Gartner Magic Quadrant for #Cloud #ERP for Product-Centric Enterprises highlights an important fact: as technology matures the solutions tend to specialize per industry - when will this happen with... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The ERP for product-centric enterprises market is accelerating its transition to cloud deployment models. ERP application leaders should use this Magic Quadrant to evaluate cloud ERP application suites as part of a composable ERP strategy.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: interesting to see that software solutions that reach maturity - such as ERPs - have a tendency to specialize. This quadrant highlights leaders in a specific market (product centric enterprises). I wonder when we will start to see the same with eCommerce... Not that specialized solutions don't exist but that the industry remains so immature that companies are in their first or second versions of eCommerce and thus gravitate to generalist solutions like shopify, magento, etc.

Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure and Platform Services: 3 big ones - Google, Microsoft, Amazon - compete with varying tactics as #cloudComputing tech & services mature and adoption skyrocket... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Enterprises have significantly accelerated their use of public CIPS providers as they seek to scale and become more agile in the postpandemic period. Major differences between the providers warrant careful consideration as I&O leaders make strategic cloud provider selections.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: 3 major players in cloud computing are battling it out on sales rather than technology as the platforms mature and the enterprise adoption skyrockets. Gartner quadrant provides overview of the major players. Google is immature, AWS has aggressive sales tactics and Azure offering is confusing.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this short example shows how far we've come with serverless and event-drive architectures in the cloud, enabling complex processing as a pipeline of small operations. For old dudes like me this is a throwback to the command line pipelines we used to make in Un*x way back when. It makes for very resilient solutions, once you debug the flow. Should be used more often.

The Cloud Paradox: #cloudComputing flexibility is a tax that enables #startups to grow fast and agile, but when they become large enough, that same "tax" amputates *billions* in market value #mustRead

The Cloud Paradox: #cloudComputing flexibility is a tax that enables #startups to grow fast and agile, but when they become large enough, that same "tax" amputates *billions* in market value #mustRead | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

There is no doubt that the cloud is one of the most significant platform shifts in the history of computing. Now, there is a growing awareness of the long-term cost implications of cloud. As the cost of cloud starts to contribute significantly to the total cost of revenue (COR) or cost of goods sold (COGS), some companies have taken the dramatic step of “repatriating” the majority of workloads (as in the example of Dropbox) or in other cases adopting a hybrid approach (as with CrowdStrike and Zscaler). Those who have done this have reported significant cost savings: In 2017, Dropbox detailed in its S-1 a whopping $75M in cumulative savings over the two years prior to IPO due to their infrastructure optimization overhaul, the majority of which entailed repatriating workloads from public cloud.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this article explores the cost of cloud computing for large SaaS companies that rely on cloud computing to run and operate their business. The basic argument is that cloud computing is amputating Billions from the market value of those large organizations. It should be read by every software engineer in every corporation and the proposed solutions implemented rapidly.

 

This statement summarizes the post best: "For a new startup or a new project, the cloud is the obvious choice. And it is certainly worth paying even a moderate “flexibility tax” for the nimbleness the cloud provides. The problem is, for large companies — including startups as they reach scale — that tax equates to hundreds of billions of dollars of equity value in many cases… and is levied well after the companies have already, deeply committed themselves to the cloud (and are often too entrenched to extricate themselves)."

Now Google also provides teachers with tools to automatically check what is unique and what is not in automated fashion. Why is this not included in WORD or Google DOCS to automatically verify what is truly unique in documents you receive, say from consultants like me? Oh no, many would find this not a good idea I'm sure... ;-)

Amazed the #CloudComputing remains a question on some #CIOs mind - maybe this @McKinsey analysis of the trillion-dollar opportunity will convince the most reluctant | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Companies should explore seven specific drivers to assess where the value lies in cloud. As companies assess the opportunities enabled by cloud, a detailed review of the sources of value can pinpoint where they need to focus their attention, people, and resources. Across the three dimensions, seven drivers of value can collectively generate more than $1 trillion in value.

WHY IT MATTERS: the opportunity of cloud computing remains whole as per this analysis from McKinsey. One chart of the benefits should convince the most reluctant CIOs that cloud is a good thing.

