Innovate Your Business with Custom Choices

The New York Times listed the results of some recent research by Strategy + Business, which suggested that “marketing” has been rethought, and has been recast as innovation:

Paul Brown’s Falling Short Of Greatness reads, in part, as follows:

“The consultants note, however, that there is hope that the situation will improve.

Last year, Coca-Cola said it was eliminating the job of chief marketing officer and would be combining marketing, innovation and strategic growth into a single job.

The consultants wrote, ‘Coke followed Pepsi, Intel, I.B.M., Samsung and other pioneers in explicitly linking the marketing function and the growth imperative.’ ”

In all modern businesses, innovation has begin to transcend marketing, and will in several ways include development of both the business and corporate product development, and strategic approaches that result from both. In larger firms, this may stretch to ideas and research, and may ultimately be viewed as a logical step in the growth of the contributions of all members of the employee base, wherein input from everyone has begun to be a standard operating procedure.

Software Design by KCSI

The design of interfaces is another element which adds to the stability, portability and maintainability of your software. The following things have to be observed:

  • Describe your interfaces clearly. Already in the architecture the kind of information, the data width, resolution and sign has to be defined. This is especially important if components are developed by different vendors.
  • Make your interfaces as narrow as possible. Therefore use simple basic data types rather than complicated proprietary structures at the interfaces. It is sometimes amazing how simple interfaces can be if the functionality is distributed in a sensible way in appropriate components.
  • Only use function calls as interfaces and refrain from using memory pools or any other globally shared elements as interface.
  • Preferably make your interfaces uni-directional. This means that input components provide interfaces used by the processing components and layers. Avoid bidirectional interaction between the same components.

KCSI factors in the above four concerns into every design we make.
