Technology Isn't the Answer to Surviving Digital Disruption Guest post by Charles Araujo, Principal Analyst, Intellyx There's a funny thing about digital transformation: we are simultaneously over-hyping it and understating it. On the one hand, every tech company in the world is talking about it. It doesn't matter how mundane the technology; every company is somehow relating their products to digital transformation. On the other, many people are failing to grasp the import and impact of what digital transformation really means. In far too many cases, business and IT leaders are dismissing it as nothing more than a marketing ploy. The unfortunate result is that the over-hypedness of digital transformation is obscuring its real meaning. This dichotomy is most apparent in what I call the tech company fallacy. Everywhere I turn, I hear another company executive make a procl... (more)

Digital Business Architecture | @CloudExpo #AI #ML #DigitalTransformation

Competitive Value: Unlocking Your Digital Business Architecture Guest post by Charles Araujo, Principal Analyst, Intellyx IT leaders face a monumental challenge. They must figure out how to sort through the cacophony of new technologies, buzzwords, and industry hype to find the right digital path forward for their organizations. And they simply cannot afford to fail. Those organizations that are fastest to the right digital path will be the ones that win.

Bursting Gartner’s ‘Algorithm Economy’ Bubble | @CloudExpo #Cloud #MachineLearning

Remember Mad Libs? You'd get a book that contained paragraphs with key words missing, replaced with hints as to what might fill the blanks. You and your friends would come up with silly words to complete the sentences, with predictably hilarious results. Well, it's time for some Gartner Mad Libs. For this game, the same word belongs in all the blanks. See if you can figure out what the missing word is (here's the source if you can't resist peeking). The current software ecosystem allows only whole products to be commercialized - not functions or features.... While the number of e... (more)

Spread the DevOps Virus | @DevOpsSummit #Agile #DevOps #Microservices

Finally, the conclusion: part two of my Cortex newsletter, Spread the DevOps Virus in Your Organization. In part one, I called for expanding the hard-fought organizational lessons of DevOps to the rest of the enterprise. Allow people to choose their own teams, and to allow teams to choose their own goals, I exhorted - self-organization being the key to driving agility at the organizational level. That article, however, focused on the participants on such teams. What does it mean for you as an individual to join with colleagues and organize yourselves into teams that can address ... (more)

Making the Digital Enterprise a Reality | @CloudExpo #DigitalTransformation

Guest post by Intellyx Principal Analyst Charles Araujo The reason I believe digital transformation is not only more than a fad, but is actually a life-or-death imperative for every business and IT executive on the planet is simple: there will be no place for an "industrial enterprise" in a digital world. Transformation, by definition, is a metamorphosis from one state to another, wholly new state. As such, a true digital transformation must be the act of transforming an industrial-era organization into something wholly different - the Digital Enterprise. Digital transformation ... (more)
