Are Existing Companies Built to Die?

i. Slide from the Confluent Kafka Summit in London 2019 about the importance of real-time data
ii. The “Five-model” depicting the main perspectives of any organization
iii. A slide depicting the current state of workings for a traditional business
  • How fast are other organizations moving in the industry?
  • What are the threats from other industries moving forward much faster?
  • Are the barriers to entry beginning to be removed, making it easier for anyone to innovate?
  • Are existing channels being re-invented by new players in the market, circumventing existing ways of working?
  • What are the primary revenue streams of existing businesses, and does that correlate to future ones?
  • How suited is the existing organization to fulfill future needs?
  • What is the need for the companies products/services on the market?
  1. Change the existing organization to capitalize on existing and future opportunities.
  2. Disrupt the existing organization, start new from scratch, and out-compete the existing one.
iv. There’s an equal sign between the level of digital maturity between the organization and the tools it is using
  • There’s no doubt that most companies operating in the real-estate space, as well as other traditional industries, are in fact, built to die.
  • There’s no doubt it’s more about business and strategy than it is about technology for existing companies.
v. Picture depicting the two sessions I am participating in at the AHRexpo in Orlando 2020
