  • IT Management Is Becoming So Predictive – Which Is Good. Right?
    IT Management Is Becoming So Predictive – Which Is Good. Right? Dan Ortega - Vice President of Marketing Recorded: May 25 2017 5 mins
    Improvements in IT data quality and analysis tools have enabled IT management to spend less time looking into the past and more time enabling the dynamic enterprise of the future. This allows them to anticipate business events more accurately, forecast costs and capacity, and identify operational risks before they appear. Empowered by technology-driven insights and technology-enabled prediction ability, IT leaders have secured a long-sought seat at the table with their business counterparts during the strategic planning process. IT management becoming more predictive is good. Right? Perhaps, but there are some risks to consider.

    Technology-enabled prediction is only as good as the underlying data, and does a poor job of addressing unknown variables. Human intuition and analysis skills have traditionally been used to fill gaps in available data, interpret meaning and project future events. The predictive abilities of most IT leaders are heavily dependent on the quality of information and technology-enabled processing power at their disposal. Modern machine learning systems have made tremendous strides in analyzing large volumes of data to identify trends and patterns based on past and current observations. Their capability to do so is limited, however, by the quality and dependability of data inputs. “Garbage in-garbage out” has been the rule for many years.

    Learning how to harness the power of technology and information and applying it to create valuable predictive insights for an organizations is definitely good; IT leaders should be commended for bringing new capabilities to the decision-making table. As we all know, however, no information is perfect, and technology has its limitations. Becoming entirely reliant on technology for prediction and losing the ability to apply a human filter is a risky situation for businesses. As with many business decisions, it is important to balance the potential benefits with the acceptable risk profile for your organization

  • Just in Time Automation
    Just in Time Automation Jeff Kunzelman, Chief Technology Officer at POPin Jun 8 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The classic way of identifying, developing, testing and rolling out new technology relies on management to identify a bottleneck and set a deadline, product management to scope the issue and develop the requirements and then the development time “sprints” through an agile process to deliver the goods. Once the solution was rolled out, the employees suddenly had another process with which they had to comply.

    Now, however, there is a better way. IT and development leaders can crowdsource roadblocks from their audience as well as their teams instead of guessing what to address, which will tell them exactly where technology can automate processes and solutions in order to make it easier for their employees. The result? Solutions employees actually need that are built the best for your organization.

    Join Jeff Kunzelman, Chief Technology Officer at POPin, as he discusses how crowdsolving and automation can revolutionize your business. Specifically, expect to takeaway:

    •Examination of past and current ways of handling development
    •Identification of ways to avoid bottlenecks
    •Examples of successful crowdsourcing
    •Best practices for technology automation
    •Solutions for employee-driven initiatives
    •And more…
