Stephen Chilton Last week I wrote that I believe enterprise mobility will transform Healthcare more than just about any industry outside of media.  Healthcare requires access to a lot of data, the collection of a lot of data and collaboration with many others in mobile environments.  This traditional paper intensive industry is already rapidly digitizing, and now in the process of mobilizing.  However, some of the biggest challenges are figuring out how to mobilize large numbers of back-end systems and processes cost effectively. Stephen Chilton, Director of IT for the University Hospital Birmingham (UHB) in the UK faced these challenges.   I recorded a podcast with him last year that you can listen to here.  He researched how he could use cost effective mobile solutions to assist doctors, nurses, clinical staff and executives in their every day routine jobs that di...

Digital Transformations - The Crossroads Model: Winning with Code Halos

Books and Reviews Three of my colleagues here at Cognizant, Malcolm Frank, Paul Roehrig and Ben Pring, are writing a new book on the subjects of SMAC (social, mobile, analytics and cloud), digital and business transformations, and successful strategies for navigating through them.  The concepts in this book resonate with me.  I see enterprise mobility and B2C mobile app strategies as key components.  In this article, we get a sneak preview from the book.   Several weeks ago we outlined the concept  of “Code Halos™” – aka our digital fingerprint – and discussed how   “personal” Code Halos are migrating into enterprise computing. We also analyzed the areas in which “organizational” Code Halos are changing what businesses do and how they do it. In this post we advocate how Code Halos create a repeatable pattern of disruption across a wide range of industries; by studyi... (more)

Gartner Reveals Predictions and the Tsunami of Digital Transformation

This week at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2013, Gartner unveiled their top predictions for 2014 and beyond.  Here they are: Digital Industrial Revolution (3D printing and its impact on manufacturing and IP) Digital Business (social, mobile, analytics, cloud, code halos and their impact)  Smart Machines (self-learning machines and artificial intelligence) The Internet of Things (network centric operations, situational awareness, etc.) These predictions align closely with what I have been writing about and teaching for the past 12 months. However, I have not covered the "Digital Industrial Revolution" in the context of 3D printing.  I will have to start paying more attention to that area.  I blame some of my inattention on those that came up with the term "3D Printing."
