Where Would We Be Without All of the BullS&%T?
"My questions for the technologists were, “How do you define cognitive?” With hearing this question, most will answer with silence. Only Enterra answers the question with the definition of a semantic inference engine. Instead, most of the solutions are aligning data using machine learning or improving planning models through better use of math. Few are driving innovation to drive autonomous supply chain planning through better management of exceptions (not just showing the exceptions, but giving suggested action)."

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."

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."

Plex Systems Accelerates Push Into IoT With DATTUS Acquisition
"Think about it. As consumers, we didn’t loudly voice our desire for AI or NLP. But that didn’t stop Apple from delivering Siri on an iPhone. Pretty soon Microsoft delivered Cortana on Windows 10; Google delivered Google Now; Amazon delivered Alexa and now Bixby is on your (newer) Samsung Galaxy. We see these digital technologies being absorbed into the manufacturing landscape in much the same way, as long as solution providers like Plex and DATTUS continue to innovate and push them into the mainstream."

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."

Supreme Court: Police Need Warrant for Mobile Location Data
"The U.S. Supreme Court today ruled that the government needs to obtain a court-ordered warrant to gather location data on mobile device users. The decision is a major development for privacy rights, but experts say it may have limited bearing on the selling of real-time customer location data by the wireless carriers to third-party companies."

Provoking the Industry to Move Past Incrementalism - by @lcecere #scm
"Today, we find ourselves in a hype cycle. Instead of pushing innovation forward, I see companies using the term “digital” as a path for IT spending. It becomes a means to finish projects. The focus is on digitization—automating today’s processes—versus rethinking process excellence based on the art of the possible."

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.)"

Three Cool Technologies - by @lcecere
"Driving supply chain innovation is hard. This is why I have a soft spot in my heart for technology innovators. As I sit with my coffee, I am reviewing a response by a large system integrator to a client that is just bad. Really BAD. The large system integrator is blindly recommending the technology they know and not the full range of products. The client is looking for innovative solutions, and the consultant is hawking yesterday’s approaches. Buyer beware!"

Summoning the Courage to Redefine Forecasting: Upending the Apple Cart - by @lcecdere
"Unfortunately, while business leaders know there is a problem, there is an unwillingness to act. Today’s solutions are not adequate. Yet, few will test an alternative approach. The good news is that new solutions offer promise. The bad news is unlearning traditional forecasting processes is hard. Business users need to be open to testing new approaches and technology solution providers need to prove the value."

A New Red Wagon? - by @lcecere #scm
"Today’s organization is handcuffed by a forced march for IT standardization and process uniformity. Each project requires a defined ROI. It is ludicrous to ask for a ROI on the unknown. 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.)"

Pizza, the unsung agent of the robot revolution
"With that short-lived episode over, the roadmap for robotic deliveries is now back under debate, at least if you were expecting arms and legs. But how about an autonomous delivery box on wheels or an airborne drone instead? These are all at the prototype stage but they’re definitely coming; in fact, there's a wide range of innovative technology under investigation by retailers to achieve a competitive edge, from drones to chatbots to redesigned Mars rovers and slasher robots."

How To Succeed at Failure with Microservices
"Reinhardt shares three ways he steered his team towards a new success, one that saw that same team that had failed at the reorientation introduce structural changes that have since brought their monolithic codebase deployments down from 5-10 days to thirty minutes."

Are You Putting Lipstick on a Pig? Or Creating New Value? - by @lcecere #scm
"Open Source needs maintenance. With the evolution of open source software, be sure that the solution you are purchasing can be maintained and evolved over time. Ask tough questions to make sure the solution can be maintained by the company selling the solution. For example, if you are buying Hadoop solutions be sure to verify the number of committers (write-back to the code base). While many consulting partners are offering open source Hadoop solutions, be sure that it is maintainable."

Trying to Figure Out New Forms of Analytics - by @lcecere #scm
"The average manufacturing company has over 150 technologies; yet, they cannot get to data. The IT environments are heterogeneous. The analyst views of use of an ERP backbone to drive analytics is quickly eroding. It is just too complex."

No Easter Bunny? - by @lcecere #scm
"Build a scrappy, cross-functional team to test and learn using new forms of analytics. Give this team a mission. Don’t let them drift. Build the charter of this cross-functional team with the goal in mind. Give the team something that is mission critical, and then market the impact of their contributions."

Cisco Buys Jasper Technologies For $1.4 Billion - by @ron_miller
"Cisco announced today it was buying Jasper Technologies, a company that sells an Internet of Things cloud platform, for $1.4 billion. With Jasper, Cisco gets a company that understands the burgeoning Internet of Things market. While IoT is term bandied about quite a bit, it simply means connected machines talking to one another over the internet."

Rethinking the How…. - by @lcecere #scm
"The sun is shining brightly through the conference room windows as I listen to the consultants talk. It is buzzword bingo at its finest. The air is thick. It is comical. The term Big Data is all the range. The market has dried up for large Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), and the large consultants are in the market staking their claim for their next gig."
