A blog about Digital Transformation. 

Ideas like Industry 4.0, IIOT and Digital Transformation get a lot of attention and this blog offers our thoughts, ideas and opinions on these sometimes chaotic changes with new technology. We don’t have all the answers – we’re on a learning curve like everybody else, and here we simply share what we learn.

Why Open-Source Is The Future-Proof Solution For Success In Manufacturing

Why Open-Source Is The Future-Proof Solution For Success In Manufacturing

It brings unmatchable, fast growth. “Software is eating the world. Open-source is eating software.” Mike Milinkovich Mike Milinkovich’s words represent the meaning of the digital transformation in a nutshell.  As technology progressed, it has made its way into every aspect of our everyday life, making it easier and faster. But every device we use is separated from the others,...

We Have Done This Before: How We Can Use History To Thrive in Industry 4.0

We Have Done This Before: How We Can Use History To Thrive in Industry 4.0

The bad news is that those before us missed opportunities. The good news is that we can learn from them.  Many of us seem to forget the title of this era: Industry 4.0 / The 4th Industrial Revolution.  It’s literally all in the name: this is the 4th time something like this happened - and every time, we gained crucial insights about how to use it to our advantage. ...

Digital Transformation Jargon Made Simple: Explaining the Real Meaning

Digital Transformation Jargon Made Simple: Explaining the Real Meaning

Let’s avoid the confusion of abstract terms. I find it quite interesting how confusion can be a powerful weapon against igniting meaningful, positive change. The human brain developed over hundreds of thousands of years, but it’s still triggered in the same way it was when humans had to hunt or be hunted. Therefore, our job is to teach our brains that the unknown, the risks, the...

A New Era: Is the Digital Transformation a Curse and a Blessing?

A New Era: Is the Digital Transformation a Curse and a Blessing?

Radically different times are coming. Here’s how you can prepare. The world is changing.  And it looks like a curse and a blessing. Change doesn’t always bring prosperity, but it always invokes the fear of the unknown - or, as I have written before, the Loss Aversion. As humans, the unknown terrifies us.  What if you don’t know how to face the challenges with which it...

Start over – forget the old systems

Start over – forget the old systems

Our daily work with different organisations confirms the overall thesis about lots of opportunities for working smarter. An over-use of the term “digital transformation” may have turned some folks off, but we experience heaps of options for improving performance using digital technology in general. Unfortunately, we also observe a reluctance to...

The inspiration to create Enuda

The inspiration to create Enuda

In an earlier blog post, I argued that right now is probably the best possible time for working with digital transformation. It’s also a fantastic time to be in business. The world around us is ripe with opportunities for things, just waiting to be improved using digital technology in a better way. You can also say that what lies ahead is one big playing field of opportunities for...

I will  never accept surveillance software

I will never accept surveillance software

With Covid-19 forcing many knowledge people to work from home, the surveillance software industry experiences a boom. On this specific topic, there is no middle ground; either you accept going down that alley, or you don’t. I’m in the latter category - I will never allow surveillance software in Enuda. In this blog post I take a stand on this important topic, which is also related to...

Use early industrial development to understand digital transformation

Use early industrial development to understand digital transformation

Right now is probably the best possible time for working with digital transformation. We have only just started and have endless opportunities ahead of us. Digital transformation is a technological transition, that will change many things in our lives and societies, and we need to go back in history to better understand how this could play out. Luckily these technological...

How I got the design vs coding all wrong – and learned

How I got the design vs coding all wrong – and learned

The idea to create Enuda popped up in my mind sometime spring 2017. Over summer and autumn the same year, I worked on the core question for any new business: “How to turn what I think is a great idea into a real business opportunity?” I have been running my own business since 2006 and had therefore both some financial means and probably way more necessary some experiences to put into...

How digital transformation changes the perception of value

How digital transformation changes the perception of value

What is value? What does it mean that something is valuable? In most cases, the answer is something subjective - your perception of value is probably in many ways different from mine. But one thing is sure; digital transformation changes the perception of value in profound ways. My claim is that in many walks of life, where we take value for granted, things have already started to look...
