Visibility: If Only I Could See
"Improved visibility allows teams to see information and take action. When done well, a visibility project improves outcomes and collaboration. The caution is that the word “visibility” is over used, and there are many solution options. The market is over-hyped and often companies are not clear in their selection criteria."

Welcome 2019
"Trend 5. Digital Manufacturing Success. In the next two years, companies will make the most progress in the area of digital manufacturing. The combination of technologies for track and trace (an example is ThinkIQ), 3D printing, robotics, and wearables improves flexibility in operations. Company digital initiatives will have the most success in production operations."

Our Walk In The Fog
"1) Demand Sensing. Despite a 2-3X increase in demand latency, there is still a strong belief that the order represents market demand. It does not. Companies talk about customer-centric supply chains, but most leaders are more comfortable in the world of supply than demand. While there is much hype on DDMRP and the use of orders as a proxy for demand, companies need to remember that orders carry latency: they are out-of-step with market purchase behavior. The further back in the supply chain that companies find themselves, the greater the order latency, the less that the order reflects market behaviors."

My Take: The Role of Anaplan in Defining the Art of the Possible in Supply Chain Planning
"The pace of technology change is faster than business user adoption. The first step is education. The second is action. In my travels, I see companies stuck in a quagmire of arguments focused on the standardization on yesterday’s technologies versus the adoption of new approaches. In embracing the art of the possible, companies struggle. Many companies make the mistake that yesterday’s technologists–JDA, Logility, Oracle, SAP– are good business development partners to define the “art of the possible.” (On a side note, during my fifteen years as an analyst, I have never seen co-development with large established technologists be successful.) The internal dissonance within the manufacturing organization is deadly."

Building the Network of Networks
"Together, the group is attempting to understand the future of these technologies and the potential to redefine multi-tier processes. An example is the European pilot outlined in Figure 5. Since Blockchain technologies are currently limited in scalability, and the ability to connect many parties to many parties, the group is using Blockchain to connect existing supply chain operating networks. (Most Blockchain deployments are one-company to one-company, or one-company to many-companies. The technology is not scalable to support a many-to-many architecture.)"

News Analysis - Google expands its global infrastructure with new regions and subsea cables - keeps investing in the Google Network as a differentiator
"The monopoly race is on between all key cloud IaaS players, the most prominent ones being AWS, Microsoft, Google, IBM and Oracle. There are always monthly press releases about new data centers being announced, opening etc. But seldom there is a ‘bulk’ announcement like the one that Google announced yesterday, in a blog by Treynor Sloss, that can be found here."

Building the Network of Networks: Some Insights - by @lcecere
"2) Detours/Potholes and Spiraled Learning. It is easy for groups to get caught up in discussions of technology for the sake of technology. Chasing pretty objects is alluring. The group’s foray into blockchain discovery was a detour with fruitful insights. While blockchain as a technology is very promising, the definition of network governance is a strong precursor–the number of nodes, what gets written into the blockchain infrastructure, and security/authentication. This world is in flux, and we are not ready to have this discussion."

Salesforce’s Einstein Mixes Automated AI with Business-Specific Data Models
"And if you only have ten leads a day, just call them all; “AI is not a ‘one glove fits all’ tool and not every problem needs AI,” Gordon said.

To help customers trust these automated machine learning systems, Salesforce shows why a particular lead has been scored high or low. “We explain why we believe a lead will work; we explain which models are influencing the score and what in the data is signaling that the opportunity will convert,” Gordon said."

10 Use Cases in Supply Chain for Hyperledger - by @lcecere
"The Hyperledger project aims to bring together a number of independent efforts to develop open protocols and standards, by providing a modular framework that supports different components for different uses. This would include a variety of blockchain technology variants with their own consensus and storage models, and services for identity, access control, and contracts. In the Networks of Network testing in the spring of 2017, we will be using the IBM version of blockchain to test the use of hyperledger to improve network on boarding."

