TopicHero 2017

Introducing TopicHero 2017

TopicHero is a foundational building block of both Collaborative Intelligence and Enterprise Maturity.

What’s Collaborative Intelligence?

Collaborative Intelligence is the integrated intelligence of groups of people with groups of technology tools. This can can take numerous forms including:

  1. Capturing, Organizing, Automating, and Sharing the Knowledge and Reasoning of Internet Interactions: (i.e. TopicHero) There is a wealth of knowledge and reasoning encapsulated in interactions within: Links, RSS/News Feeds, Search/Social Engines, Webpages/Notes/Editors, Images, Chat and Messages. TopicHero provides tools to capture, organize, automate and share this knowledge and reasoning.
  2. Active Control of Intelligent Search and Analysis through Multiple Manipulations of Sophisticated Applications: (i.e. NuEngineer) The masters of the different applications capture significant amounts of knowledge and reasoning within their respective applications. The NuEngineer team is a TopicHero sister company specializing in this type of collaborative intelligence, and the TopicHero’s team provides services in this area.

What’s Enterprise Maturity?

Enterprise Maturity is a family of scientific process for optimizing the flow of reasoning within and between all of the entities operating within enterprises. This is juxtaposed against alternative modern models that look to the optimize the psychology of leaders (which only has a limited bearing on the optimization of enterprises). Enterprise Maturity includes:

  1. Vision at the Speed of Change: Most companies are stuck creating strategy and vision for a week or two at the beginning of their corporate year. This means that the vision they create is out of date on an average of six months. TopicHero along with the associated IT Maturity Method from TopicHero’s parent company IT Maturity, Inc, enable enterprises to continually flow changes and advances within their global environment into a living Vision that grows and evolves with their environment. This requires tools and processes that enable every entity/person within the enterprise.
  2. Exceptional Leadership is the Methodical and Continual Creation of Heroes: Every entity needs tools to methodically and continually observe and process changes and advances, as well as to share and escalate associated issues and opportunities throughout the enterprise. This means that tools are needed to enable every entity within the enterprise to become a hero in their own areas of specialization. Being a hero means excellence both technically and from an enterprise interaction perspective. TopicHero provides sophisticated user friendly tools the enable both gathering and sharing knowledge and reasoning. Further, the associated IT Maturity Method provides training in evolving enterprise interactions.
