ZDNet: Why AI and machine learning need to be part of your digital transformation plans

Tools like IBM Watson “introduce machine learning to understand what human beings have a hard time seeing in the context of their work,” said Brian Solis, principal analyst at Altimeter. “Machine learning will allow companies to see things they wouldn’t otherwise, because of the cognitive bias that exists in the relationship between humans and the data they collect.”

“Bedrijven denken vaak dat ze de klant centraal stellen, maar in de werkelijkheid zijn het vaak de aandeelhouders. En dat is oké”, stelt Solis. “Maar de consumenten veranderen en stellen steeds hogere eisen. Bedrijven moeten nieuwe manieren zoeken om te verbinden met consumenten en waarde te creëren. Daarom moeten we human-centric zijn, om het soort ervaringen te ontwerpen dat betekenis heeft en shareable is.”

Brian Solis, who is interested in “digital anthropology,” said the possibility of being a so-called “bad friend” for opting to go mainly digital is something people are still adapting to.

“We are getting lazier, and so putting something on a wall is checked off as a personal interaction for most people,” he said. “But we’re learning the hard way, through experience — so there really is no answer to the ‘bad friend’ notion. It’s all user-defined.”

“Social media is about sociology and psychology more than technology” — Brian Solis

Western military forces – in most cases – are in fact anti-social.

There is no real intention of engagement, no replies to comments or tweets. We busy ourselves measuring likes, comments, shares, retweets and reach but the parade of shallow vanity metrics being delivered in reports as a solid return on investment does little to measure or quantify the actual strategic effect applied. In many cases, the strategic effect is unclear or absent to begin with.

What comes out clearly, reading the report – based on the input of more than 500 digital transformation strategists and executives – is that “innovation has become a key priority in digital transformation efforts. This trend is rapidly gaining momentum as companies look to the startup ecosystem as a means to innovate and tap into the new expertise and talent often missing from more traditional organizations.”

Author and influencer Brian Solis asserts that a customer’s journey, right from searching to buying a product or service comprises of ‘micro moments’, which marketers need to cater to by deploying new tools and techniques birthed by technology that boost the chances of making their products and services discoverable. Especially since Google noticed that 90% of people who search for products or services on their smartphones initially do so without having any particular brand in mind, and 65% hunt for the most relevant information regardless of who is providing it. He uses the term ‘Digital Darwinism‘ to refer to the varying but inevitable degree of disruption brought about by technology on various businesses.

Comment se faire un avis dans ce lacis de plaidoiries souvent trop ethnocentrées ? En jetant déjà un coup d’œil sur les très, trop nombreuses études qui s’attardent sur la nature et l’impact de la révolution numérique en entreprise. Certaines ne sont pas très sérieuses, d’autres heureusement permettent de tracer de nouveaux chemins sur la carte qui mène à la transformation digitale. C’est le cas de l’étude nord-américaine de Brian Solis, établie pour le cabinet Altimeter du groupe Prophet.
