What’s the deal with Shadow IT?

Blog-post by,

Shadow IT is a term that describes IT systems and solutions built and used inside organizations without IT approval. A group of people choosing to use a spreadsheet that they email back and forth instead of a company-approved means of storing and sharing crucial information, employees using DropBox to share notes and files, a developer who builds an unsanctioned custom piece of software to simplify or automate a repetitive task — all these are examples of shadow IT.

5 Major Reasons to Address Windows Server 2003 End-of-Life Now

Cost, Risk, Security, Strategy and Timing are Key

Blog-post by,

Extended support for Windows Server 2003 will no longer be available after July 14, 2015. It’s already out of mainstream support, meaning that contracted support isn’t available now. Any support needed, even for a per-call incident, won’t be available after July. You’re on your own. Any outage will be yours to manage. You have two choices: deal with it now, or kick the can down the road.

Blog-post by,

Last week I attended a specialized training/go-to-market program in Seattle hosted by Microsoft’s Azure team.  It was a week full of clam chowder, excellent crab cakes, ridiculous discounts at the Microsoft store, and technical training on Azure, Microsoft’s massive and fully loaded penetration point into the world of cloud computing.  Although late to the game (a troubling problem characteristic of this company), Microsoft has invested hundreds of millions of dollars

Tuesday's elections roil CIO job security

State CIOs suffer from short tenure anyway.

You'd think state CIOs who create more efficient, cost effective and citizen friendly IT would be immune from politics. A CIO who's successfully moved creaky state systems to the cloud would  be golden, right?

Think again. After all, politics are politics and state CIOs serve at the pleasure of governors. Ten new ones were elected Tuesday and there there were 36 gubernatorial races nationally. Many were tight including the one in my state (Massachusets) were very tight.
