Faster in #DigitalTransformation | @ThingsExpo #AI #IoT #ML #SDN #BigData

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those that are slower. The first two rules prepare for the third, which focuses on action. The fi... (more)
