Digital Transformation and Its Impact on Cybersecurity

Posted by Justin Rowe on 6/1/17 1:10 PM

It seems like the last few years, organizations small and large have been undertaking some sort of digital transformation initiative.  This can be in the form of improving the customer experience at a physical shopping location using interactive technology or designing of new processes to optimize monitoring and performance of tasks through a mobile application.  Organizational customers, whether internal or external, can reap the benefits of using these new digital technologies to increase effectiveness and/or efficiency towards tasks being performed to produce a desired result.  Designing technology features and supporting processes that customers demand, comes with the potential of increasing risk across areas of the business that are unexpected. 

As enterprises look to become more agile and predictive, increase revenues, target new audiences and introduce new products through the performance of a digital transformation initiative, they must weigh the costs and benefits around the spectrum of Cybersecurity.  The process of continuous Cybersecurity use case development during a Digital Transformation can help enable the success of the program, protecting critical information and the technologies used to drive the transformation.

Scaled for the Enterprise – The Need for Organizational Change and Beyond

Posted by Justin Rowe on 2/8/17 12:01 PM


Last week, I had the privilege of presenting our first webinar of 2017, “Scaling for the Future – Enabling Agile Across the Enterprise”, discussing enterprise agile frameworks to include the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe).  Jana Axline, President-elect from PMI Mile Hi, joined me during this webinar and provided her insights into the methodology, its basic principles and values as well as some detail into implementing at the enterprise-level. 

Our audience ranged from PMO leaders all over the country implementing enterprise agile to those who were just curious about the SAFe product altogether.  After the webinar, I had a deep conversation with one of the attendees about his organization going through the pains of growth where multiple teams are creating software-related products, but is having difficulty grasping where and if SAFe could fit within his organization.
