Document Strategy: How to Build a Cross-Functional, Multi-Disciplinary Team for Digital Transformation

Digital transformation has seized the imagination of virtually every C-suite. It promises to radically enhance customer engagement and loyalty across all business functions while improving competitiveness, increasing value, driving productivity, and managing risk.

TechTarget: Despite losses, DeepMind technologies are worth it to Alphabet

Despite the financial losses, DeepMind technologies and research are likely worthwhile anyway to Alphabet, said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder of market advisory and research firm Deep Analysis. “The losses are high but are to be expected, and I don’t think those are of concern nor will be even if they were to double,” Pelz-Sharpe said. “There are few companies that have those kinds of resources to spend on speculative tech, but Alphabet is one of them.”

TechTarget: AI Culture of Success

TechTarget: Hertz versus Accenture

While the Hertz complaint only shows the rental car company’s side of the argument, typically the problems begin when consultants — who aren’t content experts and tend to default to Adobe products — focus on the app’s front end at the expense of retooling the back-end systems delivering the content, said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder of the research firm Deep Analysis.

TSG Group: ECM 2.0 – Machine Learning & Indexing

With ECM 2.0, we are starting to see both better OCR with components like Amazon Textract, as well as the ability to add Machine Learning to feed corrections into the process to improve the results over time. To quote Alan Pelz-Sharpe, long-time ECM analyst at Deep Analysis:
