Gartner, a leading research and advisory firm, sees significant potential in blockchain and distributed ledger technologies and consider it to be one of the'Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2017'. Speaking at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo on the Gold Coast, David Furlonger, research vice president and Gartner Fellow, said the implications of blockchain technology for our society go beyond our imagination. "We now have a digital capability to represent any form of value that is privately issued – you can become your own banker, insurance agent or foreign exchange teller. What does that mean for how society operates today? What are the implications for governance, our tax system and our legal framework?"

Brazilian companies are lagging behind in digital transformation

ZDNet

Brazilian organisations have focused too much on reducing costs over the last two years and have neglected the need to invest in digital strategies, according to analyst firm Gartner. According to Gartner's research vice president Cassio Dreyfuss, the economic, political and social challenges faced by companies and government bodies in Brazil have prompted local chief information officers (CIOs) to go back to some old management habits. "Hardware, software and services in Brazil were always more expensive in Brazil and for a long time things were just not available - so the successful CIO here has been the techie that can put ancient pieces of equipment together and get them to work," Dreyfuss told the press at the analyst's annual symposium in São Paulo today. "These leaders focused on infrastructure and operations - and on bringing cost efficiency to those areas - are now perplexed and don't quite know what to do as optimizing spending is still important but there are other things to think about - and digital is now a priority," the analyst adds. In episode 5 of CxO Talk, Gartner analyst, Mark P. McDonald, presents a compelling and insightful view of social collaboration and relationships between IT, the chief marketing officer, and lines of business.
