Systems of Innovation for Ongoing Digital Transformation Information technology (IT) advances are transforming the way we innovate in business, thereby disrupting the old guard and their predictable status-quo. It’s creating global market turbulence. Industries are converging, and new opportunities and threats are emerging, like never before. So, how are savvy chief information officers (CIOs) leading this transition? Back in 2015, the IBM Institute for Business Value conducted a market study that included the findings from over 1,800 CIO interviews from around the globe. The resulting insights are worthy of revisiting today, as we consider the digital business transformation outlook in 2017. Introduction to the Torchbearer CIO CIOs realize the barriers between formerly distinct industries are collapsing, as organizations in one sector apply their expertise to others ... (more)

Insurance Industry's #DigitalTransformation | @CloudExpo @AppDynamics #ML

Digital Transformation in the Insurance Industry By Omed Habib The insurance industry is well aware that digital transformation is coming, even if some CIOs can’t really say what their individual companies will look like at the end of it all. In a survey of thousands of C-level execs around the world, insurance came in among the top five industries that are most likely to see “moderate to massive” digital disruption within the next 12 months. Only 20 percent of business leaders felt that they had the talent they needed to transform the enterprise, though. Here’s a closer look at what’s coming next in the exciting new era of software-defined insurance companies. The Growth of the Insurance Model The basic business model of the insurance industry hasn’t changed much since Edward Lloyd opened his coffee shop for seafaring folk in London in 1688. In the decades after Sh... (more)

However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what' of digital transformation to the ‘how' to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it's important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cloud, and create a digital technology platform.

The Three Tsunamis of #DigitalTransformation | @CloudExpo #IoT #M2M #AI

The Three Tsunamis of Digital Transformation - The Details Are in the Data Change is hard, and many of us procrastinate, make excuses or lag behind. Today, we simply can't. Digital technologies are no longer "nice-to-have" tools of the business - today they are the business. Digital laggards are already finding their markets disrupted and their abilities to compete overturned. As they desperately try to outrun the Darwinian effect of their slow responses, they are faced with not one but three periods - or ages - of digital transformation to navigate - disruptive transformation, hyper-digital transformation and ubiquitous transformation.  Understanding these three ages, and when they will emerge, is critical for business success. Some may argue digital transformation started 70 years ago with ENIAC, the first commercially available computer, while others argue it start... (more)

WebPerf 101: #JavaScript | @CloudExpo #Catchpoint #DevOps #CD #WebPerf

Web Performance 101: Optimizing JavaScript By Kameerath Kareem JavaScript redefined web applications ushering in a new era of dynamic websites with fluid responsive designs. It has gained a strong following among developers, popular libraries and frameworks like JQuery and Angular JS are all built with JavaScript. The endless design possibilities that JavaScript provides coupled with the numerous libraries available today makes it an indispensable part of web application development. Why JavaScript? Today, almost every website uses JavaScript to provide an interactive digital experience. JavaScript made it possible to refresh/load sections of the page without having to reload the entire page every time the user clicks on a button or submits a form. Since scripts can manipulate DOM elements, it gave the developers more flexibility in designing and coding applications. ... (more)

Digital Technologies for the Greater Good | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #DigitalTransformation

Adam Smith wrote about rational self-interest, which posits we work together for the greater good when it benefits ourselves. Does this concept translate to robots, automation and employment? I think it does. I believe most of us would agree that replacing large numbers of humans with machines that result in wide scale unemployment and suffering is not in our rational self-interest. Having massive numbers of jobs terminated by the Terminator does not result in a safer, healthier civilization or vibrant economy; therefore, it is not in our best interest. Just because something is possible, does not mean it is good. A powerful king that takes all the food, property and means of production away from his people resulting in their suffering, quickly becomes a target of their wrath, and on a quick path to obsolescence. Businesses that replace human workers with machines an... (more)

Enterprise #DevOps Journey of @Amdocs | @DevOpsSummit #AI #Microservices

Enterprise DevOps Journey, The Things No One Told Me... When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Amir Fried, Software Architect at Amdocs, will take you through Amdocs past, present and future, sharing valuable insights. Speaker Bio Amir Fried is a Software Architect at Amdocs, a company with more than 25,000 employees serving customers in over 90 countries. He is... (more)
