Prioritization Matrix:  Aligning Business and IT On The Big Data Journey

One key challenge to a successful Big Data journey is gaining consensus and alignment between the business and IT stakeholders in identifying the initial big data business use cases that 1) deliver sufficient value to the business, while 2) possessing a high probability of success.  One can find multiple business use cases where big data and advanced analytics can deliver compelling business value.  However, many of these use cases have a low probability of…

It's Not Digital Transformation; It’s “Intelligence Transformation” We Seek

Forrester published a report titled “The Sorry State of Digital Transformation in 2018” (love the brashness of the title) that found that 21% of 1,559 business and IT decision makers consider their digital transformations complete.  Complete? Say what?!

Using Design to Drive Business Outcomes, or Uncovering What You Don’t Know That You Already Know

Okay, that may be the most complicated title that I’ve ever read, but here’s the point of that title:  Most people don’t know what they already know.  Maybe spun another way, is that people don’t realize how much they really know, that much of what they really know is buried behind general rules, rules of thumbs and simple heuristics.  But those heuristics get in the way of one’s real knowledge.  And that’s the real secret to effective…

Why is it so hard to change, especially from a business perspective? Why is it so hard to understand that new technology capabilities can enable new technology approaches?  And nowhere is that more evident than in how companies are trying (and failing) to apply the old school “Big Bang” approach to Big Data Analytic projects.

5 Questions that Define Your Digital Transformation

I had the opportunity in 2017 to give a 10-minute keynote at DataWorks Summit 2017.  I know what most of you are thinking: Schmarzo can barely introduce himself in 10 minutes! What sort of keynote could he give in just 10 minutes?  And to be honest, I too struggled with what to say.

But after some brainstorming, I decided to pose 5 questions that every organization needs to consider as they prepare themselves for digital transformation.  And…

In particular, Gartner believes that “By 2020, on-premises Internet of Things (IoT) platforms coupled with edge computing will account for up to 60% of industrial IoT (IIoT) analytics, up from less than 10% today.”[1]