This post summarizes what I think about when I refer to #digitalTransformation: What comes after smartphones? via @BenedictEvans | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

There’s an old saying that the first fifty years of the car industry were about creating car companies and working out what cars should look like, and the second fifty years were about what happened once everyone had a car - they were about McDonalds and Walmart, suburbs and the remaking of the world around the car, for good and of course bad. The innovation in cars became everything around the car. One could suggest the same today about smartphones - now the innovation comes from everything else that happens around them.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this post is a bit theoretical for someone not bathing in digital transformation all day as I do (mostly). It explores what could come next but more importantly stresses an important fact: we now have a new platform - the mobile phone - in our pockets that has the potential to transform our world. We have started to see this with eCommerce - physical retail stores become irrelevant and we can price compare from anywhere - but we have yet to see the real impact of eCommerce+mobile+cloud+5G. THIS is what I think about most days...

Large #digital #technology projects often bust their budget by 200% but #agile #cloud #servicesArchitecture can help keep things on track says @McKinsey #makesSense

Large #digital #technology projects often bust their budget by 200% but #agile #cloud #servicesArchitecture can help keep things on track says @McKinsey #makesSense | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

However, an unwillingness to admit—or the inability to realize—that the issues are more complex and require more work than anticipated means that problems continue and often get worse. The research is quite clear on this point. Early cost and schedule overruns end up, on average, much worse in most programs, often costing twice as much as anticipated—and that’s despite the interventions of program leaders (see Exhibit 2 for an example analysis).

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this post highlights 6 key elements of successful technology projects. They include agile, cloud and service architecture. No surprise. What is interesting is that they can even prevent projects from busting their budget by 200%, which seems to be the "track record of comparable programs" according to McKinsey... #sad

What is good retention metric numbers? A panel of experts provides their value from Lenny's Newsletter @lennysan via @sebprovencher | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

If you take nothing else away from this post, it should be that retention matters. A lot. No other metric is as singularly telling of whether your business will thrive or die. And so, the better you understand what good retention looks like for your business, the better shot you have at the former. We hope this research proves useful to you whether you’re building, investing, or just curious.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: with every product moving to a SaaS, pay as you go, model, retention has become a key metric to consider. This post delivers insights into retention metrics for GOOD and GREAT retention numbers. I'd love to see similar posts on email open rates, ecommerce conversion, app usage, etc.

Each year, we identify the top trends in SaaS spend and usage. This report takes a look at 2018 data from nearly a thousand companies and trends for 2019.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this report on the use of software as a service in companies - think products like salesforce.com, office365, mailchimp and others. The data is clear: SaaS solutions are popular and no one seems to be in charge. This will have serious implications in terms of accountability, security, privacy, regulation compliance, economies of scale, etc. Who will manage that?

Separating the Clowns from the Clouds: IBM+Oracle not in same league as Google+Amazon+Microsoft on #CloudCOmputing 

Separating the Clowns from the Clouds: IBM+Oracle not in same league as Google+Amazon+Microsoft on #CloudCOmputing  | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

As I keep repeating, CAPEX is both a prerequisite to play in the big boy cloud and confirmation of customer success. Both IBM and Oracle are tens of billions of dollars in cloud infrastructure CAPEX behind Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. Oracle’s spending has at least ticked up, but their spending is not enough to keep pace, much less to have any hope of catching up to the infrastructure of the big three.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: there are only 3 players in cloud computing market: Google, Amazon, microsoft. Sorry IBM & Oracle just don't make the cut. Here is a great analysis of why this is so.

Moving large #datasets - Exabyte-Scale - to #AWS requires physical trucks & hard drives

Moving large #datasets - Exabyte-Scale - to #AWS requires physical trucks & hard drives | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

AWS Snowmobile is an exabyte-scale data transfer service used to move extremely large amounts of data to AWS. You can transfer up to 100PB per Snowmobile, a 45-foot long ruggedized shipping container, pulled by a semi-trailer truck. Snowmobile makes it easy to move massive volumes of data to the cloud, including video libraries, image repositories, or even a complete data center migration. Transferring data with Snowmobile is secure, fast and cost effective.

Farid Mheir's insight:

Moving large amounts of data to the cloud - petabytes and exabytes - would take years to do if transferred using networks and the Internet. Amazon provides its customers with dedicated and secure hard drives - they call snowballs - and truck - they call snowmobiles - to move the data from one data center to the next.

 

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

There are limits to our network infrastructures and physical solutions often are required to migrate data to the cloud or digitize products. For example scanning paper files or converting books to digital ones often require specialized equipments in order to perform the work rapidly and cost effectively. Google had patented a book scanning equipment in order to create its Google books project in the past. I assume this same kind of innovation will start to happen in other fields as well.
