The rapid spread of cloud computing, wireless broadband networks, IoT, and smartphones has created the infrastructure that enables real-time connectivity for billions of people and billions of things all around the world. Social media changed the way companies and customers interact, now IoT is changing the way companies deliver products and services. And in the process something is emerging that is greater than the sum of its parts. Just as our bodies are composed of billions of individual cells talking to each other; something new is emerging as billions of us start talking with each other and with the billions of things we use.

Supply Chains for the Real-Time Economy [Agile, Responsive and Robust]

Supply chains have gone from poor cousin to high strategy in many companies. As the relatively stable and predictable economy of the last century recedes and is replaced by an ever more fast-paced and unpredictable economy, the role of supply chains is central to a company’s...

Supply chains have gone from poor cousin to high strategy in many companies. As the relatively stable and predictable economy of the last century recedes and is replaced by an ever more fast-paced and unpredictable economy, the role of supply chains is central to a company’s ability to survive and thrive. Apple is an example of what responsive supply chains can do to deliver innovation and competitive advantage. Look at Amazon’s move into air freight and same day delivery, and the spread of 3D printing and Uber. These are all examples of using real-time supply chains to create agile businesses that respond and adjust moment to moment as situations change. That’s how companies succeed in the real-time economy.

How IoT, Real-Time Visibility and Massively Multiplayer Online Games can Save Us and the Planet

As we push up against the limits of what our world’s ecosystems can handle, our actions and their results follow each other ever more closely, with consequences that are ever more severe when things go wrong. How do we learn to balance our actions with what our planet can ...

As we push up against the limits of what our world’s ecosystems can handle, our actions and their results follow each other ever more closely, with consequences that are ever more severe when things go wrong. How do we learn to balance our actions with what our planet can sustain? Perhaps the answer is creative use of technology and practices already available and rapidly spreading to every part of the globe. Perhaps we can learn by using real-time simulations to explore different approaches to economic, social and ecological problems. And when we find what works best in simulations, maybe we can make it happen in the real world by including billions of people in goal-seeking feedback loops driven by transparent rules and rewards (AKA massively multiplayer online games).
