The Valentines of Enterprise IT

Come Valentine’s Day, I will get ready to make my candle-lit dinner reservations (with the bottle of champagne in the ice-bucket and a bouquet of fresh roses for my spouse), I eagerly look forward to a quiet evening with her, and am thankful for how she completes me in achieving our goals – as a couple – as partners. Just like us, there are many such “Valentine Pairs” who may very well set aside precious moments to recognize this vital relationship on February 14. Such mutually dependent partnerships are not unique to our personal lives. Competitive enterprises of the future must ensure that similar partnerships are in place to make it all relevant. Here’s wishing these New Style of Partnerships a very Happy Valentine’s Day!

The New Style of IT brings movies to a theater near you

When I go to the movies, I walk in, settle down into world of imagination and walk back out into reality. Annual events like the Sundance Film Festival provide us an opportunity to obtain insight into what it takes to bring movies to a theater near you. At the Sundance House (presented by HP), you’ll see how the New Style of IT weaves a connective fabric of technologies that seamlessly take a movie from the production house to the consumer. Today, technology makes the unimaginable real. Join me in this walkthrough of how these technologies make movies real in each phase of this transformation journey.

WYOD — Wear Your Own Devices — the wardrobe of the next generation

I’m a home office worker, using the efficiencies of virtual communication and collaboration technologies to maximize productivity. While work never stops, I am allowed certain degrees of freedom during the work day that an office environment doesn’t provide. For example, take my "attire" for the work day. I stay in casual attire that I am used to during off-hours. However, the emerging focus on wearables is painting a very different picture about my attire. It is a new world where the devices you wear are more likely to catch someone’s eye than your regular clothing. Wow! Look at that trend-setting dude wearing all those cool devices! Welcome to the world of Wear Your Own Devices (WYOD). Join me as I transform – head to toe – to supplement my usual attire with the wardrobe of the next generation.

Continuously monitoring the temperature of your enterprise

While taking your body temperature might seem like a simple, mundane exercise with a thermometer, the fact is that this piece of data can be used to provide insight into personal health indicators, using additional context. Doing this continuously with wearable devices provides actionable data that can be further analyzed to obtain valuable insight. How about a sophisticated "electronic skin" that adheres non-invasively to human skin, conforms well to contours and provides a detailed temperature map of any surface of the body? The underlying need for such continuous monitoring is not unique to individuals and their body temperatures. Let’s see how the New Style of IT drives enterprises to have such monitoring in place to continuously gauge the overall health of the enterprise.
