    Embracing Business Transformation through Digital Technology Should be a ‘No-Brainer’

    Charles Zulanas, Senior Consultant of MSS Business Transformation Advisory, in this final installment of his 3-part series on decision fatigue, shows how organizations can increase efficiency and maximize profitability by embracing business transformation through digital technology.

    Technology does not eliminate the need for people to navigate their internal systems, but instead requires fewer technical and process-oriented roles which can be replaced with big-picture, strategic employees. Time-consuming and laborious processes can often be streamlined by technology and, as stated in previous articles, companies want to make processes as efficient as possible.

    3-D and augmented reality companies have created the best way to try furniture without going through the process of bringing it home then realizing it doesn’t fit the space or match the decor. This does not eliminate the need for sales people, but rather adapts their role into the bigger picture of customer-centric sales. Charles instructs regarding the best ways to gain profits and win customers through making “no-brainer” investments in technology.

    The Evolution of Digital Transformation and the CIO

    Ralph Stauffer, Management Consultant for MSS Business Transformation Advisory, explains the evolution of digital technology throughout the world. The Digital Age is likened to biological evolution as a result of millions of small innovative changes that take place before the next technological era occurs.

    Many innovations, discoveries, and failures were made over the last few decades culminating in the digital age. Stauffer identifies some innovations of the digital age that include blockchain, drones, Internet of Things (IoT), robots, 3D printing, virtual reality, augmented reality, and artificial intelligence. The CIO has to evolve as well, but in a way that responds rapidly to the new environment, determining the correct strategy to pursue and when to pursue it, even if uncertain of the requirements. Stauffer identifies different strategies CIOs can take to attack the digital age with success in their digital transformation efforts.

    How to Keep Your CEO Out of Prison

    The first article in a series entitled Changing the Cybersecurity Culture from Within: Leading from the Bottom-up, Dr. Romeo Farinacci, Cyber Security expert and former Program Director for IT and Cyber Security at Grand Canyon University’s College of Science, Engineering, and Technology (CSET), describes how cybersecurity needs to be adopted by CEOs as a key strategic effort within their company.

    Data is among a company’s most valuable assets. Leadership will be held responsible for data breaches that occur on their watch ($450B in 2016), because of the financial consequences these attacks have on their organization. Consider the number of resignations submitted in the last five years as result of a data breach: Target’s CIO and CEO in 2014, the head of the US government’s personnel office in 2015, and OPM’s CIO in 2016.  Dr. Farinacci talks about how your leadership can stay out of trouble with the law by implementing cybersecurity measures.

    Digital Transformation is Worthless Without This…

    Martin Bonadio, Business Consultant, shares his insight about how businesses think they are set up for their step into the Digital Age, but suddenly find they are behind and transformation is not as smooth as they had hoped.

    Data migration is an often discounted component of a Digital Transformation effort, and many facets are overlooked and oversimplified in the planning process. This perception can lead to scheduling the data migration near the end effort. Unfortunately, doing so can have a long reaching impact from data integrity issues, data security issues, greater resistance from users resulting in slower adoption, blown budgets, and a larger investment in the transformation strategy. Bonadio share his data migration experiences and lends insight in a step-by-step process to help ensure successful migration for your business.

    Ch, Ch, Ch, Chainges – Blockchain…the Next Sliced Bread or the Next Segway?

    Glenn Schulke, Management Consultant for MSS Business Transformation Advisory, addresses the changes in the breakthrough and transformative technology of blockchain. iTunes truly was a disruptive technology that forever changed the music industry. Blockchain itself is not like this, but rather, it is a ground-up foundational, transformative technology that paves the way for future disruptive technologies.

    An example of another foundational technology is the Internet. It started in 1969, as a tool for government and universities to share information via connected computers in a closed environment. Over time the technology evolved into its current open, shared state that is universally accessible and changed the way the world shares and consumes information, but it took nearly 30 years to become the transformative force it is. Schulke explains what blockchain is, its benefits and challenges as well as the future uses of the technology and who is starting to use it.

    A Cyber Security Program is not Insurance…

    Getting pulled over and found without auto insurance can cost you hundreds, but getting caught without cybersecurity can cost you millions. Dr. Romeo Farinacci, Cyber Security expert and former Program Director for IT and Cyber Security at Grand Canyon University’s College of Science, Engineering, and Technology (CSET), talks about the importance of cybersecurity programs for your company. Farinacci makes the point, “Without effective cybersecurity tools and best practices in place (i.e. appropriate patches, periodic scans, or hardened network devices) the likelihood of data loss or intellectual property leaks as result of hacks, ransomware, viruses, or simple human errors in data management increases substantially, thereby reducing an organization’s profitability, market value, trustworthiness, and ability to be competitive.” He follows up by talking about the ROI on these types of programs and the savings down the road of programs like these. This article has been referenced by VP’s that needed evidence to support cybersecurity investments for their companies and it may prove worthwhile for you, too.
