    Skeptics argue that Santa Claus's worldwide Christmas Eve delivery isn't possible, citing some arcane laws of physics that would need to be bent or bypassed altogether. Most of these arguments, however, don't take into account the complexity of Santa's possible distribution network that would make his annual globetrotting trek more plausible. What follows is an outline of how Santa's
  • Santa Claus: Master of Supply Chain Management

    29 Nov 2013 | 12:52 am
    You may be facing stiff competition in your industry, but on your most stressful days take a moment to feel grateful that you aren’t competing against the ultimate all-time master of supply chain management. No question, the Santa Claus operation would easily crush the efforts of any small or large company — with nary more than twinkling wink and a cheerful swipe with a white-gloved fist.

  • Workflow for beginners, Standards, Concepts and Confusion

    Stephan H Wissel
    23 Jul 2014 | 7:02 pm
    The nature of collaboration is the flow of information. So naturally I get asked about Workflows and its incarnation in IT systems a lot. Many of the question point to a fundamental confusion what Worflow is, and what it isn't. This entry will attempt to clarify concepts and terminology Wikipedia sums it up nicely: "A workflow consists of an orchestrated and repeatable pattern of business activity enabled by the systematic organization of resources into processes that transform materials, provide services, or process information. It can be depicted as a sequence of operations, declared as…

  • Adventures with vert.x, 64Bit and the IBM Notes client

    Stephan H Wissel
    17 Jul 2014 | 3:58 am
    The rising star of web servers currently is node.js, not at least due to the cambrian explosion in available packages with a clever package management system and the fact that "Any application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript" (according to Jeff Atwood). When talking to IBM Domino or IBM Connections node.js allows for very elegant solutions using the REST APIs. However when talking to a IBM Notes client, it can't do much since an external program needs to be Java or COM, the later on Windows only. I really like node.js event driven programming model,…
  • Cycle where?

    Stephan H Wissel
    13 Jul 2014 | 10:16 am
    I like to cycle, I do that often and from time to time I have fun with traffic participants. One of the interesting challenges are multi-lane crossings (note to my overseas readers: Singapore follows the British system of driving on the left, so cyclists are supposed to cycle on the left edge of the road - which makes me edgy in some situations. So for right driving countries, just flip the pictures) where the outer lane allows more than one direction. Like these: Road rules do require the bike to stay on the left (I didn't find the cycle symbol in SmartDraw, so I used a motorbike, just…
  • From XML to JSON and back

    Stephan H Wissel
    11 Jul 2014 | 6:09 pm
    In the beginning there was csv and the world of application neutral (almost) human readable data formats was good. Then unrest grew and the demand for more structure and contextual information grew. This gave birth to SGML (1986), adopted only by a few initiated. Only more than a decade later (1998) SGML's offspring XML took centre stage. With broad support for schemas, transformation and tooling the de facto standard for application neutral (almost) human readable data formats was established - and the world was good. But bracket phobia and a heavy toll, especially on browsers, for…

  • How Has the Internet Worked Out So Far?

    IWB
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:10 am
    The Internet started out as a DARPA sponsored experimental project to develop a fault-tolerant computer network.  ARPANET was launched in 1969, and by the mid-1980s, it had evolved into NSFNET, a network widely used in the academic and research communities.  Then, with the advent of the World Wide Web, the Internet began its transformation from a network used primarily by research communities to the commercial platform it has become, now being used by billions around the world.  The Web and the Internet have become so intertwined that most people use the terms…

    A few weeks ago, NY Times columnist David Brooks posted an OpEd on The Evolution of Trust. The OpEd is focused on Airbnb, the online platform where people list and book  accommodations all over the world, which now has over 600,000 listings in more than 34,000 cities and 190 countries.  Brooks thought that people would never rent rooms in their homes to total strangers.  “But I was clearly wrong,” he writes.  “And Airbnb is only a piece of the peer-to-peer economy.  People are renting out their cars to people they don’t know, dropping off their pets with…

    9 Jul 2014 | 4:10 am
    The recent New Yorker article, - The Disruption Machine: What the gospel of innovation gets wrong, - by Harvard history professor Jill Lepore, has led to a flurry of opinions on disruptive innovation.  The New Yorker described the article as “Rethinking the innovation craze.”  Others called it an “absolutely devastating takedown of disruptive innovation,” a concept that Lepore said is a “competitive strategy for an age seized by terror.”  It’s also a takedown of her fellow Harvard professor Clayton Christensen, - considered the father of disruptive innovation…

    Otherwise serious concepts sometimes end up as overused buzzwords.  If the books and articles that introduced them become popular, the concepts can get stretched and applied way beyond their intended meaning.  The business world is particularly awash with such trendy buzzwords.  After a while, most of them quietly return to their academic roots or disappear altogether, and the public moves on to the next popular buzzword.  Examples abound, including core competencies, paradigm shift, and synergy.  Few business concepts have been as long and widely used as…

    By now, most will agree that cloud computing is a major transformational force in the world of IT.  But, cloud has not the easiest concept to grasp.  Not that long ago, even people who agreed that something big and profound was going on, were not totally quite sure what it was they were excited about.  “There is a clear consensus that there is no real consensus on what cloud computing is,” was the overall conclusion of a June, 2008 conference on The Promise and Reality of Cloud Computing.  Cloud has continued to evolve and advance over the ensuing…
