How Edge Computing Will Deliver on the Promise of 5G
"That’s because it’s not meant for us. Like most technological advancements, industry will come first. The promise of 5G is in swarms of drones and fleets of autonomous vehicles. It’s in lightweight industrial wearables that process crucial information rapidly. It’s in robots. And, yes, it’s in the augmented reality game we’ve all been waiting for, “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.”

This promise of 5G will be most likely delivered on the edge, taking it from conference marketing to real-world feasibility. In fact, 4G can already deliver a 5G-like experience with edge computing."

When Security Researchers Pose as Cybercrooks, Who Can Tell the Difference?
"Last week, I was on a train from New York to Washington, D.C. when I received a phone call from Vinny Troia, a security researcher who runs a startup in Missouri called NightLion Security. Troia had discovered that All American Entertainment, a speaker bureau which represents a number of celebrities who also can be hired to do public speaking, had exposed thousands of speaking contracts via an unsecured Amazon cloud instance."

The Four Critical Practices of Effective Software Development
"Small stories are great for several reasons. First, if the story calls for no more than about a day and a half of work, then if a developer miscalculates the time estimate for the job by 25 percent, that is still less than a day of additional work. This means that it’s easily possible on a weekly basis to understand whether a project is on schedule or not. If stories are estimated to take weeks, then it’s incredibly difficult to know you’re behind until after the deadline has passed."

A CFO Success Story: Jim Burns, CFO of Accela
" I think the combination of getting the mentors through my career that not only helped and coached me, but took chances on me to do jobs that I had never done before. Because I had kind of shown a track record before. I always believe your job isn’t just to run it, your job is to make it substantially better when you left the role versus when you started it"

Robotic Process Automation has now penetrated a third of enterprises - by @pfersht
"The overwhelming conclusion is that a large chunk of enterprises are actively implementing it, and 10% even claim to have full scale RPA platforms up and running (let’s not dwell too much on the finer points of defining RPA here – the bigger picture here is the obsessive widespread focus, testing and deployment of automation tools)."

A CFO Success Story: Vinay Mehra, CFO of POLITICO - by @dergelcfo
"Sometimes, as a CFO, you tend to look at things are pretty black and white. Things are just numbers. But when you get involved with a non-profit, the thing that I’ve come to appreciate is – sometimes, when you are making an investment, you don’t have a true ROI, from a financial perspective. But you will have ROI from a human impact."

Confusion-as-a-Service: The massive disconnect between vision and reality - by @pfersht
"I have never known a time in the world of business when there is no much hype, confusion and unsettlement. Sadly, we are now living in a world where snippets of soundbites are so intensely shared across the variety media we use (I nearly said “omnichannel”) that our industry is completely dominated by hype, as opposed to reality."

Hello As-a-Service Economy, goodbye Outsourcing, Part 2 - by @pfersht
"What is truly worrysome here, is the speed of change in today’s global environment and what could happen to many of the organization simply paying lip-service, when it comes to hauling their antiquated back offices out of the dark ages. And, heaven-forbid, we are struck by a renewed global downturn, with so many of our enterprises failing to adapt to the modern business environment."

A CFO Success Story: Aidan Cullen, CFO of CliQr - by @dergelCFO
"I’ve always been a long term planner and thinker. I started my career in public accounting getting the fundamentals. I then went into internal audit consciously thinking about where I need to go for my success. That gave me an understanding of what’s underneath the hood of a company. From there I started to specialize in the functional roles and business partnerships, so I went to engineering and managed an engineering group worth about 120 million dollars."

Hello As-a-Service Economy, goodbye Outsourcing, Part I - by @pfersht
"But outsourcing hasn’t failed. Only 13% of service buyers in our new Ideals of As-a-Service study believe there is no more value to be found in the current outsourcing model. Outsourcing is the starting point towards driving out bloated labor costs, centralizing the delivery staff within a service provider, and creating some basic common standards across processes. However, it’s not the end-solution for ambitious firms, it’s merely the start of the journey towards this future vision of “As-a-Service”.

Forget the sharing economy, we’re in the uncaring economy - by @pfersht
"However, iet’s be honest here – who really cares about these taxi drivers being forced to improve their services, clean their cabs, clean themselves, start using credit card machines and even (on occasion) help you with your bags? The fact is, unless you are a legacy taxi driver, or related to one, you’re most likely delighted they are being forced to get competitive and improve their services."

Why Design Thinking can save the outsourcing industry - by @pfersht
"We’re trying to forge a new identity for ourselves and re-imagine what our careers, our services and our platforms could be like if we only figured out how we can define, prioritize and realize business outcomes that are valuable, as opposed to merely keeping the same old factory ticking over at the lowest possible cost."

The biggest threat to outsourcing’s future: Unfocused and unambitious Millennials - by @pfersht
"I recently attended a graduation ceremony and was amazed at the number of students engrossed in their phones, occasionally looking up to applaud a graduate.

What’s happening here? Have we created a whole generation of socially-retarded morons preferring to network on Instagram and Snapchat than engage in physical dialog anymore?"

A CFO Success Story: Ken Goldman, CFO of Everbridge - by @samueldergel
"If you think about, going back 20 – 30 years ago. CFOs were thought about as the Chief Accountant, Green Eye Shade, Risk Manager. They were someone to protect the company. While protection is part of my mandate, I would say that it really starts with enablement. My job is to enable the company to achieve success and greatness. I spend all of my time thinking about “How to do I do that?” Yes, protection is important, limiting the downside. But nobody ever built a company by just limiting downside. It’s about investing in upside."

This is where we need to upskill – in process redesign, in managing and enabling analytics tools, in driving advancements in automation and cognitive platforms more effectively."

Cost is the New Black: The Overbearing Paradoxical C-Suite Imperative for 2015 - by @pfersht
"Enterprise leaders can’t keep dipping into their operations functions to find more staff to shift into cheaper locations, or simply remove them – they are having to explore the emergence of As-a-Service solutionsas that next lever to pull. The shift from labor to digital is happening, and this insatiable thirst to operate businesses as cost-effectively and flexibly as possible is the overwhelming driver behind this change."

Skill not Scale: The Massive Opportunity Awaiting the Services Industry - by @pfersht
"Where Deepak hits the nail on the head, is how IT services executives are promoting themselves out of relevance in the India-heritage firms (which is not too dissimilar from practices we observe in many Western-heritage services firms too). In plain terms, we’ve got lazy and arrogant, we’ve developed a sense of entitlement, where all we need to do is print money from the profits of maintaining legacy enterprise practices."
