Our Connected World: No. 4 - On Human Connections

It’s only been 18 months - but we’ve all forgotten how to act in 3D.

I am writing this from my gate at ATL, on my way back from a customer meeting. Juggling that fine line between where the mask fogs my glasses but it’s low enough on my nose that I can see most of what I’m typing.

I spent most of yesterday with a customer, in the flesh. It was awesome. In that 8 hours of in-person, real, connected human interaction, I was struck by how awkward everything was. Nobody knew how to act. In the reception area we had to raise our voices to be heard through the masks and the bullet proof glass. There were multiple attempts at temperature checks, we had to be careful to use the clean pens on the right, not the dirty ones on the left. Did anyone really know what part of the office and conference rooms required masks and which were ok to show our ugly mugs?

Our Connected World: No. 2 - On the Ownership of Your Cloud Data

Two years ago in London, I had an enlightening conversation with a solution architect who worked for one of the major cloud vendors. Let’s call him Simon. Simon and I were talking about the insane proliferation of IoT vendors - a number that has exploded to more than 1,200 according to research firm IoT Analytics (June 2021). In a similar report at the end of 2019, IoT Analytics emphasized that the number of vendors in the IoT industry is not consolidating - rather, it’s expanding.

The expansion is clearly due to all the hot air in the IoT segment. Lots of hot air.

Our Connected World: No. 1 - Digital Transformation for Connected Product Businesses

Wouldn’t life be easier if business transformations just happened with the wave of a magic wand?

Unfortunately, Digital Transformation is much more complicated than a board mandate, giving someone a trendy title, or creating an intra-organizational task force. And I have yet to meet a real wizard that can magically transform any product into its digital equivalent.

DeviceOps: The Foundation of your Digital Transformation Journey

It seems cliche, but it’s true, that a journey to the mountain’s summit begins with a first step at its base. Organizations that aspire for digital and business transformation must commit to taking those first and foundational steps to achieve their “summit” goals.

As with any organizational transformation - the changes cannot be implemented by a single person or operational unit. There may be a Chief Digital Transformation Officer in your organization, but her job is setting the strategy and coaching the many teams necessary to achieve the organization’s goals. That’s why Digital Transformation is more often referred to as a process - not a technology. It’s also a perpetual journey, not a final destination.

Introducing CRM for Machines: A Connected Devices Platform Service

Only 25 years ago, most businesses relied on spreadsheets (or a rolodex) for the entire sales process. From key contacts, to prospects, deal statuses, and more - we stored everything in these tools. Some larger companies used Siebel or another similar legacy CRM vendor. However, these tools were only available to the few large companies that could afford it.
