Big Data is dead! Long live Big data! As an ever increasing number of devices connect across mobile and fixed networks we’re seeing our data pools turn in to data lakes, and over time in to data oceans. But while everyone talks about it, how many people know how to really make use of the data they have, especially in a landscape of changing compliance and regulation? Get it right and it can be transformational, providing valuable insights and guidance for improving staff engagement and better customer experiences. Get it wrong and it can be costly on so many different levels.
The way we interact with each other has changed. Screen time replacing face-to-face time. Browsing high street stores replaced by websites. Hiring talent is no longer constrained by geography, and global markets have never been so easy to enter. Digital has led to changes to how people expect to interact and engage, and provides the tools and services your teams expect to use. Today, digital evolution isn’t just a strategy, it’s essential for survival - expected by staff and customers alike. Get the digital tools and services right and your business can flourish. Get it wrong and it can lead to extinction.
We are living in world which is increasingly connected; from eCommerce and cloud based solutions to IoT devices, national infrastructure and digital currencies. The solutions are designed to deliver better collaboration, enhanced customer and citizen engagement/services, and digital insights for better decision making. But with the productivity and efficiency improvements, the rise of new threats that look to steal, compromise, embarrass, or hold to ransom an organisation’s information is on the rise. And there’s one clear element that can make or break your cyber security efforts – the human factor.
The way we work has changed. Whether in the office, or in the field, technology continues to provide an answer. But is that answer always the right one for you? How can you ensure that the efficiencies and productivity promised can be realised? How will your recruitment practices ensure you have the right talent pool available for what’s to come? And how can you ensure the right culture can be created within your teams to embrace the right types of change? The answer might still be 42, but the way you get there might be very different to how you’ve managed change before.
Before the Internet of Things, we probably would have called it m2m. So what’s changed between “then” and “now”? How is 5G poised to create an extra surge toward the Internet of “Everything”? From providing deeper insights in to employees, customers/citizens, and the general world around us, the potential that this connectedness provides offers almost endless possibilities - but only when the right questions are asked.
