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!

The next generation of 75 years starts now

It is final Homecoming for my high-school senior child and there is a pre-gathering where parents are clicking away, capturing the moment in time before they complete their final semester and get ready for the college. A group of seniors with aspirations to be the leaders and torch-bearers of the next generation as well as the parents of the generations to come.  Between them and their children, they represent the workforce that would take our industry through the next 75 years.  And I reminisce about my visit to the HP Garage where the very aura took me back 75 years when two Stanford graduates started an “Engineering Services Company” that they named “HP” just based on a coin-toss.  As I was peering into the lens of my camera, I was also looking out as far as I could into the next 75 years.  What can we expect from the next generation of graduates?  And also, what could the next generation expect from the industry.  Because, the next generation of 75 years starts now, as the video states below.

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!
