An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief You know the Internet of Things (IoT) pitch: put sensors on everything, collect the data, and transform the way your business works. It sounds simple, but actually doing it isn’t. The biggest culprit is the ability to collect that data from assets that are either moving or in far-flung locations. The traditional solution to this problem has been cellular technology, but it often proves too costly and clunky for many applications — particularly in low-tech industries. IoT connectivity provider, Senet, did not start out to be in the business of providing connectivity. It began as a company automating the distribution of fuel to homes via smart sensors that allowed fuel distributors to monitor and manage fuel levels in customer tanks more efficiently. In the process, however, they realized that they had built a national IoT network — one ... (more)

CloudJumper: A Workspace-as-a-Service Solution

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief CloudJumper believes that traditional desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) solutions don’t go far enough. These desktop virtualization services, according to the company, are like an open shell that require organizations to do too much work to realize value from them. This gap is what the company aims to close with its workspace-as-a-service (WaaS) solution. Unlike the blank slate that DaaS solutions offer, the company’s offers organizations a virtualized desktop environment with things like file storage, antivirus, and backups included out-of-the-box.

The Digital Transformer – Agile is the Center of Excellence

By Charles Betz This column started off with a bang. Last time, I chose the title “Is Agile killing EA?” and while there wasn’t a lot of discussion here, a gentleman named Jason Bloomberg posted a link to it on a LinkedIn discussion group that generated a lot of discussion. (Note, I said last time I was going to write on “EA as waste reducer.” I need to stop making commitments like that, as I write best when I just go with whatever is at the front of mind.) I’m doubling down in this column. While I believe that the *practice* of enterprise architecture will survive (for reasons ... (more)

AllSight: Leveraging Machine Learning and Big Data for Customer Intelligence Management

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief CRM tools and the data they collect are primarily intended for sales and marketing personnel. For modern digital initiatives, however, the entire organization participates in a 360-degree customer view, from pre-sales to finance to customer service to warranty support and beyond. As a result, such end-to-end digital efforts require insight into diverse data sets with different levels of structure, from traditional CRM data to social media feeds to transactional data, thus presenting big data challenges that traditional customer information systems are...

Redwood Software: The Next Generation of Robotic Business Process Automation

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief While still quite nascent, the Robotic Process Automation (RPA) movement is already beginning to run into limitations. RPA utilizes software “robots” to simulate user activity and automate mundane business process tasks. Its early promise was evident, but like many other script-based approaches, RPA becomes increasingly fragile and requires significant maintenance as organizations attempt to scale its adoption. Redwood Software takes a different approach. Rather than simulating user interaction, they automate entire back-office business processes dire... (more)
