  • “David Cearley, vice president and Gartner Fellow, wrote that promises of artificial intelligence (AI) magically performing intellectual tasks that humans do and dynamically learning as much as humans is “speculative at best.” However with 2018 rapidly approaching, AI is clearly on the minds of many businesses. Where are businesses practically applying AI in their digital workplaces?”

  • “For years now, hand-wringing executives in the retail sector, nervously eyeing Amazon, have been able to point to their own retail stores as potential strategic weapons. For all the well-documented challenges and economic pressures of managing brick-and-mortar locations, shopping trends and consumer spend still favored the store. After all, some 80 percent of purchases are expected to still happen in stores in 2020.”

  • “We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. We do not yet know just how it will unfold, but one thing is clear: the response to it must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders of the global polity, from the public and private sectors to academia and civil society.”

  • “Digital technologies such as analytics, mobility, social networks, cloud computing and the Internet of Things are making old ways of working redundant and forcing companies to transform. According to Raman Sapra, global head of Dell’s digital business services, the best way to leverage digital is to take a comprehensive rather than a piecemeal approach. And a key tool to achieve this is customer journey mapping, where powerful new data collection and analytics tools are helping to provide deeper insights to fuel performance. In this paper, experts from Wharton and Dell examine how this mapping is at the heart of digital transformation.”

  • “Dai nuovi dati 2015 pubblicati da Eurostat non si rilevano progressi significativi. L’effetto della spinta sul Digital Single Market non si vede ancora, le PMI sono ancora fortemente in ritardo e ci sono aree in cui il digitale non è ancora una leva di crescita. L’Italia fa timidi progressi, ma le politiche e i programmi in atto non sembrano ancora sufficienti per guardare ad un recupero tangibile già nel 2016”

  • “Sebastiano Carpentieri è forse il più longevo innovatore italiano in tema di smart working. Già, perché questo imprenditore, che oggi ha 82 anni, alla fine del 1974 ha avuto l’intuizione di aprire il primo business center d’Italia. Un business center è un luogo in cui ufficio, scrivania, segretaria, sala riunioni, e molti altri servizi, non appartengono al singolo lavoratore ma vengono semplicemente dati in uso a professionisti e team aziendali con diverse formule.”
