Importance of Thinking Differently…Hint: Don’t Pave the Cow Path

Moo…There is this very intriguing Enterprise Car Rental commercial on TV (I’m old school and still watch my commercials on a television) that shows a glimpse into future driving behaviors enabled by autonomous vehicles (see Figure 1).Figure 1:…See More

Smart Manufacturing and What It Means to Win the 1% Race

I had the great fortune to sit on an Ericsson-Wired Magazine panel with some outstanding thought leaders to debate the ramifications of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.  We debated whether the era was a revolution or just an evolution (I argued revolution because it will force organizations to think differently about their business and operational models) and whether IoT had failed so far (I said that to date it had “under-performed” from a business value perspective).  Members of the panel…See More

In Big Data, It’s Not the Volume that’s Important, It’s the Granularity

In many of my presentations and lectures, I have made the following declaration:In Big Data, it isn’t the volume of data that’s interesting, it’s the granularity; it’s the ability to build detailed analytic or behavioral profiles on every human and every device that ultimately drives monetization.Ever-larger volumes of aggregated data enable organizations to spot trends – what products are hot, what movies or TV shows are trendy, what restaurants or destinations are popular, etc.  This is all…See More

Data Curation: Weaving Raw Data into Business Gold

The Big Data craze caught fire with a provocative declaration that “Data is the New Oil”; that data will fuel the economic growth in the 21stcentury in much the same way that oil fueled the economic growth of the 20thcentury.  The “New Oil” analogy was a great way to contextualize the economic value of data; to give the Big Data conversation an easily recognizable face.  The Economist recently declared data “…See More

Why Data Science Development Process is like Playing Game Boy® Final Fantasy

Describing the Data Science analytics development process has always been a struggle for me.  The corporate world is full of linear processes.  Major monolithic enterprise applications – ERP, MRP, SFA, CRM systems – have been architected to reduce operational complexity via a series of interlocking, heavily-engineered (and re-engineered) linear processes (though I suspect that anyone who has survived an SAP ERP implementation would take issue with my “reduce operational complexity”…See More

Real-World Data Science Challenge: When Is “Good Enough” Actually “Good Enough”

Nothing like a devastating catastrophe to bring a bit of reality into the world of IoT and data science.  The recent crashes of the new Boeing 737 Max have been attributed to a single point of failure – a sensor – in the design of the complex navigation system[1]. To summarize the situation:Boeing’s new 737 MAX included larger, more efficient engines than the previous generation and as such, the engines were placed on a different location on the wings affecting the…See More

Interweaving Design Thinking and Data Science to Unleash Economic Value of Data

Posted on April 28, 2019 at 11:54am 0 Comments

Did you ever have a concept that you knew was right, but just couldn’t find the right words to articulate that concept?  Okay, well welcome to my nightmare.  I know that Data Science and Design Thinking share many common characteristics including the power of “might” (i.e., that “might” be a better predictor of performance), “learning through failing” (which is the only way to determine where the edges of the solution really reside), and the innovation liberation…
