The 12 Step Plan for Digital Transformation Speed | @ExpoDX #DX #AI #ML

The 12 Step Plan for Digital Transformation Speed It took Magellan's crew three years sailing ships to circumnavigate the earth. Today, at hypersonic speeds of 7,680 MPH, it takes just over three hours to circumnavigate the earth.  Data on the Internet, however, travels at 670 million MPH, which means it only takes milliseconds to circumnavigate the earth. In this age of digital businesses and digital interactions, companies must digitally transform to work effectively in a world where mass information moves at these unimaginable speeds. It's not just IT systems that are impacted by the volume and speed of information. The creators of business processes that were designed and developed in an analog area, simply never envisioned a business environment that would require these operational tempos. Analog business processes were designed to have humans involved. These d... (more)

How Blockchain Is Changing the Retail Industry | @CloudExpo #DX #FinTech #Blockchain

Blockchain offers impeccable security with its cryptography-based decentralized system as well as the plethora of possible uses retailers could exploit in the near future. In a world of increasing cyberattacks, internet fraud and online hacking, blockchain comes as a breath of fresh air. With its encrypted data and decentralized network system, it's a thorn in every hacker's side. Generally being associated with the finance sector, blockchain is now taking retail by storm. It's on a course that will change the retail industry as we know it. But how exactly is it going to achieve such a feat? First of all, what is blockchain? Well, blockchain is a digital ledger which stores its data in the form of interlinked blocks. Each block contains a timestamp of its transaction along with the transaction data. The links between the blocks are secured by using encryption, which... (more)

The Internet of Things in Your Driveway | @ThingsExpo #AI #IoT #IIoT #M2M

The Internet of Things in Your Driveway By 2020, 90 percent of all new cars will have some sort of built-in connectivity platform, and by 2022, there will be 1.8 billion automotive M2M connections. As cars join the Internet of Things, cars will stop being independent entities and will become part of a larger, connected ecosystem. Cars as part of the IoT isn't just a look into the future - it's already happening. "Everything that moves will become autonomic, it's just a matter of time," says Vishnu Andhare, Consulting Manager at ISG, a global technology research and advisory firm. Andhare notes that all of the big automotive players are already moving towards a future of shared mobility, and mobility-as-a-service - although it will take time. "In the future, it will not be limited by technology, but by the psychological barrier, and by public policy," he says. "the... (more)

What Artificial Intelligence Can Teach Us About Ourselves | @CloudExpo #AI #DX #ML

Most of us understand that artificial intelligence (AI) offers opportunities for productivity improvements in the form of speed, automation, standardized actions and responses, plus the opportunity for continuous improvements via machine learning. These opportunities are enabled by data inputs that are analyzed and processed through AI algorithms that execute a desired decision and action. For all of the great capabilities and benefits that AI can provide, there is also a potential dark side. AI solutions can easily codify our prejudices, bias, gender stereotypes and promote injustices intentionally or unintentionally. This threat, as real and serious as it is, can also be seen as an opportunity to evaluate who we are, what we want the future to look like, and then codify a better tomorrow. Let's first take a look at what makes us human. When we interact with other ... (more)

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here The Road to a Cloud Adoption and Digital Transformation In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail - with "legacy" technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a leader in the space, it's necessary to accommodate, incorporate, and exploit the new breed of enterprise technologies - cloud, Big Data, and APIs.

AI and #DigitalTransformation | @ExpoDX #FinTech #AI #ArtificialIntelligence

Fingerspitzengefühl: A German word used to describe the ability to maintain attention to detail in an ever-changing operational and tactical environment by maintaining real-time situational awareness. The term is synonymous with the English expression of "keeping one's finger on the pulse".  The problem with fingerspitzengefühl traditionally, in addition to pronouncing it, has been it is hard for an individual to scale up. Today that is changing.  In a world of sensors, AI and mobile devices, having real-time situational awareness is far easier than ever before.  In fact, today the challenge is not how to do it, but what to do with the massive volume of data that can be provided. Data comes from many different sources, especially considering field services where work is often mobile, remote and dynamic.  If more data can be captured and added to a typical GPS coordi...
