I usually keep this blog “industry agnostic,” talking about technology in a manner that is somewhat indifferent to the different industries impacted by technology. I’ll give examples from various types of industry because I find that technology is making a significant impact on all businesses. You’ve heard this story before, people often quote the historical stories about Blockbuster and Netflix, Kodak and the digital camera, and Uber and the taxi industry.

This week however, I’m at ShopTalk 2019. This is a show that brings together the entire retail ecosystem and its community of innovators. Since all of us interact with retailers, at least at a personal level, I wanted to share some of the things I saw this week as they relate to the advance of technology in retail.

Enterprises are keeping more and more data on premises. This shift, which involves on-premises infrastructure and often some form of private clouds, is hard to deny.

In a survey last year of more than 400 enterprises in the United States, market research firm IDG found IT and general management expecting on average to keep 52% of data on premises, up from 48%. Related surveys of European and Asian businesses showed even greater increases in the number of respondents expecting to keep more than half of their data on premises.

There’s a business analyst/architect group, a process innovation group, a design thinking group, a technology group and more. Not all of these groups are internal. Some of them are external. Tech vendors try to push new technologies. Management consultants try to push their new or upgraded service. Partner firms want to prove a point. More complexity.

Groups are likely global. Even your own colleagues are located across multiple offices in multiple countries. Even more complexity. The group expected to do a particular activity is actually a firm your vendor recently acquired. This firm won’t easily work with your vendor’s other groups. Sure, the firm was acquired to fill a missing or complementary capability, but probably also to elevate your level of perception about the vendor.

IDG Contributor Network: The next frontier of AI in healthcare

A recent OptumIQ annual survey of major healthcare organizations on AI in Healthcare shows an average of $32.4M investment per organization over the next 5 years. 91% of the 500 healthcare leaders surveyed are confident they will see an ROI on AI – in the next 4 years for hospital executives, and in 3 years or less for 38% of employers and 20% of health plan executives. 75% of those surveyed are either actively implementing or planning to execute an AI strategy.

In planning an AI strategy, It would help to understand how AI may be added into the current IT mix. AI may be included in an existing application or integrated with applications in a workflow. Or in the lesser-known, process-centric approach, AI may encapsulate the workflow, which arguably would take us to the next frontier.

In the Star Trek universe, a master systems display (MSD) is the screen that appears behind Worf in “The Next Generation,” in the table in main engineering where Geordi La Forge hangs out, and in many other places in the ship. It also appears in other series and movies. (For instance, Kirk and Spock go over the damages to the ship after Khan attacks the Enterprise in the second, and best, movie.) It’s conveniently used as a device where characters would gather around and discuss how to get the Enterprise out of a pickle.

In my home office, I have a poster of the ship that represents a master systems display screen (it would be cool if it were interactive) and as I watch it daily, it got me thinking. You see, aside from being used as a plot device, the MSD is a representation of the ship’s CMDB.
