Q11: What are you most looking forward to at #ibminterconnect?
Dave Messinger
not having to prepare a presentation anymore #humblebrag #goingbananasonslides
Amy Hermes
Can't wait to see you on stage @dmessing !! Keep us posted on the date/time!!! :)
Saleem Padani
Bigger and Better! Game changing ideas, cool demos and tons of client success stories that we will be showcasing...
Tim Crawford
Looking at the various types of #DigitalTransformation fruit including kumquats at
IBM InterConnect
Q4: The concept of digital transformation...what’s the end game? Or does it need to be an ever-evolving process?
Tim Crawford
#DigitalTransformation is a journey, not a race. More on my thoughts: #CIO https://avoa.com/201...
Dave Messinger
Disruptive tech is accelerating in pace #digitaltransformation is about being ready for that and won't slow down either.
Amy Hermes
There is no "end game" in digital transformation @IBMInterConnect -- identify key milestones and keep on goin'!
Tim Crawford
For the #CIO, #DigitalTransformation is incredibly personal and involves deep thought.
Dave Messinger
Thats why organization agility (not agile dev per se) is critical - to quickly re-organize around next challenge as new disruptions emerge.
Steven Dickens
@amyhermes definitely a never finished project...
Tim Crawford
More importantly: #DigitalTransformation supports #AI, #IoT, and forthcoming changes.
Tim Crawford
@amyhermes Identification of objectives and having a vision are key to #DigitalTransformation.
Saleem Padani
Digital disruption will not occur in an overnight big bang. For me it's a continuously evolving process perhaps reaching a point when you not not just able to disrupt your competitors but also yourself in the process and restart.
Tim Crawford
@spadani1 To the old adage: Disrupt or be disrupted. #CIO
IBM InterConnect
Q6: What are the biggest obstacles faced when organizations commit to a digital transformation?
Tim Crawford
One of the biggest challenges to #DigitalTransformation is determining where to start. #CIO
Dave Messinger
Talent. Digital talent is hard to find, hire, manage, retain.
Saleem Padani
@IBMInterConnec "We have always done it that way" or Don't rock the boat or Too afraid to say what's wrong with what's going on....
Dave Messinger
@spadani1 agree NIH culture is huge obstacle.
Tim Crawford
@dmessing I don't know what you're talking about. :)
Tim Crawford
One thing that is paramount for #DigitalTransformation is a solid vision and leader. #CIO
Amy Hermes
Agree @tcrawford -- and even before determining where to start, identifying all stakeholders, garnering buy-in and ongoing commitment is a challenge.
Tim Crawford
@dmessing #DigitalTransformation is a team sport...not an individual one. Orgs are key.
IBM InterConnect
Q1: Where does digital transformation generally start (C-suite? LOB?) within an organization, and where should it start?
Steven Dickens
with client demand driving the requirements
Tim Crawford
Today, digital transformation starts w/ LoB. However, the #CIO and c-suite play an instrumental role.
Sanjeev Sharma
@ibminterconnect #digitaltransformtion needs to be led by the LOB, and sponsored by the C-Suite
Tim Crawford
Often, the one leading #DigitalTransformation can feel like the kumquat of the fruit bowl.
Dave Messinger
Can initiate from anywhere - more about having motivated driver of transformation than any specific role.
Amy Hermes
Right @StevenDickens3 ?!? I vote that's the title of the next blog post written by @tcrawford !!!!
Steven Dickens
can I get credit in dispatches?
Tim Crawford
Each organization style/ structure/ culture will dictate the best way to initiate #DigitalTransformation.
Dave Messinger
People go bananas trying to define a specific a specific template for the who - but how is more critical.
Carolin Meinhardt
#DigitalTransformation starts with an creative idea to a problem. Always a new perspective
Amy Hermes
Sensing a new chat theme emerging here @IBMInterConnect @tcrawford...
IBM InterConnect
Q3: What are some of the key characteristics of that culture shift if necessary?
Tim Crawford
One of the first things is changing the language of IT. #CIO https://avoa.com/201...
Sanjeev Sharma
#DevOps provides a framework for the culture of collaboration and communication needed
Steven Dickens
agree, its also about breaking down silo's for example look at what Google is doing with their SRE teams
Dave Messinger
Key ones: understanding of broader organization/mission, accepting change/disruption, working outside of traditional org charts, experiment and scaling over big bang approaches
Tim Crawford
@sd_architect If one engages #DevOps, does that provide Transformation?
Dave Messinger
#devops on its own is just best practice and maybe transformational for your development, on its own not full digital transformation
Sanjeev Sharma
@tcrawford It provides the agility needed to transform. Adopting #DevOps is a transformation itself
Steven Dickens
SRE is an example of the type of change required https://landing.goog...
Bert Latamore
Trust in the data to make business decisions based on the analysis rather than "gut feel".
Tim Crawford
@sd_architect If one does not engage #DevOps, can one not transform?
Dave Messinger
Another culture change is divestment in control to the edge - hierarchy is slower than internet and can't keep up.
Sanjeev Sharma
@tcrawford If one has rigid, inefficient development and delivery practices, and does not have a culture of collaboration and trust, it is very difficult to transform IT
IBM InterConnect
Q2: Can Digital transformation happen without a culture shift throughout the organization?
Steven Dickens
absolutely not... DevOps, agile, scrums etc are nothing without a change in mindset, let alone digital transformation....
Sanjeev Sharma
Big resounding NO!
Dave Messinger
Depends on the current culture, but critical to have an agility at the organizational level given diversity of skills involved.
Tim Crawford
#DigitalTransformation absolutely requires a culture shift across the organization. #CIO
Dave Messinger
Any NIH culture will be huge obstacle to success.
Saleem Padani
It's the hardest thing to change....often a lot of technology is thrown to solve this problem and without the change in attitude and mindset, it becomes a lost cause or success is only achieved at a very small scale.
Bert Latamore
It definitely requires a culture shift. But that has to be built on confidence in the data & analysis. And that starts with data quality.
IBM DevOps
If there's no culture shift in the organization, it's like there's a big grapefruit in the room. Changing culture is key!
A C Freeman
Culture shift is a critical component and can be much trickier than the technology shift
Dave Messinger
Also needs a real focus - transformational efforts that are part of the bigger mission are just executive vanity projects.
Amy Hermes
Recall you wrote a POV piece about cultural shifts and adjusting mindsets @tcrawford a few months back --> https://avoa.com/201...
