In my youth, tuning the carburetors once a week and adjusting the distributor was routine maintenance on my 1964 Mini Cooper S. It would take a few minutes on a Saturday morning, and the car would run great for the entire week.  As I grew older, tuning the 1964 Mini Cooper every week became less of a joy and more of a burden. I did not want to risk myself or my family being stranded by an old car. As a result, in 2015, some 35 years later, we still love driving the 1964 Mini, although if we have to drive a distance, the 2011 Mini is always used.

In my previous post, I explained my view of how internal IT should price its cloud services. Today I am going to look at planning, the second of the 4Ps of cloud finance. These are the issues you need to consider when determining how internal IT can recover the cost of its services from business units in ways that support the cloud goals of speed of execution, a variable cost model, and cost transparency:

Four steps: The CIO’s guide to infrastructure cyber security

Blog-post by Gene De Libero, Sun, 03/15/2015 - 00:27

Cybersecurity is the number one concern for CIOs in state security for 2015 – and no wonder. State security systems house an enormous amount of data on any number of people, organizations, and even infrastructures – but keeping your organization’s data safe is just as important.

Protecting Source Code and Other IP with Behavioral Analytics

Blog-post by Stephan Jou, Mon, 03/09/2015 - 15:16

Nothing shakes the worlds of those in charge of businesses, engineering teams or information technology more than an attack on their intellectual property (IP): the source code, product designs, formulae, process engineering documents and related assets that are a company's most valuable IP.

Leader of the pack: IT infrastructure in black leather

Blog-post by Gene De Libero, Sat, 03/07/2015 - 20:28

You want to make sure the infrastructure you put in place now, and the additions you make to it in the future, put you in a top position. While you probably don’t care about whether or not you’re as cool as the Fonz, you do want your infrastructure to exude the same level of service and confidence your enterprise does.
