5 Words that describe IT Culture for the Next Generation CIO

There was a CIOChat held recently on 5 words that best describe IT culture.  There were many phrases and combination of words that brought out various aspects of enterprise culture in general as well as the culture of Enterprise IT in particular.  “Culture is really important … You also need to develop a culture that is open to change”, says HP EVP of Technology and Operations John Hinshaw in this interview by Peter High on Forbes as part of the Beyond CIO series that highlights CIOs taking on roles with expanded purviews.  Hinshaw describes his experience growing from a CIO in the years past to his current role where the CIO and IT report to him, as do several other business units.  After reflecting on what was shared by my peers in the CIOchat, and reading Hinshaw’s interview in Forbes, here is my take on 5 words that best describe IT culture.

Back to the Future of Innovation at HP Discover

HP Discover Innovation Theater sessions have always made me wonder what it takes for innovative concepts to unravel in the human brain.  Back in 1957, Issac Asimov explained that the confluence of intersecting thoughts triggers new creative ideas (thanks to Arthur Obermayer for sharing this in the MIT Technology Review).  This might explain how the intersecting perspectives of Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard gave birth to Silicon Valley in the HP Garage while at the crossroads of simplicity and entrepreneurship.  Join me as I explore HP Discover Barcelona to check out the future of innovation.

Sprout by HP blends the reality of the physical and the digital worlds

"We believe it can change the world”, says HP executive vice president Dion Weisler of Blended Reality.  Weisler is referring to HP Sprout, a design-oriented computing system that lets people scan and manipulate 2-D and 3-D objects.  It would not have surprised Issac Asimov, who asserted way back 1957 that creative ideas stem from people capable of making the right connections across knowledge domains. “It represents a whole new category (not just your ordinary PC)”, according to HP Distinguished Technologist Brad Short in this USA Today interviewJoin me as I explore the reality of what is getting “blended” and how it could potentially change the world of user experience.

Using HP Discover to avoid getting derailed by Big Data

Big Data is not a big problem for Union Pacific CIO Lynden Tennison.  Instead, Tennison is asking for more Big Data! That’s not a typical CIO’s request. Union Pacific has the right mechanisms in place to continuously gather data and apply analytical techniques to gain valuable insight from its railroad infrastructure.  Insight that allows them to track the health of their assets.  Union Pacific is also looking to collect Big Data at more granular levels to predict potential failures with greater accuracy.  Thus, they’re strategically using data to refine their operations, customer experience and more. What can other enterprises do to avoid getting derailed by the “Runaway Train” of Big Data?  Let’s check out the HP Discover Big Data sessions.

New Style of Agility drives the Mobile Experience at HP Discover

Going Mobile? Don't forget to test, your customers won't! says A.J.Murray, one of my fellow bloggers highlighting the need to deliver applications that run according to the needs of  the brave new social world of mobile interactions.  Agile methodology has long been about shorter development cycles with real-time adjustments based upon direct interactions with the end user.  However, with software defining the new brand of the digital enterprise, competitive enterprises of the future must adopt a ‘New Style of Agility.’  What could this new style of agility entail?  Checking out a few of the HP Discover sessions on Mobility in Barcelona would be a good start.
