The 21st-Century Technology Leader

by Paul Clermont

Today, when everybody wants to disrupt their own or somebody else’s business, and new technologies that let them do it seem to appear almost daily, people with the “capacity to lead” are critical, and nowhere more than in the exploitation of IT. Obvious though this is, recognizing, empowering, and sustaining good IT leaders has been a challenge. People who can think strategically about what, why, and how to deploy technology but have trouble delivering it — and the reverse — fall short as IT leaders. Both skills are needed, and this edition of Cutter Business Technology Journal covers them in great depth.

Cognitive Computing: Trends, Applications, Implications

by Paul Harmon

This issue of Cutter Business Technology Journal (CBTJ) is focused on cognitive computing, a term that is similar to, but currently more popular than, artificial intelligence (AI). It refers to all those innovations in computing that are being driven by various types of AI research. Cognitive computing applications can provide superior interfaces that allow computer systems to interact with customers or employees, with the Internet or massive databases, or with computer chips embedded in almost any item you might want to track. The applications, once trained, can talk with people using ordinary language, ask questions, and then provide answers or recommendations.

Business-Driven Digital Transformation

by Whynde Kuehn

This August/September 2016 double-issue of Cutter Business Technology Journal is about change. We don’t need to read more statistics or stories about digital transformation to convince us that it is real, poses both an opportunity and a threat for our organizations, and requires us to take action now. Digital transformation is more than just a bullet point in a strategy session or the current buzzword. The visions we cast and execute upon today will likely dictate our organizations’ successes and survival in the future and collectively shape the world in which we live.
