It's not often I use a quote as a headline, but this one in a column by CIO Magazine editor-in-chief MaryFran Johnson grabbed me. Rather, it struck me full force.

When more than 700 CIOs were asked what tasks and activities would consume them the most in three to five years, they listed “driving business innovation” and “identifying opportunities for competitive differentiation.” However, many a CIO’s reaction to this CIO Magazine’s State of the CIO 2011 research may be, “Tell me something I don’t know—like how to make these things happen.”

It’s A Hybrid Cloud World: Are You Managing Your Hybrid State?

In January 2014, HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise hybrid cloud environments and how they are being managed. Forrester developed a hypothesis that tested the assertion that enterprise IT operations teams struggle to recognize and manage this hybrid state — a hypothesis that was proven out. In conducting in-depth interviews with 10 enterprise IT leaders, Forrester found that these companies acknowledged that their cloud deployments were calling back to the data center, but they articulated a variety of management challenges with these integrations.

CIO.com senior online writer Tom Kanshige just wrote two stories about events that could sideline BYOD: one about a California court ruling that mandates employees get reimbursed for work calls and another where he writes that some employees want their Blackberries back.
