The Rise Of The Neo Nomad The Rise Of The Neo Nomad Presentation Transcript

  • CULTURAL COMMODITIZATION, HYPERCOMPETITION AND MASS IPIZATION: GIVING BIRTH TO THE IAP AND THE RISE OF THE NEO-NOMAD. IAP & the Rise of the Neo-Nomad 8 June 2009
  • Trends
    • Economic
      • Hypercompetition
    • Social
      • Nomadlization
    • Political
      • Co-opetition
    • Cultural
      • Commoditization
    • Technological
      • Mass IPization
    • Effects are:
      • McCluture
      • Rise of the Neo-nomad
      • Tribes without rulers
    • All of this is giving rise to the Information Age Paradox or IAP
  • The Information Age Paradox
    • The principle of the IAP
    • The more virtually interconnected we are
    • The more physically disassociated we become
  • Cycles of Societal Structure Change
    • Circle of societal structures over the course of human evolution
      • Nomadic
      • Tribal
      • Agrarian
    • Now coming into a new era as we come full circle
      • Neo-nomadic
        • A hybrid of Agrarian & Nomadic
  • The Rise of the Neo-Nomad
    • Unlike the earlier Nomadic era, we are mobile, but not alone or unconnected
    • Now we are living & working in a dual model society
      • Agrarian – overarching social, political and economic single framework
      • Nomadic – a social sub-segment – a wandering population working with & within the agrarian structural framework
    • This has largely been enable through the advances in technology driving the world’s increased interconnectedness
  • Impact
    • Fundamental Changes to Organizational Structure
      • An organization is a sub-set of a society and societal structures, they follow the same trends
      • If organizations replicate societal structural norms, then this will create a paradigm shift in organisational structure
      • As there are more neo-nomads within the workforce, the structures will need to shift accommodate them
  • Impact
    • IT infrastructures and applications were designed for an agrarian model
      • Dominance of the LAN
    • Nomadic model requires very different design & development paradigm
      • Proliferation of the WAN
    • This has a significant impact on the efficiency of the WAN
      • Application Protocols were designed for a low latency, LAN environment
    • Because of this LAN applications delivered over a WAN suffers from
        • Latency
        • Congestion
    • In general, unlike a LAN-dominant environment , a WAN-dominant environment suffers:
        • Latency
        • Congestion
        • QoS
        • Visibility
        • Application responsiveness
    • Creates unproductive sub-segment of the workforce
  • Proof
    • Proof of the rise of the neo-nomad can be found in the proliferation of the following:
      • Web-based applications
      • Wireless networks
      • Smart phones
      • Resurrection of VoIP
      • Government digital initiatives
    • All of these are designed for anywhere/everywhere access to people/data/information
  • Issues Facing IT Execs
    • Optimization of capital on IT solutions (solutions that scale/protect long term investment/are part of the strategy for their companies);
    • Security of applications, data, customers, etc (compliance with regulatory laws/GLBA for banks, etc. HIPPA for medical, etc.);
    • Enhancement of the user experience (as the IT staff is a staff functional position and not line and must now show value to their customers the users!).
