I love Chinese food. Who doesn’t? And we’re lucky because we’ve got all the options in and around our village. We have a lovely, elegant restaurant in a grade II listed building. We have a nice “eat as much as you like” Chinese buffet restaurant. We have a great takeaway that will also deliver. Which do I prefer? It depends on my requirements.

I’m at a classical music concert. The Concert Master tunes the orchestra before the performance by playing a single note on their violin. This pitch sets the standard for the performance as various pieces are played to holistically produce sounds which – when orchestrated right – are music to my ears. Enterprises must have standards too when it comes to their business processes, services and enabling tools. Projects and initiatives must be cognizant of these standards while adopting them pan-enterprise.

Five Things Big Data Isn't

Understanding Big Data in the Negative

Blog-post by,

A few months ago, I wrote a blog about defining cloud computing.  Although I didn’t get any death threats, there was a bit of consternation associated with how I delineated the somewhat ubiquitous and pervasive industry buzzword.  People were unhappy.  But whatever; I put a stake in the ground and I’m okay with that.

How do CIOs balance the pressure to contain costs against all the things we preach they must do: get to know the customer, provide apps and cloud services with lightening speed, securely enable the mobile workforce, forge C suite relationships and exploit Big Data to name a few.

It's a dizzying number of tasks often in conflict with each other. Yes, everyone wants to go mobile, but isn't that inherently a threat to security. Maybe the CIO should be the Chief Contradiction Officer.
