Digital Transformation – You Can’t Get There from Here

Digital Transformation is one of the hottest topics of discussion in C-Suites around the world – and with good reason. Executives are facing the rising expectations of the connected consumer; the revolutionary potential of such emerging technologies as 3D Printing, the Internet of Things, and Artificial Intelligence; and continued pressure from competitors and the market – simultaneously!

The world will change more in the next five years than it has in the past fifty. Digital Transformation seems, and is, a logical strategic response to these challenges and opportunities. But, there is much misunderstanding as to what Digital Transformation actually is.

Perhaps the most widely held misconception about Digital Transformation is that Digital Transformation is the use of digital technologies to connect the people and systems within the organization to one another and to the appropriate people and systems outside the organization. This is a worthy goal, and one with great benefits for the organizations and their people.

But, it’s not Digital Transformation.

Digital Transformation is a fundamental rethinking of the underlying business model – both within the organization, and in the broader business ecosystems of which it is a part. To achieve true Digital Transformation, you must first understand the real value proposition. It’s not about implementing the technology. It’s about using the technology to provide customers a consistently great experience and outstanding value.

One of the best examples of Digital Transformation is the way in which Steve Jobs and Apple transformed the music industry over the past decade. The old record stores and the distribution systems which supplied them were supplanted by iTunes and the Internet. Traditional audio playback devices such as turntables and CD players were replaced by internet enabled mobile devices.

The opportunity for you and your organization is to apply the same concepts to digitally transforming your business and industry. But, you can’t achieve Digital Transformation by starting with today’s business model and making incremental changes to it. You can’t get there from here.

Digital Strategist, Technology Futurist, author, and consultant Jack Shaw has been helping organizations make the changes needed for Digital Transformation for 30 years. Come listen and learn how your business can plan and implement a winning strategy for Digital Transformation.

The Future of Manufacturing and Distribution

  • 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing
  • The Internet of Things
  • Intelligent Production Planning and Scheduling
  • Optimized Picking, Packing, Loading, and Shipping

The future of manufacturing and distribution depends on emerging technologies that will change both industries more over the next 5 – 10 years than in the last 50.

Additive Manufacturing, also called 3D Printing, will enable us to create objects and to repair, replicate, or replace them quickly and at greatly reduced costs. At the same time, it will have very significant implications for the role of distributors as 3D Printed objects can be created at or close to the point of consumption.

3D Printing will also facilitate deployment of the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT is a critical component of a fundamental shift in human history. Enabling the IoT means not merely appending, but embedding sensors, simple processors, and communications capabilities into an ever widening array of objects of all kinds. Doing so will provide a critical link between the digital and physical worlds.

Increasing levels of intelligence mean that advanced scheduling systems will soon be able, automatically and dynamically, to reroute production orders optimally through production facilities as new orders come in and conditions change during a shift.

Moreover, sophisticated planning systems will soon take into account such factors as changing economic conditions and even the weather in order to identify the best possible combinations of production planning, picking, packing, loading, shipping, and distribution for their products.

On the supply side, we will see breakthroughs in shared supply networks that will simultaneously cut costs and speed availability of parts and materials for manufacturers and finished products for distributors, retailers, and end consumers.

Technology Futurist, author, and consultant Jack Shaw speaks on these emerging innovations in Manufacturing and Distribution. Come listen and learn how your business can plan to take full advantage of these impending breakthroughs.

Are You Ready for the Internet of Things – and the Future of Everything?

Of course you’ve heard of the Internet of Things. Moving beyond computers and communications devices, we’ll append chips to some other high-value objects that will allow us to also receive information from and about them. That, in turn will allow us to perform some analyses to better utilize those items. Sounds useful for a few specialized industrial applications, but really, how could that affect our business? Right?

Wrong!

