The Financialization of Disruptive Technology

It's fashionable to champion an investment-oriented model for software development, particularly around exploratory opportunities. Allocate risk capital, run experiments through software, learn what works and what doesn't work, re-focus, rinse, repeat, reap rewards.

I've been a proponent of companies doing this for a very long time. It twines the notion of devolved decision making with thinking of IT as an investment rather than a cost. Invest in what you know paid off handsomely for Peter Lynch. "Continuously adjust your investment position based on what you learn" seems an apt mantra for today's world. Organize for innovation, re-acquire lost

Analytics - The Brain of the Software



An Analogy 



I am not a doctor, nor did I enjoy biology too much in my curriculum as a student.  However, I do know that the body has many organs and each organ plays a vital role in the well being of the individual.

Each organ has to:

  • function correctly (movement, senses, core functions, etc.)
  • has to perform as per expectations in different conditions the individual may be going through (walking, running, swimming, etc.)
  • has to be secure from external parameters (heat, cold, rain, what we eat / drink, etc.)
  • has to have a proper user experience (ex: if the
