So Much Data, So Little Time. Until Now.

Daniel Burrus

In a way, the exponential growth of machine-to-machine communications with connected sensors, or what is called the Internet of Things (IoT), has become an example of too much of a good thing. Fortunately, a concept called Edge Computing can make sense of, and put to use, the wealth of data taken from IoT. The result is not limited merely to faster processing and analysis of important data.

The Internet of YOU

Technology Created

The Internet. When you think of the changes its brought into our lives, it really does give one pause. The definition of “oeuvre”? Symptoms of meningitis? The web is a first class citizen in your toolbox to do these and many more amazing things. But perhaps the aspect of the Internet that holds the most promise is that it’s an amazing platform.

Because of this, many industries will either be agile , reacting to an ever-increasing number of 5G innovators disrupting their industry, or they will be anticipatory innovators and use the predictability of 5G capabilities to become the disruptor. The first generation (1G) of wireless came with the introduction of cell phones constrained to phone calls and high-level executives. The cost is of most concern in many cases.

Making Risk Management Less Risky with Anticipation

Daniel Burrus

One of the central principles of the Anticipatory Organization Model is to move beyond the idea of mere competition. By that, I mean going past the idea of measuring your organization’s success and performance against others. In so doing, by being anticipatory you redefine the concept of risk management. No matter its core philosophy, every organization recognizes that an element of risk is necessary for success. The Result: A New Form of Risk Management.

The Evolution of Digital Transformation and the CIO

Our elementary vision of it is of fish growing legs, crawling out of the muck as alligators turning into rodents then monkeys then apes and finally something resembling people. Of course, this is not how it works. On one hand, it requires billions of mutations spread over millions of organisms. Both types of evolution are relevant when looking at digital transformational and the role of the CIO. Evolution is an often misunderstood concept.

Linda Bernardi

Intel as a chip manufacturer (the ‘thing’ that goes into all other things) is a natural player in IoT, but for the last few years has taken a back seat in this space. With a price tag of $15B (not a normal spend by Intel) one might say this is significant.

Disaster: CEO’s Ignoring Digital Innovation

Gregg Fraley

Innovation + Business + Technology = Digital Leadership. Turnover of CEOs is already high, about 14.9 % a year as of 2016*. The demands of digital leadership and the enterprises of the future could dramatically accelerate that rate in the next few years. The conversation CEOs need to be having, to remain in the shrinking 85.1%, is about how to integrate digital technology and seize new pathways to industry leadership.

Keeping Up is a Fool’s Game

Daniel Burrus

By using metrics, a business will study the practices, designs, and financial outcomes of industry leaders with one distinct purpose: To keep up with the pacesetters. However, there is a third question to ask yourself – and it’s key to moving past the pacesetters: What’s the likely progression of the industry as a whole? Asking these questions enables you to go beyond your competition and get off the treadmill of keeping up.

Artificial Intelligence: Disruption or Opportunity?

Daniel Burrus

Artificial intelligence (AI), one of twenty core technologies I identified back in 1983 as the drivers of exponential economic value creation, has worked its way into our lives. IBM’s Watson is a good example of a fast-developing AI system. IBM Watson first shot to fame back in 2011 by beating two of Jeopardy’s greatest champions on TV. The key is not to react to change, but to get ahead of it by paying attention to Hard Trends.

Smart Cities – Seeing the Invisible and Doing the Impossible

Daniel Burrus

But we all know the impossible isn’t completely out of reach. When we develop this sort of understanding, previously unknown opportunities and solutions become clear — doing the impossible then becomes just a matter of commonsense problem-solving. A new iteration of this concept is appearing in cities around the world. By making our cities part of the Internet of Things (IoT), we can gather high-speed data analytics and transform our cities into smart cities.

Changes in Manufacturing: How Will Different Generations Adapt?

In recent years, the change curve of manufacturing has gone from a static line to an extreme slope.

Daniel Burrus

Two of the biggest Hard Trends right now are around organizations moving their data into the cloud and the very real increase in online security disruption threats we face on a daily basis.

Mapping the customer journey is the top driver for digital transformation

Paul Hobcraft

Organizations are struggling to understand the behaviors of the ‘connected’ customer. The lack of having a well mapped out customer journey means missing out on opportunities caused by not knowing this complete set of connections being made into you. Also, how comfortable are you as new customers start connecting – can you have any certainty of the reasons why they did, what decided this and what might hold them for the future of a repeating business?

The Billion Dollar Breakthrough You Missed

Gregg Fraley

Fresh combinations of technologies, processes, materials, people, trends, concepts, and other factors are what creates innovation. From the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup (chocolate plus peanut butter) to the iPod (MP3 player combined with a buying system, iTunes) nearly any innovation combines existing things or concepts. It’s interesting that large organizations with lots of intellectual property don’t systematically examine what they can combine to innovate.

Why Communication is the Key to Enterprise Innovation?

IdeaScale

According to Harvard Business School professor Clay Christensen, 95% of all product innovations fail after their release on the market. Too often, today’s innovators are developing new products in a vacuum—isolated from the real world and without consideration of how their buyers will actually use what they’ve devoted their time, labor force and resources to create. Once again, the sheer size of enterprise-level operations works against its ability to effectively communicate.

“The greatest advances in human civilization have come when we recovered what we had lost: when we learned the lessons of history.” The iPhone was five months old, Twitter was barely on the horizon, much of what we consider intrinsic in our daily lives today was not really present at all. Many great innovators of the past have trumpeted a disdain for the study of history. Napoleon said “History is a set of lies agreed upon.” What about a student of technology?
