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.

Humans have an insatiable demand for information, and we want to explore, learn and unravel our surroundings by searching and finding our more. We are beginning to utilize our devices as our search agents predominantly, and at same time leaving a treasure trove of data behind.

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

It is all about the 'I' in CIO

'I' stands for innovation as much as information. Here's six ideas to make innovation happen.

Blog-post by,

For most, the “I” in CIO stands for Information. But what about that other “I”, Innovation? For many IT organizations, 60-80% of IT spending continues to be tied up in keeping the IT lights on. But innovation matters more than ever to the business bottom line. According Geoffrey Moore, “without innovation, offerings become more and more like each other. They commoditize.” (“Dealing with Darwin”, Geoffrey Moore, page 1).

Blog-post by,

A couple months ago, I reached out to a set of CIOs on the importance of good governance and security. All of them agreed that both were incredible important. However, one CIO retorted a very pointed remark by saying that “the IT leadership at these breached companies wasn’t stupid”. He continued by saying that when selling the rest of the C-Suite, the discussion needs to be about business outcomes and business benefits.  For this reason, he said that CIOs have struggled at selling the value of investments in governance and security investment.

What are the top five priorities for the CIO in the new year? That's our #CIOchat question for Thursday, 2-3 p.m. ET. 

I'll a stab at them and would love to hear back from CIOs. You can also respond at length in our new CIO Question. My five purposely avoided technologies except security because at this high level, they are obvious: cloud, Big Data, mobile, data centers etc.

What are some of the top concerns of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) today? According to a 2014 TechAmerica Federal CIO and CISO Survey – it’s improving cyber security. As new threats increase, risk management involves both educating users about security risks such as phishing attempts as well as building up network protection with continuous monitoring.
