Like icebergs, only a small percentage of an enterprise is visible. The greater mass that shapes and drives the enterprise and is essential in keeping the enterprise afloat, its knowledge or core competency, is hidden behind the scene.
Core competency is what distinguishes Roche from Novartis or Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) from Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS).
We are losing our enterprise knowledge through our ageing approach to software technology.
Everyone is talking about 4th industrial revolution; using technology to take us to the next level. But, software technology must first be modernised before embarking on this new journey.
If we don’t act now our enterprises, like the melting icebergs, will continue to crumble and eventually collapse; impacting our world’s interwoven economy.
For 150 years people have been debating IF global warming truly exists. Let’s hope the discussion around the need for sustainable technology doesn’t take as long.
The time is now. We need to lay a new foundation for technology. In our technology-dependent world, to achieve sustainability, we need to start with sustainable technology.
Let’s talk and collaborate to build a better future,
