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!

Inauguration of the New CIO

Presidential inaugurations herald the dawn a new term, filled with aspirations of many, including the ambitious goals of the Commander-in-Chief. The inaugural address charts a course for the next four years. As I watched the inaugural ceremonies, I thought of newly appointed CIOs who must be ready to deliver their own version of an inaugural address. Every new CIO must lay out their priorities, based on the business and IT drivers for their enterprise.

Happy New Year, CIO – Checkout your 2013 priorities

At the start of every New Year, we all have an opportunity to step back and start again, with a fresh perspective on our responsibilities and goals. CIOs are no different. And this year, when CIOs do so, the white paper on IT priorities (from IDG research) entitled Clouds, business issues and time management dominate the CIO’s world in 2013 will be an interesting read.

First Webjam—Impact of Cloud Computing on our job descriptions

You might not know this, but I co-chair the Cloud Governance Project within The Open Group—one of the many projects on the Cloud Work Group’s roster. Recently, the Cloud Work Group introduced the concept of a webjam—an informal way for members with a common interest to have an interactive brainstorm or debate—on a topic of their choice for some of its monthly sessions. The webjam is open to all members of the Cloud Work Group projects. Think of it as a panel discussion—except everyone on the call is part of the panel! I recently coordinated the first-ever webjam for our group. We used, "What will Cloud do to your resume?" as a topic.
