Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE Seven Criteria for Evaluating a Blockchain Business The insane world of cryptocurrency may be chock full of schemers, scammers, and sharks, but there is more to the world of blockchain than crypto. In fact, the blockchain story is bifurcating, with crypto and all its craziness on one side, and enterprise blockchain on the other. While it may be fun to poke our stick at the former, Intellyx’s focus is on enterprise digital transformation – which means that bona fide blockchain-based business models are a key part of this ongoing story of disruption. Regardless, we receive numerous pitches every day from all manner of blockchain-based companies, from the most serious to the silliest. When we set up a briefing with one of them, we need to quickly determine which camp it belongs in: serious enterprise play or crazy crypto? W... (more)

Should AI Fool You? | @ExpoDX #ArtificialIntelligence #DigitalTransformation

In the 67 years since Alan Turing proposed his Imitation Game - the infamous ‘Turing test' for artificial intelligence (AI) - people have been confused over the very purpose of AI itself.

If you've followed our work here at Intellyx, you'll know that we think that these proclamations are naive at best - and delusional, at worst. True digital transformation is a capability organizations must build and sustain, not a project that they can complete. N... (more)

2018 May Finally Be the Year of the CIO | @ExpoDX #AI #DigitalTransformation

For most of the last decade, there has been a steady drumbeat of predictions about the demise of the Chief Information Officer (CIO). Whether it was the rise of the cloud, the emergence of the Chief Digital Officer or the promise of artificial intelligence, there has been a chorus of people claiming that the CIO role would imminently become antiquated and unnecessary. As you would expect, there was also a counter-chorus (made up mostly of IT executives) proclaiming the critical nature of the CIO role and why it was finally time for them to ascend to the top echelons of enterprise ...

In Search of the Elusive ‘Citizen Integrator’ | @CloudExpo #DigitalTransformation

Normal 0 false false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE The rise of the market for No-Code platforms and tools has given rise to a burgeoning population of ‘citizen developers’ – non-technical business personnel who can use these platforms to build an increasingly powerful set of business applications without writing a line of code. As this market matures, different platforms focus on different challenges. As a result, a wider range of ‘citizen’ roles also evolve, such as citizen process creators and citizen data analysts. High on this list: the new role of citizen integrator. A ci... (more)
