The research firm Technology Business Research (TBR) recently came out with a report titled, “Winning The Business Of Digital Transformation Services Requires A Process-Led Approach” authored by Sebastian Lagana and Jennifer Hamel. The report is full of good nuggets, but I especially liked the way that they categorized the 3 phases of Digital Transformation:

I love it when I get feedback from a blog that I’ve written. I appreciate the different perspectives and insights that others bring to a topic of interest.
The section of the blog that fueled the most comments stem from a scene in the movie I, Robot where Detective Spooner (played by Will Smith) is explaining to Doctor Calvin (who is responsible for giving robots human-like behaviors) why he distrusts and hates robots. He is describing an incident…

A strong declaration from a historically antagonist foe should put chills in the hearts of Americans preparing themselves for the world ahead: Russian President Vladimir Putin says the nation that leads in AI will be the ruler of the world … The ruler of the world!
From the article (with some modification to avoid political landmines), we get the following:
“The development of artificial intelligence has increasingly become a national security…

Since releasing the University of San Francisco research paper on “How to Determine the Economic Value of Your Data” (EvD), I have had numerous conversations with senior executives about the business and technology ramifications of EvD. Now with the release of Doug Laney’s “Infonomics” book that builds upon Doug’s EvD work at Gartner, I expect these conversations to intensify. In fact, I just traveled to Switzerland to discuss the potential business and technology…

So data warehousing may not be cool anymore, you say? It’s yesterday’s technology (or 1990’s technology if you’re as old as me) that served yesterday’s business needs. And while it’s true that recent big data and data science technologies, architectures and methodologies seems…
Equestrian sports is one of the oldest forms of sports entertainment. Its history can be dated back to the ancient Greek civilization. Since then, the trots have transcended the periodical barriers from time to time, walking stride to stride with the age-specific customs, and entertaining the crowds in the process. And,…Continue
DML stands for “Dynamical Machine Learning” (more in the book, “SYSTEMS Analytics for IoT Data Science”, 2017). This match is not surprising once you realize that DML & IoT are both based on the venerable Systems Theory. Let us dig deeper . . .
Consider IoT for industrial applications. A machine is instrumented with sensors, data are collected in real-time (or at intervals), communicated to the cloud where IoT Data Science…Continue

All of us are accustomed to the smart wearables, such as the ones we wear on a jogging track. We also have seen the concept of smart homes turn into a reality. We have seen a farmer sort and track his flock of sheep with the help of a mountable RFID device.
Every physical element around us (including ourselves) have become a part…Continue

Internet of Things (IoT) has generated a ton of excitement and furious activity. However, I sense some discomfort and even dread in the IoT ecosystem about the future – typical when a field is not growing at a hockey-stick pace . . .
“History may not repeat itself but it rhymes”, Mark Twain may have said. What history does IoT rhyme with?
I have often used this diagram to crisply define IoT.…Continue

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing our world. This may seem like a bold statement, but consider the impact this revolutionary technology has already had on communications, education, manufacturing, science, business, and many other fields of life. Clearly, the IoT is moving really fast from concept to reality and transforming how industries…Continue

Summary: If you want to capitalize on all the amazing advancements in data science take a look at these two hot growth areas for IoT. It's likely that these will be where a lot of venture capital is invested over the next year or two.
A lot of well deserved attention is being directed at speech, image, and text processing. The tools in this area are the CNNs and RNNs we've reviewed in recent articles. We'll continue to exploit and refine these capabilities probably…Continue
What exactly is “IoT”? Internet of Things, yes; but what does that mean?
Internet of Things is a structural definition; it says there are “Things” such as sensors and devices (on machines or people) connected together in a Network. So what? What does a Network of Sensors & Devices allow us to DO? What is the functional description of IoT?
Being able to connect things together is “table stakes” at the intelligence augmentation game. What…Continue

This article is about how to use a standards-based approach to deploy analytics on the edge of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) networks.
IIoT is here today. Wherever you look in aerospace, defense, energy production and/or transport, healthcare, manufacturing, mining, materials or smart cities the proliferation of…Continue

Everyone’s talking of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the impact it’s started to make even on day to day lives. Yet, more than anything, it’s also becoming increasingly clear that analysis of the IoT data will be the differentiator between those who simply collect data and those who “use” it to drive their businesses.…Continue

Summary: Sensors that know how you feel? Sensors that want to change the way you feel? When did that happen and better yet how?
We’re getting used to sensors finding out what we’re doing. Apparently they are now sufficiently sophisticated that they can even tell if I’m sitting up straight (yes Mom – BTW using a camera is almost…Continue
