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.

Discover the Inner GPS of Enterprise Transformation

Dr. John O’Keefe, will share this year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with May-Britt Moser and Edvard I. Moser. These three scientists are being recognized for their discovery of an “an inner GPS, in the brain,” that solves the basic mystery of how the brain creates a map of our surroundings and helps us navigate our way through a complex environment.  Sound familiar?  Enterprise Transformation can similarly be described as both are a continuous engine. The New Style of IT drives a new style of leadership triggering a new style of thinking that develops the “Inner GPS” for the enterprise.  Can enterprises zero in on this “Inner GPS” of transformation?  Let us see if the sessions at HP Discover Barcelona offer any clues!

The next generation of 75 years starts now

It is final Homecoming for my high-school senior child and there is a pre-gathering where parents are clicking away, capturing the moment in time before they complete their final semester and get ready for the college. A group of seniors with aspirations to be the leaders and torch-bearers of the next generation as well as the parents of the generations to come.  Between them and their children, they represent the workforce that would take our industry through the next 75 years.  And I reminisce about my visit to the HP Garage where the very aura took me back 75 years when two Stanford graduates started an “Engineering Services Company” that they named “HP” just based on a coin-toss.  As I was peering into the lens of my camera, I was also looking out as far as I could into the next 75 years.  What can we expect from the next generation of graduates?  And also, what could the next generation expect from the industry.  Because, the next generation of 75 years starts now, as the video states below.

Making New Style of IT real at Gartner Symposium

Ramón Baez, SVP and CIO of HP is speaking at the Gartner Symposium 2014 on the New Style of IT – a style that promises simplicity, greater agility, higher performance and lower costs. As the CIO of a global enterprise with five major business lines and more than 300,000 employees working in 170 countries, Baez deals with a formidable challenge.  Curious about how Baez could be addressing these challenges, I gathered some valuable pointers from the other HP sessions.  Join me as I checkout how the New Style of IT is made real at the Gartner symposium.
