We collected the best picks from AWS Summit Stockholm 2022. It was held on 11th May, and it was the first live event in a long time andgathered oversix thousand attendeesin the keynote session alone.
AWS re:Invent 2021 is now over and it is time to look back last week and all of the hustle and bustle. AWS re:Invent 2021 was first big conference since start of Covid-19. According to participants on-site the Covid protocol was tight and instructions given to attendee emphasised safety in every aspect.
AWS re:Invent 2021 is again over and hopefully next year it is possible to meet people again live, though I didn’t mind avoiding the jet-lag and being able to view all interesting keynotes and other presentations from my comfortable home theatre! As always, there’s tons of material waiting for watching and some of it is still waiting for being released this week. Following the keynotes and showcases I noticed some interesting trends on data and analytics. This is not a thorough coverage but rather a cherry-pick for you to enjoy.
The 10th AWS re:Invent keynote given by new CEO Adam Selipsky followed the familiar format and provided totally new services and expected updates to existing ones. No surprise that there were surprises!
The end of November 2021 and re:Invent is just around the corner, with the new hybrid setup allowing for both on-site and virtual attendance. It is AWS yearly flagship event where they launch the biggest news, and 2021 is extra special because it’s the 10th anniversary. Join Knowit and the team on-site for the best bits coming out this year!
During the fall Knowit has signed a new partnership with HashiCorp, to further strengthen their position as a key player and Nordic Powerhouse within DevOps automation and experts at Cloud Platforms and Cloud Infrastructure.
I wrote a blog post about my thoughts on Schrems II and additional safeguards. Please do not consider this as solutions but rather me guessing what possible additional safeguards are appropriate. I am trying to identify opportunities of improvement based on the complex information about Schrems II that is available right now. The key takes from this blog is to use Schrems II as an opportunity to start working risk-based and to improve the privacy by design and by default process.
Recent unexpected events, that we never could have been prepared for, have brought flexibility and agility even more to the agenda. Companies are struggling to respond to the evolving use of technology and market changes, and they have finally understood how little time there is to address these changes. The organizations of the future have been able to cope with the changed landscape while the more traditional organizations have struggled to adapt themselves in the new environment. To be able to acclimate to a new reality where consumer behaviors, supply chains, employee needs, as well as legal and government requirements play an important role, companies must consider strategy development as part of their operating business. Again, market changes do not wait for the next strategic planning cycle. If your organization does not change accordingly in time, it may be too late and the rivals in the marketplace will gain advantages and steal your market shares. Therefore, there is a need to replace the classic strategy project to an iterative strategy process with faster feedback loops. In this article, we will present an iterative strategy framework that enables you to cope with the ever-changing environment.
It is no longer news that the rapid development and increasing maturity of technology in recent years have impacted all industries and redefined how business is made. However, many companies are still struggling with how to make use of this new technology, be it to innovate new products, create new business models, generate new revenue streams, ensure operational efficiency or simply just keep up with competition. This article deals with what should be (but isn’t always) considered an important part of the foundation, or the core, of a digital business, namely the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. Without this “digital core” in place, innovation efforts tend to become more cumbersome and eventually risk becoming futile. Regardless of how mature your digital core is today, a proper ERP strategy is always a key component of your organization’s strategic plans to be able support the business tomorrow.