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a critical component of a fundamental shift in human history. Enabling the IoT means not merely appending, but embedding sensors, simple processors, and communications capabilities into an ever widening array of objects of all kinds. Doing so will provide a critical link between the digital and physical worlds. With the IoT, we’ll no longer have to capture information about physical objects, they’ll report on themselves – their location, status, condition, and environment.

Experts estimate that, by 2020, anywhere from 50 billion to 200 billion “Things” will be part of the IoT. This will mean an exponential increase in data to be analyzed. Our digital infrastructures will have to rapidly expand to accommodate this torrent of data. But, by doing so, we’ll develop integrated digital / physical ecosystems that will respond to our needs, in many cases, before we even recognize them.

And this definition of the Internet of Things is just the surface manifestation. With Cloud Computing, complex analytical processes can happen in the Cloud – not within the “Thing” itself. 3D Printing will enable us to manufacture IoT enabled objects and repair, replicate, or replace them quickly and at low cost. And Intelligent Agent technologies will manage the distribution, deployment, and utilization of those objects far faster and more efficiently than our current systems and processes could ever hope to.

The Internet of Things will impact every industry from manufacturing to retail, from healthcare to financial services, and from service industries to governments and not for profits. If your organization makes, distributes, buys, sells or uses tangible objects of any kind, you’ll be part of the Internet of Things.

Technology Futurist Jack Shaw has been helping people and organizations understand and plan for the Internet of Things and the broader ecosystems it helps to compose for years. Watch and listen as he helps your team understand the implications for your business and industry, and as he helps you to accelerate the strategic planning process you’ll need to gain the maximum benefits from the Internet of Things going forward.

3D Printing – A Catalyst for Economic Disruption

This topic is perfect for manufacturers, but just as important for distributors, retailers, logistics and transportation companies. You’ll find attached to this email a topic description. Here is a brief summary:

3D Printing, also referred to as Additive Manufacturing, is more than a powerful new manufacturing technique. When combined with other emerging technologies, it is rapidly emerging as a powerful economic stimulant for manufacturers, supply chains, and the global economy.

In this presentation Jack Shaw, voted one of the world’s Top 5 Technology Futurists for 2014, addresses the What, Why, When, Where, and How of Additive Manufacturing. He shows the impact it is already having and explores the keystone role it will play in the digital economy of the 2020’s and beyond.

OmniCommerce – Meeting Business’ Next Grand Challenge

As we become an ever more mobile global society, people expect to be able to work, shop, and play from wherever they are located. And customers expect, indeed demand, a seamless experience across physical stores, web presence, and their mobile devices – that is, everywhere. This is OmniCommerce.

But making this happen means businesses must integrate their physical processes and their IT systems to provide consistent customer experiences and to make near real time decisions on virtually everything from product designs to marketing campaigns to investment strategies.

Join us for a session that will both stimulate action for today and catalyze change for tomorrow.

Bracing for the Big One: Business Systems and Processes That Think for Themselves

The Big One is coming, and it’s coming soon. Intelligent Systems will utterly transform business, commerce, and society. Self-optimizing production scheduling, autonomic supply chains, and self-configuring business ecosystems are just a few examples of Intelligent Systems that will shake the world.

In this presentation, Jack will cite case studies, real-world examples, and success stories show how leading edge businesses are using these technologies to cut costs, improve service, and promote innovation.

Join us as he explains intelligent systems and what your organizations can do to plan for the most dynamic, breathtaking set of business technologies yet.

Intelligent Decision Management – Infusing Discipline into Decisions

We now have access to more information than we can possibly comprehend. In many cases, this glut of data has made it even more difficult to make decisions than in the past. What we need are systems and processes that help us make better decisions, and can do so faster, more accurately, more consistently, more flexibly, and at lower cost than traditional systems.

In this presentation, Jack will help you understand Decision Management – the principles and processes that make up a sound approach to handling decisions in the organization – whether day-to-day or strategic in nature.

