The Luxury Bag Brand That's Reinventing Made-To-Order with #digitalDisruption | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
By marrying tech with traditional craftsmanship, 1Atelier hopes to redefine bespoke fashion for the digital age.
Farid Mheir's insight:

1Atelier leverages a fully digital customer experience and strong back office systems to provide one-of-a-kind luxury handbags in 21 days instead of many months for traditional firms such as Hermes or Louis Vuitton.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Niche retailers and small handmade manufacturers should look into this new disrupting company for clues into how best to transform traditional industries that are based on hand-made, custom, high quality solutions and products. Going digital does not mean sacrificing customer interactions or hand-made manufacturing: it can revamp, improve and recharge the back office support systems and processes.

The Value of a Hacked Company via @Krebs

The Value of a Hacked Company via @Krebs | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Today’s more clueful cybercrooks understand that if they can identify compromised systems inside organizations that may be sought-after targets of organized cybercrime groups, those groups might be willing to pay handsomely for such ready-made access.
Farid Mheir's insight:

Krebs explains how cybercrime organizations profit from the sale of companies they hack and gain access to usernames and systems. It also provides guidance on how to improve security in large organizations.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

I find that too often we focus on individual hacks or threats but rarely consider security at a strategic level - assigning real cost to security breaches and thus looking for funding to address the biggest risks. Moreover, as is stated here, awareness training of resources may actually be a very effective - and relatively low cost? - way to improve security and protect an organization.

Pokémon Go isn’t a fad. It’s a beginning.

Pokémon Go isn’t a fad. It’s a beginning. | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Augmented reality begins with Pokémon. It begins as a toy. But it won’t remain a toy. It’s going to become an industry, a constant, a coping mechanism, a way of life. It will change how we spend our time, how we compete for status, how we interact with our loved ones. It will change the behaviors we think of as normal — already we’re seeing Pokémon Go run into racism; it won’t be long until AR cuts across other fault lines in our society.
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Read the article. Pokemon GO is more than a game, the start of a new era where virtual moves into physical world more and more.

 

Also read "The brilliant mechanisms of pokemon GO" to understand why this is transformative http://tcrn.ch/29Nhtau

Robot arm wins Amazon's tech award: a new age of eCommerce improvement is coming

Robot arm wins Amazon's tech award: a new age of eCommerce improvement is coming | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
A mechanical arm created by a Dutch team of roboticists wins Amazon's Picking Challenge award.
Farid Mheir's insight:

Amazon has invested heavily in warehouse automation to reduce costs and improve quality. It holds an event every year to select the best robots to accomplish warehousing tasks, this year to pick different items from store shelves.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Looking at the video it is clear that the technology remains primitive. That being said, with large investments made by Amazon in Kiva autonomous warehouse robots in the past, it is clear they are serious about warehouse automation.

 

It is clear that order fulfillment and delivery remain the 2 bottlenecks of eCommerce providers, adding costs and delays to the process compared to brick and mortar retailers. If Amazon could develop fully autonomous warehouses and have low cost delivery by leveraging Amazon Fresh grocery delivery trucks, it could have a profound impact on the viability of online pure plays and mark the decline in store-based commerce, which still account for 95% of all sales in the USA today.

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Merchandising is the least considered element of the digital eCommerce pillars (others are strategy, marketing, selling, fulfillment and support). This paper reminds us that eCommerce relies on detailed, accurate, and timely information about products because it is what consumers rely on mostly when making buying decisions. It is thus important to include merchandising activities as part of a balanced digital transformation roadmap.

Farid Mheir's insight:

Fatal car crash of a Tesla on highway using automated driving mode. The post provides some information about the crash, which appears to be due to a condition that was never programmed into the system (side hit).

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Autonomous vehicles will become more and more popular in the future and this event reminds us of the complexities involved. We are very early in this field and much like aviation there should be formal investigations and corrective actions taken when such crash occur so that all manufacturers can learn from crashes. This calls for an international database of car crashes and there should be mandatory requirements for new self-driving systems to "pass" the exam ie. to ensure they all react correctly to previously seen car crashes and other incidents. 

 

This thus becomes an opportunity to learn from the global past experience of millions of drivers and billions of kilometers driven in all conditions, across all countries. I am not aware of such a central database but would expect it to become a reality if we want autonomous driving to be a transformation beyond what we have today: each driver learning for themselve.

Inside Alphabet’s money-spinning, terrorist-foiling, gigabit Wi-Fi kiosks | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
The urban sidewalk kiosks from Sidewalk Labs will sport a battery of sensors to monitor cities, traffic and suspicious packages.
Farid Mheir's insight:

Alphabet new company called sidewalk has proposed a wifi kiosk that can be installed anywhere to provide a variety of services including: wifi, advertising, noise sensor, harmful package detection, amongst other. This is part of a smart city push.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Google focus now is more and more about bridging the real world with digital technologies. This new device and new company shows how important the field of smart cities is - very seldom does Google invest its energy into areas that do not have the potential to become billion dollar revenue generating endeavours in the short term. 

