Jim Stogdill is Senior Director at Accenture where he is building a new emerging data platforms and disruptive analytics practice area. The intersection of data, open source, and platform thinking is simply too important for the corporate enterprise to ignore.
This work fits nicely with the concept of Intentional Emergence - bringing the vibrancy and innovation of the web to the large enterprise by enabling its edges. To that end he encourages agile software development, platform thinking, generative technology policy, and the development of open source software in the large scale corporate and government enterprise.
In previous lives he advised the DoD on emerging technologies, built B2B reverse auction systems, brought heuristic-based optimization and online trading to the corporate treasury, and traveled the world as a Navy Officer. Unfortunately from his vantage point it all looked like the inside of a submarine. He spends his free time hacking silver halides with decidedly low-tech gear.
