Your Business Blueprint Should Dictate Your SAP S/4HANA Implementation – Not the Other Way Around
"If you talk to a sales rep from SAP or a system integrator such as Deloitte, Accenture, or Capgemini, they will tell you the opposite. They will say that SAP “best practices” should define your business and that your people should just change to adopt to software functionality. They will also push you to implement SAP as quickly as possible – not because it’s best for your business, but because it’s best for SAP and the system integrator."

How to Avoid Losing Control of Your SAP S/4HANA Transformation
"One of the biggest mistakes is to hand complete control of the project over to your system integrator. Yes, they probably have a deeper competency in SAP than your team does, but you need to be the one to manage their resources, expectations, and deliverables. They should report to your project team rather than managing the overall project. And if things aren’t working out and can’t be remediated, don’t be afraid to fire your SAP system integrator."

How Machine Learning Improves Manufacturing Inspections, Product Quality & Supply Chain Visibility
"Manufacturers’ most valuable data is generated on shop floors daily, bringing with it the challenge of analyzing it to find prescriptive insights fast – and an ideal problem for machine learning to solve.

Manufacturing is the most data-prolific industry there is, generating on average 1.9 petabytes of data every year according to the McKinsey Global Insititute. Supply chains, sourcing, factory operations, and the phases of compliance and quality management generate the majority of data."

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."

An Open Letter to Database Administrators: Be the DBA of the Future!
"Now that everyone in IT, including the CIO, realizes the significance of the challenges associated with the database change process, DBAs need to take part in the creation of the solution. And that solution must be able to handle the rapid increase in the number applications and the subsequent smaller, more frequent releases."

The Four Critical Practices of Effective Software Development
"Small stories are great for several reasons. First, if the story calls for no more than about a day and a half of work, then if a developer miscalculates the time estimate for the job by 25 percent, that is still less than a day of additional work. This means that it’s easily possible on a weekly basis to understand whether a project is on schedule or not. If stories are estimated to take weeks, then it’s incredibly difficult to know you’re behind until after the deadline has passed."

Penthouse, Poorhouse, or Courthouse: Where Will Your Project Take You? - by @micdoane
"One of the saddest aspects of the work of an expert witness for a failed IT software project is reading tales of woe in various depositions and realizing how so much heartache and wasted money could have been avoided if only people had spoken up about the reasons for the rift between the client team and the service provider team."
