    by Jeremiah Owyang, Tech Analyst The 2020 Consumer Electronics Show provided a utopian view of what the future could be like – but the seasoned attendee knows that only a fraction of these products will come to fruition – and for those, wide adoption will take years. Additionally, not all that glitters is gold, there are some pitfalls that both consumers and companies need to be wary of such as “data leakage” as sensors and devices become cheap and accessible — we don’t know where that data is going.  As a tech analyst, I just returned from my annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show to identify the trends that will matter to business over the next … Continue readingCES 2020: Finding Reality in a Sea of Utopia

    Please see above embedded YouTube recording, or access directly, of an interview I recently completed with my long term friend Marshall Kirkpatrick who leads Analyst/Influencer Relations at Sprinklr. We discussed my take on the Six Digital Eras, Tech Wellness, and how businesses will respond to these future trends. I’ve really enjoyed how our careers have intertwined from the early days of social media to how digital has impacted companies in every role and department. A few of the resources I cited: Six Digital Eras, and my posts on Modern Wellbeing. Photo from Pexels

    Phases of Digital Transformation Maturity: from Stunted Awareness to Sustained Vitality 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ec/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77
    By Jeremiah Owyang, Jessica Groopman and Jaimy Szymanski. Digital transformation has become a top priority to many companies, yet to provide clarity to an overused term, we published a definition and now share a maturity framework with descriptors. We define digital transformation as: a technological, cultural, and operational shift in which organizations leverage data to deliver customer value, innovate with agility, and sustain vitality.  The final word of this definition is the end state: “vitality”. This suggests the organization is architected to be proactive and foster new business growth both internally and externally across an ecosystem of customers, partners, and beyond.  So how do companies get to vitality? As a research firm, we’ve conducted over 200 interviews over the last … Continue readingPhases of Digital Transformation Maturity: from Stunted Awareness to Sustained Vitality

    (Re)Defining Digital Transformation in a Data-driven Era 


    Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: invalid range in character class at offset 7 in /homepages/23/d339537987/htdocs/ec/wp-content/themes/p2/inc/mentions.php on line 77
    Digital Transformation Defined

    If you’ve read the myriad definitions of digital transformation and thought they sounded a decade old, you’re right. Many of the definitions, while certainly appropriate at the time, were focused on digitization over transformation (aka turning paper into PDFs). As a result, the definitions have become either too narrowly scoped or rich with meaningless buzzwords. 

    At Kaleido Insights, we think it’s time to refine the definition of digital transformation to better reflect the data-driven era we find ourselves in. We’ve interviewed scores of business and technology leaders to gather inputs, as well as engaged in discussion on social media. The result is a working definition (read: it will keep evolving!) that speaks to the modern-day innovator’s charter: 

    Digital Transformation:
    A technological, cultural, and operational shift in which organizations leverage data to deliver customer value, innovate with agility, and sustain vitality.
    -Kaleido Insights, 2019

    We specifically focused on the changes that are happening to culture inside of an organization as a result of disruptive, data-rich technology adoption across the ecosystem. In our body of research around corporate innovation, the employee mindset and the way people work was the core aspect that needed to change for digital transformation to be successful. 

    We also focused more on data vs. point technologies, as it is truly the driving force behind digital transformation’s value to customers and employees alike. After analyzing how companies are pushing to lead their market, it became apparent that they were striving to maintain vitality, a word that aptly describes strength, being active, energy, and continuance of life.

    We want to hear from you. Does this definition speak to what you’re trying to achieve along the digital transformation journey? We’ll continually revisit this definition to ensure it encapsulates the goals and experiences of change agents like you.

    And, if you need help in digitally transforming, we’re here for that too. We work with companies on their digital transformation efforts, through our advisory work, our Digital Directive research service, and thought-provoking speeches. Contact us today.
