We have a confusing amount of collaboration platforms at present (sharepoint, yammer, slack, workplace in ANZ). Any thoughts on the future of collaboration within DXC?
Chris Fangmann
I love multitasking on all of those :)
Arin Dey
You missed Skype here.. really confusing..
Graham Chastney
is it really that confusing?
Nigel Barron
@ArinDey Thanks for reminding me ;-)
Will Kelly
Which is the best to Blog?
Chris Nokkentved
the strategy to track collaboration as well as decision making is to OFFLOAD all information in one repository, then TAG it (if not already done!) and then start analyzing it with ML. There must be a purpose or use case to streamline the info
Dan Hushon
right tool for the right community IMO, but they need to cross integrate more (ala... crowd chat that enables multiple social networks)
Max Hemingway
@wkelly24 External - DXC Blogs https://blogs.dxc.te... Internal - I use Sharepoint blogs at the moment
lewis richards
@GrahamChastney I just go where the people I want to interact with are, consolidation never works
Marc Wilkinson
challenge is ALL these are necessary because right one based on WHO you collaborate with
Graham Chastney
@stroker Consolidation will never work whilst there are people involved. :-)
Faisal Siddiqi
+1 for Slack - real time collaboration within and without
Marc Wilkinson
@stroker exactly ... anybody remember Google Wave??
lewis richards
@M3Wilkinson I loved Google Wave, that was ahead of its time
Marc Wilkinson
@stroker and ... IMHO... still ahead
Nigel Barron
@Faisal_Siddiqi Is Slack a recognised and approved DXC app?
lewis richards
i'll confess that @lefep i've pretty much got my entire world now working in MS Teams
Daniel Spithout
@stroker Remember that Giana Trapani actually wrote a How to book on Google Wave .... just when she released it, they closed Wave.....
Nigel Barron
@stroker MS Teams! Another one!
Arin Dey
Though I use all of them but I would like to get Skype for business with other O365 tool integration. That would be enough I guess. #Skype
Faisal Siddiqi
in the absence of of a working solution smart people will find one :-) #renegadeaction #allfemaledinosaurs
Bob Slook
It's not about the tools. It's about the people.
lewis richards
in #21stCenturyHuman workshops we play collaboration bingo, ask delegates to list out all collab apps, then look how many did you use in last 24 hrs? How many in last week? How many did work mandate? Then we typically discover its all Whatsapp
Will Kelly
I think it's both. People will connect with a tool, but to get the attention of those who could benefit requires an integrated tool set.
Graham Chastney
@stroker I use more work related apps on my iPhone than on my laptop...
Marc Wilkinson
@bslook YES. ever tried Collaborating on you own?
Will Kelly
@stroker Do you have a consolidated view of your findings? Interesting to see a visual on this.
Graham Chastney
@bslook Yes, yes, yes...and by people I hope you mean teams.
Graham Chastney
@ganeshwrite Not if by "zero in" you mean "only use"...there is never going to be a one tool answer to collaboration.
lewis richards
@wkelly24 Only as outputs from our various workshops, its pretty much always the same, if you have 10 delegates you'll have at least 25-30 collab apps, a minority of which are work provided and the main tool for chat is Whatsapp at present
Lisa Braun
@wkelly24 Sharepoint has a blog feature but I don't know details. If you mean external blogging, though, it's http://blogs.dxc.tec... (see me!)
Lisa Braun
@wkelly24 Right, for blogging space, echoing what others have said, depends on who/where your audience is.
Dan Hushon
@LisaAnneBraun so this brings me back to my first tweet @csc namely - where's search and why cannot i find relevant stuff faster
Nigel Barron
@DanHushon DXC doesn't know what DXC knows
Jason Campion
@danhushon I think your point about the use of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence was good, organisations may not be ready for full ML/AI capability and automation but take a progressive stance, use insight gained from these technologies first
Nigel Welham
Using maybe some small and 'safe' prototype to show its not harmful for more conservative customers?
Jerry Overton
@nigelwelham I'd take this even further and say that *all* of AI should be adopted and scaled based on small experiments
Marc Wilkinson
successful implementation of ML or AI shouldn't mean the inner workings are visible. AI/ML can enable compelling experiences and real-time insight that delivers outcomes without ever being exposed to the user (or organization)
Chris Fangmann
Success is with acceptance of AI => Good experience with initially AI only suggesting decisions, human has to confirm => build trust => further automation with full user agreement & support
Jerry Overton
@M3Wilkinson I agree. I think of it as the "utility" approach to #AI-- sophisticated functionality, simple, convenient interfaces.
Dan Hushon
I'm not saying go "full autonomous" at this point, but do suggest that machines find edges ("outliers") better than people do
lewis richards
@JerryAOverton I look for examples in the everyday, how many people use NLP in Google sheets to 'ask' questions of the data rather than building functions themselves for instance?
Marc Wilkinson
@stroker how many actually know they CAN?
lewis richards
@M3Wilkinson This is what I spend my time educating people on in our #21stCenturyHuman workshops, tech isn't the problem, people's muscle memory is greater challenge, corporate L&D don't train people in the right things
Chris Nokkentved
What we propose is to selectively deploy automation commencing from task automation on iterative, simple tasks, then progressing into virtual assistants (chat / conversational), accelerating decision-making
Marc Wilkinson
@stroker Technology Muscle Memory dates us like geological periods - pick up a pen/ paper= you're from Cambrian Era
Chris Nokkentved
This can be done by a parallel journey towards a new Digital Core. E.g. OLTP+OLAP systems in e.g SAP ecosystems moving to S/4HANA, while offloading data into #Hadoop #BigData repositories to establish the E2E data sets
Graham Chastney
@M3Wilkinson Interesting watching a programme about product researchers at Dyson the other night. Young and old, they all used notebooks and pens.
Marc Wilkinson
@GrahamChastney isn't that a reflection of how they were taught? I pick up a pen and a digital screen
Graham Chastney
@M3Wilkinson I think it's more a reflection of a shared, and very effective, working practice.
