Vor dunklen Daten dich schützen du musst

Big Data es gibt. Es zu beherrschen, lernen du musst. Aber vor dunklen Daten dich schützen du musst.

Ein Daten-Padawan, auf seinem Weg, ein Daten-Jedi zu werden, vielen Gefahren wird begegnen. Jetzt, da Big Data vom Gipfel der aufgeblähten Erwartungen in intergalaktischer Geschwindigkeit in das Tal der Desillusionierung rutscht, reichlich Versuchungen es gibt, die Grenzen der Handelsunion hinter sich zu lassen. Dunkle Daten liegen jenseits dieser Grenzen. Richtig beherrscht unglaubliche Möglichkeiten für Daten-Jedis werden sie schaffen, die Macht zu entfesseln und den Saldo ihrer Organisation abheben zu lassen.

Of Dark Data, Beware You Must

Big data there is. To master it you must learn, but of dark data, beware you must.

A Data Padawan, on his quest to become a Data Jedi, many dangers he will encounter.  As big data slips from the peak of inflated expectations and into the trough of disillusionment at intergalactic speed, temptations to stray beyond the limits of the Trade Federation abound.  Dark data that beyond these limits resides, if properly mastered, incredible opportunities for Data Jedis will create, for the Force to unleash and for their organization’s bottom line to levitate.


CIO Leadership, Cloud

Last week I was talking to public sector clients who are in the process of moving to cloud. We discussed how best to do that, knowing they want to stay vendor independent, and the subject of the service broker was discussed in quite some details. However, technology is not the most difficult aspect of that transition. It’s actually the evolution of the organization. We spend quite some time discussing that aspect of things.

How one organization took care of its IT financial management mess

Blog-post by,

One of the things that I like to do in the marketing classes I teach is to share from Geoffrey Moore’s book, “Crossing the Chasm.” In the book, Geoffrey discusses how building a business is like bowling. You have to start with the market segment that has the highest value proposition and is feeling the strongest pain point. For PCs, that market segment was financial managers and the product was Visicalc (an early predecessor of Microsoft Excel, for those of you who are too young to remember).

Add this to the list of things a CIO has to worry about: litigation. They need a litigation readiness plan. Given the CIO is usually the overseer of data, he or she will be the go-to person when lawyers sniff around for evidence to make their cases.

A good reminder...

Tablets to outsell portable PCs in 2013

Low cost Android tablets half the average selling price of a PC: IDC

Tablets, to no one's surprise, will outpace portable PC sales this year, according to IDC's Worldwide Tablet Tracker. Indeed, the trend came alive for me last week when I swore never to bring a portable PC to a conference again. 

Almost every reporter was using a tablet and mostly the iPad, regardless of whether he or she had an external keyboard. Laptop PCs have retained an edge over tablets given the built-in keyboard.

Collaboration is the business activity most transformed by the cloud. Cloud has made all possible. Collaborative documents editing, access from anywhere and anytime, document synchronization when online and many other features are now available with cloud based collaboration tools. This has helped SMBs to efficiently develop, become more efficient and make their employees more productive and happier. Cloud solutions developed for collaboration aim to help individuals and teams interact more and ease online teamwork.

Know your customer’s mobile persona through social media

Know your customers first to understand what they want

Kathy, my new colleague at work, has built many business relationships over the years at our workplace. On a recent conference call, she reminisced with a colleague, who quipped “You sound the same!” Nowadays, it’s only at real-life social gatherings that we get to say, “You look the same.” In the connected workplace of virtualized environments our looks and attire matter less and less.

So what does matter then? Is it just voice? I don't think so.
