How To Protect Healthcare Records In A Zero Trust World
"Using access credentials stolen from co-workers or stolen laptops, unethical healthcare insiders are among the most prolific at stealing and selling patient data of any insider threat across any industry. Accenture’s study, “Losing the Cyber Culture War in Healthcare: Accenture 2018 Healthcare Workforce Survey on Cybersecurity,” found that the most common ways healthcare employees financially gain from stealing medical records is to commit tax return and credit card fraud."

CPQ Needs To Scale And Support Smarter, More Connected Products
"Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platforms has the potential of providing a single, unified data model across an entire manufacturing operation, giving manufacturers a single unified view of product configurations across their lifecycles. Producing smart, connected products at scale also requires a system capable of presenting a unified view of configurations in the linguistics each department can understand. Engineering, production, marketing, sales, and service all need a unique view of product configurations to keep producing new products. Leaders in this field include Configit and their Configuration Lifecycle Management approach to CPQ and product configuration."

Which CRM Applications Matter Most In 2018
"Marketing analytics continues to be hot for marketing leaders, who now see it as a key business requirement and a source of competitive differentiation. In my opinion and based on discussions with CMOs, interest in marketing analytics is soaring as they are all looking to quantify their team’s contribution to lead generation, pipeline growth, and revenue. I see analytics- and data-driven clarity as the new normal. I believe that knowing how to quantify marketing contributions and performance requires CMOs and their teams to stay on top of the latest marketing, mobile marketing, and predictive customer analytics apps and technologies constantly. The metrics marketers choose today define who they will be tomorrow and in the future."

How To Protect Healthcare IoT Devices In A Zero Trust World
"Healthcare and medical device manufacturers need to start taking action now to secure these devices during the research and development, design and engineering phases of their next generation of IoT products. Specifying and validating that every IoT access point is compatible and can scale to support Zero Trust Security (ZTS) is essential if the network of devices being designed and sold will be secure. ZTS is proving to be very effective at thwarting potential breach attempts across every threat surface an organization has. Its four core pillars include verifying the identity of every user, validating every device, limiting access and privilege, and utilizing machine learning to analyze user behavior and gain greater insights from analytics."

"With apologies to its front and center positioning of ethics in discussions of its various AI initiatives, the single most important news at Google Next was the announcement of GKE On-Prem. Kubernetes has become a veritable force of nature since Google released it as open source software in mid-2014, but it remains complicated enough to stand up and run that even high end developers are happy to have help managing it. This is the market opportunity that GKE was created in response to, along with AWS’s EKS, Pivotal’s PKS, Microsoft’s AKS, Red Hat’s OpenShift and startups like Heptio. To date, however, there have been clear lines of distinction between on and off premises solutions. Specifically, off premises, managed cloud solutions were limited to their own platforms."

The downfall of Theranos, from the journalist who made it happen
"More than anyone else, Carreyrou deserves credit for pulling the wool from so many credulous eyes regarding Theranos and its founder, Elizabeth Holmes. Outlets like Fortune and Wired were writing hagiographic puff pieces about this precocious college dropout and her plan to save the world; Carreyrou was pointing out inconvenient facts, like the company's inability to accurately conduct most of the hundreds of blood tests it claimed to have revolutionized. He credits pathologist Adam Clapper—who wrote the now-defunct Pathology Blawg—for tipping him off that something wasn't entirely right."

What I learned at the conferences
"CRM doesn’t appear to be slowing down. As an industry it’s rated at about $35 billion in revenues up three-fold over where it was at the beginning of the century when I was a tenderfoot. One reason for the growth is the constant diversification led in no small part by Salesforce’s innovative culture. Big vendors like SAP have rededicated to CRM and I wish them well though I have a nagging feeling that’s an uphill path. Still many enterprise vendors seem to have entered CRM as a defensive move to secure their legacy customers. That’s not a recipe for sustained excellence. But what do I know? I’m just an analyst."

If the CRA is approved by the House and signed by President Trump, Internet service providers would have to continue following rules that prohibit blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization."

CFOs and CIOs investing $ millions in bot licenses and consultants to implement them will be expecting a return on their investment, and if operations leaders do not have a concerted plan to use the freed up man hours, you can be sure there will be intense pressure to reduce even more heads than may have been in the initial plan."

Even in machine-first scenarios like at the Goldman Sachs cash equities desk, the number of traders has dropped from 600 in 2,000 down to 2. But now 200 software engineers support the automated trading. In contrast, in a human-first scenario, Autodesk is hiring novelists to write scripts for its chatbots. He had plenty of other examples of man leading or following machines or teaming with them. But each still has a human element."

And we will also need tactical labor to keep refining the data. Amazon has its talent networks – the Kindle author, the Flex courier, the Mechanical Turk and fulfillment networks it can mine. Apple has its iTune and iOS networks to draw from.

(Hint: Driving IT category savings starts with the same strategies and techniques that you would apply to other areas from a strategic sourcing and category management perspective.)"

What’s Scary About Amazon Web Services - by @sogrady
"As it turns out, that wasn’t the new services, nor the unparalleled velocity at which they continue to be introduced. Both are impressive, to be sure, and under other circumstances would be grim news for other market participants. But if re:Invent demonstrated anything, it’s that AWS competitors should be far more concerned instead about what’s happening around the introduction of all of the new features."

Two decades of HR Tech - by @dealarchitect
"After my last book, Silicon Collar about automation, I get the sense HR is in for a huge change over the next few years. Automation via AI, robotics, drones, wearables – is changing the nature of work in every profession. We will see new job titles emerge we did not anticipate just a few years ago. More of the workforce will be on platforms, in franchises and other “extended enterprise” formats."

Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Jobs - by @tomraftery
"The fact of the matter is that technology in general, and AI in particular will contribute enormously to a hugely changing labour landscape. I mentioned at the start of this post that my role in SAP is IoT Evangelist – this is a role I fully expect to no longer exist in 5 years time, because by then everything will be connected, and so the term Internet of Things will be redundant, in the same way terms like “Internet connected phone”, or “interactive website” are redundant today."

Raising the Bar – for clouds, renewables and digital – Part 3 - by @dealarchitect
"For years now, pundits have said technology budgets are being taken over by the CMO. That is their narrow definition of digital – implement a social sentiment analysis technology or roll out a mobile consumer focused app. Much better payback has come from the product side of the house. It is not unusual to find in auto makers more software engineers who report to product engineering/R&D than do to the CIO. It is not uncommon to see in companies seriously making their products smarter that the spend with contract manufacturers like Flex and Foxconn and product design firms like IDEO and Frog exceeds the spend with IT outsourcers and strategy firms."

Book Review: The Age of Sustainability book by @denispombriant, review by @dealarchitect
"I found Denis’ book measured from that point of view. He covers wide ground when it comes to energy – the role of albedo in deflecting solar radiation, carbon sequestration, the limits to hyrdo and nuclear power growth, the risks that come with fracking, the concept of “peak oil”. He is also realistic about our fossil fuel infrastructure and sunk costs. Not going away anytime soon because they also are source of raw materials for essentials like plastics and tires."

What’s really holding back today’s CIO from digital transformation? - by @dhinchcliffe
"However, in talking with many larger enterprises over the last few years, I’ve noticed — and the available data further confirms it — that the digital art-of-the-possible is very much pulling away from average practice. There appear to be two primary causes for this: a) Lack of sufficiently strategic and innovative digital change/realization at scale and b) a firmly entrenched set of institutional barriers to doing something very new and different than what the organization did before."

In Digital Transformation, The Art-of-the-Possible and Average Practice Are Diverging - by @dhinchcliffe
"This herd mentality of digital actually has numerous causes: Proven best practices for digital are too few and far between, successful experiments are often hoarded for competitive motivations, digital innovators by definition take on often untenable risks we’d prefer to avoid, and perhaps most of all, we are still trying to get used to the rapid pace of learning that digital requires to stay abreast."

A more realistic, less alarmist Oxford study on automation and jobs - by @dealarchitect
"And yet, I wish this new study had surveyed practitioners, not just AI experts. They would have heard automation is still too expensive. That their industry regulators take a long time to approve technology in the workplace.

And I wish they had considered what I called in my book societal “circuit breakers” to rapid adoption of automation."

Elon Musk: Luddite? - by @denispombriant
"So perhaps Musk is more Lindbergh-esque than Harrisonian and as such he’s really more into improving solutions than inventing his own. So the whole idea of the brave new world of AI can seem scary to him and thus his crusade to save us. Musk’s Providence pronouncements were not the first cautionary words he’d offered on AI. The March 26 issue of Vanity Faire magazine carried a long article by Maureen Dowd, “Elon Musk’s Billion-Dollar Crusade to Stop the A.I. Apocalypse.” The article describes Musk’s effort to, “[S]ave humanity from machine-learning overlords.”"

Twitter’s stock plunges as user growth stalls
"That's not going to happen, and investors are cluing in. Twitter had 328 million average monthly active users, or MAU, in the three months ending in June, which is unchanged from the previous quarter. The company's shares were down more than 10 percent this morning on the news.

The poor showing comes despite Twitter's role in the daily news cycle being more prominent than ever, since the platform often serves as President Donald Trump's favored medium of expression."

Early on Tuesday morning, in the latest salvo of a tussle between the two tech billionaires over the dangers of advanced artificial intelligence, Musk said that Zuckerberg's "understanding of the subject is limited."

AT&T joins net neutrality protest—despite suing to block neutrality rules

But that's the point AT&T is making: the company claims to support an "open Internet" even though it opposes the current FCC rules designed to protect the open Internet."

​Artificial intelligence and privacy engineering: Why it matters NOW - by @mkrigsman
"For AI, it is just sort of the next layer of that. We’ve gone from individual machines, networks, to now we have something that is looking for patterns at an unprecedented capability, that at the end of the day, it still goes back to what is coming from what the individual has given consent to? What is being handed off by those machines? What are those data streams?"

Digital survival: The transformation imperative - by @mkrigsman
"Consumers expect authenticity from corporations and individuals alike. As consumer psychology changes, digital and marketing must enter a new era where human needs — values and connections — define success and failure. This is a call to action for marketers and advertising executives to change their perspective towards consumers.

Companies can no longer see consumers as gullible moneybags or conquests. They must see consumers as community members, as human beings, who crave trust."

When It Comes to Digital Transformation, Change Agents Matter Most - by @dhinchcliffe
"This post was inspired by an inspired Twitter discussion this morning between myself, Tim Crawford, and Jim Canto about what the attributes of a change agent are. My take is shown above in the visual, and can be summarized as:

Can identify or develop valuable new ideas. Change agents don’t necessarily need to have ideas about change, they just need to recognize good ones.
Has social capital to spread ideas. Change agents have some resources to take their ideas and convince others to join in to help realize them, especially as CIO David Chou says, to navigate the political waters.."

Tim Cook announces $1 billion investment in “advanced” US manufacturing
"Apple plans to create a $1 billion fund to invest in "advanced manufacturing" jobs in the United States. CEO Tim Cook made the announcement last night in a CNBC interview with Mad Money host Jim Cramer, and he says that Apple plans to announce its first investment later this month. Cook wants the new fund to create a "ripple effect" in the job market—he says that the manufacturing jobs created directly by the fund will also create service jobs needed to support them."
