In Paris last week at Enterprise 2.0 SUMMIT 2015, it was shortly after the CIO of one of the world's largest organizations began walking through the progress of social business within her organization, that the realization hit: The leading edge companies are not really talking about adoption any more, that part is largely done, though plenty of work certainly remains. Instead, the half dozen case studies from some of the largest firms in the world made it clear that leading organizations are now making advanced use of social tools in the way that they work. The CIO in this case was Laurie Miller, of the $11.8B material sciences division of Bayer, whose impassioned explanation of how they dealt with the complexity of modern enterprise collaboration within a large organization was a highlight of the event.Large Enterprise Results with Social: Learning, 'Good' Practices, Goals The focus on making social collaboration a success over the last … [Read more...] about In Europe’s biggest firms, social business is all grown up
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has often been popularly envisaged in super-smart humanoid robot form. In fact, it's more commonly implemented as behind-the-scenes algorithms that can process 'big' data to accomplish a range of relatively mundane tasks far more efficiently than humans can. Few of us, yet, interact with bipedal robots or take a ride in a driverless car, but our daily lives are increasingly affected by AI systems that can recognise speech or images, or analyse patterns of online behaviour (to detect credit card fraud or serve up appropriate adverts, for example). Little wonder that the recent boom in this kind of AI is being spearheaded by internet giants like Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, Baidu and others, and that there is currently a resurgence of startup activity in the sector: Nor is it any surprise to find AI and automation featuring prominently on analyst firm Gartner's … [Read more...] about Artificial intelligence in business: The state of play and future prospects
The king is dead; long live the king. The king of spam, that is: Sanford Wallace, once proud to be known both as the "King of Spam" and "Spamford" for his notorious and successful venture in sending unsolicited junk email, is back in business. Early last year, Wallace abdicated his throne after antispam advocacy groups and corporate lawsuits virtually forced him from the Net. The seat of his reign, the reviled CyberPromotions, expired under the weight of more than $3 million in debt, most of it the result of legal settlements. In defeat, Wallace embraced his foes, assumed the moniker "antiSpamford," and all but disappeared from the online medium. But after a year of lying low, the lure of bulk email has brought Wallace back. This time, he claims, he's cleaned up his act. "I'm not spamming again," Wallace said in an interview with CNET News.com. "I am the most antispam person alive because of the trouble my old company got into." CyberPromotions was processing 30 million pieces of … [Read more...] about Is the king of spam back in business?
Above: Cisco CEO John Chambers At Gartner Symposium this morning, Cisco CEO John Chambers told an audience of IT professionals that if IT does its job right, the fabric of IT will be deeply embedded in the fabric of every business process over the next few years; IT and business groups will work together seamlessly. To do this, though, the IT community will need to stop acting like vendors and instead focus on helping people solve problems. Chambers warned that the chance of doing this right is only 50/50. Interviewed by Gartner Fellow Richard Hunter and distinguished analyst David Willis, Chambers said that "the Internet of everything"—including millions of "things" as well as traditional websites, PCs, servers, and smart devices—will become the platform of the future. On the first point, he said that we are rapidly approaching an "inflection point" in the industry where we'll need IT leaders who are experts in business first and IT second. IT needs to become a … [Read more...] about Cisco CEO at Gartner 2012: Embedding IT in Business Process
