The Costly, Damaging, and Futile Myth of Business & IT Alignment Replacing nonsensical ‘business and IT alignment’ with a newer, better environment
"Now is the ideal time to partition business and IT in such a fashion. The emerging viability of what has been somewhat arbitrarily grouped into ‘digital transformation’ assets (Big Data, Machine Learning, Internet-of-Things and Analytics) can only be successfully adopted by an organization with an efficient and credible foundation of integrated business applications. With business stakeholders firmly at the wheel, such efficiency and credibility are more easily achieved than through an alignment effort that has been a dismal failure since the days of manual typewriters, hi-fis, black & white television, and rotary telephones."

Enterprise Artificial Intelligence Is about the Big Picture and the Little Things
"The first gathering of London’s new AI and Machine Learning in Enterprise Applications Meetup wasn’t too fussed with this war of tech giants. Microsoft’s Global Strategist Nigel Willson came to reveal the signs of oncoming AI, and then KPMG’s Chief Technology Officer Priti Padhy was all about how to apply it to the enterprise space. Today we’re going to cover what they see as currently available to us and how enterprises are going to take advantage of it. It’s a lot more practical and a lot less sci-fi than you think."

Security in the Cloud Native Era
"The container abstraction embodies three fundamental characteristics that are important to security: minimalistic (e.g., single process), declarative, and immutable. These characteristics combined make it possible to secure applications in ways that in the past were difficult or manual."

Intelligent Applications - by @mfauscette
"Applying AI to existing types of applications has a great deal to offer. An AI based “agent” could manage tasks like scheduling meetings for example. I’ve participated in a beta of an agent like this from a company called that very effectively functions as a personal assistant to help manage your schedule. Managing calendars, meetings, email (prioritizing and maybe even providing simple responses to some types of email), many simple tasks could be managed with an AI agent."

Slack is 2016’s hottest startup, but can it make the leap to big enterprise?
"A similar case could be made for Box, another company Hamid has invested in: The cloud-storage company has to convert free customers to paid to be successful. “It’s similar,” Hamid said. “But at Slack, it’s faster and at a higher conversion rate than anything seen before.” A third of free users convert to paid, he said, a sign that the tool fills a need that existed well before it came along."

A Year After IPO, Aaron Levie’s Box Is Showing Signs of Growing Up
"What’s missing? SAP, he says, referring to the German business software giant best known for its software used by large companies to run their operation soup-to-nuts, a market segment known as Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP. “If there’s one thing that’s missing here, it’s an ERP company. I don’t have a way to get ERP documents into Box.” The same is true of Oracle, another ERP player. “We want to work with everybody.”

News Analysis: In Search Of Growth Amidst Digital Disruption - by @rwang0
"Organizations focused on jump starting growth must begin their transformation to a digital business.

The Exploding Infrastructure Automation Stack and Its Ecosystem
"Microservices is a software architectural model in which you componentize your application and run each component as its own container across one or many physical or virtual machines. These containers can be built by developers, then shipped into production via continuous delivery. Containers should be fungible. You should be able to run one or many identical containers, depending on how much you need to scale your application."

The cloud is becoming exactly what it sought to replace - by @davidlinthicum
"I remember the pitch: Cloud computing (called on-demand at the time) was the alternative to traditional enterprise software. You purchased cloud services using an on-demand or subscription model, you paid for only what you used, and you owned no hardware or software. What could be better? Ten years later, cloud providers are becoming "enterprise-y" in their behavior -- more like the very traditional enterprise providers they were supposed to differ from."

Enterprise Odd Couple: Plex Systems Partners with Workday - by @erp_cindyjutras
"At first glance these two might seem like the proverbial odd couple. As another ERP vendor, Workday would appear to be a competitor. But it is not, because Workday is not a solution that is focused on the needs of manufacturers. And companies that “make things” are the only targets for Plex Systems. So if Workday isn’t for manufacturers, why would any Plex customer be interested in connecting to it? Because typically corporate headquarters doesn’t make anything, but might have sophisticated accounting requirements to support global operations. This partnership is all about delivering a pre-packaged 2-tier ERP."

When it comes to mobile apps, IT is ‘slow, poor and weak’ - by @marypcbuk
"When 80 percent of employees say mobile technology is critical for getting their job done, but the same number say they haven’t asked their IT department for the apps they need because they don't think they'd get what they need, that’s a sure sign of trouble."

Plex Systems Takes a Page From Manufacturer’s Play Book - by @erp_cindyjutras
"Continuous improvement has long been the mantra for many manufacturers. Kaizen and other formal programs like Lean, Six Sigma, and Total Quality Management (TQM) have dominated the manufacturing scene for years. But what about the world of enterprise software for manufacturing? Not so much."