Emerging Technologies for Executives

Mobile Commerce, Cloud Computing, Social Media, “Big Data”, Intelligent Systems – these and other emerging technologies are changing how we do business at an accelerating rate. Most executives recognize that their companies should address these new technologies, but few fully understand their implications or how to respond to them.

In this speech, Jack presents practical, scalable ideas and innovations already in use. He shows how these technologies are facilitating deeper collaboration and how advanced practitioners are using them to better anticipate and meet the needs of their customers.

Staying One Step Ahead of Mobile Devices

The rapid growth in payments via mobile devices epitomizes two key elements of the mobile revolution — smartphones and tablets are changing the business landscape at wildfire speed, far in excess of anyone’s expectations.

The relentless surge in mobility is forcing marketing and IT departments to change priorities. Companies are realizing that they need to design their websites for mobile users first, rather than make this an afterthought.

With mobile devices growing in popularity, CIOs will need to rapidly adjust for this change or they’ll have to redo much of what they are currently planning relatively quickly.

Digital Transformation – You Can’t Get There from Here

Digital Transformation is one of the hottest topics of discussion in C-Suites around the world – and with good reason. Executives are facing the rising expectations of the connected consumer; the revolutionary potential of such emerging technologies as 3D Printing, the Internet of Things, and Artificial Intelligence; and continued pressure from competitors and the market – simultaneously!

Dr. Steven Greenspan Senior Vice President, Council for Technical Excellence CA Technologies, Inc

I’d like to thank you for your excellent presentation on “Leveraging Emerging Technologies to Drive Innovation” which you delivered last month for the Annual meeting of CA’s Council for Technical Excellence. I asked you to provide us with material that would be thought provoking for our most advanced technical experts while still understandable for those people who were less familiar with a given technology. You hit the mark squarely stimulating a dynamic discussion involving the full range of our attendees. Your use of video, cartoons, and humor also kept the presentation as entertaining as it was informative. The discussion session that you moderated right after your presentation was equally valuable. You did an excellent job of balancing perceptive responses to participants’ questions while encouraging insightful discussion among attendees. It was a delight to work with you. You delivered the results we were looking for, with relatively short notice. I can certainly recommend you for other CA events and for any others who are looking for clear, easy to understand insights on the strategic implications of emerging technologies. Thanks for your help!

Danita Boonchaisri, Director

Once again, thank you for the presentation you gave to our leadership program participants last week. Your management and consulting experiences provided our participants with a unique insight, and your expertise and enthusiasm for e-business strategy, process and technology has been instrumental in making this program a success. I appreciate your professionalism and ability to engage the participants; many spoke highly of the presentation and found it very enlightening. Best wishes for continued success and please call if you have any additional thoughts or comments on our program.

President Aperum, Inc

Thank you again for participating in our recent Solution Partner Conference. The message that you delivered in your keynote address, "Don't CompeteDominate", was right on the money and clearly helped set the stage for what has been described as the best conference ever conducted by this Company. Your insights into technology trends combined with your knowledge of the business clearly resonated with everyone in attendance and strongly reinforced my message that change is both inevitable and necessary as we all prepare for the future. As you know, several of our Solution Partners have already expressed a desire for your contributions in their marketing and business planning initiatives. This is exactly the type of collaboration that I refer to when describing successful partnerships. Thanks again for your contribution to our conference and in our ongoing efforts to strengthen our channel. I look forward to the next opportunity for us to work together.

W. Edward Pierce, AFLA Conference

I wanted to thank you for all of the excellent presentation at our recently completed Automotive Fleet & Leasing Association conference. As you can see from the attached attendee scores, your presentation was VERY well received. Since I was involved with our entire roster of speakers, I can attest to the fact that the hard work prior to the actual presentation that you put in speaking with our Board and doing your research in order to make your topic even more relevant to the audience was the key to the enthusiastic reception by the audience. This kind of dedication to the engagement is extraordinary, and I can’t thank you enough. I’d be glad to relay these sentiments to any organization looking for similar results.
