David Mantica: Disruptive Impact of Digital Transformation on Business Analysts

Tuesday, August 15, 2023 -
5:00pm to 6:30pm

Nothing is worse in our B-to-B technology world than business speak 101 or jargon of the day or flavor of the week.  We have Cloud and Ether, PaaS, IasS, SaaS, win-win, zero sum game, etc., etc., etc.  If you have been involved in B-to-B technology the last twenty years or so, you name it you’ve heard it.

That is the initial “turn off” of Digital Transformation or DX.  Just another biz speak name that will go the way of last mile, Core Competency, Bleeding Edge, & Bricks and Clicks. The problem is, just beyond the hype, as you dig deeper into DX, something strange happens…, you find that it is real.

We have doubled the amount of data in the world over the last two years alone.  Although as humans we can’t deal with all that data, computers can.  We must ask the right questions and know what we are looking for and understand how to use what is outputted for decision making.  

So when you look at Digital Transformation you have to look at it from a “Systems Thinking” prospective.  A lot of the elements are already existing but combine existing elements with new technologies and fast silicon you can get something special.

This Chapter presentation digs into the business relevance of DX as well as the complete IoT technology picture.  This is a configuration technical web seminar. We are not going to talk about sensor hook up or Hadoop verse SQL for data management or Machine Learning.  We are going to discuss how the entire system is set up.  What the system produces and how to use that output.  In the end IoT produces Data, lots of it and automation.  As an organization interested in DX, providing solutions for DX or using DX, you better understand what you want to do with the data you produce and how you will drive productivity and value through the automation you set up, because sooner or later your company is going to asking you about how AI and DX can create a competitive advantage.  

Key Point:
IoT, IoT Ecosystem, Data, ML, generative AI
