New Directions for Digital Products (1 of 2)

digital technologies

We already crossed Agriculture, Industrial, Information age. Now we are in digitization age. Many companies investing huge money on digitization.
  • Mphasis - is betting on digitization of Financial institutions
  • Tech Mahindra - started research on Heath care digitization
  • Infosys - focusing on Automation and artificial intelligence
  • TCS - focussing on Machine learning
  • WIPRO - is focusing on Big data and Hadoop
What is digitization

What we mean by digital. Digital data is distinguished from analog data in that the datum is represented in discrete, discontinuous values, rather than the continuous, wavelike values of analog. Thus, the digitization of data refers to the conversion of information into binary code, allowing for more efficient transmission and storage of data.
A key differentiator of our current age from prior human history is that, as of the last decade, we not only convert data to a digital format, but we also create data in a digital format. Thus, we now have the digital product, a concept defined by Scupola (2005) as "a product whose complete value chain can be implemented with the use of electronic networks. It can be produced and distributed electronically, and paid for electronically".
Since its inception, the Internet has continued to change the game for IT and allows business to meet today's "qualitative and quantitative diversification of demand".

Once hidden behind corporate walls and offering immense competitive advantages that could be leveraged into profitability, technology is now openly accessible on the Internet.

Competitors--even small start-ups--can adopt it and level the playing field. As a result, technology itself no longer offers competitive advantage and higher profit. Instead, the way it is applied to or combined with new information or technologies (i.e., the network effect) creates advantage and profitability.

Internet

  • Not surprisingly, the same evolution has occurred with digital products, as they are the result of the application of technology.
  • The Internet now makes the production and distribution of digital products available to a wide audience, whether regulated or not. "We have all become potential publishers". The material we publish may be our original work, a copy of someone else's work, or a combination of the two with virtually no formal quality control.
Insights to develop digital products:
  1. Digital products from a Resource Perspective
  2. Value Creation in Production and Distribution
  3. Integrating User-generated Content (UGC)
  4. Quality Assessment and User Perceptions
  5. Regulation and Monetization

Topologies in Apache Storm the concept you need to know

There are two main reasons why Apache Storm is so popular. The number one is it can connect to many sources. The number two is scalable. The other advantage is fault tolerant. That means, guaranteed data processing.
The map-reduce jobs process the data analytics in Hadoop. The topology in Storm is the real data processor. The co-ordination between Nimbus and Supervisor carried by Zookeeper What are topologiesThe jobs in Hadoop are similar to topology. The jobs run as per schedule defined.In Storm, the topology runs forever.A topology consists of many worker processes spread across many machines. A topology is a pre-defined design to get end product using your data.A topology comprises of 2 parts. These are Spout and bolts.The Spout is a funnel for topology Two nodes in StormMaster Node: similar to Hadoop job tracker. It runs on a daemon called Nimbus.Worker Node: It runs on a daemon called Supervisor. The Supervisor listens to the work assigned to each machine.Master NodeNimbus is re…

Three popular RPA tools functional differences

Robotic process automation is growing area and many IT developers across the board started up-skill in this popular area. I have written this post for the benefit of Software developers who are interested in RPA also called Robotic Process Automation.

In my previous post, I have described that total 12 tools are available in the market. Out of those 3 tools are most popular. Those are Automation anywhere, BluePrism and Uipath. Many programmers asked what are the differences between these tools. I have given differences of all these three RPA tools.

BluePrismBlue Prism has taken a simple concept, replicating user activity on the desktop, and made it enterprise strength. The technology is scalable, secure, resilient, and flexible and is supported by a comprehensive methodology, operational framework and provided as packaged software.The technology is developed and deployed within a “corridor of IT governance” and has sophisticated error handling and process modelling capabilities to ensu…
