to grow and change!
  • The benefits to the whole ecosystem are abundantly clear.
  • The Client-to-Cloud Revolution requires seamless communication and interoperability between client and cloud and everything in-between to work.

The Client-to-Cloud Revolution will change computing and the computing world as we know it, and this journey is beyond the abilities of any one company.

Working together as a collaborative ecosystem in TIFCA,
this revolution will be a reality.
