Next generation Application development

The Next generation application development will not only take care of utilizing 50 or 100+ processors which will be available in you laptop or desktop or mobile but by using parallel processing available at clients

8. More pervasive BI eating App: Business Intelligence application development will go deeper in organisation Hierarchy
Oraganisation Hirearchyfrom more strategic level BI  and Middle management level to more pervasive  transactional processing level , and Office automation System level BI (shown in diagram as knowledge level or operational level.)

How it will affect architecture of Enterprise product Read SAP HANA

Understanding Management aspect to little contrary view but related.. there will be need for more deeper strategic Information system to make more unstructured decision making.

As with these products no need for separate Database for datawarehouse and for operational systems. This unification of Operational data store ODS and data warehouse DW. on reporting level both Business intelligence BI and operational reporting will be accessing same database and that will be using in Memory technology.

9. Bigdata as everyone knows is Hot: more unstructured data than structured data today present for you is like open laboratory to experiment. More of it will find place in strategic management system and Management Information system.

10. Application security will be important as never before: its already there .
The intensity can be gauged from fact that changes in top 10 OWASP list is happening as never before and positions are changing in terms of top most risk ranking.

list before:

2010 A2 was Cross site Scripting XSS but 2013 at ranking to of perceived risk is Broken Authentication and session management. Changes do happen but here ranking and no of incident changing fast because momentum is fast.
11. More will continue when I find time next time….

Strategic Information Systems will be in focus again next 5 yrs

So many business are wiped out due to Strategic Information System (SIS). SIS will be important again.

SIS is effective only when it valuable and imperfectly imitable. Sources of imperfect imitability:

1. Unique Solution

2. Patentable technology

3. Organizational Culture

4. Teamwork

5. Internal Politics

If SIS is non-imitable then competitor cannot replicate and hence cannot benefit from it.

Operational management SIS example:

American Hospital Supply inventory control system installed on customer premises

Financial management SIS example

Organizational planning must be tied to financial analysis. There is always a greater opportunity to develop strategic systems when the financial systems are in place, and required figures can be readily retrieved from them.

How SIS help in strategic competitive advantage:

  1. Lower cost with respect to Quality of product, services that will make product attractive or yield better Return on Investment ROI.
  2. Differentiations:  Deliver product or service that differentiate company. There is emotional intelligence people can feel company is doing something extra for them.
  3. Market Segment: able to provide the capabilities of defining, expanding, and filling a particular niche or segment.
  4. Innovation: greatest example is Disruptive intelligence by intel.

Cost ,differentiation are mutually exclusive.

Basic competitive forces:

  • the threat of new entrants
  • the threat of substitute products or services
  • the bargaining power of suppliers
  • the bargaining power of buyers and the intensity of the rivalry among existing competitors

The problem is to determine how a business can outperform the industry average and attain a sustainable competitive advantage .answer lies in information technology together with good management.
