How software maps can drive software innovation and transformation

19 January 2017  |  5790 views  |  0

Maps allow us to use both the visual and analytical sides of our brains simultaneously. Our brains are connected to instantly understand context and make use of what we see. Maps free up our minds to intuitively explore beyond any point we’ve gone before.

Today most value creation is driven by software, and financial services companies across all sectors need to be world class software companies. The demand for software developers is outpacing the supply by a tremendous degree and the race for talent has only just begun.

IT leaders globally recognize access to talent as the single biggest issue standing in the way of achieving their objectives, according to Gartner 2016 CIO Agenda Report.

Innovation is the key theme at all Banks, Insurers and Asset Managers today, and next to access to talent, continuous learning and improvement is the driver towards success.

High speed innovation cannot be done without transforming the way you organize yourself. Agile is a key driver in any successful transformation journey nowadays. Agile transformation models evolve everywhere and everyone is learning form everyone. An inspiring example can be taken from ING’s agile transformation journey, explained by COO Bart Schlatmann and CIO Peter Jacobs, both ING Netherlands.

Peter Jacobs: “Spotify, for example, was an inspiration on how to get people to collaborate and work across silos—silos still being a huge obstacle in most traditional companies. We went to visit them in Sweden a few times so as to better understand their model, and what started as a one-way exchange has now become a two-way exchange. They now come to us to discuss their growth challenges and, with it, topics like recruitment and remuneration.”

What if IT and Innovation Leaders had a Maps based system that helps them drive intuitive and iterative continuous learning and improvement across their teams and applications?

A fact based system that helps them become market leaders by allowing them to get the most out of their most important assets: people and code! 

Leading Financials e.g. Credit Suisse, HSBC, Standard Chartered, UBS and BNP Paribas recently recognized Seerene’s unique capacity to drive software innovation at FinTech Innovation Lab Asia-Pacific.

McKinsey, Google and Rochet Internet recently awarded Seerene most promising B2B scale-up in The Digital Top 50 Awards at Slush 2016 in Helsinki.

I first discovered the true power of quality maps using the metro. Metro maps around the world are based on Becks innovative underground map of 1933, which itself is based upon the concept of an electrical schematic. Sense through Simplicity!
