Cloud Native Challenges and Opportunities with Continuous Delivery
"They focused too much on developers. They chose a model that would release every two weeks, however they didn’t make changes to the operations model. They didn’t change their release engineering process. Ops teams that were used to changes twice a year, we’re now being told they had to ship software every two weeks. That’s a pretty radical change in process and philosophy."

Build DevOps Teams, Start Your Digital Transformation
"Within the team structures, relegating tasks in ways that better make use of team members’ experience is beneficial, PagerDuty’s Stratton said. Traditionally, for example, senior developers and engineers have often been in charge of developing new software features while the junior staff has been tasked with bug fixes. However, it is the senior team members who likely have the experience to better understand the entire system that fixes often require. “Maybe as a senior engineer it is not as interesting to troubleshoot,” Stratton said. “But having experience gives you that understanding of how the system is built.”

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."

The Use Cases for Blockchain, Real and Hypothetical
" “Blockchain feels like the thing that is the hardest to parse the value out of the hype. With cloud computing, it was clearly an enormously hyped concept, but there were use cases and benefits. With big data it was coming out of actual real use cases at places like Google and Yahoo! With the Internet of Things, that’s probably the least well established of those at this point, but there are still established use cases for that. With blockchain it feels really preliminary."

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."

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."

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.)"

The conversations were similar, “How can I get my business leaders to embrace a digital transformation journey?” In essence, today manufacturing leaders are flooded by presentations from consultants attempting to sell a message to begin a digital journey. The reason? It is a new gig. ERP projects are drying up and the consultants need to create their new market."

"In this new era of increasing personalization, many companies have assumed that there must be a trade-off for reader and data privacy in order to get the reader to stay. But whether it’s GDPR, browser updates or even company values, relying on intrusive reader data might not be an option available. My hypothesis: By understanding the needs of their readers, publishers can make use of the audience data they have while respecting readers’ privacy."

"Data doesn’t support this either, according to a recent article in The Street. “When it comes to middle-skills jobs, Fuller found no difference in performance among people with and without a college degree. Yet employers still look for people with college degrees, who only make up about one-third of the entire workforce.” Fuller explains it with a fishing metaphor. “When you start up-credentialing your jobs you’re doing the equivalent of rowing your boat over to this tightly crowded part of the pond. Maybe there are fish elsewhere.”

A New Red Wagon? - by @lcecere #scm

As a result, process innovation is difficult. Break the cycle and invest in small projects with an unknown ROI. Build a governance process, like product stage gates, and focus on process innovation. Innovate at the edge and evolve at the core. Evolve both together. (Note: This is very different than the espoused bimodal evolutionary path.)"

How high a priority is that problem? (Perhaps ranked against a list of high-level priorities for the buyer. It’s not enough that it solves a problem, it needs to solve an important problem.)

What would be the economic value of solving that problem? (That is, how much value can this product provide.)"

"Eric Kimberling of Panoroma Consulting has some interesting views - and data - on cloud ERP adoption. But when we got into a back-and-forth about cloud ERP versus SaaS, it led us to the age-old ERP issue of over-customization. How do you advise clients determined to head down a problematic path?"

Nate Silver’s Lessons for Big Data from the Unpredicted Trump Victory
"Data is not interesting for its own sake, but for how it relates to everything else. It’s like a map, you need to see how the data relates to everything else. A coordinate itself doesn’t tell you anything. But as your data set gets larger, you go from five variables to ten, you begin to see an exponential increase in complexity."

Mentoring Is a Key to Broadening IT Diversity - podcast from @thenewstack
"The solution to the ongoing issue of diversity is not entirely a pipeline problem, Nampy explained. In particular, it is a problem with the culture of OpenStack and tech overall. “Culture is a big thing. The conversations happening in IRC that are happening are quite frankly not pleasant if you’re a woman. It’s quite male dominated, and conversations can be quite reflective of that. People forget that there are women in the meeting as well. That’s one thing I would like to see cleaned up a bit is the culture.”

Enterprise hits and misses – Apple’s monster tax bill needs context, outsourcers need re-invention- by @jonerp
"In this edition: the EU hits Apple with a massive tax bill, but why should buyers care? And why are outsourcers walking in boots of cement? Hint: robots. Plus: the Salesforce superlative index gets updated. "Incredible" holds its own, but "phenomenal" lags. Your whiffs include Dropbox and Samsung PR messups, Warner Brothers playing copyright troll on itself, and I'm calling a self-whiff."
