Why IT-Led Digital Transformations Fail? @danhushon @DXCTechnology
Dan Hushon
because the business doesn't trust traditional IT to have the skills to deliver the value?
Martin Risau
We need to be able to demonstrate value way faster than before. This is why we have services like Data Experience to show customer what you can do differently in the business based on the insight of your data.
Martin Risau
And an average time to do this is 6-8 weeks and not months.
Dragan
digital transformation is about making business processes more intelligent - that cannot be done without the business participation and commitment.
John B. Corrin
IT assumes they know what business wants and develops the transformation in a vacuum.
Jerry Overton
I see this a lot as well. I look forward to the prominence of experimentation + collaboration in this area
Martin Lee
I think it's the age-old conundrum of the business-IT disconnect that's been around for decades. A big part of that problem is senior mgt has rarely seen IT as core to their business, but IT to blame too, thinking technically when need biz lens.

@AnalyticsCTO Traditional I.T needs to leave way for software innovation which should base itself on business transformation
Arin Dey
How to pick the right "Analytics" strategy / solution for a Governmental Organization that very often access and process highly sensitive, personal data? @DXCTechnology
Dan Hushon
it still comes down to the same basics... what is the toolbox and where and how do you manage the information pools. the complexity is always in the unforeseen value of information composition... where A+B=C where C becomes differentially classed
Dragan
also must implement data security and data governance from the start and not as afterthought
Dan Hushon
I think that the work that @Immuta is doing on the #GDPR side provides some interesting techniques for managing the trust divide.
John Furrier
Immuta is doing some great things
John Furrier
I met the founding team at Immuta this week in NYC

What's the most powerful application of #AI you've seen so far?
Dragan
Robo Drive - self-driving car solution which includes object recognition, situation analysis, & drive strategy
Jerry Overton
@AnalyticsCTO Cool, an example of driving #AI to the edge. Along those lines, check out the latest from @xnor_ai: https://xnor.ai/

@vittalmadurai Oh man, you gotta send me a link!

or a Chatbot, bring up a #kubernetes service based on a query
Martin Risau
Without talking about it in detail, intelligence and police are most sophisticated. Securing London Olympics couple of years ago, is a public reference.
Dan Hushon
I find some of the working being done in simultaneous linguistic translation (e.g. language learning) to be pretty amazing
Jerry Overton
Lately, I've been looking for applications of #AI to resiliency in digital systems-- an "anti-fragile" approach. Haven't found much, yet.
Jerry Overton
@DanHushon Do you see potential for increased productivity in administrative tasks?
Arin Dey
Siri or Alexa
Jerry Overton
@ArinDey Yeah, I find those impressive as well
Arin Dey
Actually the list would be big.. but I would like to add Tesla and Cogito as well :)
Jerry Overton
@ArinDey I'm very interested in the direction that realtime emotional intelligence might take.
Dan Hushon
I see personal assistants making huge strides, on your resiliency point, what can #AI to to identify white space in designs - things untested?
Jerry Overton
@DanHushon Good question. I'm thinking digital twin: simulation to explore a design space and find new possibilities
Mubashar Rashid
@danhushon @analyticsCTO How to use simple analytics tools to drive data driven behaviour in everything we do? I am thinking of at personal computing level?
Dan Hushon
if you haven't moved from excel to #PowerBI run fast! right @richrebajr ?
Mubashar Rashid
Trying to move from PowerBI to R Studio...but would be good to have common direction
Dragan
agree with Dan. Also, finding a business person with a mind set for innovation to support you and bring the solutions to business decision makers should work
Martin Risau
Dan just beat me. And there are so many visualization test licenses, it is behavior but also story-telling. Try it out. It is so simple by now - and addictive.
Mubashar Rashid
Agree on the story telling....I think we can be much more powerful in the way we work....but everyone need to have some basic understanding of "insight" digging
Nigel Barron
ResearchNetwork is developing a CI Command Center on #PowerBI
Mubashar Rashid
Martin, any specific visualization tools in mind? Preferably not one I need to buy after a months trial :)
vittal krishnasamy
agree. Story-telling and visualization auguments #AI vector

Are analytics being used in any DXC systems? How effective are they? Any plan to leverage analytics & AI to help DXC operations?
Chris Swan
Yep - Analytics is where we start in optimising our delivery http://blog.thestate...
Axel Szymanski
They are already used in many areas of operations of standard DXC services. too many to enumerate here - but think of support, monitoring, change management.
Dragan
long list across our OFs: security, BPS, Cloud, Apps are all implementing advanced analytics as part of their solutions. Also healthcare and insurance
Ngoc Do
I'd like to start with some basis questions, AI nowadays seems to be the buzzword, and AI involve/consume data; analytics of course involve data, what're different between AI & analytics and how are they related to each other?
Jerry Overton
For starters, here'a an example progression from #analytics to #AI: https://csccommunity...
Jerry Overton
IMO It's about building systems that integrate disparate sources, automates tasks, and leans as it goes.
Martin Risau
And to add to Jerrys post, I like Gartner's Hype Cycle. Adv Analytics is mass adoption, Big Data was there where AI is 4 years ago. Big Data is now reality. AI just started but is coming in big steps - Faster than Big Data IMHO
Arin Dey
Are we building data-driven or behavioral personas upon which we can take action – with targeting or otherwise? @danhushon
Dan Hushon
sure, but also understanding our talent, our competition, our products, our service all with a continuous improvement optic - productivity!

Can we do a little roll call here? Who's a #DXCTechTalk first-timer this go round? I know we've got to have at least 1 or 2 newbies...
Steve Hawkins
- Hi I am a Newbie
Axel Szymanski
yes, am here first time.
DXC Technology
Thanks for joining!
Heather Simpson 🌈🍃
Nice, welcome Steve and Axel! What do you think?
Steve Hawkins
Interesting discussion but it can be confusing talking AI when AI is commonly Artificial Intelligence. @heatherswall
