Intuitive Enterprise

Think about 'intuitive' as being like cognitive.   Its a form of augmentation, another means generating potential solutions, then testing them.  Testing can be formally numerical, in an analytic sense,  simulations to help understand it in operation, or it can further be intuitively examined to be filtered into other potential directions.

We've Reached an inflection point in the way that work, well, works.

That’s thanks to the sheer amount of data available today: According to one report, the world created 16.1 zettabytes of data in 2016 (for context, one zettabyte equals 36 million years of HD video). What’s more, emerging technologies can use all of that data (to store, to learn from, and, in some cases, to act from), challenging the traditional workflow with which many of us are comfortable.

But fears were quelled when new types of jobs—and the factories that provided them—arose. Then, as automation increased in the 1980s, available jobs in industries that were driven by the Industrial Revolution (like manufacturing) dipped. Still, overall employment rose. ... " 

Today, technologies—such as advanced computational power and machine learning, to name a few—again threaten to supplant human workers. These technological advancements are sure to create changes as radical as those experienced in the 18th century (it’s already happening). But workers shouldn’t be afraid. Today’s emerging technologies will free up time to guide the change in ways that are creative and customer-focused. This won’t happen organically, however. As automation and digitization accelerate, organizations must accept and adopt technological advancements if they hope to remain relevant. They must change their mindsets. ... "
