A New View Into Marketing Technology growthVerse was a great tool to visualize the complex world of #digital #marketing - but unfortunately is not available to general public anymore @accel HT @kaykas | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The Marketing technology category is growing in leaps and bounds. Unfortunately, our most concise view into the category was built in 2011. While companies have been added highlighting new entrants, the Lumascape inspired view has been used primarily to emphasize how complicated and fast growing the space is.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: anything that helps me make sense of the fast moving world of digital marketing is always a good thing. I refer to it here as a snapshot of 2016, wishing that a 2018 version was available...

Intranet usage is below 20%, as opposed to social networks at 60% says 2018 #survey on Employee Adoption of Collaboration Tools @Altimeter #intranet #digitalTransformation

Intranet usage is below 20%, as opposed to social networks at 60% says 2018 #survey on Employee Adoption of Collaboration Tools @Altimeter #intranet #digitalTransformation | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Enterprises use many collaboration tools, from intranets to project management platforms. We surveyed 2000 employees to understand how they use these tools.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: digital transformation in enterprise remains slow to catch on and this survey result shows that Intranet solutions remain under utilized. Having seen many of them, I can understand why: lots of useless, and out of date documents, no one really in charge of maintenance, no search or bad search engines, etc. Key learning from this chart:

- if you update your intranet, build something simple and make sure people use it

- have a corporate social network, it is useful and people use it

Business process automation for human resources using maestro. Maestro is a workflow automation solution for Drupal - automated business processes.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: workflow automation is an essential tool that too few organizations leverage within their digital transformation. Unfortunate because it can provide some very tangible benefits along with cost and error reduction. This paper provides a simple use case - employee onboarding - which unfortunately too many organizations still do manually.

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms highlights the variety of solutions and the complexity of selecting the "best solution" #DXP

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms highlights the variety of solutions and the complexity of selecting the "best solution" #DXP | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Organizations are looking to use DXPs as they move from web-centric to more pervasive, multichannel digital experiences. This Magic Quadrant will help those responsible for a range of customer-, employee- and partner-facing initiatives find the most suitable vendor for their needs.
Gartner defines a digital experience platform (DXP) as an integrated set of technologies, based on a common platform, that provides a broad range of audiences with consistent, secure and personalized access to information and applications across many digital touchpoints. Organizations use DXPs to build, deploy and continually improve websites, portals, mobile and other digital experiences.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: the web has moved from being simply a digital brochure to the source where all other channels derive their content - from print brochures, ads, mobile, emails, etc. In that context it is not a surprise that web solutions (or web content management solutions) have become platforms. So important is this technology trend that retailers now consider their eCommerce solution as the most important tool when looking to replace their POS solution in store. Thus this review from Gartner can help identify that future enterprise leaders may not be IBM, Microsoft and Oracle but Acquia, Adobe or Sitecore. Then again, one should expect these leaders to acquire those DX platforms to keep their position within the organization. Fun times ahead!

I just coded my first AI algorithm, and oh boy, it felt good | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
Speaking the language of deep learning will allow you to have a conversation with the future. And learning to speak it is not as hard as you might think. I’m a prime example: You don’t have to be a programming guru or math wiz to learn to code. You just need to be willing to learn—and to play nice with Python and Numpy.
Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: software is everywhere and more often than not, AI will be everywhere in the future. This articles proves that if you want to do it, programming neural networks is not that big of deal. That being said, from this simple coding experiment to developing a self driving car, there is much to do. But to gain the basic fundamentals that you require to understand the world around you in the coming years, it is well worth the investment, don't you think?

This is not just for technology companies. Traditional media companies like PBS now primarily deliver their content over the Internet: downtime is missed advertising revenue. Universities provide their content to thousands of students online 24/7. Even healthcare companies like Oscar and HealthEquity communicate and engage with their customers almost entirely online.
