Why Digital Disruption is Overrated
"There are plenty of risks when embarking on the journey from your current state of legacy systems to the future state of digital disruption. Yet academics, industry analysts, and other ivory tower types without much relevant hands-on implementation experience fail to mention this important fact.

Note: this is most likely due to the fact that industry analysts are largely supported by the ERP software vendors that have the most to gain from coercing their customers into “digital disruption.” Most buyers of new enterprise technologies with grand visions of technology improvements aren’t aware of the 50% operational disruption rate."

Self-Serve ERP Software Please
"ERP software has evolved to the point where it can allow a self-serve methodology to work efficiently and potentially save companies money. Algorithms help point clients in the right direction towards ready-to-use pathways. When done right, this is a win-win. The client gets to interact/transact in their preferred way, and the company can redeploy its human assets."

What Matters Most In Business Intelligence, 2019
"Improving revenues using BI is now the most popular objective in 2019, despite BI initially being positioned as a solution for compliance and risk management. Executive Management, Marketing/Sales, and Operations are driving the focus on improving revenues this year. Nearly 50% of enterprises now expect BI to deliver better decision making, making the areas of reporting, and dashboards must-have features. Interestingly, enterprises aren’t looking to BI as much for improving operational efficiencies and cost reductions or competitive advantages."

Seven Things You Need To Know About IIoT In Manufacturing
"IIoT platforms are beginning to replace MES and related applications, including production maintenance, quality, and inventory management, which are a mix of Information Technology (IT) and Operations Technology (OT) technologies. IoT Analytics is seeing IIoT platforms begin to replace existing industrial software systems that had been created to bridge the IT and OT gaps in manufacturing environments. Their research teams are finding that IIoT Platforms are an adjacent technology to these typical industrial software solutions but are now starting to replace some of them in smart connected factory settings. The following graphic explains how IoT Analytics sees the IIoT influence across the broader industrial landscape."

Industry 4.0’s Potential Needs To Be Proven On The Shop Floor
"In the many conversations I’ve had with mid-tier manufacturers located in North America this year, I’ve learned the following:

Their top investment priorities are upgrading existing machinery, replacing fully depreciated machines with next-generation smart, connected production equipment, and adopting real-time monitoring including Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES).
Manufacturers growing 10% or more this year over 2018 excel at integrating technologies that improve scheduling to enable more short-notice production runs, reduce order cycle times, and improve supplier quality."

Progress Report - Workday Innovation Summit 2019 - Workday doubles down on AI and Skills
"On the concern side, Workday’s move to the public cloud is … slow. When asked, Bhusri foresees probably two more hardware refresh cycles in the Workday data centers… translated, that means he sees full public cloud 4-6 years out. Operationally that maybe fine, but from the AI / ML perspective obstructional to implement any deep learning on customer data. Workday is to a certain point lucky, as HR and Finance are somewhat moving slower than e.g. Commerce, IoT etc. I also missed (at least a demo refresh / update) on voice as the new UX, as this is most transformation for the sporadic nature of HCM interactions.
