What enterprises will focus on for digital transformation in 2018

Last year saw what was perhaps the highest water mark for sense of urgency and desire for faster delivery on results when it came to digital transformation: Customers, internal and external both, are demanding much more these days, with the bar set by the customer experience leaders like Apple, Amazon, and Google. What's more, customers want their expectations to be delivered on far more rapidly that ever before.

All of this has put increasing pressure on IT and business leaders to scale up their ambitions this year while beginning to tackle the end game, or more accurately the end-of-the-beginning game: Truly reorganizing their traditional business models from the ground up into a more coherent and effective set of digital products and services that will grow faster than the traditional line of business. Now the urgency is to get there in the next year or two, before potential disruption by a startup or newly transformed competitor.

To get breakthrough results fast, while inspiring and engaging employees, leaders should adopt agile approaches—for example, mapping customer pain points, establishing cross-functional teams, and establishing new ways of working, such as two-week “sprints,” obstacle boards, and minimum viable products. At the same time, they must leverage digital technologies to improve the customer experience and simplify workflows.

Reinventing for the future can entail a wide range of initiatives to transform, including boosting growth, launching a new business model, revamping commercial processes or operations, building digital capabilities and ventures, and transforming critical processes, such as R&D, and internal support functions, such as IT and HR.

The digital Imperative
Prototype your strategy

Technology is driving the digital imperative. But that doesn’t mean there are turnkey technical solutions. Winning at digital transformation requires strategic thinking and deep insight into business fundamentals and the dynamics of competitive advantage.

How companies craft a strategy in the digital age also needs to change. The economics of digital transformation are rapidly evolving, enabling new moves and transforming entire industries.

Where are digital efforts focused?

Digital technology, despite its seeming ubiquity, has only begun to penetrate industries. As it continues its advance, the implications for revenues, profits, and opportunities will be dramatic.

McKinsey reseach shows that ...
Distribution channels and marketing are the primary focus of digital strategies (and thus investments) at 49 percent of companies. That focus is sensible, given the extraordinary impact digitization has already had on customer interactions and the power of digital tools to target marketing investments precisely. By now, in fact, this critical dimension has become “table stakes” for staying in the game. Standing pat is not an option.

The question, it seems, looking at exhibits 4 and 5 in combination, is whether companies are overlooking emerging opportunities, such as those in supply chains, that are likely to have a major influence on future revenues and profits. That may call for resource reallocation. In general, companies that strategically shift resources create more value and deliver higher returns to shareholders. This general finding could be even more true as digitization progresses.

Facebook invente sa propre unité de temps..

Dans le cas d'un film tourné en 24 images par seconde, un vingt-quatrième de seconde correspond approximativement à 0.041666. Le nombre de chiffres derrière la virgule est infini, et les ingénieurs sont forcés d'arrondir le résultat à 0.04167.

C'est là que le flick prend tout son sens: un vingt-quatrième de seconde correspond exactement à 29.400.000 flicks. Un flick est divisible par toutes les fréquences les plus courantes dans le milieu de l'audiovisuel: 60, 44.1, 90, ou encore 120.

Raisonner en flick et non plus en secondes permet donc aux ingénieurs d'obtenir des chiffres ronds lorsqu'ils divisent l'unité de temps. Il devient possible d'isoler parfaitement chaque image fixe et chaque échantillon de son. L'image, le son et les animations peuvent alors être synchronisés avec une précision millimétrée, bien qu'ils défilent à des vitesses différentes.

Les informations nécessaires à l'utilisation de flick ont été publiées en Open Source par Facebook sur le site GitHub.

AWS: digital access will be human-centric, with the first step being voice.

Announcing the launch of Alexa for Business at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas on Thursday, Amazon CTO Werner Vogels described a future where technology and digital access is defined by human centricity, and said it starts with voice, the most natural way of interacting.

The CTO described a future that isn't as distant as it once was, where surgeons can talk to equipment while performing surgery, or parents can "scream" at their devices while dealing with a busy schedule.

"What voice will do is allow you to have a normal, natural way of communicating," Vogels said. "We are talking, this isn't a Slack channel."

"Voice is the key disruption."

He said, however, that digital systems are being limited in their application to digital users and that it is up to organisations to make sure a human-centric approach is taken when developing new products for the end-user.

All systems of interconnected IoT devices can use blockchains to effectively and reliably organise, store and share streams of data.

Blockchain adoption According to Igor Illunin, head of IoT practice at DataArt, blockchain has the potential to transform organisation's ability to leverage their IoT’s assets. He said: "Blockchain technology carries the potential to take IoT's ability to help companies target consumers more efficiently to the next level.

Bitcoin start-ups

Meet The Bitcoin Queen Of Switzerland's Crypto Valley

Feldmeier is busy launching a investment-centric startup for blockchain-based assets called Smart Valor. “There are a lot of good investment opportunities that are not accessible today,” Feldmeier said. “We’re building a decentralized marketplace for tokenized, alternative investments.” This Swiss startup aims to have its new platform online by 2018. In the meantime, it is working with select venture capital clients. Her startup’s unofficial mantras are: liquidity, accessibility and building a secure legal framework.

“Blockchain technology is a foundational technology. It will take a long time, many years, to build these foundations,” Feldmeier said. And she is in it for the long haul. Feldmeier hopes to someday see non-accredited investors, aka people who aren’t wealthy, leveraging blockchain identities and blockchain-based land registries to help access more opportunities. Today, many types of tech-savvy investments are restricted to accredited investors and institutions. Blockchain technology could rebuild the heavily regulated investment landscape from the ground up.
