This book is, as indicated by the subtitle, intended in the first place for executives and managers. But actually its is essential reading for all who are faced with digital transformation. It offers a valuable reflection on knowledge developed and experience accumulated in daily practice, focusing on the approach to contemporary digital business challenges. Written in understandable language and with a powerful, logical structure, it has become a very accessible book that remains fascinating from beginning to end. It teaches you to understand topics that matter such as the need for digital transformation, the connection with business strategy and the essential differences in starting positions between organizations. What to do next is made concrete and practical by identifying five necessary digital breakthroughs and working them out into clear goals, which should be included in the change cycle as part of your digital strategy. The phase model presented includes three distinct steps - from product focus in the first phase to customer orientation in the second phase, followed by a third phase in which the customer is at the center. The book describes what is required to take these steps - the checklist that is included provides organizations with direction. This helps in setting up a strategy and developing an effective roadmap for organizations to transform. “The book 'Successful Digital Transformation' reads like a modern fairy tale. It's clever how the essence of the field of digital transformation is captured in barely 100 pages. But the theme has also been made very practical, the underlying topics (such as data management, enterprise architecture, change management) have been tied together and explained in a comprehensible way. I think the book fills a great need, because many books and articles on this topic are either full of buzzwords that are not further described, or lapse into academic jargon that is incomprehensible to the average reader. This book sits nicely between academia and practice, without falling into compromises.” – Frank Harmsen - Associate Professor of Digital Transformation, Maastricht University

A vortex mixer, or vortexer, is a simple device used commonly in laboratories to mix small vials of liquid. It consists of an electric motor with the drive shaft oriented vertically and attached to a cupped rubber piece mounted slightly off-center. As the motor runs the rubber piece oscillates rapidly in a circular motion. When a test tube or other appropriate container is pressed into the rubber cup (or touched to its edge) the motion is transmitted to the liquid inside and a vortex is created. Most vortex mixers have variable speed settings and can be set to run continuously, or to run only when downward pressure is applied to the rubber piece. This ebook by Peter Paker will give a brief explanation on vortex mixer, for more information visit:

Required reading for anyone interested in the profound relationship between digital technology and society Digital technology has become an undeniable facet of our social lives, defining our governments, communities, and personal identities. Yet with these technologies in ongoing evolution, it is difficult to gauge the full extent of their societal impact, leaving researchers and policy makers with the challenge of staying up-to-date on a field that is constantly in flux. The Oxford Handbook of Digital Technology and Society provides students, researchers, and practitioners across the technology and social science sectors with a comprehensive overview of the foundations for understanding the various relationships between digital technology and society. Combining robust computer-aided reviews of current literature from the UK Economic and Social Research Council's commissioned project "Ways of Being in a Digital Age" with newly commissioned chapters, this handbook illustrates the upcoming research questions and challenges facing the social sciences as they address the societal impacts of digital media and technologies across seven broad categories: citizenship and politics, communities and identities, communication and relationships, health and well-being, economy and sustainability, data and representation, and governance and security. Individual chapters feature important practical and ethical explorations into topics such as technology and the aging, digital literacies, work-home boundary, machines in the workforce, digital censorship and surveillance, big data governance and regulation, and technology in the public sector. The Oxford Handbook of Digital Technology and Society will equip readers with the necessary starting points and provocations in the field so that scholars and policy makers can effectively assess future research, practice, and policy.

Deliver enterprise data analytics success by following Prashanth’s prescriptive and practical techniques. Today, organizations across the globe are looking at ways to glean insights from data analytics and make good business decisions. However, not many business enterprises are successful in data analytics. According to Gartner, 80% of analytics programs do not deliver business outcomes. Mckinsey consulting says, less than 20% of the companies have achieved analytics at scale. So, how can a business enterprise avoid analytics failure and deliver business results? This book provides ten key analytics best practices that will improve the odds of delivering enterprise data analytics solutions successfully. It is intended for anyone who has a stake and interest in deriving insights from data analytics. The three key differentiating aspects of this book are: · Practicality. This book offers prescriptive, superior, and practical guidance. · Completeness. This book looks at data analytics holistically across the four key data analytics domains - data management, data engineering, data science, and data visualization. · Neutrality. This book is technologically agnostic and looks at analytics concepts without any reference to commercial analytics products and technologies. Dr. Southekal proves why he is one of the leading thinkers on data and analytics today. ‘Analytics Best Practices’ is an indispensable guide for business leaders and those looking to get into the analytics field on the nuances, challenges, and immense opportunities with data.

Purpose: Strategic management has been developing in business theory and practice for over 50 years. Presently, it constitutes the main area of research interest in management science. The contemporary conditions of business operations create new challenges for strategic management, such as the use of dynamic capabilities in strategy building, relational strategies, networking of organizations, technology development and automation of processes, and global strategies. These challenges are often referred to as neostrategic management. The purpose of this publication is to present the findings of research concerning new strategic management concepts and challenges. Methodology: The main research method of this article was a narrative literature review. On the basis of the research, the development of the concepts as well as contemporary trends and challenges of strategic management were characterized. There is also a synthesis of the problems and research results presented in the articles in this special issue of JEMI. Findings: Various schools and approaches to strategy formulation have been created. They indicate different factors that allow for success in strategic management such as: setting long-term goals, selection of programs and their execution plans (planning school); connection of the enterprise with the environment (evolutionary school); focusing attention on competitive advantage and achieved performance (position-based school); focus on one’s own resources and competences (resource school); use of opportunities and creating innovation (simple rules school); selection of the best option and orientation in business management (real options school); or eclectic perspectives, integrating the listed approaches. The strategic management concept has two dimensions. The first dimension is related to the emergence of subsequent, new strategic management concepts, which often hark back to the previous schools and approaches. The second dimension of development applies to operationalization and adjustment of the previous concepts to the changing conditions. Implications for theory and practice: The paper characterizes the research results presented in the articles included in this JEMI issue. They deal with various problems and challenges in the field of strategic management, such as the relationship between market dynamics, market orientation and performance of enterprises; the innovativeness of companies as a contemporary strategic orientation of companies; the strategy implementation and the management of the organization change; problems of strategic management of the development of the city. Originality and value: The problems presented in the study relate to challenges and new concepts in strategic management. They enrich the existing knowledge on the development of strategic management, and also create inspiration for further research in this area. Keywords: evolution of the strategic management concept, neostrategic management, strategy implementation success, market dynamism, strategic management of cities, innovation strategy.

Digitization and Artificial Intelligence are at the center of every board room conversation these days. Most CEOs, senior management and boards are less worried about their traditional competitors. The impact of disruption through digitization is real and quantifiable – 52% of Fortune 500 companies have been replaced since 2000. The task of enabling new digital business models gets exponentially harder as the complexity of systems are greater. Most CIOs, CTOs are struggling with when to start, what to do, and how to meet the expectations of their CEOs and Boards. Design patterns help narrow this gap by documenting a well-working solution to a problem that occurs repeatedly in a given context. “Enterprise Digitization Patterns” breaks down digital disruption enablers and delivers a cookbook across three key pillars – Digital Experience, Enterprise IoT and Autonomous Systems. The book provides reference architectures, design patterns, maturity models and practical case studies to drive new forms of customer value, business outcomes and business models. The design patterns are distinct or relevant to modern-day enterprise digital platforms that enables enterprise digital business models.
