Integration of data from the desktop (office, enterprise, school) to mobile device. Access anytime, anywhere is what increases utility of the mobile applications.

  • IT Doesn’t Matter • Nicolas Carr compares IT to previous tech revolutions such as railroads and electricity. In what ways is IT different? • What proof can you offer that information technology in business no longer provides competitive advantage? • Does the pervasiveness of IT mean there will be less innovation now? • Hasnt competitive advantage come from unique use of the technology, not just from the technology itself? What examples can you give? • Do recent advances in Cloud Computing and Mobile Applications confirm or contradict Nicolas Carrs claims?Objectives Problem IS Information Internet
  • Commoditisation • Over the last 70 years we have repeatly seen proof of innovation in IT : the spreadsheet, the ERP system, Social Network Applications • In the early days, companies created their own legacy systems to put these ideas into practice • As the technologies matured, companies editors standardized these applications in the form of Simon Wardley, "Cloud Computing - Why IT Matters" products. • Inevitably these products become simple commodities
  • Technology and Innovation • Conflict and opportunity – is there a business problem to solve? • Suitability – is it adjacently possible? • The Roadmap– how does technology provide a vision ofWhere Good Ideas Come From, by Steven Johnson « better » • The Happy End – how do we best measure the results

  • The definition of information • From an objective point of view, information refers to date in context that conveys meaning to an individual. • From a subjective point of view, we could suggest that it’s the individual’s perspective of the data that implies meaning. • Given these definitions what meaning do Wikileaks, Twitter, or Facebook have?Objectives Problem IS Information Internet

  • Structured data • Structured data refers to data that cabn be easily represented in textual/numeric form and stored in a database. • Structured data is often logically organized around a data model or data object. • Such models permit companies to compare and aggregate data in databases, datamarts and data warehouses.Objectives Problem IS Information Internet
  • Non-structured data • Data is considered « non-structured » if we can’t predefine its attributes and store it in a table or data base • Examples of this kind of data include press clippings, videoclips, and songs • In reality, this data isn’t « non-structured » - its just that its attributes involve « complex » relationships http://jean.marie.gouarne.online.fr/bi.htmlObjectives Problem IS Information Internet

  • Digital footprints and clickstreams • Before the Web we assumed that our digital footprint was as ephemeral as a phone • Clickstreams can provide a level of intelligence about how people use the Web • Innovative companies have figured out how to deliver great Web-based services by divining clickstream patterns • We have yet to aggregate the critical mass of clickstreams in a database of intentionsObjectives Problem IS Information InternetProf. Lee SCHLENKER
