  4. 4. Crazy-making IoT numbers & hype 4 “The Industrial Internet is growing at twice the rate of the consumer Internet, with 20 billion devices generating 80 exabytes of data.” “…more than 40 percent of organizations expect the IoT to have a significant impact in the short term, and this number rises to more than 60 percent in the long term. Industries dealing with tangible equipment, products and services (such as retailers and manufacturers) are more likely to see the IoT as having a significant impact.” Sources: IDC; Pivotal analysis of AWS; Gartner IoT MQ; "Survey Analysis: The Internet of Things Is a Revolution Waiting to Happen," Gartner, 2015.

  8. 8. Conclusion: Software is eating your world too.
  9. 9. Are you great, or even good at software?

  12. 12. How Pivotal thinks: Agile and Small Batches
  13. 13. After 17 years, “Agile” is not as wide-spread as we think it is – make sure you’re actually doing it Source: “Town Hall: Agile in the Enterprise,” Mike West, Nathan Wilson, Thomas Murphy, Dec 2015, Gartner AADI US conference.13
  14. 14. Use small batch thinking for more user centric design Inception Hypothesize Validate w/real use(r)s Did it work? Sources: “Good Software is a Series of Little Failures,” Coté, April 2016; The Lean Startup, Eric Ries, 2011. The Lean Enterprise, Barry O'Reilly, Jez Humble, and Joanne Molesky. See also overview of this approach at the IRS from Dec 2015. "Application Modernization, Service By Microservice," Kurt Bittner and Randy Heffner, Forrester, Dec 2015. Also: PDCA, OODA, and Bacon.14 “We did an analysis of hundreds of projects over a multiyear period. The ones that delivered in less than a quarter succeeded about 80% of the time, while the ones that lasted more than a year failed at about the same rate. We’re simply not very good at large efforts.” Large financial institution
