Purpose: Business Opportunities Under Technology Constraint
Starting from a business model inspired by Coase and justifying technology choices based on an interplay of business cases, economics and systems constraints. An emphasis on a changing job description for management to include responsibility for analytics, data governance and process modeling. Highlighting the domain of simulation and executive-enablement through war-room style dashboarding. Systems theory as background. New business models as foreground. And a valorization of the autonomous human actor, and possibly adding autonomous machine actors, as key modeled system participants. Specification of work as the subject of business.
About The Website & Welcome
Welcome! My name is John Morris and this website is all about a business revolution enabled by technology, including especially technology around "BPO", "BPM", "data services" and "presentation".
"Revolution" is a big word. But revolution is a fair description of what's happening on both the business side and the technology side of the equation. On the business side we are seeing the development of new business models, most notably involving business process outsourcing (BPO) and agency services. And on the technology side, the levers of process, big data and presentation options provide unlimited opportunity.
Using journalism as my model, I want to share what I learn about the potential, the successes, the reality and the dysfunctions of this new technology-enabled business world. And luckily, my role as a front-line sales person and evangelist for business technology-based projects gives me a great perspective "at the rock face". In addition to that bottom-up perspective, I'm also able to attend both industry and academic conferences, which along with wide reading and conversation provides the theory that helps make sense of daily practice.
My goal is to provide useful information for executives that need to make strategic choices about business organization and business models. Technology is the lever about which I write; but the context is business need, systems theory, industrial organization and some economics.
Why not start exploring how you can use new process, data and presentation technologies now? I hope you'll find some insights here to add to your own.
Keep your finger on the pulse of business and technology for process, data and presentation! New items are announced via Twitter by JohnHMorris.
