Why Digital Transformations Fail: The Surprising Disciplines of How to Take Off and Stay Ahead by Tony Saldanha
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.5 MB
Overview: Former Procter & Gamble Vice President for IT and Shared Services, Tony Saldanha gives you the keys to a successful digital transformation: a proven five-stage model and a disciplined process for executing it.
Digital transformation is more important than ever now that we’re in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, where the lines between the physical, digital, and biological worlds are becoming ever more blurred. But fully 70 percent of digital transformations fail.
Why? Tony Saldanha, a globally awarded industry thought-leader who led operations around the world and major digital changes at Procter & Gamble, discovered it’s not due to innovation or technological problems. Rather, the devil is in the details: a lack of clear goals and a disciplined process for achieving them. In this book, Saldanha lays out a five-stage process for moving from digitally automating processes here and there to making digital technology the very backbone of your company. For each of these five stages, Saldanha describes two associated disciplines vital to the success of that stage and a checklist of questions to keep you on track.

Discrete Wavelet Transformations: An Elementary Approach with Applications, 2nd edition by Patrick J. Van Fleet
Requirements: .PDF reader, 159,9 MB
Overview: The new edition of Discrete Wavelet Transformations continues to guide readers through the abstract concepts of wavelet theory by using Dr. Van Fleet’s highly practical, application-based approach, which reflects how mathematicians construct solutions to challenges outside the classroom. By introducing the Haar, orthogonal, and biorthogonal filters without the use of Fourier series, Van Fleet allows his audience to connect concepts directly to real-world applications at an earlier point than other publications in the field. Leveraging extensive graphical displays, this self-contained volume integrates concepts from calculus and linear algebra into the constructions of wavelet transformations and their applications, including data compression, edge detection in images and denoising of signals. Conceptual understanding is reinforced with over 500 detailed exercises and 24 computer labs.

Euclidean Geometry and Transformations (Dover Books on Mathematics) by Clayton W. Dodge
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 14.5 MB
Overview: This introduction to Euclidean geometry emphasizes both the theory and the practical application of isometries and similarities to geometric transformations. Each chapter begins with an optional commentary on the history of geometry. Contents include modern elementary geometry, isometries and similarities in the plane, vectors and complex numbers in geometry, inversion, and isometries in space. Numerous exercises appear throughout the text, many of which have corresponding answers and hints at the back of the book. Prerequisites for this text, which is suitable for undergraduate courses, include high school algebra, geometry, and elementary trigonometry. 1972 edition.
