gartner-bi-03-2016

I had an opportunity to attend this year Gartner Summit in London. Here is an exert of the Keynote: Gartner’s Top Predictions: The Future Is a Digital Thing

Gartner Description:

This session highlights the most critical predictions for the near- and long-term future. The effect of digital business has pushed many companies into more risky decisions. But, opportunities will arise to make the risk worth considering. Technologies such as the Internet of Things and smart machines will make the future a “digital thing.”

Session Summary:

An excellent session that provided lot of insight into what Gartner thinks about the future. In summary, they are:

  1. By 2018, 20% of all business content will be authored by machines
  2. By 2018, 6 billion connected things will be requesting support
  3. By 2020, autonomous software agents outside of human control will participate in 5% of all economic transactions
  4. By 2018, more than 3 million workers globally will be supervised by a “roboboss”
  5. By 2018, 50% of the fastest-growing companies will have fewer employees than instances of smart machines
  6. By year end 2018, customer digital assistants will recognize individuals by face and voice across channels and partners
  7. By 2018, 2 million employees will be required to wear health and fitness tracking devices as a condition of employment
  8. By 2020, smart agents will facilitate 40% of mobile interactions, and the post-app era will begin to dominate
  9. Through 2020, 95%of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault

Some of the above are already happening on the ground. Overall, interesting days are ahead for BI.

Indian Origin MPs and Vote Patterns in UK

A record number of 10 Indian-origin candidates including Keith Vaz, Priti Patel and Infosys cofounder Narayana Murthy’s son-in-law were elected to the British parliament on Friday, 8th May 2015.

Indian-origin voters have traditionally connected more with Labour due to its working class and immigrant friendly outlook, however the elections in 2015 seem to indicate a strong shift in favour of the Tory party.

There were total of 46,425,386 voters excreting their rights in the UK general election. It will take a while for the data on ethnic minority voting pattern to come out however it will be interesting to see where the shift has been.

In 2010 general election, white voters turnout was 67% and non-white voter turnout was 51%. Labours got 60% of the non white votes, Liberal Democrats got 20% and Conservatives managed to get only 16% of the non white vote share. I think this time around in the 2015 general election, expecting a significant chunk of non-white vote share going to Conservatives.

Paid Journalism

Today, I must admit, I hate to watch these Indian private news channels. There are number of news channels these days trying to sensationalise small incidents trying to project as if something big has happened and going to happen. One of this example is on Church attacks in India these days. I am seeing number of news channels reporting these happenings on a day today basis. I am not arguing here that reporting these incidents is wrong but what is happening in most of these cases is that most of the journalists try to link these incidents to other communal related incidents such as “Ghar Vapsi”, statements given by hardliners etc etc.  Recently, Indian finance minister made it very clear that the those church incidents are mainly related to law and order but the media failed to highlight the factual instead kept reporting on communal lines.

Even today, I was shocked to see a tweet from a leading news daily criticising PM’s speech in Canada to a bizarre analysis of happenings in India. Well, the indian public know that these things do happen and it was happening even when the earlier government was in power. But to project them as a negative sentiment, giving a different twist – isn’t it a paid journalism? Think for yourself….

 

Happy New Year!

May this year bring new happiness, new goals, new achievements and a lot of new inspirations on your life. Wishing you an year fully loaded with happiness!!
