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!

Engage with the Nucleus of IT at HP Discover 2013

I am a big fan of Geoffrey Moore. His key messages around Applications Transformation and the Cloud correlate perfectly with my own. For instance, take my assertion that CIOs need a System of Engagement with the CMO based on a Geoffrey Moore interview. Earlier, I wondered if Mother Nature is the CIO of the planet. So I was very interested when I read the session abstract for HP Discover 2013 Track Keynote: How the user is the new center of IT, which references Moore's observation that the “… next trillion dollars of IT spend will be directed at Systems of Engagement.”

 

And I’m thinking: Why not?

From the desk of Big Data - Meet my new master

Hello, enterprise IT:

This is Data. In my first post, I shared the steps you can take to realize the big picture. In this post, I share my perspective on my various masters over the years. I recently saw a presentation by Rich Vancil, Group VP of the Executive Advisory Group and Kathleen Schaub Research VP and CMO Advisory Service from IDC. They explained how and why I should start getting accustomed to being led by a whole new master. Someone I would not have thought about in the recent past. But then again, I’ve had so many masters; it’s hard to know whom to follow next! No matter. I always manage to adapt.

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.
