CODE | Center Of Digital Excellence
Digital Is Everywhere.
It began as that weird element or that new kid on the block or even a luxury that has no practical value.
Then people and companies drew a grayish line where the new is digital. Everything and everyone else are losers or will be extinct sooner rather than later. The digital transformation business began. It is a disrupt or be disrupted world. But what is digital, really?
The Javasparks CODE is taking a rather different take on this. There is true transformative power in digital. But harnessing the benefits of the new is both an art and science that requires blending evolution with revolution in a most intricate dance that is both beautiful and useful.
Let us take this journey of better paths or newer paths.
Enterprise Begins By Being Enterprising.
Ever wonder what happened to all the nice and good things they teach you about professions when you were young? About how each profession, has value and dignity? That is until they welcome you as an adult into the game of life and the real world which bears no resemblance to what was inspiring and beautiful?
Business is no simple game.
It is closer to art, science, and exploration than simply overcoming another combatant.
Yes, it can be fun. Actually, for the most part, it should be fun.
But ultimately, at Javasparks, we aspire for shokunin. Roughly translated, it means artisan or craftsman. This, though, hides the deeper meaning of the principle.
Some call it corporate social responsibility. Some call it social enterprises.
Shokunin means not only having technical skills, but also implies an attitude and social consciousness. The shokunin has a social obligation to work his/her best for the general welfare of the people. This obligation is both spiritual and material, in that no matter what it is, the shokunin’s responsibility is to fulfill the requirement.
Harnessing The Enabling Powers Of Knowledge
Technology is beautiful. It is amazing both by the intrinsic ways it operates and by the direct contribution it makes to society.
We all, at some point, said technology is just an enabler. What matters most are plans, policies, processes, politics, and people. True enough, to a point.
We always ask our customers and partners on a thought journey, to remember distant history and recent experience. It is no surprise that most of the major inflection points in history are not enabled by technology but were actually driven by a technology that seemingly had no appreciated value outside eccentrics, enthusiasts, and experimenters.
That is until desperate times or dire situations or the dedication of a few open-minded people drove it to light.
From pencils, to semiconductors; to phones then to mobile phones then to smartphones; to CDs then to DVDs then to Flash Drives then to full internet data dynamics, each had a hard transition against the incumbent.
But when an idea whose time has come arrives, magic...
Let us build together.
As Principle. As Process. As Outcome.
Design meant for the eyes is the unfair-est way for it to be defined. But this is exactly what most consider design to be.
Design is closer to scientific process, artistic theory, or even education than it is with the prevailing perception of design which is graphics and aesthetics.
Design is meant for the mind and heart. Design is an endeavor driven by the desire to solve a problem, using processes that is maximised for learning and adaptation, and is driven by empathy and vision above all else.
It is hard work.
It is, for the most part, a hidden exercise that is unappreciated.
It fails a lot.
But when it does breakthrough with something amazing, it moves the world.
Ready for a change?
Harder To Break In Unity
Focusing on core competencies is a must; that is until you feel you have lost an interdependent set of capabilities and competence, which, while not directly related to your focus area, has crippled your capability to experiment and innovate.
But one cannot build a strategy on having all possible skills held closely at any given point in time.
Now more than ever, you need the right balance of what you prioritise and what you allow latitude --- to keep some doors open.
As a committed partner to your success, Javasparks can help you gain one of the most expensive asset to acquire: freedom.
Got a challenge or an idea?
Imagined Boundaries Are Imaginary
Oh, Innovations... One of those beaten down words whose meaning is so deep but whose usage has rendered it trivial.
Worse, if it is not in tech (i.e. computers or internet), it is not innovations.
But technology is not just those related to computers and the internet. Innovations is definitely not just for tech.
Innovations is the sibling of design, driving change and improvements while solving problems with grace.
Innovation is fraught with misunderstandings, perils, and challenges.
At Javasparks, we live this everyday, in every aspect of our inner workings as well as with our customers and partners.
Let us innovate together.
The Precursor To All Other Skills
We have designed Javasparks to inculcate a learning culture.
Reading. Listening. Analysing. Thinking. Paying attention.
In a time when everything and every knowledge seems accessible everywhere and solutions can be copied just-in-time, there seems to be no space left for curiosity or discovery.
As the way the world is managed more and more for mining and extraction, less and less is invested for seeding, planting, growing, and nurturing.
Then we hit a wall.
As your think tank, your eyes and ears, and as your trusted advisor, Javasparks takes learning seriously. All skills, virtues, and methodologies mean nothing when not rooted strong enough on fundamental knowledge and immense capacity to learn.
