Wake Up! (Second Season)

Posted by Alberto Gómez Aparicio in Enterprise, Technology, Transformation, Wake Up

Last year, from NTT Data we launched Wake Up, what today is the first season of a series that describes a vision to think about what the close future could be thanks to technology. In last year’s season, the main character wakes up after a ten year coma and finds a world that has changed dramatically compared to the one he remembers. This month we are sharing the second season where this main character, once adapted to this new reality, uses in his professional life what he has learned. This…read more

When it seemed like this monthly post would only have a couple of links, many interesting posts poped out in my Feedly and started sharing compulsively in the last days. Many things are happening in my life compulsively in lately. I anticipate a post about some news in the coming days. In the meantime, this is this month’s links summary: The Importance Of Having A Purpose In Digital Transformation And Innovation To be placed in the wall and to read it every day: Technology isn’t the answer. It’s an essential…read more

Wake Up!

Posted by Alberto Gómez Aparicio in Enterprise, Technology, Transformation, Wake Up

Society is changing at light speed. A quite relevant part of those changes are due to the evolution of technologies that are constantly transforming the way we do things and creating new opportunities to perform activities that not that long ago were almost impossible to perform. To illustrate these changes, we at NTT Data have created a series of videos under the name Wake Up that, through the eyes of a character that wakes up after a ten years coma, presents the technological trends we are facing. As an introduction,…read more

Links November 2017

Posted by Alberto Gómez Aparicio in Artificial Intelligence, Enterprise, Innovation, Links, Medicine, Privacy, Robotics, Transformation, Transportation

Large links harvest this month, both in number and in topics. More than the last ones. One of the largest, in fact. And I honestly have no clue on the reason. A good number of the links send us to texts worth a slow and deep reading. Some of these texts are worth an individual post with a deeper analysis, but I’m not sure to have the time to write them: These are the links: Your Company Doesn’t Need a Digital Strategy Technology doesn’t provide value to a business. It…read more

Still working in a department?

Posted by Alberto Gómez Aparicio in Enterprise, Transformation

Long time ago I started to think about not working at a department anymore. “Department” sounds like division, like isolated compartment, like “this is not in my job description”, like “not my business”, like organizations that place their internal political fights ahead of customers needs and interests and of market reality. “Department” sounds like slow decisions, like “don’t step in my garden”, like bureaucracy, like hierarchy, like privileges, like colliding objectives. Today’s organizations can not afford having departments. Organizations that want to survive until tomorrow need to be agile, to…read more

A good reason NOT to implement an internal Corporate Social Network

Posted by Alberto Gómez Aparicio in Communication, Enterprise, Social networks

Yes, there is a solid and consistent reason for not implementing an internal Corporate Social Network (ICSN) and it is very simple: An ICSN won’t solve the communication problems in your organization. Period. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. If in your company communication flows poorly and badly, a ICSN is not going to fix it. If the communication is one-way and “those at the top” are not interested in what “those at the bottom” think, a ICSN is not going to convince them otherwise. If there is no transparency and the information reaches the people by rumors or external sources rather than…read more

Your company should not need a blog

Posted by Alberto Gómez Aparicio in Blogs, Enterprise, Internet

Or said as a question: why do companies need to have a blog? Or put another way: what does a blog provide to a company that this company may not get from their own website? Because the first thing we read when it comes to blogs is on the choice of the tool: Blogger, Posterous, Tumblr,… But what do they offer to us? Immediacy, flexibility, ease of publication, of administration? Because if this is about having a communication channel, commenting about matters that can be interesting to customers (and not customers), fostering and participating in “the conversation”, forming part of the…read more

It is not “them” it is “you”

Posted by Alberto Gómez Aparicio in Enterprise, Transformation

We have the funny habit of always looking for third-party responsibilities. I do not know if it is something cultural or universal, but the truth is that seeing someone like the president of Toyota publicly pronouncing the mea culpa is something that is quite unusual. We talk about what “companies” do, say or are … But what role do we play in that game? If the “companies” do not listen to customers, at 45 you are considered old, pay less salary if you are female, do not respect the rights of workers, ……read more

Seth’s Blog: Put a name on it

Posted by Alberto Gómez Aparicio in Enterprise, Quotes, Transparency

Organizations thrive on their ability to allow individuals to remain faceless. It permits them to act badly, not in the interest of their customers. Via sethgodin.typepad.com It can not be said better or clearer. The anonymity of the bureaucracy allows us to write rules that nobody would dare explain to a customer face to face. Transparency is the antidote.
