Many of us have returned to the office after working remotely during the pandemic. It’s energizing to connect again with colleagues and see familiar faces.

In our Autumn issue, i3 talks with Managing Director for HP North America, Stephanie Dismore, who discusses HP’s channel first strategy, the company’s diversity and inclusion initiatives and how HP responded to the rise of remote education during the pandemic. She also discusses if the industry-wide semiconductor shortage will pressure holiday sales.

Our lead feature delves into the 5G rollout, how it is progressing and some unique 5G applications. We also examine how LiDAR is improving the driving experience making it safer. Although there are many competitors and business models, some LiDAR makers are looking beyond vehicles to smart city infrastructure applications for their technologies.

What’s more we look into quantum computing, gesture control, the future of augmented reality and the latest CTA research on the supply chain. CTA analysts also look at the factors consumers weigh as they consider whether they should install a project themselves or hire a professional. Our Market Beat and Stats & Facts columns take a deep dive into the variables that determine this decision.
