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."

Digital Transformation’s Missing Link Is Zero Trust
"Gaps exist between the results digital transformation initiatives are delivering today, and the customer-driven value they’re capable of. According to Gartner, 75% of digital transformation projects are not aligned internally today, leading to delayed new product launches, mediocre experiences, and greater security risks than ever before."

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."

Oh Hello 5G; I Didn’t Expect You So Soon
"When 5G is fully implemented, it’s going to enable the underlying infrastructure we’ll need to build the smart cities, homes, autonomous vehicles, robotics, virtual and augmented reality systems everyone’s been designing and daydreaming about for the past decade. Think of it as one of the magic ingredients needed to bring the Internet of Things (IoT) market– with its estimated projected 21 billion devices– to life."

The Current State Of Cybersecurity Shows Now Is The Time For Zero Trust
"
41% of total breaches in 2017 targeted the healthcare industry, making it the most popular target for breach attempts.
Personally Identifiable Information (PII) combined with user credentials tops the percentage of breaches with 29% according to Wipro’s report.
88 records were lost or stolen every second in 2017 according to Wipro’s analysis.
Machine learning & AI are the second highest ranking security competencies for the future."

How Supply Chain Lost Its Mojo
"Bad Conferences on Steroids. With the pink ghetto marketing organization focused on leads and placement of speakers, there is a strong investment in “conference sponsorships.” In England, we have a plethora of event organizers that roll out many questionable events largely funded by technology companies. Business users attend free, but the primary goal is to provide a forum for technologists to advertise their products (I feel this way about EFT, IE Group, SCOPE, World Trade Group). The reason? There is no vetting of presenters."

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.)"

Why Multicloud Will Win When the Cloud Wars Go Global
Data privacy is increasingly critical, particularly as breaches become both more frequent and more devastating. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is certainly a reflection of what will become more tightly monitored if not regulated space.

But even with GDPR, there will be industry-specific regulations that mandate protections, especially around data that is of security interest. In some cases, enterprises will find that tight control over data, being mindful of national borders, provides the right balance of risk mitigation and control."

Google AI Achieves “Alien” Superhuman Mastery of Chess and Go in Mere Hours
"And it seems that Google’s subsidiary DeepMind has once again gotten one step closer to this goal with AlphaZero, their latest AI development. Their recently published pre-print research outlined how AlphaZero succeeded in handily beating one of the world’s top chess engines — after teaching itself and mastering the game in four hours and reaching a “superhuman” level of play in a mere 24 hours in not only chess but in two other different types of board games."

The Edge Is Replacing the Cloud, and Mobile Is Making It Happen
"For mobile developers, the future feels pretty close. After all, if you’ve been building mobile apps, you’ve already been building on the edge. It’s not at all strange for you to have experience building apps that are resilient and capable. You’ve been dealing with intermittent networks and learning how to enable features even when your users go offline, and how to resolve conflicts when they get a connection back again. You’ve figured out how to package high-performance features like machine learning into something that can run on a phone. You’ve lived with battery and processing and storage constraints, and know how to get the most out of them."

Could an AI Generate the First Line of a Novel?
"And of course, the other half of the fun is sharing the ridiculous results on her blog. For example, given a dataset of 37,265 fish names, the neural network tried its hardest to generate its own. And last week Shane trained it on the first lines from 224 Disney songs. But this month Shane turned her attention to one of the most human endeavors of all: writing a novel. “When you’re faced with a blank page, sometimes it’s just hard to get started,” Shane joked on her web page. “I wanted to see if I could train a computer program to help.”

Why the Cloud Wars Will Be Good for Your Business
"That said, over time, a fractured market benefits no one. Users have to manage the complexity and providers are limited in reach. So we will likely see the pendulum continue to swing as the market ultimately navigates towards an equilibrium point. Of course, when we get to that point, the discussion will shift to supplier management strategies, which will again strengthen the case for a multi-cloud future."

Introducing "The Super User (R)evolution" Unleashing the Collaborative Forces Already in Your Enterprise
"The "Initial Super Users" Era: In the late 90's and early aughts, it was recognized that companies would do better to assign internal end users to provide guidance to other end users at least for the training for the initial go-live. Sometimes this role was made more permanent, thus extending beyond go-live but such extended roles were seldom formalized or respected and usually simply petered out for lack of management support and respect."

Why Is Blockchain Not Hotter? - by @lcecere
"Most of the blockchain work today is one-to-many, not many-parties-to-many-parties. Supply Chain Operating Networks like Elemica, GT Nexus (now Infor), and SAP Ariba are many-parties-to-many-parties. The complexity of many-to-many networks, as compared to one-to-many operating networks, is different by an order of magnitude. Security and data management in many-to-many architectures, and the management within blockchain, is still experimental."

A CFO Success Story: Sajid Malhotra, CFO of Limelight Networks - by @dergelCFO
"SD: What challenges did you face becoming CFO when you were not classically trained for the role?

SM: I was at the right place at the right time. There was an abrupt departure of the CFO and I expressed interest to be the next CFO. I knew that the role would be a challenge but I felt, based on the underlying support team, there was low probability of failure and a very high probability of success. I felt I possessed the right skill set to turnaround the business for all stakeholders and wanted to take on the challenge of being a key member to turn a broken business into a successful one. Despite the position being outside of my comfort zone, I recognized, it was an opportunity I should not pass up."

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."

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."

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."

The DevOpsification of Security
"Talk to any CISO and they’ll tell you that hiring and retaining qualified security personnel is their greatest challenge. Couple that with the fact that the average large enterprise has deployed anywhere from 50 to 70 disparate security products. The result is that understaffed teams simply cannot keep up with today’s high velocity, rapidly evolving threat landscape. The only solution becomes to replace humans with machines — to automate and orchestrate systems to understand and respond to alerts themselves"

Spotting Fake Online Reviews - by @mfauscette
" If a review is completely or mostly lacking in specific details about the product, the user experience and the reasons for a good or bad review rating, there may be something wrong. In the course of using a product, and then relating your experience it is natural to share specific details, something about the process of using the product, the way the experience makes you feel, or what happened when it was used. Vague reviews are of little value in general, and could signal that a person really doesn’t have personal knowledge of the product."

IBM Wants to Implant Fake Brains in Real Brains to Prevent Seizures
"Harrer and team are running this neural network on an experimental IBM chip called TrueNorth, which, like the neural network they’re using, is built in the image of the human brain. Because it uses a similar architecture, TrueNorth is rather adept at running neural networks. And because it consumes very little power, Harrer and team hope to one day use the chip to build a wearable device that, working in tandem with a brain implant, monitors for seizures around the clock and notifies patients before they happen."

Just by the nature of the process it’s necessary to build a list of potential solutions and then to compare them in some way to a list of business and technical requirements and to each other. Everyone has their own mental model on what a comparison should include but there are ways to facilitate the analysis of the information by presenting it in ways that can be easily consumed."
