This paper defines the agile enterprise as one which is able to both manage and apply knowledge effectively, and suggests that value from either capability is impeded if they are not in balance. It looks at the application of knowledge as requiring a change, and overviews a body of analytical work on change proficiency in business systems and processes. It(More)

Current system security strategies are failing and cannot be fixed by security engineers alone. The reason for failure is evident: the attack community operates as an intelligent, multi-agent, self organizing, system-of-systems - with swarm intelligence, tight learning loops, fast evolution, and dedicated intent. Next generation security must engage in true(More)

The security gap is widening as adversarial communities of all kinds employ more sophisticated techniques and broaden their targets of opportunity. These adversarial communities are structured as self organized proactive collaborators in tight learning loops driving rapid innovation -- preying upon systems protected by wait and see strategies. In this paper(More)
Agile software development processes of various kinds have been proposed and put into practice. Generally they are specific-approach oriented at the operational-characteristic level. Ten underlying principles for agile systems were identified by examining over a hundred various non-software systems that exhibit agility. This paper outlines and discusses the(More)

Anomaly detection promises to find elements of abnormality in a field of data. Computational barriers constrain anomaly detection to sparse subsets of total anomaly space. Barriers manifest in three ways — conserving both pattern memory capacity and pattern matching cycle time, while closing off scalability. The research reported here has discovered(More)

Automated recognition of patterns in data is constrained by tradeoffs among speed, cost, and accuracy. A new reconfigurable VLSI processor architecture decouples the speed/accuracy tradeoff, and renders the cost/accuracy tradeoff negligible, enabling new performance and new applications. The architecture features massively-parallel, dynamically configurable(More)
This paper outlines reasons for project failures and ties them to value proposition failures. It defines a value proposition as including both the proposed project deliverable values as well as the implementation processes that will assure value is delivered. It shows that an effective value proposition is not so much about the technology being proposed as(More)
