5 Words that describe IT Culture for the Next Generation CIO

There was a CIOChat held recently on 5 words that best describe IT culture.  There were many phrases and combination of words that brought out various aspects of enterprise culture in general as well as the culture of Enterprise IT in particular.  “Culture is really important … You also need to develop a culture that is open to change”, says HP EVP of Technology and Operations John Hinshaw in this interview by Peter High on Forbes as part of the Beyond CIO series that highlights CIOs taking on roles with expanded purviews.  Hinshaw describes his experience growing from a CIO in the years past to his current role where the CIO and IT report to him, as do several other business units.  After reflecting on what was shared by my peers in the CIOchat, and reading Hinshaw’s interview in Forbes, here is my take on 5 words that best describe IT culture.

Discover the Inner GPS of Enterprise Transformation

Dr. John O’Keefe, will share this year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with May-Britt Moser and Edvard I. Moser. These three scientists are being recognized for their discovery of an “an inner GPS, in the brain,” that solves the basic mystery of how the brain creates a map of our surroundings and helps us navigate our way through a complex environment.  Sound familiar?  Enterprise Transformation can similarly be described as both are a continuous engine. The New Style of IT drives a new style of leadership triggering a new style of thinking that develops the “Inner GPS” for the enterprise.  Can enterprises zero in on this “Inner GPS” of transformation?  Let us see if the sessions at HP Discover Barcelona offer any clues!

Maximizing your vision on Cloud Computing

My optometrist is advising me to wear bifocals so that I can see objects in the distance and also angle my eyes slightly to read text at closer distances.  Thanks to his advice, I let my visual experience define my choices for my next pair of glasses.  When our appointment was wrapping up, I inquired about an interesting note “Do Not Shutdown” on one of the computer monitors. I understood that my optometrist had transitioned to a New Style of IT in his own way while making a business decision on transforming to Cloud Computing.  In addition to maximizing my range of vision, he also demonstrated a clear short-term and long-term vision on effectively enabling his business with Cloud Computing.  Let me explain how.

Enterprise Architecture done right drives Enterprise Transformation

Eric Sweden, Program Director, Enterprise Architecture & Governance, NASCIO will be delivering one of the keynotes in the Plenary Session of The Open Group Conference in Philadelphia. I read the abstract for his keynote with great interest. Sweden asserts “Enterprise Architecture” provides an operating discipline for creating, operating, continual re-evaluation and transformation of an “Enterprise.” Not only do I agree with this assertion, but I would add that the proper creation, operation and continuous evaluation of the “Enterprise” systemically drives its transformation. Let’s see how.
