The 2020’s Enterprise is about sorting through the internet-driven advice madness that exists in business today. The great thing about the internet is that anyone can write anything about anything. The problem with the internet is that anyone can write anything about anything! Published practices are quite different than “best practices.” This program will provide practice-based insights in business transformation, organizational transformation and technology transformation, based on real world practices. Business executives, managers, practitioners, and staff are bombarded daily with utopian solutions that more often than not deliver significantly less than promised. This show is “no jargon,” just human communication. Be treated like a “customer” not a “user.” Our philosophy is to provide you with insights that can provide true value to organizations and individuals that face today’s and tomorrow’s competitive pressures, and provide a usable takeaway from each program.

    Architecting to Create Business Agility to Compete in the Post Pandemic World

    Architecting to Create Business Agility to Compete in the Post Pandemic World

    The Coronavirus COVID19 pandemic is the latest in a long list of disruptors to established business models. Whether it is competitors, technology, natural disasters, foreign or domestic threats, a disruption, or the next occurrence of an unknown, businesses are recognizing that change is the new normal.
    This emerging reality does not begin with a new technology. Technology may enable what we refer to as a series of business and mission aligned initiatives to move the organization to its next state – a deliberate movement away from the language of a “desired state”. Enterprise will be looking at what businesses they are in now, and what will be the state of that business and the “next”. What will keep us in the game, and how can we differentiate ourselves to more effectively compete? What are the business aligned capabilities we have today, and what are the business capabilities we need in this next iteration and beyond?
    The new model is stabilize, then prepare to move – the new normal!

    Applying Logic to Consumer Behavior in Times of Crisis

    Applying Logic to Consumer Behavior in Times of Crisis

    My guest on today’s episode of The 2020’s Enterprise with Sam Holcman is Ken Metviner. Ken has a very interesting and fresh perspective on the what the future holds as we move out of the most current crisis we are in. Yes, as I state, this will unfortunately, not be the last crisis, and perhaps we should look at consumer behavior with a bit more logic than just believe it is a “random walk”.

    Ken will outline a perspective that we suggest is quite unique and logical. He suggests that one half the economy can be characterized as stable and one half the economy characterized as variable – each requiring move-ahead approaches in their own way.

    Perhaps applying a method to the madness will get us on the path to both short- and long-term health! Stay tuned to this very special episode!

    Data Driven Marketing – the Key to Digital Transformation

    Data Driven Marketing – the Key to Digital Transformation

    Technology has changed the way companies deliver their marketing message but has not changed basic marketing principles. Customer data is the most valuable asset a company has. Customers use reviews as a way of deciding which company to do business with. Consumers expect an instant and friction-less experience with the companies they do business with. Data and customer information allow companies to hyper-target their marketing message. Of course, underlying all of this is privacy - a concern that needs to be addressed.

    In this episode of The 2020’s Enterprise, we are privileged to have as our guest Clark Keller – the CEO of Data Drive Marketing, a company that has been in this field since 1994. We will get unique insights into marketing in the digital age, from one of the original thinkers in this field. The name of his Company is as relevant today, as it was in the 90’s! Tune in, and gets some insight into this extremely relevant requirement in the digital age.

    Distance Learning – The New Normal?

    Distance Learning – The New Normal?

    In this unique view of distance learning, we will be speaking with three college students, from three different universities, on their personal experiences in this, in some cases very new learning environment. School closures have led educational institutions everywhere to scramble to move instruction to an online format. It is unfortunate, that once again, proper planning seems to have given way to crisis management and implementation.

    We will get real insights from real students on what they see and feel about this new reality. Questions discussed will include, beyond basic education topics, food, housing, money, learning access, feedback, social interactions, and the “new” academic life.

    EACOE and BACOE have been involved in Distance Learning for some years now. We also hope to gain insights “from the trenches” on what works, and what needs improvement. Please tune into this very unique episode of The 2020’s Enterprise with Sam Holcman and guests!

    Focusing on the Here and Now – A One Day Exercise

    Focusing on the Here and Now – A One Day Exercise

    If you are reading this post or tuning into our broadcast in the April 2020 timeframe, you and your organization, and our organization are in a bit of a turmoil situation. Pressures are coming from an incredible number of directions, and focus is easily lost and replaced by motions and actions that substitute for planned actions and strategies. Focus, consistency, coordinated actions, and efficiencies are more important “in the now”, yet we need some explicit representations that the organization can view and act on.

    At EACOE and BACOE we call this the Tactical Analysis of Goals and Results – TAGR. Whether this done top down, middle out, or bottom up, it is the explicit representation of what is trying to be achieved, and the expected outcome over what timeframe. Yes, unfortunately, a short-term focus but a necessity at this hour. The objective is to bring laser-focus to what is necessary to succeed in the here and now. Yes, a tactical explicit approach is needed to survive this

    Architecting for the Cloud and the Cloud Repatriation Movement

    Architecting for the Cloud and the Cloud Repatriation Movement

    The cloud is often discussed as offering the potential for better technology and business agility, but moving computing resources has two sides. The benefits are often mentioned and discussed. Some information technology leaders are learning that running certain applications in the cloud can cost more than doing so on-premises, and can add complexity and security concerns not fully appreciated in the “rush” to the cloud, leading them to rethink their strategies, and bring certain applications back in house.

    A recent study by IDC says that 85 percent of technology managers saying they were repatriating computer applications from the cloud. A staggering number that is actually not getting much press or attention. To those that remember or study a bit of history in the rise and decline in “time-sharing” computing of decades ago, this should not be of a totally surprise. We will outline our EACOE Enterprise Architecture analysis approach on rationalizing cloud/in-house strategies.
