Demystifying Digital Transformation standard

Are you getting burned out over the endless hype that is Digital Transformation and its attendant terrors: is your business being Ubered, will you be swallowed by the Digital Tsunami, are you pursuing data-driven business models, etc.? Beneath the hype are some core questions about what this Digital Business phenomenon really means to executives, their businesses, and entire – yes, reconstituted – industries. Here at Digital Bridge Partners, we’ve been demystifying the what, why and how of Digital Business Innovation by examining the ways digital is changing the axis of competition and value creation from what we call digitally-enabled value creation to digitally-driven value creation. As the graphic indicates, digitally-enabled value creation pertains to digital acting upon traditional physical elements (basically ...

Finding Enterprise Value in Hyperconnection standard

Last week we responded to a great Economist article about how Moore’s law– that overall processing power for computers doubles every two years– is slowing. Now SW algorithms and deep learning, the connected cloud and specialized chips embedded in the cloud are what are increasing computational power. A new “Law of Hyperconnection” states that overall network performance doubles every 2 years.  According to Digital Universe that’s how often the world’s data is doubling, so that seems to work. This law gets really exciting  when we start seeing the financial value of all those doubling connections. McKinsey recently calculated that interoperability will drive 40-60 percent of value created by IoT– that’s  $1.5 to 6.7 trillion by 2025. That’s a lot of value ...

Humanity and the Law of Hyperconnection image

In a recent blog post we introduced “The Law of Hyperconnection,” which states that overall network performance will double every 2 years—a riff off Moore’s Law, which no longer works or matters that much in a networked-focused vs. device-focused world. We opined that it’s the relationship of data, stuff, people and processes that powers the value equation of the Law of Hyperconnection.  Presumably the value accrues to all sides of the network – companies who make stuff, people who consume it and everyone in between. But what happens to our individual and collective humanity when the data in the known universe doubles every 24 months and increasingly EVERYTHING is digitized?  Pay attention to what Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Apple and Amazon are up to with the ...

Hyperconnection and the Future of Computing standard

A great article in the Economist on March 12th, “After Moore’s law: The Future of Computing,” got me thinking. According to Moore’s Law, “processing power doubles roughly every two years as smaller transistors are packed ever more tightly onto silicon wafers.” However, this rate, consistent for the last 50 years, has now slowed down to every 2.5 years. The author says that computational progress will not actually slow, but come increasingly from improved algorithms and deep learning, the connected cloud, and access to specialized chips embedded in the cloud. The Economist forgot to name the revised law, so I’m calling it The Law of Hyperconnection. According to the Law of Hyperconnection, overall network performance doubles every 2 years; according to ...
