Top 10 tips to achieve Enterprise Mobility in Asia

By Shiva Venkatraman

Mobility1.jpgAsia has a younger, mobile savvy, impatient population that is price sensitive, has buying power, is more open to sharing information online and less concerned about privacy. These youngsters are now part of the workforce for enterprises in Asia. So, if I were a CxO, how would I achieve Enterprise Mobility in Asia? Here are some thoughts:

CIOs and the New Style of IT


World-in-a-mobile-642x301.jpgTwo articles on the role of the CIO in the New Style of IT caught our eye last month. In one report, Business Value Exchange community manager Helen Beckett sums up a poll taken at the CIO Summit held in conjunction with HP Discover 2013 in Barcelona. The summary of the findings holds that business relevance is causing a shift from traditional Systems of Record to more dynamic Systems of Engagement.

 

For good measure, Helen also captured the responses of the same poll questions from HP CEO Meg Whitman. In this post, we summarize both articles, and direct you to the Business Value Exchange. 

Is the CIO facing extinction?

The traditional role of Chief Information Officer (CIO) is under siege. In this environment of accelerating, disruptive change, CIOs are fast becoming an endangered species. What do CIOs need to do to remain relevant?  

 

In the past, the CIO was responsible for integrating data and technology in a quest for information solutions. But the consolidation and commoditization of hardware, applications, and connectivity has dramatically changed all of that. These elements are being outsourced. As generic IT gradually loses its organizational value, the CIO of the future must be a driver of strategic value.

Sustain your Enterprise Architecture – taking a few Lessons from Dad

I was sitting with my college-bound son in the initial welcome meeting at his college. Shortly after the meeting, shaking my son's hands, I said, "You are on your own, buddy." In my mind, I was thinking about the architecture project we embarked on as parents 18 years back -- just like one defines and evolves the architecture for an enterprise. But, is my son really on his own? I hope the foundational principles instilled in him will surface at the right junction points, which will ensure that what we architected is viably sustained for years to come. Just like I draw on the values instilled in me by my Dad. Similarly, enterprise architectures have to be sustained over time -- they are not a one-time only, 90 day project with a projected ROI of 200%.
