The role of the CIO is changing. According to a June 27 article from NextGov, federal agencies are coming to terms with the idea that greater CIO responsibilities must dovetail with increased authority and a broader perspective. To that end, Congress is debating a proposal that would see CIOs granted full budget control — and full responsibility for any IT investments.

Blog-post by,

It’s all too easy to fall into bad habits at the office: browsing social media, online shopping during business hours, or maybe even sneaking glimpses of World Cup matches when you should be finishing that critical report. But what about the habits we don’t even realize we’re repeating day in and day out? These commonplace behaviors can seriously damage your chances of success, especially if you’re a member of the sales team working with large amounts of customer and prospect data.

We had a very robust Twitter chat about which emerging technologies and which ones aren't. Such an open ended question always sparks debate, but the answers are pretty obvious - Big Data and then cloud and are most important while the value of wearables and Internet of Things are less well understood. There was almost no mention of mobile and we had at least four CIO types in the chat!

We also danced around the issue with many Tweets talking about what would make an emerging technology important - supporting the business strategy and end users, good governance and so forth.

Recently I saw a news item that Amtrak, which accounts for most passenger rail service in the U.S., reported record ridership of 31.6 million passengers in 2013. They were really excited with their success. But a little digging uncovered the fact that in 1920 railroads in the U.S. carried 1.26 billion passengers. That’s a decline of 97% in 97 years.

What is a digital enterprise?

Quite simply, it is one whose IT foundation is based on cloud, Big Data/analytics, Mobile and social/collaboration - all in support of business goals. That is the digital enterprise and to get there you must pass through something called digital transformation. When you actually arrive is anyone's guess, but the CIO should know when he or she sees or feels it.

This is one of those posts that basically wrote itself as the result of an internal e-mail discussion. My nonsense detector was loudly going off.

Internet of Things is where the world is heading

Learn how the concept of Internet of Things (IoT) has evolved from what it was before. Plus, what are the three main components of IoT.

We have already started seeing IoT in concepts like: electric toothbrush, Wifi bathroom scales and smartphone controlled cooker. The basic concept in IoT is connectivity which has been first visualized by Kevin Ashton, a British technology pioneer in 1999.

His Internet of Things (IoT) is an idea in which machines with intelligent sensors are hooked up to the web. And these sensors gather streams of constant data to a data warehouse.

Blog-post by,

Technology is effective each and every vertical of our life. There is nothing in our day-to-day world which has not being influenced by technology. From the way we study (e-books), to the way we communicate with each other (Facebook, WhatsApp etc.) everything has been changed in last decade or so.

Life is becoming easier for us day-by-day and technology is churning out all the difficult task out of our life and giving us only the easiest things to do. We no longer have to struggle for regular things because now technology is there to simplify the operations.

Our Twitter chat this Thursday asks what emerging technologies you think are the most important. And which ones will be a bust?

Our chat is 2-3 p.m. EDT on Thursday. If you want to elaborate beyond the 140 character Twitter limit, our CIO Question poses the same question. 

So far, analytics and Big Data are coming up as the most important technology. Internet of Things seems to draw the most skepticism.
