Looking at the data—through Google Glass—to view the information

After having checked out the Cloud, Security, and Mobility tracks at HP Discover, I look at Session DT 3809 on how Google Glass can be used to view information that matters. Reading the abstract, I get several ideas of how this “thing” can make a difference, across various industries, in the new world of Internet of Things (IoT). For instance, Beth Isreal Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) CIO John Halamka, explains the benefits of physicians adorning Google Glass who look at their patients while viewing their information. This is Google Glass applied to the healthcare industry. Like Big Data and Cloud, IoT has its own way of making a difference across industries. Let’s look at the scenarios below to view the related information.

HP Helion – a down-to-earth message from Mother Nature

It is a bright new day and the sun is shining with great pride above the clouds; radiating positive energy all the way down to the spring flowers that punctuate the tapestry of Mother Nature, the CIO of Planet Earth. The sky is splattered with varying shades of puffy white clouds (public) and other dark and mysterious clouds (private). Several others have ‘oh-so-fascinating’ shades that are just the right mix for the right segment of the landscape. No single type of cloud covers the whole sky. Because you see, Mother Nature has a new wave of thinking when it comes to the Clouds. She is a pragmatist, like some of us, and is sending a ‘down-to-earth’ message to the enterprise – a message that comes across loud and clear through HP Helion (root: “Helios,” the Greek sun god).

Innovating with the criminal mind to secure $60 million at HP Discover

 “How to steal $60 million in 60 seconds” is one of the Innovation Theater session in the Security track at HP Discover. This session, delivered by Andrzej Kawalec, Chief Technologist, HP Enterprise Security Services, is about understanding how cyber criminals plan attacks that realize returns like $60 million in 60 seconds. While this session takes us into the darkest corners of Adversaries R Us, it also provides an opportunity to learn and apply a new style of thinking. I don’t expect to walk out with $60 million after this session, but I do feel very secure obtaining approximately $60 million worth of knowledge by attending the various sessions in this track. Join me in my quest to obtain $60 million worth of knowledge.

To be or not to be your own device at HP Discover

Marc Wilkinson, HP Chief Technologist, Mobility & Workplace, suggests a different acronym for the Bring Your Own ecosystem. Asking if the “Bring Your Own” paradigm is unraveling, Wilkinson suggests that it is a “Bring Your Own Stuff” world. All these devices – fueled by the world of wearables – is, at the end of the day – defining the persona of the individuals concerned. Just like Software is the new Brand that defines the Digital Customer Experience, the “stuff” that Wilkinson refers to defines the individual. Thus, it is more about “Being” rather than “Bringing” your own device – a message that clearly comes across when I review the HP Discover sessions on the Mobility Track. Join me as I consider “Being My Own Device” at HP Discover.

Discover the Next Wave of Thinking for Transforming to the Cloud

As I work on my HP Discover presentation – DF3521 — The Three phases vital to cloud adoption, I come across this Cloud Webinar by HP CEO Meg Whitman. Whitman, who recently made the CNBC First 25 List, sets a good example for the style of leadership required for the New Style of IT. While I eagerly look forward to a webinar that introduces the next wave of cloud, here are my thoughts on the three phases vital to cloud adoption. Two out of three is not good enough for successful transformation to the Cloud.
