Direction Uncertainty

  1. Data is the modern commercial battlefield
  2. Information dominance is the strategic goal
  3. It takes an “Optimized Information Logistics Systems” (OILS) to compete
  4. Advantages in speed, analytics, operational tempos and information logistics – determine the winners
  5. Real-time operational tempos are required
  6. Businesses that can “analyze data and act and with speed” dominate those which are slower
  7. Advantages exponentially increase competitive advantages
  8. Situational awareness enables innovations and operations at a lower cost and with increased efficiencies
  9. Principal of API Acceleration & Mobility – As demand for mobile apps increases, an even greater demand for new APIs and changes across the business and IT will arise
  10. Mobile apps provide only as much value as the systems behind them
  11. The more data that is collected, analyzed and used, the greater the economic value and innovation opportunities it produces
  12. Data has a shelf life, and the economic value of data diminishes quickly over time
  13. The economic value of information multiplies when combined with context and right time delivery
  14. The size of opponents are less representative of power today, than the quality of their sensor systems, mobile communication links and their ability to use information to their advantage
  15. Ultimately winners will dominate by automating decision-making and executing repetitive work using robotic process automation better and faster than competitors through the implementation of artificial intelligence and machine learning
