The Best Information Governance Conference Yet: InfoGovCon14

Learning, Life Lessons - and Laughter - at Information Governance Conference '14

Blog-post by,

This past week I attended and spoke at #InfoGovCon 14, the inaugural conference focusing solely on information governance (IG) held in Hartford, CT. I’ll have to say, not only was I impressed with the speakers, but I was just as impressed with the attendees.  Quality all the way around in a casual, collegial atmosphere.  No agendas, cliques, or sniping politics.  A clean slate. And although we were discussing serious IG issues, one thing stood out in every session I attended: laughter and a light-hearted atmosphere.

I don't agree with David Linthicum's post in InfoWorld that contends the IaaS and PaaS markets will no longer support smaller providers. He also argues that the little guys will have to exit those markets and find something else to do.

Shadow IT—the good, the bad, and the ugly. How to deal with it?

The debate over shadow IT is like a three-man standoff in a spaghetti Western. On one side you have the business leaders and developers, who view external cloud resources as a quick and inexpensive way to get a project up and running. On the other you have IT, who feels it’s losing control when the business turns to external service providers. And in the middle you have the CIO, who faces pressure to meet the needs of the business, but who also has to weigh the risks involved with using an external service provider.

Recently, I had the opportunity to talk to a number of CFOs about their technology priorities. These discussions represent an opportunity for CIOs to hear what their most critical stakeholder considers important. The CFOs did not hesitate or need to think much about this question. They said three things make their priority list. They are better financial system reliability, better application integration, and better data security and governance.
