• Why the Organisation of Tomorrow comes with Great Responsibility

    The organisation of tomorrow will be built around data using emerging technologies. Big data analytics empowers consumers and employees. This will result in real-time decision making and a better understanding of the changing environment. Blockchain enables peer-to-peer collaboration and trustless interactions governed by cryptography and smart contracts. Meanwhile, artificial intelligence allows for new and different levels of intensity and involvement among human and artificial actors. When big data analytics, blockchain and AI are combined, it will change collaboration among individuals,[...]

    The Organisation of Tomorrow – Available Now!

    Earlier this year, I completed my PhD at the University of Technology Sydney. My research focused on how do emerging information technologies change the interaction of organisations and technologies. The title of my research was: Sociomateriality in the age of Emerging Information Technologies: How big data analytics, blockchain and artificial intelligence affect organisations. Undertaking a PhD was a great experience and an intellectual challenge. However, academic dissertations are dry and difficult to read. Therefore, I turned my thesis into an easy-to-read-and-digest management book, [...]

    The internet was envisaged as a decentralised global network, but in the past 25 years, it has come to be controlled by a few, very powerful, centralised companies. Blockchain is a technological paradigm shift that allows secure, reliable, and direct information transfer between individuals, organisations, and things, so that we can manage, verify, and control the use of our own data. Blockchain also offers a new opportunity for humanity to fix some major problems. It can authenticate data, manage its analysis, and automate its use. With better data comes better decision-making. In this[...]

    From purchasing transactions, to chatter from social networks, to web server logs, to satellite imagery, to traffic flow sensors, it's estimated that we now create--every two days --as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization up until 2003. What's more, it's expected that the amount of data currently available will double every two years world­wide as virtually everything becomes digitized. The insights provided by Big Data--the massive volume of information too complex and dynamic to be able to process, store, analyze, and man­age with traditional data tools--enable [...]
