Re: Easy requirement As I reread the article again I was struck by the advice that we will "need to understand that this will be a work in progress so there will be bugs and things to fix." How true that is, and there's a never ending journey as we transform all things in the digital world. And also noting that "much of what needs to transform in our digital world has more to do with transforming people," than all other things. How we think and react to that transformation will be a key to success or failure.

Re: Technology GE of course is an example of a company who started with one sector and expanded to many often seemingly unrelated businesses instead of keeping to a narrow focus. Whether smaller and medium size companies can achieve the move to technology, orienting planning and services in that directions may be a function of getting the right mix of funding and management expertise to lead them.

Re: Easy requirement On the other hand, it's hard to imagine companies not wanting to write down business requirements someplace.

Re: Technology I see it more holistically.  If everybody's in the business of technology, nobody's in the business of technology.

It's just something you do now -- like marketing, sales, etc..

All of those things require investment and innovation, sure, but ultimately, everything still comes back to the business.

Re: Easy requirement The problem, though, is that you don't want coders abandoning documentation and comments -- because otherwise that completely screws up your DevOps down the line.

Easy requirement I think it will be very easy to get companies to abandon "the idea of documenting every single business requirement before writing a line of code." Documentation seems to make for a ready orphan.

Re: Technology @danielcawrey That's a really great point about how all companies are now basically in the business of technology and how technology is really driving what business does. If you look at a GE, they have really shifted from a company that made goods, to a giant capital fund that loaned out money, to one that is now involved in IoT and Cloud. I'd say they are the #1 example of a company undergoing a digital transformation.

Technology This makes a ton of sense. 

I think all companies today are inherently technology companies, and throwing things over the fence to IT doesn't work anymore. Just look at organizations like GE, which have said they are indeed a tech company today.
