How WhatsApp Destroyed A Village
"The Indian government, however, had been hoping for more: It had asked for WhatsApp to develop tools to help trace the origin of messages, ostensibly to help authorities hunt down the creators of the fake videos.

Carl Woog, a spokesperson for WhatsApp, provided the following statement to BuzzFeed News: “We believe that building ‘traceability’ into WhatsApp would undermine end-to-end encryption and the private nature of WhatsApp creating the potential for serious misuse. As we go forward, WhatsApp remains committed to working with others in society on the challenge of misinformation though we will not weaken the privacy protections we provide.”

Monday’s Musings: Seven Common Failures Plague Board Room Strategy In Digital Transformation
"Laggard market perception cascades failure and customer disillusionment. Declining brands and organizations in laggard industries stripped of brand equity enter an era of negative market perception. Instead of redefining the mission and purpose with new business models, orgs often take a short cut of branding without substance. Seen as devoid of innovation with a commoditized non-differentiated offering, every stakeholder from employee, customer, partner, supplier, and investor lowers expectations of success. The result – leaders who focus on short term gain, declining employee morale, lack of interest by investors, and lower quality from suppliers. Partners lose interest in creating co-innovation and co-creation ecosystems with laggards. Customers no longer find an affinity for a brand that has sold its soul and will not pay for premium pricing when they no longer see value."

What’s Missing From Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant For CPQ
"Magic quadrants and market analysis grids are designed to guide enterprise buyers to the best possible technologies for their needs. The recently published Gartner Magic Quadrant for Configure, Price, and Quote (CPQ) Application Suites, 2018 (client access reqd.) doesn’t address the most challenging problem enterprises face making CPQ strategies work, which is enterprise-wide systems integration. Members of the CPQ vendor landscape are growing complacent and need to intensify innovation efforts too."

SAP Indirect Access: What the Diageo Case Means to SAP Customers
"The bottom line… SAP has gone all in on the Diageo case, and has been all in on this concept for years because SAP’s future revenue and share of the cloud market is on the line. SAP has clearly developed and is executing on its strategy to incent adoption of SAP cloud solutions. SAP has also positioned itself to capture incremental revenue even if a customer elects to choose an alternative best-of-breed solution."

MIT’s Food Computers Set the Stage for Open Source Agriculture
"There are some indications of this shift: the appearance of urban rooftop farms, an explosion of interest in automated hydroponic systems. The problem with all these systems is that their platforms are proprietary, and the lack of a common platform between them means these won’t necessarily scale up."
"Most  of  us  probably  don’t  think  too  much  about  the  foodstuffs  we  buy  in  supermarket.  But  behind  scenes  today’s  food  production  system  relies  on  a  centralized  industrial-scale  supply  chain  that’s  still  dependent  upon  soil-based  agriculture  for  majority  our  crops.Most  crops.culture  science  technology  top  stories  big  data  computer  computing  machine  learning  massachusetts  institute  open  source

MIT’s New AI Data Extraction System Teaches Itself by Surfing the Web
"The new system could be a boon to accelerating research tasks that may have required more tedious, manual effort from humans previously. Not only would a system like this save time, it could also save lives: the researchers foresee that such a system could be used by healthcare providers, as a tool for aggregating patient histories under a more unified structure, which would improve the quality of care that a patient receives."

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"

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."

"Cisco announced today it was buying Jasper Technologies, a company that sells an Internet of Things cloud platform, for $1.4 billion. With Jasper, Cisco gets a company that understands the burgeoning Internet of Things market.

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."

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."

Getting Started as a Blogger: A Contract with Your Readers - by @daedtech
"Also, caveat emptor. What I’m telling you here essentially amounts to, “here’s what I’ve learned through some reading and collaborating and a whole lot of trial and error.” I have a pretty decent reader base and sometimes I even get paid to write (and, recently, to help others get better at writing), but I am not Lifehacker or some kind of blogging empire. I’m a guy that’s been treating the world to two or three rants per week for a number of years."
