Good read form Cindy Howson (@BIScorecard) on BI trends. However, it somewhat shows that BI is facing an innovation crisis : a latercomer in the cloud struggling to reach our mobile devices and to get closer to the lines of businesses with a controlled and wide adoption of data discovery. CIOs urgently need to accelerate on their BI strategy, otherwise they will continue to see BI on the top of their priority list year after year. The good news, as the post shows, is that the technology is ready as an enabler.

Braamfontein is poised for a high tech revolution.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Braamfontein tech hubs - "

The Joburg Centre for Software engineering (JSCE) at the University of Witwatersrand is driving the transformation of Braamfontein into a cutting edge technology precinct.

The idea of the tech hubs is to establish co-working spaces which will offer skills development opportunities, software and hardware design.

“People can come to create and collaborate in technology innovations. Coming out of those collaborations are ideas for new businesses and startups. The tech hubs will also run technology courses and events,” JSCE director Professor Barry Dwolatzky told Moneyweb.

JSCE plans to repurpose existing buildings that are owned by the University of Witwatersrand to host the tech hubs to save costs and “show what can be done with inner city Joburg buildings”.

Braamfontein’s location is favourable to play host, as it is at the heart of the economy and in close proximity to tertiary institutions such as the University of Johannesburg and University of Witwatersrand.

Can Good Leadership Skills Be a Bad Thing?

Can Good Leadership Skills Be a Bad Thing? | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
Every strength becomes a weakness when overused, so find the right balance.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

create a culture of   "Leaders need to create a culture of accountability, for example, but the question is how much do you need? You can have no accountability and get an organization that loses its best people and promotes an atmosphere of cynicism because poor performers are not dealt with or are even rewarded or leadership fails to follow through on commitments. By the same token, you can have too much accountability with leadership that micromanages, stifles creativity and doesn’t allow for mistakes.

A successful leader is the one who finds the optimal point along the continuum of accountability. That leader is Goldilocks finding the bed that is just right. That balance point can change based on the personal style of each leader and the unique circumstances in each organization. It isn’t one size fits all.

How can you use the latest discoveries in brain science to improve your life? Here are some techniques.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

train your brain - " Lower your stress level by managing your thoughts -  There is ample research proving that your brain cannot tell the difference between a real and imagined threat; the physical response is the same. In  Mystic Cool: A Proven Approach to Transcend Stress, Achieve Optimal Brain Function, and Maximize Your Creative Intelligence, Don Joseph Goewey provides a powerful tool—called the Clear Button—to thwart fearful thoughts and stop the escalating stress. This 10-second strategy works because it creates a distraction from the primitive brain where fear resides. Care to test it out? Follow these steps.

  1. Imagine that there is a button in the center of your left palm; imagine that this button, when pressed, will send a signal to your brain to stop the fearful thinking.
  2. Press the button with your right hand as you become aware of your breath.
  3. Take three easy breaths counting them out.
  4. Imagine a different color for each number.
  5. As you exhale, relax in the present moment.

Parker J. Palmer, founder of the Center for Courage and Renewal once said, “Science requires an engagement with the world, a live encounter between the knower and the known.” In other words, knowing is not enough. We do ourselves and others a great disservice when we don’t decide to act on the gift of knowledge. It’s the difference between hording information and developing wisdom.

Psychology of Space: What Should Business Look, Smell and Feel Like?

Psychology of Space: What Should Business Look, Smell and Feel Like? | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
How does your workplace feel to you? The spaces we occupy shape who we are and and how we behave, which directly influences our psychological well-being and creative performance -- and the success of business.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Recently, Google released its plans for a new London headquarters, set to open in 2016, which will occupy a space of one million square feet and house an outdoor swimming pool, a full-length indoor football field, a climbing wall and a roof garden — showing that the search engine giant takes its spaces seriously.

Googlers will have all their recreation needs met at work. They’ll be able to ride their bicycles into the building’s bike storage room, take a shower in the on-site facilities and ride around the building on micro-scooters. There will also be plenty of wide open space to use for networking and collaborating with others, in addition to the open-plan desk space to work autonomously.

The new Google space will provide more flexibility and room for relaxation and enjoyment — a way to create contented and happy employees who will perform better and stick with the company longer.

Creating a cultural hearth drives connection

A study by architectural historian Charles Rice, “The Emergence of the Interior,” found there was great importance in the understanding and implementation of interior design psychology on the performance, efficiency and well-being of an individual.

Handbag economics: The ideology of austerity

Handbag economics: The ideology of austerity | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
from Mary Mellor Handbag economics is the common sense of our age.  Public sectors are like households, they must live within their means, balance their books, cut their coat according to their clo...
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Economics - "

According to handbag economics there is only one breadwinner in the economy, the private sector. Only the private sector can determine the size of the public household budget. In this gendered analogy, the public-housewife must not ask for more house-keeping, or borrow more, to make ends meet. Most emphatically, the public-housewife must not set up a printing press in the back room to create her own money.

There is a shed, though, at the end of the garden beyond her reach.  This shed has a printing press and every time the private sector-breadwinner runs out of funds he asks the gardener-central banker to crank it up. Despite this, handbag economics denies that the public household should have any access to this money, even though it has a monopoly on producing coin and its garden shed has the monopoly on producing banknotes. Handbag economics, in any case, has its own money supply, debt.

New money as debt is created through the banking system. Anyone with half an idea can ask to have new numbers credited to their bank account on which they can draw. Preferably though, it should be a big idea like betting on the value of sterling, buying a chemist chain, or smaller bets like buying a football club. Mortgages are another great way to increase money supply through debt, particularly if prices are rising and houses are changing hands quickly

“Your neurons can fire for a while with the energy they have in them, but not for long: After a dozen seconds, each needs more energy,” research psychologist Peter Killeen tells Fast Company. After those first dozen seconds, ever-hungry neurons order up stored-up energy. If they don’t get the glucose or lactate they need–two of their favorite fuels–they’ll fire more slowly. If your brain doesn’t have enough energy available, you’ll have a worse shot at keeping track of those breaths. You’ll experience a deficit in your attention

Male and Female Brains Really Are Built Differently

Male and Female Brains Really Are Built Differently | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
The hemispheres of women's brains are more interconnected. Does that matter?
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Mars, Venus - ". . .we still have no idea why men or women do anything in particular. But the study, released today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is interesting because it is one of the first to discover differences in the brain’s structural connectivity in a large sample size of people from a variety of age groups.

Male (upper) and female (lower) brain connections (PNAS)


By analyzing the subjects’ MRIs using diffusion imaging, the scientists explored the brains’ fiber pathways, the bundles of axons that act as highways routing information from one part of the mind to the other. After grouping the image by sex and inspecting the differences between the two aggregate “male” and “female” pictures, the researchers found that in men, fiber pathways run back and forth within each hemisphere, while in women they tend to zig-zag between the left, or “logical,” and right, or “creative,” sides of the brain."

This month, Forrester released its list of top technology trends for the three year time horizon. Now that consumers and employees have continuous connectivity and an endless supply of apps, the CIO must drive the nimbleness that will be demanded by employees and customers, while he or she must also do so securely. These trends are so woven into the business drivers, that IT leaders must become much more strategic, providing the rationale for the changes that are afoot. With this background in mind, Forrester identifies the following ten technology trends for the 2014 through 2016.
