Our weekly Twitter chat yesterday zeroed in defining converged infrastructure (CI) and the rationale behind it. CI is a hot topic for CIOs and is being driven by the search for efficiencies and better productivity in the context of cloud, Big Data and mobile.

First the numbers for yesterday's chat: 32 participants and 230 Tweets (at least three were CIOs).

Our questions were: what is CI?; how big a priority is it for 2014? and what is hyper-CI?

Use the hashtag #CIOchat to view the full stream of 230 Tweets between 2-3 p.m. EDT Thursday. We'll be back next week.

Innovating Disruption

Breaking the Marketplace to Win

Blog-post by,

I’ve always been a big fan of visionaries.  The top of my list is Albert Einstein, unarguably the greatest mind of the 20th century.  I’m also a huge fan of Elon Musk, Nicolai Tesla, Galileo, Louis Pasteur, those crazy fools over at DARPA, and the entire Google[x] team; brilliant scientists and inventors that believed that dreams were the stuff of innovation.  They turned the world upside down with their theories, their mathematics, their world-advancing inventions, many times in spite of mockery, disdain, and even threats to their lives and means of income.

The only way to do that is to fail fast.
