How to foster innovation by empowering your employees


At DXC we continually encourage our people to “innovate,” but how does one define innovation and what does it really mean? Personally, I think it is an overused term and one that often lacks agreement of definition. Is it any different from  “research and development,” which has traditionally been the vaguely defined term for innovative […]

How do you drive business agility with digital process transformation?


Digital transformation requires fundamental business process changes.  To transform to a “digital enterprise” and successfully compete with “digital natives” companies need a holistic approach and end-to-end business transformation, colleagues told participants in a recent DXC TechTalk. In his book The Digital Helix, Michael Gale describes how Samuel Cunard identified that the invention of the steam […]

The evolution of AI: Will it automate everything we do?

Society has been through several changes from the industrial through to the information revolution. And with each comes the inevitable question, “Are we putting ourselves out of a job?” With artificial intelligence (AI) technologies taking step-change leaps in capabilities and accuracy, there is a lot of talk about whether AI is the next “job killer.” […]

Could digital insurance as a service turn the industry upside-down?


Digital disruption has been rife in many industries – often catching established players unaware. Only with the benefit of hindsight are we able to pinpoint the turning point and appreciate how the new players changed the game. In the last few years, we have all come to know the stories of the “Ubers,” the “Amazons” […]

What is a digital core, and why do enterprises need it?

Ask a CEO which technologies his or her company must have to digitally transform the organization, and you’ll likely hear about advanced analytics and the internet of things (IoT). I’d posit that while plenty of other technologies also play vital roles, these are the keys that unlock the digital value door. But these technologies can’t […]

How Venmo and other payment sharing apps change culture


If you ask a group of 20-somethings how to split a dinner tab, you’ll get a totally different answer than you would from their boomer parents. This became readily evident in a graduate class I teach on cross-cultural communications made up mostly of international students between 21-26 years old. Just three years ago when I […]

Winning strategies for using open source and intellectual property

The terms “open source” and “intellectual property” (IP) appear, on the surface, to be opposites. The purpose of this blog is to examine this and understand how and when to use open source and IP. At the simplest level, IP in a corporation means that output created by employees is owned by the organisation, and […]

How technology helps us settle for less  


For years, an employer of mine permitted me to take an expensive well-branded limousine service to and from the airport. The cars were very nice but the price was ridiculous for the 18-mile drive. And then came Uber and Lyft. While many of the cars were nowhere near as glitzy at the coach service, there […]