Five Trends That Excite Me! - by @lcecere #scm
"My recommendation is for companies to stabilize their ERP spending and divert the funds into cognitive learning and artificial intelligence pilots. I think these solutions will fill in the current gaps in master data management and will be the basis of the next generation of supply chain planning. The future is autonomous planning. Today there are three primary providers: Enterra Solutions, IBM, and RuleX, but look for more competitors in this space in the near future."

Lecko on collaboration and Microsoft on Teams at SMILE - by @dt
Consider me skeptical about the Yammer part... "Later in the day Rich Ellis of Microsoft talked with Marc about the new Teams product and how it fits in to their strategy. Rich was at Yammer before they were acquired, and was very clear in explaining that “Yammer is going nowhere!”. There were a few chuckles around the room, but he went on to explain Yammer is a key part of their strategy and onward development, providing broad collaboration across work groups. He commented that Satya (Nadella, the Microsoft CEO) jumps in to Yammer to connect and join in the conversations happening across the company."

Google’s DeepMind AI Now Capable of ‘Deep Neural Reasoning’
"But DeepMind, Google’s artificial intelligence research lab, has now gone yet another step further. Having created the AlphaGo software that was able to master the complex board game known as Go, DeepMind has now made what they are calling a “memory-augmented neural network” that uses a kind of external “working memory” that helps it to learn how to complete complex tasks on its own, using human-inspired memory and reasoning, instead of being programmed to do so."

Microsoft Teams and Slack point to the future of collaboration - by @dt
"Slack’s success highlights a key problem for our existing collaboration software options. They are more difficult to use than they should be. On top of that, the digital workplace is a mess. Alongside whatever we use for team collaboration, we access a whole host of disparate corporate systems with differing interfaces to get the job done. Slack has the ease of use and frictionless set up of the consumer apps we all used to on our smartphones and tablets."

Sparking a New Conversation: Let’s Build a Network of Networks - by @lcecere
"Not all data needs to fly first class. While many companies speak to us about the need for real-time data, we believe that data needs to move at the “right timing.” Some data needs to move quickly and with high velocity using streaming data architectures, while other data sources can move in batch processes."

Deep Learning Demystified
"It does sound expensive and complicated, but the value of understanding the value of deep learning is invaluable. Deep learning is what makes big data more than a buzzword. Machine learning and its deeper cousin are what will give you competitive insights into your customers and then allow you to turn that into drilled-down campaigns. Deep learning has a computer learning patterns and recognizing habits that take millions in market research at which to make educated guesses."

"I’ve traveled nearly 70,000 miles all over the world since the beginning of the year, talking with digital practitioners in the trenches. Most often these are passionate but often frustrated change agents, IT managers grappling with tech evolution, and corporate leaders on both the technology and business side looking towards their futures and feeling uncertain."

Mossberg: An Encryption ‘Backdoor’ Is a Bad Idea
"I understand their exasperation, but not their proposed solution: Forcing American companies, notably Apple and Google, to build “backdoors” into their encrypted smartphones that would allow the government access. This would be a huge change, because both companies have introduced whole-device encryption that even they can’t decrypt. It would also be a huge mistake."

Supply Chain: The True Game of Risk - by @lcecere
"The global supply chain is a continual game of risk. Business continuity is at stake. The global supply chain has more risk than the regional supply chain of old. It requires an active and robust risk management program. The most successful risk management programs are multi-prong programs with an equal focus on prevention and recovery."

Revisiting the 2014 Predictions - by @sogrady
O' Grady once again grades himself... "Before we get to the review of 2014’s forecast, one important note regarding the caveat mentioned above. Prior to 2013, the predictions in this space focused on relatively straightforward expectations with well understood variables. After some ferocious taunting constructive feedback from Bryan Cantrill, however, emphasis shifted towards trying to better anticipate the totally unexpected than the reverse."
