No Value Creation Without Culture - Corporate Culture Is The Glue

No Value Creation Without Culture - Corporate Culture Is The Glue | ICT Strategy | Scoop.it
Corporate culture is an incredibly powerful factor in a company’s long-term success. No matter how good your strategy is, when it comes down to it, people always make the difference. Not paying attention to culture undermines performance. The most important thing about culture is that it’s the only sustainable point of difference for any organisation. Anyone can copy your strategy, but nobody can copy your culture. So don’t leave it untended!

Deloitte's Tech Trends 2014: Disruptors & Enablers

Deloitte's Tech Trends 2014: Disruptors & Enablers | ICT Strategy | Scoop.it
“ Welcome to Deloitte’s fifth annual Technology Trends report. Each year, they study the ever-evolving technology landscape, focusing on disruptive trends that are transforming business, government, and society. Once again, they’ve selected 10 topics that have the opportunity to impact organizations across industries, geographies, and sizes over the next 18 to 24 months.”

Paul Aneja - eTrends's curator insight, March 25, 2014 1:05 AM

Report discusses 2 types - disruptors and enablers. Disruptors are areas that can create sustainable positive disruption in IT capabilities, business operations, and sometimes even business models.

 

Enablers are those technologies in which many CIOs have already invested time and effort, but warrant another look because of new developments and new capabilities. Simply put, disruptors are trends that will disrupt current ways of doing things, while enablers will enable ways of doing things differently.

Amazon Web Services Blog: Three New AWS Reference Architectures for E-Commerce

Farid Mheir's curator insight, April 15, 2014 9:56 AM

These reference architectures date back to early 2013 but are still valid. They provide interesting guidance for architects looking to build an eCommerce solution on top of the Amazon Web Service platform.


They also provide very useful insight into eCommerce architecture on its own. Just the fact that Amazon recommends a split between front-end ( the transactional part, where customers shop, with the usage of caching and noSQL database for speed and flexibility), the checkout (which includes all pick/pack activities and the very secure payment and credit card processing) and the marketing (where very dynamic and personalized product recommendations live), should all be reasons for architects to consider a similar partition in their own architectures.

On peut tirer de cet exemple quelques précieux enseignements :1- les technologies développées initialement pour les solutions Internet trouvent maintenant des applications – des use case – dans les entreprises établies;2- il faut avoir des équipes qui sont capables de comprendre et d’adapter ces nouvelles technologies aux réalités d’entreprises existantes, et des systèmes patrimoniaux qui les composent;3- il n’est pas nécessaire d’attendre le remplacement des systèmes patrimoniaux pour innover et présenter des solutions performantes au goût du jour.

As Mary Meeker says in her intro, this presentation probably violates all rules that communication experts drill into our heads, yet it is very effective because

1- the slides are made available for us to review after

2- we can pause and rewind

3- she stresses what's important: the rest we get by looking at the slides


Love it.

Analysis is often where the ball drops as far as competitive intelligence analysts are concerned. Yet this is the only way the team can truly extract insights from the data and the intelligence gathered, and have a chance to play a role in the company’s strategic planning process. You will find below 50 analysis techniques you should master. This is not a complete list, and it should be adapted depending on the strategic needs of your company, as well as the nature of your business.

The cutter consortium provides a very concise definition of what a business capability is and its purpose:

"Business capabilities are the core of the business architecture. A business capability defines “what” a business does. This is different than “how” things are done or where they are done. Business capabilities provide a vocabulary for business leaders to communicate and collaborate with each other and with information technology planning and deployment teams."
