Blockchain – The Evolution Of Trust

July 31, 2018

Hindsight is easy, foresight is almost impossible. The genesis of the internet was a tiny ripple in the fabric of information technology. What started as a few connected nodes strategically placed in the halls of learning and academia, evolved into the world wide web. Arguably the most significant creation since the printing press (perhaps more influential than the printing press when examined through the metric of collective utility) At the time of inception there was no way of knowing that the tiny web of connected computers would turn into the world wide web. The internet matured, and it connected us…

How To Be A Technologist – 7 Tips

June 27, 2018

Only Technologists Will Survive The Digital Transformation And Continue Leading. Wait….What? You heard me, In today’s business ecosystem its possible to be technology adverse, but just barely, and not for much longer. The reality is this: The sun is setting on our current business paradigm and as we watch it slip quietly into obscurity, we eagerly wait in the early morning darkness, anticipating the dawn of a new business paradigm. We are equal parts excited and terrified of what this new world will look like. We can only speculate on appearance. The business landscape of tomorrow will require technologists who…

Developer Dialogue.

June 22, 2018

I work in marketing but I am also a citizen developer. I work in marketing but I am also a citizen developer. I was recently tasked with building a multi platform application for internal use. In the process of building the app I had the fortune of working with one of our developers; Bipush Osti, a senior developer at Standard Harvest and low-code specialist. The following is a conversation that took place between the two of us during a impromptu, low-code coaching session. “Bipush, how long have you been developing with our [no code] platform?” I asked casually after he…

Games We Play.

June 14, 2018

A look at digital transformation through the eyes of a game theory. There are two kinds of games. An infinite game and a finite game. A finite game has fixed rules and the players are constant. The game has a very clear start and ending point. Most of the games we play are finite. Soccer, baseball, ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ and board games are finite. These games promote short-term thinking. If you are Playing a finite game you are playing a game that satisfies your interests. An infinite game, on the other hand, is much different. In an infinite game, the…

Every Company Is A Software Company

June 6, 2018

What would your company be like, if it was originally a software company? How would the way you deliver your product or service be different? How would you interact with your customers? How would you infuse your offering with software to enhance the customer experience? This is a good exercise to understand the potential of digital transformation in  your organization. Here are some examples of software companies that have taken over entire industries. Amazon took over books Netflix took over movies Spotify took over music Skype & Whatsapp took over telecommunications Uber took over taxis Airbnb took over hotels Tesla took…

Digital Transformation Part 2 of 2

June 1, 2018

Last week I blogged about what a digital transformation is NOT. I want to touch on this concept again, just for a minute, because there is a lot of misleading information out there on the topic of digital transformation. Digital Transformation is not about IT or even technology. It is not about an app or the cloud, or a whole suite of apps on the cloud. Digital, if you remember from my previous blog, in this context is used as a synonym  to express the increasingly rapid pace of change to society brought on by the ubiquitous adoption of technology,…

Digital Transformation Part 1 of 2

May 25, 2018

How do you easily define an idea so abstract, it requires a Ted Talk to explain it. Here is a link to a very ‘Teddy’ Talk on the subject. What Does It Even Mean? Digital Transformation, It’s like saying you work in the in the ‘monetary acquisition” industry. The words make sense but put them together in a sentance? Yea, Good luck with that. I mean, what the hell does it even mean? The whole concept is fascinating to me. If you don’t know what a digital transformation is, read on. You need to know what it is, so you can…

We wanted a platform with people behind the company, from the CEO down to the janitor, that understood that a platform is a platform, but on the business side, that’s where the difference is. “We wanted…

Digital Burgers, Analog Minds.

May 10, 2018

I went to Mcdonalds (Don’t judge) last night with my older brother. He is 12 years my senior and just a little bit of a technophobe. The whole concept of what Standard Harvest does is  completely foreign to him. McDonald’s was packed. You’d think they had the best burgers in the world! What else explains why they are always so busy? “Look,” I said, pointing to a row of kiosks, each one displaying a sideways mounted touchscreen monitor. “Let’s just use those.” He agreed and the line was avoided, the food delivered, unpackaged and rammed into our faces.  The familiar shame associated with…

Airplane Pilots and Developers

May 1, 2018

A study was done on two groups of people. Group 1: Veteran airplane pilots.  Group2: Non-pilots. They were each given a test: Who can read an airplane instrument panel the best where speed and accuracy are concerned. The focus was on the ‘six-pack,’ the six most important gauges in an airplane.   Veteran pilots spend thousands of hours interacting with this cluster. They hone their skills in serious ways. It can be a matter of life or death. And the non-pilots? Well, they were given ONLY two hours of class study and a heartfelt good luck! (I’m not sure about…
