Information Governance Takes Off

IG Comes of Age

Blog-post by,

Information Governance (IG) is "control of information to meet all legal, regulatory, risk, and business demands." IG programs seek to maximize information value while reducing associated risks and costs. With the onlsalught of Big Data, IG programs are increasingly critical to CIO success. Back in 2012 Gartner predicted that by 2016, 1 in 5 CIOs in regulated industries will lose their job due to failed IG programs. http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/1898914

The Internet of Things carries significant security risks

Blog-post by,

New technologies serve to increase productivity and can improve a myriad of things. However, new technology invariably comes with a hidden security cost. To wit, there was a recent report of a refrigerator doling out spam (digital, not canned).   As it turned out, this refrigerator (like many other things ranging from door locks to thermostats) was wired and connected to the Internet.

Security #CIOchat draws record participants, Tweets

My favorite two conversations discuss CIO challenges and security resources.

Blog-post by,

Our Twitter chat on security yesterday set a record for participation. No doubt, security is top of mind for CIOs, a half dozen of which joined our chat.

We had 43 participants or about 25% more than usual and 356 Tweets when we've averaged in the neighborhood of 230 for the past few weeks. More participants are a good thing although it increases the number of cross conversations. Furious is sort of the nature of the chat beast, but the more chatsters, the merrier.

Process Improvement on a Budget

Blog-post by,

Full scale process improvement projects are time consuming and expensive. Companies or departments which need to make cutbacks or increase production without an increase in resources need to get creative. With many departments already running lean, implementing a full scale process improvement project from scratch is the last thing anyone wants, or can afford, to do. Here are some ways to find relief with a small team and a limited budget. Each little win provides a few more resources to manage the increased workload, and for additional improvement efforts.

Progress, Modulus and the Node.js Opportunity

Blog-post by,
KPadir

Lately there has been a lot of buzz — more than just buzz, really. The topic has been Node.js. And when companies as well known as Uber, Walmart, Groupon, and PayPal have been putting many of their “eggs” in this new basket called Node.js, it’s time to pay attention.

Companies that rule the “Internet of Things”

Blog-post by,

The Internet of Things (IoT) has been a buzz in the IT industry for some time, and the largest technology players are moving quickly to stake out the territory. In just the past month, Apple announced a new “smart home” platform, and Google made a similar announcement for Android and purchased Nest for $3.2 billion.

SaaS Startups – Don’t shoot on your own leg

SaaS companies are born with a vision of solving a unique business problem. The better it solves those problems the more successful it’s going to be. But SaaS as a delivery model adds more technical challenges to these SaaS startups, which deviates them from the actual problem they were supposed to solve.

The anatomy of a shark and how it relates to your datacenter infrastructure

Using this metaphor could make for a killer data center.

Blog-post by,

Metaphors can help demystify complex concepts like converged infrastructure, which is a somewhat self-defining term but at the same time a touch fuzzy.

That's why I like to compare the most productive and efficient data centers to a shark's anatomy.

Allow me to explain with these 5 quotes from the movie Jaws.

1. “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.”
