The Digital Health 150 is CB Insights' annual ranking of the 150 most promising digital health startups in the world.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: one key industry where digital transformation can have the most profound impact should be healthcare. This list from CBinsight highlights one crucial aspect: lots of innovation on "health" (research, diagnostics, ...), but little innovation on "care". Nevertheless a useful reference to see where innovation should come from in the coming years.

From Bricks to Clicks, State of Mobility in Retail 2021 Report provides insights into #eCommerce customer behaviour changes during #covid via @JdeMontreal

From Bricks to Clicks, State of Mobility in Retail 2021 Report provides insights into #eCommerce customer behaviour changes during #covid via @JdeMontreal | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

L’enquête de la firme SOTI révèle que la Covid-19 a radicalement changé les attentes des consommateurs à l’égard des détaillants et du commerce en ligne. Selon leur étude (From Bricks to Clicks, State of Mobility in Retail 2021 Report) réalisée à l’échelle du globe, les consommateurs ne cliquent pas sur «acheter» si les retours ne sont pas faciles, si l'expédition et la livraison ne sont pas traçables, par contre la sécurité des données ne semble pas être une priorité absolue.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: (in french) a summary of key conclusions and stats from a recent report on consumer behaviour regarding eCommerce during covid shutdown. Even though we've flocked to eCommerce the experience remains plagued with issues that must be addressed in the coming years.

Each of these distinct attacks had two things in common: China and Super Micro Computer Inc., a computer hardware maker in San Jose, California. They shared one other trait; U.S. spymasters discovered the manipulations but kept them largely secret as they tried to counter each one and learn more about China’s capabilities.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: fascinating stories of espionnage using modified hardware by China. Everyone knows China, Russia, USA, and others do it. Just painful to see it in writing. A consequence of global supply chains (read the book "the world is flat" to understand why this is so) and a strong business case to bring back some of the manufacturing in our country even if it makes some devices more expensive. Considering that we are carry with us smart phones and that they are all made in China, this is going to be tough. This article is also a great case for strong data encryption for all data at rest and in flight.

The Forrester Wave B2B Commerce Suites, Q2 2020

The Forrester Wave B2B Commerce Suites, Q2 2020 | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Key Takeaways: Forrester's research uncovered a market in which Adobe and Salesforce are Leaders; commercetools, Oracle, Intershop Communications, Insite, BigCommerce, SAP, and Sana Commerce are Strong Performers; and Apttus, Elastic Path Software, Unilog Content Solutions, and Episerver are Contenders.

Integration Capability And Business User Experience Are Key Differentiators: As monolithic technology becomes outdated and less effective, the providers that lead the pack demonstrate deep, prebuilt integrations and strong business user tooling. Vendors that deliver this value position themselves to successfully help their clients grow revenue, deepen customer loyalty, and expand into new markets.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: bear in mind that this list is pre-covid. But with so many retailers looking for solutions I felt this list to be useful. As with all WAVEs, have a big grain of salt and use the reviews , market positioning, etc. to prepare your own evaluations. And don'T discard solutions because they are not on the list. This is for B2B.

Key Takeaways: Forrester's research uncovered a market in which Adobe, Salesforce, and commercetools are Leaders; SAP, BigCommerce, Kibo Commerce, and Oracle are Strong Performers; Episerver and Elastic Path Software are Contenders; and Sitecore is a Challenger.

Business User Experience Drives Key Differentiators

 

As monolithic technology becomes outdated and less appealing to merchants, the providers that lead the pack will demonstrate deep integrations with both owned and competitive solutions, as well as business user tooling that unifies controls across those solutions and streamlines workflows. Vendors that deliver this value position themselves to successfully help their clients grow revenue, deepen customer loyalty, and expand into new markets.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: bear in mind that this list is pre-covid. But with so many retailers looking for solutions I felt this list to be useful. As with all WAVEs, have a big grain of salt and use the reviews , market positioning, etc. to prepare your own evaluations. And don'T discard solutions because they are not on the list. This is for B2C.

The Rise of the CTO - 2021 IBM CEO study highlights the importance of #technology for CEOs - trend or #tunnelVision from @IBM? Thanks to @SeanMoffitt @FutureproofingN | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

We surveyed more than 3,000 CEOs around the world to learn how they are positioning their organizations for success after COVID-19. Five key factors set outperforming CEOs apart.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: technology is high on CEO radar of priorities as digital transformations shifts from front-office (web, social, search, all areas of the marketing CMO) to the back office (manufacturing, security, IOT, cloud, AI). CIOs play a role but many times they can't cut it so the CTO comes in. Could be a fundamental trend, or simply tunnel vision (it is an IBM survey after all ;-). Thanks to Sean Moffitt - Future Proofing Next guru! Many more insights in the full report.

#digital is 50 years old: so what is next in #eCommerce and other areas? 134 fact-based data-full slides from @benedictevans provide insights into what the future may hold #mustRead | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Covid brought shock and a lot of broken habits to tech, but mostly, it accelerates everything that was already changing. 20 trillion dollars of retail, brands, TV and advertising is being overturned, and software is remaking everything from cars to pharma. Meanwhile, China has more smartphone users than Europe and the USA combined, and India is close behind - technology and innovation will be much more widely spread. For that and lots of other reason, tech is becoming a regulated industry, but if we step over the slogans, what does that actually mean? Tech is entering its second 50 years.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: a great new overview of the digital transformation (my words), with fact-based data-full slides. I especially like everything about eCommerce in there which will become reference for me in coming months. I extracted just one striking illustration of the wide variation of eCommerce penetration depending on industry. This chart highlights how different the digital transformation strategies must be in the toys&games industry vs the grocery industry. Love it. Many more in the full presentation.

#Hardware is Hard - Why it costs millions and years to develop computer systems | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

A hardware company could spend $3 million to launch their first device. A software company could get to revenue faster and still have a $1 million to market a product with recurring revenue.

WHY IT MATTERS: a short post that gives an overview of cost and delays when building a hardware product. In my experience, these numbers are realistic but can, of course, be much much bigger... ;-)

System Creates the Illusion of an Ideal AI Chip and offers an alternative to @Cerebras wafer-scale integration - more #AI good news via @IEEESpectrum

System Creates the Illusion of an Ideal AI Chip and offers an alternative to @Cerebras wafer-scale integration - more #AI good news via @IEEESpectrum | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Called Illusion, it uses processors built with resistive RAM memory in a 3D stack built above the silicon logic, so it costs little energy or time to fetch data. By itself, even this isn’t enough, because neural networks are increasingly too large to fit in one chip. So the scheme also requires multiple such hybrid processors and an algorithm that both intelligently slices up the network among the processors and also knows when to rapidly turn processors off when they’re idle.

Farid Mheirs insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: not sure how practical this system is but sure seems easier to manufacture than Cerebras wafer-scale solution. No matter what architecture wins, we can see that there will be computer designs that will maximize neural net with billions of nodes (GPT3 has 175B) training.
