Top Stories by Jason Bloomberg

Guest post by Intellyx Principal Analyst Charles Araujo I was at a conference recently when I saw it. I sighed and shook my head. A development manager from a large enterprise organization was explaining how they had created a DevOps maturity model based on CMMI. They went on to describe their current state of maturity and their plans to get to ‘full maturity' in the next three years. He continued by explaining how they had presented this plan to executive management and subsequently received approval for a new ‘DevOps team.' Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again.

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. At issue: whether the point of AI is to simulate human behavior so seamlessly that it can fool people into thinking they are actually interacting with a human being, rather than a piece of software. Such deception was never the point of Turing's exercise, however. Rather, he realized that there was no way to define true intelligence, and thus no way to test for it. So he came up with the game as... (more)

The Profound, Surprising Future of the Internet of Things | @ExpoDX #IoT #IIoT #SmartCities

Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE As the old Danish proverb says, it is difficult to make predictions, especially about the future. Add the exponential pattern of change familiar from Moore’s Law to the mix, multiply over a combination of dynamic trends, and such augury is fraught with peril. Take, for example, the Internet of Things (IoT). Simply looking at the devices (sensors and actuators) themselves, we may extrapolate a number of such trends, many of which follow exponential curves. Such devices are rapidly getting smaller. They’re consuming less and less po... (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 ...

Seven Criteria for Evaluating a Blockchain Business | @ExpoDX #FinTech #Blockchain #DigitalTransformation

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 o...
