Happy New Year! Before writing my first post in 2013, I reviewed all my 2012 posts and found that they cover a wide range of topics in our Journey through Enterprise IT Services.
Here is a guided tour of my 2012 blog posts, classified by areas, themes and interesting facts, starting with a big thank you to IT:
1. Applications Transformation needs aTransformation GPS—whether it be NASA or a 1930 Pontiac Coupe. Both Frankfurt and Las Vegas showcase Applications Modernization as an art. New Styles of IT drive newer transformation approaches, based on self-parallel-parking cars, and Mother Nature!
2. Applications Development: OccasionallyI listened to music, appreciating Forrester Analyst Phil Murphy’s observations of the sublime messages delivered through various songs across the decades.
1. Cloud Computing: Although converging to the cloud in a standardized manner is like moving houses, it has to be done and securely. Cloud is rapidly emerging across industries. CIOs must answer the ROI question while applying proper governance. By the way, has the Cloud impacted your resume?
5. Information Management: Data Governance is getting renewed visibility—driving enterprises to be at least as social as their customers. We have turned the tables on computers, using informationalization to address the Data Tsunami, because Big Data is a big deal! In fact, managing information could be used for migration, or for sentiment analysis to drive application interfaces.
6. Security is vitalin the Public Sector—requiring us to penetrate the mind of the hacker through the inception of OODA techniques—in the workplace, or in the home office.
Innovation manifests itself across the healthcare industry, and in the hospital. This is as relevant now as well as in 2020—whether it be for Applications Development, wearable devices, people, planets, petadata, or profit.
This is my first blog of my own. Throughout the past year I’ve made note of some very interesting topics and events, including:
I look forward to the New Year. I see 2013 as a time filled with possibility. And I look forward to hearing more from you.
