It's been a while since I took a close look at Microsoft's collaboration strategy. Their latest approach to team-centered #collaboration, with supported tools connecting into the team is a smart one, and will give them the flexibility they will need to take on nimble competitors like Slack. Here's my latest analysis of what the software giant is up today to when it comes to enabling teamwork on ZDNet.

By many estimates the largest provider of enterprise collaboration tools, Microsoft's view of how to deliver effective collaboration in a complex age has been evolving of late.

+Jane McConnell's Digital Workplace Trends is a barometer for what's happening in technology and work today. Here's what's happening with the benchmark survey in 2016.
 
I have just opened the 2016 survey—The Organization in the Digital Age. I've been absent from G+ for quite a while and plan to be back more often! If you'd like to read more about the new survey, here's the best link.
What's new this year. The Core part. Join the several hundred organizations around the world in the annual tradition of exploring new ways of working and the digital workplace. This is the continuation of the annual research initiatives started in 2006. The Core part is streamlined compared to ...

New Post: The leading enterprise #intranet, portal, and #collaboration platforms for 2016 http://www.zdnet.com/article/the-leading-enterprise-intranet-portal-and-collaboration-platforms-for-2016/

My latest round-up of where the leading platforms are today.
While there is a relatively small short list of platforms suitable for large enterprise needs, two recent entrants, and some maturing contenders, are shaking things up in 2016.

How should #digitaltransformation change our orgs? In many important ways. IT has perhaps one last chance to lead this. #cloud #APIs #socbiz #bigdata #ai #IoT #cio

IT budgets are expected to increase by only 1% in 2015, during an era of unprecedented digital trasition and disruption. Is IT being given the resources to win? If it is, can it deliver?

Most executives expect significant digital disruption in the next 12 months. What key priorities does the #CIO need this year to manage this? I explore the options on ZDNet, with mentions of +Michael Krigsman's great CXO convos and the excellent industry leadership of the FCC's CIO, David Bray.

http://www.zdnet.com/article/digital-priorities-for-the-cio-in-2016/
In an era of fast change, disruptive tech, and too many priorities, what will the CIO really need to focus on this year to deliver combined technical and business leadership that will guide their organizations into the future?

The interview I did with Forbes last week was published this morning. A very kind piece by Jason Bloomberg. It explores my journey through digital and why I think we're at the most exciting -- and challenging -- place with digital right now.

Today the business world faces an inflection point, as the risk of not transforming exceeds any danger inherent in biting the bullet and jumping into digital transformation. Hinchcliffe’s clients are predictably worried.

+Simon Wardley's maps are always thought provoking and worthy of study in your work in digital.
 
What's in a map
A map has position (relative to the anchor) and the ability to show movement. In Chess, it's the position of pieces on the board and where they can move to. In geographical maps, it's the position relative to compass setting (northwest of here or in more advanced forms, GPS) and the features ...

It's now clear that IT by itself cannot enable all the technology progress and innovation that businesses require today. But the IT organization can empower vast pools of proactive enablers -- aka digital  #changeagents  --  both inside and outside the organization by providing them tools (resources kits, hackathon events, APIs, Shadow IT guidelines, etc.) needed to succeed while painting within the lines. I am now actively seeing that Centers of Excellence in some organizations are naturally morphing into this model, which I'm calling the Network of Excellence (for lack of a better term.) I believe this model will be core to scaling #digitaltransformation  in the exponential era.  #cio
