Get ready for VR and AR

Categories: Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality

The integration of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) into business processes and operations has begun and is already causing some unexpected issues.   The integration of VR and AR is all about innovation and breaking the rules!  We have experienced this type of disruption before.  However, the cumulative implications of VR and AR should be underestimated.  Some people dread the disruption this is and will continue to cause.  Many now believe that VR and AR will have at least a moderate impact on social norms.  That will further disrupt the status quo.  All of this has some researchers in psychiatry and behavioral health beginning to examine the implications and the resistance that some professionals are exhibiting.  With VR and AR as well as the other breakthrough technologies that have begun to emerge we will all be challenged!

Technology Sea-Change

Categories: Technology Sea-Change

Today, business strategies have become tightly coupled with the continuous infusion of technology. By one measure, this period will be ten times the magnitude of impact as the Internet era of the mid to late 90s.  This has many executives demanding accelerated delivery times for programs and projects.  In addition, this has created continuous reinvention and reengineering or operational processes and systems.  Some are finding this tight coupling quite troublesome given their inability to change and adapt in a timely fashion.  All of this has resulted in program and project managers falling under increased pressure for delivery of all that organizations need to adapt to the sea of change in what is being called, ‘real-time-enough’ manner. 

Here is an interesting publication by Deloitte related to this sea-change:  https://documents.dupress.deloitte.com/TechTrends2018

SIGNIFICANT Movement

Categories: Cryptocurrencies

Ok  now the market cap for the 1,387 cryptocurrencies now exceeds $750 (3/4 of a trillion dollars. billion).  Given we really do not have historical data to guide us, it is anyone's guess where this is going.  BUT it is sure fun to watch!

Smart City (from scratch) Project Underway in the USA.

Categories: Emerging Technologies, Smart City

Yahoo recently reported that Bill Gates had purchased 25,000 Arizona acres to build a 'Smart City.'  There is little doubt that a program or overall project manager will be put in place.  This will be the culmination of multiple technologies, industries and professions and could last upwards of a decade.  A few of the emerging technologies that are likely to be a part of this program/project have been briefly covered here on the Emerging Technology Blog and in my articles.  In the coming months more of the emerging technologies that are likely to be a part of this initiative will be presented here.
