Digital transformation: why losing control is the future

Digital transformation: why losing control is the future | Innovation in technology | Scoop.it

Last week I was lucky enough to attend our Digital Transformation: Innovation and Agility Breakfast Briefing, chewing the fat (and some very tasty sausages) with various digital leaders about the actual business implications of digital transformation.

 

The conversation threw a fascinating light on the organisational challenges businesses are facing. While familiar concerns about technology were mentioned, the group was far more focussed on the day-to-day reality of implementation, looking at people and processes.

 

Here I’ve collated some of the major points.

Samsung Unveils Its “Premium Suite Upgrade” For The Galaxy S III | Innovation in technology | Scoop.it

Samsung just unveiled its “Premium Suite Upgrade” for the Galaxy S III, as promised in a teaser last Friday.

iPad Mini Creates More Demand Than It Cannibalizes

iPad Mini Creates More Demand Than It Cannibalizes | Innovation in technology | Scoop.it

Now that the iPad mini has arrived at market and is evidently selling well, there’s no doubt that the original iPad will suffer some cannibalization by its smaller sibling. But, according to a survey from Cowen and Co., it may turn out to be minor, if not outright inconsequential; better to eat your own than have your own eaten by others.

Does the device matter?

Does the device matter? | Innovation in technology | Scoop.it

Innovation is increasingly going to shift from the device to the interaction between multiple devices.

 

Apple is the biggest corporation around. Its fights with Samsung win front-page headlines. Have the device-makers taken over the world, or is this a battle amongst the residual dinosaurs?

'Biomedical Facebook' launches to speed up cancer research

'Biomedical Facebook' launches to speed up cancer research | Innovation in technology | Scoop.it

A new drug discovery website that aims to be a 'Facebook for researchers' has launched with a mission to accelerate cancer drug research.

 

Granatum.org wants to bring together biomedical researchers from pharma, universities and research institutes and make it easier for them to interact and cooperate.

 

The site provides access to the biomedical knowledge and data resources needed to prepare complex experiments to identify novel agents for cancer prevention and to design experimental studies.

 

It hopes that by helping researchers to build and share hypotheses, search databases, and design and execute in-silico experiments, potential chemoprevention drugs can be better screened ahead of any in-vitro and in-vivo testing. This, in turn, should speed up oncology research and even reduce costs.

Why Apple needs to retake the core of the iPhone in 2013

Why Apple needs to retake the core of the iPhone in 2013 | Innovation in technology | Scoop.it
As problems go, Apple’s are the kind most companies would kill for. One of them is particularly fascinating: Having established the most vibrant computing platform of the 21st century, Apple’s own iOS app developers are finding themselves in serious competition with strategic opponents who are duplicating some of the most essential parts of the iPhone. It’s something Apple once tried to prohibit before the federal government forced it to back down.

Here’s How Spotify Scales Up And Stays Agile: It Runs ‘Squads’ Like Lean Startups | TechCrunch

Here’s How Spotify Scales Up And Stays Agile: It Runs ‘Squads’ Like Lean Startups | TechCrunch | Innovation in technology | Scoop.it

What’s the secret to staying fresh, lean and mean when you’re a hot tech company on a fast growth trajectory? A fascinating document brought to our attention today today by Andrew Mager, hacker advocate at Spotify, answers that question in some detail by telling us how the music streaming juggernaut does it: by dividing up its business into small clusters — which it calls ‘squads’ — and running each like a startup in its own right. We’ve embedded the document below.

 

TH: absolutely worth clicking through to take a look at the embedded document. Fascinating to read that each squad has all the skills and tools needed to design, develop, test and release to production. Squads are encouraged to apply lean startup principles  "Think it, build it, ship it, tweak it".
