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.

New Style of Leadership driven by a New Style of IT at Channel Link

This week, I am currently attending the Channel Link 2014 conference organized by Tech Data.  I have been inspired by the general session speakers, Scott McCain as well as David Meerman Scott who are sharing insightful thoughts on how enterprises can interact in real time with their current and prospective customers, through social channels.  While doing so, one can clear see how the next generation of technologies that have come to be characterized as the New Style of IT can be effectively leveraged across the ecosystem of customers and partners.  The general sessions by McCain and Scott provide great context for my breakout session where I am characterizing how enterprises must adopt a new style of thinking driven by a new style of leadership to effectively take advantage of the New Style of IT.  So, what are the traits that define the New Style of Leadership?  Let us see.

Going social on auto-racing with Rainer Zietlow and the New Style of IT

When I raced to the New Style of IT at HP Discover, Las Vegas, I figured it would be the closest I would come to experiencing auto-racing in real life.  Well, world renowned adventurer Rainer Zietlow, is proving me wrong.  Zietlow is racing 19,000 kilometers in a record-breaking nine days from Nordkapp, Norway to Cape Agulhas, South Africa -- a race that is enabled by all the aspects that define the New Style of IT (Cloud, Big Data, Social and Mobility). –The factor that fascinates me the most in this case, is the social interaction.  You can engage with the race in real-time, in multiple ways, including being in an (auto) social race of your own thanks to the New Style of IT and Zietlow. Want to join in this race? Read on!

Are you ready to be amazed by Intel at HP Discover Barcelona?

Are you ready to be amazed by what HP and Intel have in store for you this year?

Here are my thoughts based on a quick review.

Old Style Enterprises must take action driven by the New Style of IT

In his New York Times article, How Not to Stay on Top, Joe Nocera discusses two companies that were the leaders in their space, and, in their heyday, positioned to grow in the years that followed. Or so they thought. For various reasons detailed in the article, they lost their market share to other companies who emerged with products that better met the evolving demands of the consumer. It was not a question of quality, or cost, or service. What was in question was the market demand for the products as they were originally designed. So, in hindsight, what could these companies have done to ensure that they stayed ahead of their competition? Let’s explore this further.
