How to develop the Vision for Digital Transformation? by Sandeep Raut

Digital Transformation is now a number one priority for many businesses. Over the past two years, businesses have put increased focus on digitally transforming their brands from the inside out.

It is an ongoing process of change based on the market and needs of the customers. To deliver this change successfully, there is a need to establish a clear vision with objectives & expected outcomes.

Cybersecurity in the “When-Not-If” Era by Jean-Christophe Gaillard

The “When-Not-If” paradigm around cyber-attacks is changing the deal completely around cybersecurity.

Many large organisations now assume that breaches are simply inevitable, due to the inherent complexity of their business models and the multiplication of attack surfaces and attack vectors which comes with it.

Libra coin and what it means

Technology is constantly improving in the world around us, and cryptocurrencies are no different.

The latest cryptocurrency to be announced and met with controversy and a media lash back is Libra, Facebook's new cryptocurrency. But cryptocurrencies could be the way forward...what if we could make money truly global and secure?

Libra caused enormous backlash for a number of reasons, but the main arguments were that it was backed and developed by Facebook, and that it would replace money completley (which cannot happen with the way our economies and countries are built).

Machine Learning - The brain of Digital Transformation by Sandeep Raut

We are all familiar with machine learning in our everyday lives. Both Amazon and Netflix use machine learning to learn our preferences and provide better shopping and movie experience.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has stormed the world today. It is an umbrella term that includes multiple technologies, such as machine learning, deep learning, and computer vision, natural language processing (NLP), machine reasoning, and strong AI.

Liberate LIBRA of the currency war, and let it find its meaningful place as a STO by Prasoon Mukherjee

Calvin Coolidge said, "Doubters do not achieve, sceptics do not contribute, and cynics do not create". At the outset let me truthfully confess that I am neither of the three on this subject. On the contrary, I truly believe that we are changing the world in the way that business is conducted, and transactions are processed, “one blockchain at a time", and as we use this technology true to its potential, this world will turn into a better place for everyone.

The Two Factors Killing GRC Practices by Jean-Christophe Gaillard

Many CISOs complain of communication problems with their business. They are not being listened to. They are not getting the budget they think they should get. They feel their business prioritises against security too often.

It has been a recurring theme amongst information security professionals for the best part of the last 15 years, and it is rooted in a wide range of factors, amongst which the profile of the CISO is often a dominant limitation.

Digital Ice-breaking by Harvey Neve

I was recently doing a bit of networking, talking about how we're using digital exemplar projects as a key enabler to drive our wider digital business transformation. For those who read my blogs, you’ll know I can’t resist a good analogy and the analogy I always use for this is that the exemplars are like icebreaking vessels; big, highly visible, strong and powerful.

Leading in an agile world by Harvey Neve

Over the last few years you can’t have failed to notice a number of factors coming together in a potent mix, creating the opportunity for “digital transformation”:

  • availability of data,
  • the power and availability of technology,
  • mobile and cloud computing,
  • peoples’ raised service expectations,
  • a shift to more agile ways of working.

I’ve observed that this disruption is also driving an absolute requirement for a change in the way leaders lead. Some approaches are simply no longer an option.
