Sigfox Plans Global IoT Network. France's Sigfox has big ambitions to build a global network dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT) that runs in parallel to today's GSM/LTE networks.
But that doesn't mean Sigfox is positioning itself as a competitor to mobile operators. Instead it intends to spread its networks beyond its current markets of France, the Netherlands and Spain by developing service partnerships with mobile carriers in other parts of Europe and in Asia, and rolling out networks in cities in the US. "We are in discussions with major carriers in a number of different countries," says Ludovic Le Moan, CEO of Sigfox. Sigfox's hope is that operators will use its network, which runs in unlicensed narrowband frequencies in the 915MHz and 868MHz ranges and makes very low power demands on devices, as a low-cost backup or alternative to their existing networks when providing M2M connectivity.
Make Strategic Thinking Part of Your Job. It’s a common complaint among top executives: “I’m spending all my time managing trivial and tactical problems, and I don’t have time to get to the big-picture stuff.”
And yet when I ask my executive clients, “If I cleared your calendar for an entire day to free you up to be ‘more strategic,’ what would you actually do?” Most have no idea. Home. Node-RED.

If you’re in this boat, you will pretty quickly encounter a couple of key questions, namely: What are my options for creating the mobile app?
And why does it usually cost so much to create the mobile app? Just take few minutes to browse your preferred marketplace for a mobile app, such as the App Store or Google Play, and you will have a sense of the vast number of apps available, something for nearly any interest.

Cloud innovation for the year ahead: From infrastructure to innovation. Mercredi 27 janvier 2016 For years, there has been discussion on when the enterprise-cloud migration tipping point would be reached, and at last it appears it has happened.
Cloud adoption is growing quickly around the world, and regional research backs this notion. Organizations like the Cloud Industry Forum, for example, show that cloud adoption in the UK alone has significantly increased, from 48 percent five years ago, to 84 percent today. On the other hand, it’s clear that barriers still remain for many. Research conducted by North Bridge and Wikibon shows that out of nearly 1,000 survey respondents, 45 percent still note security as a top cloud adoption concern, while regulatory/compliance concerns (36 percent), privacy (29 percent) and cloud vendor lock-in (26 percent) also top the list.

I keep a keen eye on commentary about business disruption, and I’m concerned that a lot of hyperbole is seeping in to the analysis about what constitutes disruptive innovation, what the impact of disruption may be to companies and employees, and what can be done to foster productive disruption.
In aggregate, the effect may be that observers assume we are in some kind of Disruption Bubble, where expectations of what disruption can bring far exceed the likely impact, and where the appetite for disruptive business strategy could disappear at any moment. The reality is that business disruption is not a fad. It is not a set of buzzwords you need to use in planning meetings, and it is not a way of positioning a brand in the marketplace.
Disruption is occurring as a direct result of a confluence of emergent technologies, changing customer needs and readily available resources, which together provide a rationale for development of a new product, or a business pivot. Organizing for digital acceleration: Making a two-speed IT operating model work. Innovators that were “born digital” as Internet companies have set the standard for delivering optimal customer experiences—that is, providing the information and platforms customers need to find and acquire products or services quickly and reliably.
Internally, they focus on agility and accelerated learning. To put this learning into action, they use organizational models empowering product managers to test and implement rapid changes that enhance engagement and increase the chances that customers will buy and come back for more. Companies such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google actively control the tempo of their IT infrastructure and have aligned their technology and production systems with their business goals.

Tempescope - Un gadget qui simule en miniature le temps qu'il fera demain. Strategy under uncertainty. At the heart of the traditional approach to strategy lies the assumption that executives, by applying a set of powerful analytic tools, can predict the future of any business accurately enough to choose a clear strategic direction for it. The process often involves underestimating uncertainty in order to lay out a vision of future events sufficiently precise to be captured in a discounted-cash-flow (DCF) analysis. When the future is truly uncertain, this approach is at best marginally helpful and at worst downright dangerous: underestimating uncertainty can lead to strategies that neither defend a company against the threats nor take advantage of the opportunities that higher levels of uncertainty provide.
Another danger lies at the other extreme: if managers can't find a strategy that works under traditional analysis, they may abandon the analytical rigor of their planning process altogether and base their decisions on gut instinct.

The "Internet of Things? " Really? That's what we are going with? I suppose, to some extent, there is a certain semantic consistency at work here, as the Internet of Things is so closely related to the "cloud" -- an even worse name for new technology, although "big data" is also up there.
