The 2020’s Enterprise with Sam Holcman

The 2020’s Enterprise is about sorting through the internet-driven advice madness that exists in business today. The great thing about the internet is that anyone can write anything about anything. The problem with the internet is that anyone can write anything about anything! Published practices are quite different than “best practices.” This program will provide practice-based insights in business transformation, organizational transformation and technology transformation, based on real world practices. Business executives, managers, practitioners, and staff are bombarded daily with utopian solutions that more often than not deliver significantly less than promised. This show is “no jargon,” just human communication. Be treated like a “customer” not a “user.” Our philosophy is to provide you with insights that can provide true value to organizations and individuals that face today’s and tomorrow’s competitive pressures, and provide a usable takeaway from each program....

This emerging reality does not begin with a new technology. Technology may enable what we refer to as a series of business and mis...

My guest on today’s episode of The 2020’s Enterprise with Sam Holcman is Ken Metviner. Ken has a very interesting and fresh perspective on the what the future holds as we move out of the most current crisis we are in. Yes, as I state, this will unfortunately, not be the last crisis, and perhaps we should look at consumer behavior with a bit more logic than just believe it is a “random walk”. Ken will outline a perspective that w...

Technology has changed the way companies deliver their marketing message but has not changed basic marketing principles. Customer data is the most valuable asset a company has. Customers use reviews as a way of deciding which company to do business with. Consumers expect an instant and friction-less experience with the companies they do business with. Data and customer information allow companies to hyper-target their marketing...

In this unique view of distance learning, we will be speaking with three college students, from three different universities, on their personal experiences in this, in some cases very new learning environment. School closures have led educational institutions everywhere to scramble to move instruction to an online format. It is unfortunate, that once again, proper planning seems to have given way to crisis management and implemen...

The cloud is often discussed as offering the potential for better technology and business agility, but moving computing resources has two sides. The benefits are often mentioned and discussed. Some information technology leaders are learning that running certain applications in the cloud can cost more than doing so on-premises, and can add complexity and security concerns not fully appreciated in the “rush” to the cloud, leading ...

What triggered my thoughts in developing this Episode was YAF. What is YAF? YAF is Yet Another Framework! What I am referring to is a consortium of academics, industry, and government people that, I am sure with upright and thoughtful intentions, published YAF on enterprise architecture. This YAF was going to take all of the other YAF’s and bring them all together. As a veteran of Enterprise Architecture and frameworks, all I ...

We have all turned, to some degree, to a short-term focus in both our personal and business lives. We all have to deal with reality. The question is how do you address both short and longer term issues and opportunities. In the short term, we need to identify areas for optimization, while understanding the effects of this optimization in future operations. The question is can we use a “scalpel”, rather than a “meat clever” to i...

What we in organizations are doing is processing data. Technology departments in organizations have many names nowadays.

Cloud Management is an area that is just beginn...

Our EACOE Enterprise Architecture practice has looked at security as part of Enterprise Architecture, not as a separate activity. Simply, the objective is ensuring only authorized access to a process or a data component. Starting with this objective – not after the fact – is key. In the physical world, look at the game-changer brought about by the Ring doorbell – warn me before someone enters the house, rather than telling me so...

Have you looked at your “smart phone” and its “agility” – your ability to change what you see with a simple press on the screen, and compared it to your internal technology systems or those that you provide to your customers? In summary, what you are seeing is a manufacturing concept called Mass Customization. This term was first introduced to the public by Stan Davis in his book Future Perfect in 1987. Customer-focused means ju...

You want to know what your end state objective is and how to get there. No one wants to be lectured to for hours on frameworks, and methodologies, and so-called best practices. You want to be able to clearly identify a set of mutually exclu...
