You can’t write a blog in January without reference to Xmas. And, as usual, my blog is about eating and drinking. Like many of you, my family did a lot of hosting over the holidays. And guests arrived with all sorts of wine. Red, white, rose, sparkling, French, Italian, New World. But interestingly a few people bought boxes of wine. I don’t know what the current wine connoisseur’s thinking is about boxes of wine. But the convenience, flexibility and ease of use intrigued me. The big strong box on the kitchen table ensured that wine was always easily accessible (literally on tap).

How should CIOs engineer the new social enterprise?

Blog-post by,

As we know, Chief Information Officers are generally ‘change and upheaval averse’ because it is, after all, mostly prudent to resist change.  With change comes risk, new user training, new integration challenges and a bottom line with increased cost.  But new social enterprise trends cannot be brought to bear without taking the necessary steps that form Business Process re-Engineering (BPE) and its associated evils.

Analysts researching cloud adoption have determined that lines-of-business (LOBs) are adopting cloud services 2.5 times faster than IT is. So what’s behind this eye-opening ratio?

Would you run your business with only 0.5 percent of your workforce? Could you succeed with just that percentage of your data center utilized? Of course not. And you would never make strategic decisions with only a half a percent of the information available to you. No one in their right mind would do that.

But when it comes to extracting value from Big Data, it’s what most enterprises do every day.

The IDC report, “The Digital Universe in 2020[1]estimates that:

The changing work place and its impact on IT

One topic we rarely discuss at the Enterprise CIO Forum is how much the workplace has changed and how much it will in the future. Such changes are having an enormous impact on IT.

What got me thinking about this is our next house, not that we are moving any time soon. 

I work mostly from home, but do I really need a home office? Does anyone need an office or anything much more than a small cube in the office? On my weekly visits to the office, I need WiFi, a small table to plunk down my notebook and a chair.

Choosing The Right Architecture For Developing Mobile Application

Blog-post by,

The architectural approach is based on what features are needed. In turn, these features must be based on the iOS platform. If there is only one approach that meets these requirements, the decision making process is fairly simple.

Emerging Technology: Flexible phones add form and function

Blog-post by,

Advent of flexible media and accessories used to power devices such as phones, tablets, batteries promises to make consumer gadgets more user friendly. Users in the future will not have to worry about dropping devices (there goes the insurance), buying accessories (i-phone cover, android cover). Business users in the future will not  need not carry  a 5 lb laptop, which will go easier on the back and help airline checkin.
