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.

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 Wi-Fi experience that matters to your consumers

So, as I am about to board my four-hour flight, I see the airline proudly calling out the availability of in-flight Wi-Fi. And I think, “Yeah right! I’ll believe that when I experience it.” After the usual take-off procedures, I connect up and am pleasantly surprised at the reasonably economic all-day rate. And then I think to myself, “You get what you pay for,” anticipating breaks in the overall experience. But I’m glad to share that my experience has been very positive, and in many respects much better than some of my experiences when on land. The airline must be doing something right when it comes to ensuring effective wireless connectivity for its customers.

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? This is the question posed in this post, in which Intel invites HP Discover attendees to “Experience some of the platform and technology advancements that will become essential to the way we work, the way we live, and to our social interaction.” This post piqued my curiosity and made me wonder what could be so “amazing” about the Intel sessions at this conference. Here are my thoughts based on a quick review.
