What is Recovery Testing?

Testlodge

For example, if your product is a communications platform for the airline industry being used 24/7 and highly depended upon, the ability to recover within seconds or minutes is paramount. If you find yourself leading a project that involves business process and technology, be sure to review any existing recovery testing procedures. Is your team prepared for when disaster strikes?

AI for everyone - How companies can benefit from the advance of machine learning

All Things Distributed

When a technology has its breakthrough, can often only be determined in hindsight. We must therefore discuss – parallel to the technological developments – how humans and AI can co-exist in the future; the moral and ethical aspects that arise; how to ensure we have a good grip on AI; and which legal parameters we need in order to manage all this. We dare to claim that we are the company that has been applying AI and ML as a business technology the longest.

Organise your engineering teams around the work by reteaming

Specialisation could be around products, business process, or technologies. Unlike healthcare and aviation where practices don't change over the decades, software technology is changing every day.

Scheduling Time, Part 3: Meeting Coordination Optimizations

Can a Business Rent a Core Capability?

The Agile Manager

It needs to be developed, and developing it requires a capability in technology (design, coding, testing, etc.) New technologies disrupt by creating new behaviours and expectations among its users. Still, this is more disruptive than developing technologies that mimic existing functionality in the same segment: being late to the game with a "me, too" strategy does not generate much in the way of behaviour change.

Are Microservices to Ecosystems as Core Competencies were to Conglomerates?

The Agile Manager

During the 1950's and 60's, companies also pursued conglomerate strategies: bringing seemingly unrelated businesses under one roof, sometimes seeking synergies (as Sears did owning a retail merchandiser and retail brokerage - "buy your stocks where you buy your socks"), and sometimes not (as LTV did owning a steel company and an airline). It's stable cash flows would be attractive to debt finance, better aligning capital investment in HR technology.

Utilities, Strategic Investments, and the CIO

The Agile Manager

Each is a new take on an old theme, echoing one part of the contradiction that has riddled every business with a captive technology department: we want to minimize how much we spend on IT, and we want IT to be a source of innovation. Personal technology such as spreadsheets and smartphones empowers increasingly tech-savvy knowledge workers. Nor should they on a technology utility. At the same time, firms invest in themselves through technology.

Investing in Strategic Capability versus Buying Tactical Capacity

Capital Structures and Organizational Pathologies: Tech Investments in Debt-Fuelled Capital Intensive Companies

The Agile Manager

Suppose that the operating company is in a firefight for market share, where the primary weapons are customer-facing technology (as is happening in retail, entertainment, and, to a lesser extent, airlines - all of which have capital intensive asset-cos side-by-side with cash generative op-cos.). Software companies are high-risk businesses: investors wager that the people in the firm can not only create interesting technologies, but can find users for them, and ways to monetize them.
