Why Self-Organization Demands a New Reality Guest post by Intellyx Principal Analyst Charles Araujo "This all sounds great. But it's just not realistic." This is what a group of five senior IT executives told me during a workshop I held not long ago. We were working through an exercise on the organizational characteristics necessary to successfully execute a digital transformation, and the group was doing their ‘readout.' The executives loved everything we discussed and agreed that if such an environment existed, it would make transformation much easier. They just didn't believe it was realistic. Our job as analysts is not only to observe the world as it exists, but also to paint an aspirational picture of how it might be. As a result, we spend a lot of time and commit a lot of digital ink to discussing emerging technologies and approaches, and their potential impact ... (more)

Three #DigitalTransformation Truths | @CloudExpo #ArtificialIntelligence #DX

Three Digital Transformation Truths and One Great Myth By Charles Araujo It's conference season and, as you might expect, Jason and I have been on the road covering a bunch of them. It's always great to see what the disruptive players in the market are doing - and this year did not disappoint. But there is one thing that repeatedly happens that just gets under my skin: transformation-washing.

Will Low-Code Kill #DevOps? | @DevOpsSummit #LowCode #NoCode DigitalTransformation

Two apparently distinct movements are in the process of disrupting the world of enterprise application development: DevOps and Low-Code. DevOps is a cultural and organizational shift that empowers enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker - in particular, hand-coded software. Low-Code platforms, in contrast, provide a technology platform and visual tooling that empower enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker - with little or no hand-coding required. Two disruptive approaches with remarkably similar value propositions. Except that one empha... (more)

Concentric: Using AI to Transform Forecasting and Strategic Planning

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief For most enterprise organizations forecasting is one of those critical activities that takes a lot of effort and almost always falls short of the hoped-for results. They know, however, that if they can get their forecasts right, the positive impact on competitive advantage and top-line and bottom-line results is exponential. As a result, they have continued investing money and resources in this laborious, slow and imperfect process. But what if there was a way to transform not only the way that forecasting takes place, but to make the results more acc... (more)

Time to Pop the Bubble: Retrospective and Predictions for 2018 | @CloudExpo #AI #DX #Bitcoin

Time to Pop the Bubble: Intellyx Retrospective and Predictions for 2018 Following a tradition dating back to 2002 at ZapThink and continuing at Intellyx since 2014, it's time for Intellyx's annual predictions for the coming year. If you're a long-time fan, you know we have a twist to the typical annual prediction post: we actually critique our predictions from the previous year. To make things even more interesting, Charlie and I switch off, judging the other's predictions. And now that he's been with Intellyx for more than a year, this Cortex represents my first opportunity to se... (more)
