As the year winds down, I took the liberty to look at the terms that would shape the CIO discussions in 2014. Here are 10 terms that definitely will be part of their conversations.

HP Discover, think cloud, think mobile, think hybrid

As HP Discover in Barcelona closes, let's look back at what happened there. I ran through my scribbled notes and came up with a couple thoughts I captured and things I learned.

OK, the CIO should be part of the digitization of the enterprise, but should he get back in the driver seat, and then, which driver seat? Frankly, I believe more in collaboration. Here are some points the CIO should keep in mind if he wants to be part of the transformation of the enterprise.

Increase your reaction speed, update your development approach

Many CIOs highlight the need for agility and responsiveness, when talking about cloud. They see that, beyond reducing costs, they require to resond faster to their users' requirements.
