You will hear many familiar themes in my live Tweets from the MIT CIO Symposium two weeks ago: CIOs have to move away from ops and live the business; embrace social media; innovate; and run IT more efficiently. Many live Tweets stand on their own, but my elaboration where required is in italic. Tweets are not always direct quotes: rather quotation marks set off the live tweets.

So it was with considerable skepticism that I would find much value in the 80 live tweets I zipped out from the MIT CIO Symposium two weeks ago. However, I was pleasantly surprised: they are rich and crisply-captured thoughts, most of which stand on their own. I'm not giving myself a pat on the back for great Tweets (yes, I am.).  I confess to fixing 2-3 typos in my Tweets.

Blog-post by,

When I was in graduate school pursuing a business strategy degree, I took a class taught by Ian Mitroff, professor emeritus at the Marshall School of Business. During one class, Ian had the entire class take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment and then grouped us by our results. He asked our groups to determine the world’s problems and to create a Tinker Toy object to represent it. I was in the systems thinker group. We were done in 30 minutes and built a very simple object.

Return on Investment. That's what the term ROI has signified all along. But based on my recent posts, this term has taken on other dimensions, because enterprises look for returns from various dimensions of investment, whether it’s information, infrastructure, innovation, or individuals. The fact that all these terms start with the letter “I” is merely coincidental.

You have created your cloud infrastructure and you have your service catalog online, but your service catalog is empty because you do not have any services to provision. Traditionally, you would have had to create these services yourself and requiring months of testing to get them production ready.

Private vs. Public Cloud for BI

As I mentioned before, migrating to the cloud it doesn’t have to be hard or expensive. When migrating to the cloud, there are many options including on-ramping solutions which leverage server templates provided by cloud providers; automation tools to rebuild apps into a provider’s stack; migration attempts to move servers as-is.
