Farid Mheirs insight:

Ging digital means you trust computer systems with more and more private and confidential information, Again here, one of the reasons why passwords fail. We must go beyond the password and encourage solution providers to build more advanced and seamless protection systems. Here, evidence shows that even the most complex passwords will fail when hackers can simply ask for them to be reset using publicly available information on Facebook and other websites.

Farid Mheirs insight:

What happens when corporations do not make the digital transformation fast enough and wait until the market has completely shifted to catch-up: shareholders have to pay the price, or the company goes bankrupt. Was the same for Netflix vs Blockbuster. Expect more of the same in the future.  Amazon vs ? Who will it be?....

Google is encroaching on Microsoft's traditional enterprise customers. Should the software giant be worried?
Farid Mheirs insight:

Farid Mheirs insight:

Internet is a new "property" that must be anaged like any other corporate asset. In particular domain names, which often are assigned to individual users and are not renewed in time. Domains must also be managed, so that the naming conventions are appropriate and easilly tracked and crawled. Along with it, analytics should be created to report on usage and traffic. I've seen corporations plan marketing launches without proper domain names, only to find the URL is not available.... after thousands of leaflets had been printed!

GroceryServer, ZipList put the web to work clipping coupons

GroceryServer, ZipList put the web to work clipping coupons | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it
GroceryServer and ZipList have bridged the gap between the store circular and the web.
Farid Mheirs insight:

hyper localization has been the buzzword for a while with the likes of foursquare. With limited benefits for users to date. Will grocery coupons and specials be the killer app, maybe not (unless coupons become personalized and perceived $$ value is substantial), but it is one step in the right direction.

Farid Mheirs insight:

Online eCommerce Achille's heal is delivery. It has been for a long time and now a lot is being done to try and address it. Pick-up, as opposed to home delivery, is one option being seriously considered. In its many forms: pick-up lockers, speedy drive-thrus (Leclerc Drive in France), etc. And yes, they all attack the established delivery services: FedEx, UPS, USPS, etc.
