Blockchain, Crypto and the New World (Tech)
Ever heard or been part of this conversation recently?
Person A: “Cardano is where it’s at, I’m telling you! I’m so over Bitcoin. It’s dull and I’m super Tesla on this.”
Person B: “Nah, I prefer Ethereum…..Eth’ all the way baby!”
Person C: “Erm….what on earth are you all on about?!”
You’ll probably find you’re one or the other or parts of all three, this is because blockchain technology, decentralised finance and crypto currencies whilst emergent, are far from mainstream. If we look at the technology adoption charts of key innovations over the last 100 years we see that blockchain, DeFi and specifically Bitcoin is at less than 10% adoption. This presents huge, huge opportunity, and also challenge in relative measure.
NWT Approach to Delivering Business Value
The world has become more digital, and businesses are increasingly using technology as a core driver to create business value through Digital Transformation, either by design or by influence, through external factors such as competition or market forces. With new business models and processes emerging constantly, our customers rely on technology for their business success more than ever before.
The problem is often describing how the technology used in the solutions will deliver a business impact and what this will mean at a business level. With today’s global problems across multiple industries, the risk in these circumstances is that organisations solely focus on the technological aspects. The industry impact and the focus on Digital Transformation is not just about the introduction of new technology but more of a fundamental rethink of the corporate model, for which digital technology is the catalyst.
PMO as a Service Whitepaper
Empower your organisation to act digitally
While many companies are ready and willing to embrace cloud, they often do not
have the skills, knowledge and experience in terms of available resources to meet this
challenge. The first step is to set up a Project Management Office to take responsibility
for managing and delivering the initiative. This NEW WORLD view looks at some of
the challenges you may face and how they can be overcome.
Normally, within the business there is one prominent department or Project Management Office (PMO) that supports major projects, ensures a consistent approach to project management throughout the organisation and is typically where standards, methodologies, processes, templates, tools and records are created and maintained. Usually this tends to be the IT department, but to be successful with Cloud deployments it may be worth considering the implementation of a PMO at an enterprise level.
A review of the popular methodologies that are impacting the way we deliver business change
This paper provides a high-level overview of the different Programme and Project Delivery methodologies used by the Information Technology community to delivery business change. Some of the methodologies get into the technical weeds of how to build a product while others focus on team management practices and leadership. Prescriptive methodologies define processes, artifacts, roles and day-to-day practices that, when applied correctly, yield a set of results that can have a great impact on products and services and the teams that build them. Other methodologies are just general philosophies or a list of principles that can be applied using different tactics.
Transition as a Service and its impact on successful Change Management
You understand the possibilities cloud offers your organisation and have decided to embrace e-commerce, digital supply chains, artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytics to increase the efficiency and innovation of your organisation. Your strategic objective is totally clear: a flexible, future proof IT landscape that will help you shift your thinking and ways of working to deliver real, sustainable business value. But how do you translate your strategy and ambitions into reality?
Every business is different with its own set of desired outcomes, drivers and risk profiles. Your transition may be a change to a new service provider or internal organisation, a new storage and backup infrastructure or a major application upgrade. You could be facing immense timeline pressures due to business risk, regulation changes, M&A, growth or supply chain issues due to a global pandemic. You could also face unexpected internal resistance that requires a change in your company culture to accept the shift. Without doubt, there will be critical business processes impacted by the changes you propose.
