Across a broad swath of 11 industries, "data mining and analysis" and "private cloud" are in a dead heat as the top two strategic initiatives, according to PwC's 6th annual Digital IQ survey. Data mining is not a top initiative in technology (seems odd) and private cloud was absent from the retail & consumer sector.

To one degree or another, shadow IT has to be allowed by CIOs and IT departments. That's because no matter what, employees are going use whatever they can to help them perform better.

So offering safer alternatives are the best bets for CIOs although they cannot possibly keep up with all Shadow IT not to mention know about all of it and where it resides.

Discover new avenues for business on The Strip at Las Vegas

Modernizing Vegas with the New Style of IT

“The New Style of IT will drive new avenues for you to do business,” reads the abstract for the HP Discover DT3564 session. That sentence rings true to me – like a persistent musical jingle. Enjoying the glorious view of the fascinating island of colorful lights in an otherwise barren landscape from my window seat, I am mesmerized by what Las Vegas is today – labyrinth of casinos and architectural marvels with no breathing space.

Has technology become a dirty word for IT?

IT has been beaten over the head to fully embrace the business. Where does than leave technology?

CIO Martin Davis wrote an excellent post about the guiding principles for successful IT projects. One of them - a question really - jumped out at me, so much so I thought it was worth a separate discussion.

Here it is: "Process first then technology: traditional approach is sort out the process first, then look for the technology."

Standardization is a fertile ground for automation pan enterprise

Why automated efficiency is music to the ears of many organizations

Blog-post by,

I’m at a classical music concert. The Concert Master tunes the orchestra before the performance by playing a single note on their violin. This pitch sets the standard for the performance as various pieces are played to holistically produce sounds which – when orchestrated right – are music to my ears. Enterprises must have standards too when it comes to their business processes, services and enabling tools. Projects and initiatives must be cognizant of these standards while adopting them pan-enterprise.
