I just read an interesting case study about how DreamWorks has transformed their document workflow processes to ensure access to the right information at the right time. The end result is vastly improved employee productivity, faster contract approval processes, and improved decision-making process capabilities.
Here’s their story:

Saving the best for the last. This interview by Andy McCaskey on sdrnews.com was my best experience across all the 4 interviews at HP Discover for multiple reasons. First, it provided me an opportunity to -- in Andy's words -- bring it all together: cloud computing, big data, analytics. etc. Also, I had asked Andy to surprise me, and I didn’t provide any specific topics to discuss, giving him full license to bring up whatever comes to his mind. Which he did!
HPES held the first in a summer series of Big Data Twitter Chats on 6/19 at 12 Central. This twitter chat focused on Foundational Competencies for big data. Check out the recap of the event.
In my third interview on sdrnews.com, Andy McCaskey builds upon the profiling of applications that we discussed in the first interview to consider various options for housing the applications on the right infrastructure. After an initial discussion about the significance of having the right infrastructure for the right application, the interview gets into the different types of personalities like the Big Kahuna, Problem Child, Lone Star, Crowd Pleaser and the Generalist.

In its recent Magic Quadrant for Communications Outsourcing and Professional Services, Gartner states that “Very few COPS providers are able to meet all customer requirements, across all countries and geographies, by leveraging internal resources for IT service delivery.” And with the challenges in today’s workplace, it’s no surprise that the above statement is a hot topic of discussion among corporate IT departments and popular technology forums. The “new normal” of doing business globally requires better collaboration among workers and partners in different geographies, business units and even companies.
In my second interview with Andy McCaskey of sdrnews.com, the focus was on standards -- the reason why they evolve and why they take time to become real. McCaskey provided me with the opportunity to detail the world's first technical standard for Cloud Computing -- SOCCI -- the Service Oriented Cloud Computing Infrastructure from The Open Group. HP, as a Platinum Member of The Open Group, played a significant role in the creation of this standard. I co-chaired this project and also presented it in multiple sessions at the HP Discover 2012 conference.
In addition to my blog posts and twitter chats at the HP Discover 2012 conference, I was also interviewed multiple times by Andy McCaskey from SDRNews.com. This was my first time being interviewed by Andy, and he has this uncanny ability to encourage the interviewee to expand his/her thoughts on the topic being discussed – it was like I was blogging verbally.
