Blog-post by,

Or put another way, it is about establishing business/IT alignment. One area where CIOs need to make sure there is better alignment is enterprise analytics. CIOs that I have talk to share openly that business users are demanding the ability to reach their apps and data anywhere and on any device.

Enterprise Technology in the New Year-2015

Blog-post by,

Technology and business- the two are no longer mutually exclusive. Once upon a time, a company who had no immediate dealings in tech (say for instance, a pet store) didn’t need to concern itself with technology except perhaps to own and operate a POS system. These days however, it is becoming more and more of a necessity for business owners to produce and manage a solid digital existence.

Blog-post by,
Community Manager

We concluded our last #CIOchat for 2014 with a raucous discussion about CIO priorities for 2015. As I have pointed out for the past several months, security is rising fast given all the very public and damaging hacks of late.

First the numbers: 40 participants generated 381 Tweets between 2-3 p.m. ET yesterday. We #CIOchat every Thursday at the annointed hour, but given Christmas and New Year's are on the next two Thursdays, we will not #CIOchat again until Jan. 8.

As was aptly shown in an analysis by ComScore: - Search engine still dominates the market with web traffic, and apps are catching up.