 

The most interesting aspect of this new product is that it blends together many different solutions into a single product. The kiosks serves as a wifi access point - which has often been considered alone - and blends with sounds, video and other sensors then merges advertisement to pay for itself. Brilliant! We need more devices like that, especially in stores where we often see single purpose devices being deployed as price check points or ipad based information kiosks. They could be so much more....

Farid Mheir's insight:

Video that presents an autonomous robots performing household chores such as putting garbage in the trash can and filling the dishwasher, going up stairs, handing out a soda can to a person sitting, etc.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

As far as I know, Boston Dynamics (Google) is one of the most advanced company in the field of robotics and as such represent state of the art in autonomous robotic technology. We can thus expect robots to play a bigger role in corporations in the coming years and robotics should be part of all forward thinking digital transformation strategic plans.

 

Looking at the video, one can only wonder what a swarm of those robots would change when you think about manufacturing (of course) but also product delivery, distribution logistics, surveillance, war, crime, etc. We are truly entering a new era where our world will transform with the introduction of of autonomous, always connected, machines that work and live (!) amongst us.

LED Quandary “Built to Last”: planned obsolescence vs Long Lasting Products

LED Quandary “Built to Last”: planned obsolescence vs Long Lasting Products | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
All of this would amount to little more than a business-school case study of history quirkily repeating itself, if it weren’t for the fact that finding an economic model for products that last is increasingly seen as critical to environmental sustainability.
Farid Mheir's insight:

Describes the impact that LED lights long life - tens of years under normal use - has on the lightbulb industry. It raises concerns that new longer lasting technologies has on certain industries and compares it to the environmental impact of planned obsolescence. As with all New Yorker papers, this one is well written and well researched.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Lack of government regulations and incentives means companies often have to build planned obsolescence into their new products. Digital transformation, Internet of Things and many other technologies bring with them the issue of sustainable business model, which should be addressed early. Solutions such as repairability and services that go along with new products should be at the center of companies strategies when they look at new technologies.

Free Gartner Research: Digital Marketing Transit Map

Free Gartner Research: Digital Marketing Transit Map | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Using the Map

The Digital Marketing Transit Map is designed to identify the best sources for your needs and acquire systems that work well together. It will help you:

  • Identify the connections among business functions, application tracks and providers.
  • Find additional research or structure questions about strategy and best practices as well as providers, products, and selection criteria.
  • Mediate discussions between marketing and IT.
Interpreting the Map

Navigate the complexity of a fragmented and confusing digital marketing landscape. Elements of the map include:

  • Neighborhoods represent functional regions that can be thought of as practice areas within an organization.
  • Tracks connect regions and can be thought of as application services that share common objectives and information.
  • Stations represent interaction points that can be thought of as vendor and product categories that provide platforms and point solutions.
  • Intersections represent transfer points where solutions may serve more than one business area.

 

Farid Mheir's insight:

Gartner has mapped the different skills, technologies and functional areas that digital marketers should master.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

Although I've never been a fan of the transit map analogy, I find this one captures one key message for marketing professionals: digital marketing is different than traditional marketing in the tools, technologies and skills required. As the diagram shows, they are more akin to software programming than they are of the traditional marketing curriculum. For those  that do not yet have those skills in-house, get help. For those that have the skills, make sure they are sharp and remain up-to-date because this technology world changes rapidly.

Digital Commerce Spending and Expectations Are on the Rise says @gartner #survey

Digital Commerce Spending and Expectations Are on the Rise says @gartner #survey | Digital Transformation of Businesses | Scoop.it
Summary

Gartner's 2015-2016 CMO Spend Survey shows that marketers are spending more on digital commerce. The survey also reveals marketing is expected to take more digital commerce responsibility. Marketing leaders connect programs and processes to the buying journey for digital commerce results.

Overview

Impacts

  • Digital commerce spending has grown from 8% to 11% of the digital marketing budget — the biggest increase of any category — indicating further expansion of marketing's role in digital commerce.
  • Forty percent of marketers rank digital commerce as one of the top areas where management's expectations of marketing have increased, highlighting the need to tie marketing to the customer buying journey.
  • Sixty-four percent of marketers rank digital commerce as a top area for marketing technology investment, pointing to the importance of technology that links marketing and commerce systems and processes.

Recommendations

  • Pivot from a marketing approach that focuses mainly on brand building, lead generation and customer engagement to take accountability for driving results through commerce transactions and lead conversion.
  • Sharpen your data-driven marketing skills to determine where customers are in the buying journey. Design marketing programs that lead to conversion and measure the impact of marketing efforts.
  • Integrate digital commerce into your marketing technology strategy by defining critical capabilities, such as segmentation and conversion analytics. Find providers that connect marketing to sales channels.
Farid Mheir's insight:

Gartner survey of marketing leaders provides insight into where marketing organizations spend their budget. Their analysis shows that having an impact on sales has become more and more important for marketing departments to demonstrate the value of their spending.

 

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT

No longer can marketing be just about drawing customers to the store doors. This survey shows that data and analytics now provides the means to measure the impact on sales that marketing activities provide and that leaders are asking their marketing department to demonstrate the return that their activities have on sales.
