Agile + ERP Implementations: Why It’s a Terrible Idea
"“Quick win” agile transformations allow functional areas or individual locations to get started on something right away, but it doesn’t fix the underlying issue of organizational misalignment, which is the real cause of digital transformation failure. For example, if your finance team decides to implement the “digital core” of SAP S/4HANA’s financial modules, this may or may not align with the needs of the rest of the organization."

Hertz vs. Accenture: How to Avoid Digital Transformation Failure
"Accenture does have a great name and is one of the largest systems integrators on the planet, but putting all of your eggs in one basket is rarely a good idea. If you don’t have the resources or experience to provide internal project management, business process management or organizational change management, bring in outside help. Systems integrators are not a silver bullet to outsource your entire digital transformation to, so simply don’t allow your SI to singularly hold the keys to your success."

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."

Lessons from a Microsoft Dynamics 365 Failure
"In this D365 case study of what not to do, the client’s reseller wasn’t working from a project plan. Clear roles and responsibilities for internal and external resources were never defined or documented. There was no risk register, issues log, or decision criteria. And the client had very little insight into project spend (as the integrator was behind invoicing them), nor did they have a clear understanding of how the estimated costs were trending.

Although this may all sound like basic blocking in tacking, it was missing from this project. And in this case, the integrator wasn’t providing any direction or guidance to their customer."

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."

Risks of Microsoft Dynamics 365 System Integrators
"Choosing a technical system integrator is an important decision for any digital transformation. But the risks of Microsoft Dynamics 365 system integrators are even greater than for other ERP solutions.

While SAP, Oracle, and other ERP vendors have tightly controlled their ecosystems, Microsoft Dynamics has traditionally taken a hands-off approach to their system integrators. This has led to a high degree of variation in the market and almost too many options to choose from. This can make it difficult for many organizations to select the best Dynamics 365 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."

When is it Time to Say Goodbye to Accenture, Deloitte, IBM or KPMG?
"Here are a few signs to look for:

You are in deployment mode and your cost per day for ERP consultants is greater than 15% of the rate you would pay for a solid independent
The SI’s team lacks experience and you are spending more time developing their talent than your own
You need fresh ideas to solve new problems and the SI team you hired is not qualified
Your SI is attempting to spread its influence well beyond your program without your direction"

8 Questions to Evaluate the Resiliency of a Digital Transformation Program
"One of the most common “outs” for a systems integrator on a fixed price contract is that the users were not ready to accept the system. The bottom line is that users can’t be blamed if they don’t know what is coming. PMO’s should be collaborating with line management to secure resources for data preparation, testing, training, support, and implementation. PMO’s should also be proactively engaging legacy application support teams to secure resources for the same demands."

Intel’s latest chip is designed for computing at the edge - by @ron_miller
"As we develop increasingly sophisticated technologies like self-driving cars and industrial internet of things sensors, it’s going to require that we move computing to the edge. Essentially this means that instead of sending data to the cloud for processing, it needs to be done right on the device itself because even a little bit of latency is too much."

Existing Service Providers – What’s Your Cost of Incumbency?
"If you’re like most companies we advise you’re already focused on quantifying the next round of savings initiatives you’re willing to commit to and you’re beginning to identify where and how you’ll realize those savings. You may have even found some success in prior years in looking for savings with your existing services providers."

The Risks of DNS Hijacking Are Serious and You Should Take Countermeasures
"Enabling HTTPS for all web apps and services hosted on a domain name should be a top priority. This will protect users from man-in-the-middle attacks in general and has many other benefits, like the ability to turn on HTTP/2 and gain a significant performance boost. However, to mitigate the effects of DNS hijacking, HTTPS needs to be combined with a security mechanism called HSTS."

MIT’s Food Computers Set the Stage for Open Source Agriculture
"There are some indications of this shift: the appearance of urban rooftop farms, an explosion of interest in automated hydroponic systems. The problem with all these systems is that their platforms are proprietary, and the lack of a common platform between them means these won’t necessarily scale up."
"Most  of  us  probably  don’t  think  too  much  about  the  foodstuffs  we  buy  in  supermarket.  But  behind  scenes  today’s  food  production  system  relies  on  a  centralized  industrial-scale  supply  chain  that’s  still  dependent  upon  soil-based  agriculture  for  majority  our  crops.Most  crops.culture  science  technology  top  stories  big  data  computer  computing  machine  learning  massachusetts  institute  open  source

Progress Report - CapGemini is ready for the Digital Economy - but challenges remain - by @holgermu
"On the concern side CapGemini needs to become more global, successfully re-skill its European workforce and find more productized go to market offerings. It is good to have identified over 4 dozen IP assets, now they need to be built out into product, something system integrators have traditionally struggled with, but the prize is too big in the 201x years for trying (at least). We would like to see CapGemini make a few full hearted (real) product bets. Customers want faster, shrink-wrapped, business user driven solutions that do not require RfPs, project teams and people travelling the world in small boxes."
