(November 30, 2016) Digital transformation is something companies have been doing for decades. Every 10 to 15 years companies witness a significant shift in technology. If this is the case, why is there so much talk of digital transformation now and what's different about it today?


(November, 2016) In late May, I had the opportunity to chair the first enterprise transformation 6 conference. The conference was formally known as M6 mobility Exchange. The change in name reflects what I see as a change in times. Mobility was a discreet entity that was isolated from the business. Today I see mobile as just one part of an overarching enterprise transformation that includes cloud computing, big data, and analytics. It also extends to the new world of cognitive computing, machine learning, and augmented/virtual reality...

 
(December , 2016) I was on a high-rise construction site 34-floors above the city. I was talking to the construction crew when a fight broke out. There was an explosion and the floor collapsed. I removed the virtual reality (VR) goggles and laughed. It was so real. The VR solutions provided an incredible experience, almost like being there. As good as my experience was, it was not reality. It was a controlled pre-programmed experience - a notional idea. Today, however, VR, sensors and sensory feedback technologies enable a notional idea to become reality - a Real-Reality...
 
(December 15, 2016) Forty months is not a lot of time to design, develop and deliver something monumental. Consider that it took 182 years to build the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, 20 years to build the Great Pyramid of Giza and 10 years to build the Panama Canal. Executives from digital-leading companies, however, tell us that in just over three years - the year 2020 - 17 different digital technologies will dramatically impact the way they work, and transform the work that gets done, so we don't have much time...
 
(November 28, 2016) Almost a year ago, I wrote these words, "Technology has reached the tipping point for me, it moved from a help to a hindrance." The plethora of adrenaline and endorphin inducing mobile apps, 24x7 news, notifications, alerts and updates, drip fed my brain and hindered my "deep work and deep thoughts." In Cal Newport's new book titled, "Deep Work" he posits that most knowledge workers need concentration and substantial time, dedicated and uninterrupted, to produce their best work. He argues that a lot of technologies and open office layouts today inhibit creativity, "deep work" and "deep thoughts," and are the very things that are most highly valued, and one of the key differentiators between humans and robots...
 
(CIO.com, Dec. 2, 2016) Enterprise and industrial internet of things. Is your business ready? It can be very overwhelming when thinking about IoT for your business, especially because IoT is such a broad and all-encompassing term that encompasses various markets and technologies, and is even used for both consumer and business discussions...




 
(Computerworld, Dec. 14, 2017) Carriers are increasingly looking to supplement the connectivity subscriptions that they sell in order to increase per user revenues and return to the impressive growth days of the past. 

However there is a fundamental business challenge facing all carriers: Just how many more phones and phone subscriptions will people buy in a maturing/saturating market? And while the future potential revenues from consumer IoT is large due to the sheer volume of devices, it doesn't have the same premiums or margins as a relatively pricey smartphone plan. So carriers are left searching for other revenue opportunities...


 
(CIO.com - November 30, 2016) In his 1964 opinion about why the film The Lovers was not obscene, Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart offered a memorable statement on his own legal threshold for obscenity: "I know it when I see it."

That mindset -- "I know it when I see it" -- has been embraced by CIOs when it comes to innovation. In the CIO Executive Council's 2016 IT Innovation Survey, 56 percent of the IT leaders polled said they believe that the definition of innovation changes according to the situation and application. And 24 percent said that there is no specific definition for innovation at all, and that it can only be observed through its impact and delivered value...
