Trendalyze – Bloor InBrief

Trendalyze describes its core capability as the discovery of motifs (and anomalies) within time series data. You can think of a motif as a micro-pattern but it is more accurately a shape. Once a motif of interest is discovered, or defined, then Trendalyze will search through your time series data to look for recurrences of that motif or for occurrences of shapes that resemble, within parameters that you define, the motif in question. You can then raise alerts that will be generated as this motif is recognised in real-time.

Transition to the Future of Work: CIO Views

Generally, this Future of Work survey seems to support the idea that we are at a disruptive inflection point on the journey to Mutable Business (businesses in a constant state of evolution and change). Nevertheless, this survey looks forward over 2-5 years and 10 years, depending on the question, and it is notoriously difficult to predict past an inflection point. So, the are some contradictory answers to the survey and a feeling of uncertainty as to the exact future (or, perhaps, timescales). This is valid data in itself, and implies that managing cultural change may be a significant feature of planning for future working environments and attitudes. We identified 3 main trends for Future Work, from this survey: Automation; Reskilling, as we need to increase social skills rather than technology skills; and a new focus on the Flexible Workforce, which, we think, will be needed to cope with the needs of the Mutable Business.
