The 2015 HIMSS Leadership Survey found that while 41% of healthcare leaders think big data analytics is a number one priority for their organization, a surprising 81% still have basic questions around the quantity and type of data they should be collecting and how to actually turn that data into insight.

That’s not especially good news considering healthcare data continues to grow at 48% per year through 2020 from clinical applications, Internet-enabled medical devices, wearables, and remote patient monitoring.

After reading my post on the emergence of The Second Machine Age and what it holds for the world of transportation, my boss responded, “I still prefer a clutch and a gear stick!”

And if the comments I received from many of you are any indication, you may feel similarly. However, you also told me you are excited about the changes that lie ahead, not just for transportation, but also for other industries.

Technology “is the enabler of virtually any strategy, whether by providing the big data analytics that reveal new ways to reach new customer groups, or the Internet of Things connections that enable a whole new profit center in after-sale support. Top leaders need to know what technologies can do and how to bend it to their strategic goals. Leaders cannot wait until technologies are fully baked to think about how they will work for – or against – them. And sometimes companies will need to disrupt their own business models before a rival or new competitor does it for them.”
