The Internet of Things (IoT): an intriguing yet enigmatic term that affects roughly 2 billion people who live their day-to-day lives in some degree of dependence on the Internet. It’s already enormous, it will be absolutely pervasive, and it raises questions about your data center that you may not have considered yet: How will it affect your power and cooling systems? What does it mean for sustainability?

CIO Leadership, IT Performance

Is your IT organization leading or lagging the rest of the business?

Blog-post by Myles Suer, Mon, 07/20/2015 - 18:52

Today’s IT leaders need to do a lot more than create agile IT organizations. While putting in place an enterprise architecture that can change at the pace of business remains foundational, the question is are IT leaders leading or lagging their enterprise’s next wave of digital transformation.

A "hands on" IT culture of execution

Interview with Sandisk CIO and SVP Ravi Naik

Blog-post by John Dodge, Mon, 06/22/2015 - 16:05

In early May, I had a wide ranging conversation with Sandisk CIO and SVP Ravi Naik about security, cloud, Big Data, his biggest challenges and other IT issues. Besides IT, he is responsible for the memory maker's far flung global real estate -- it has 20 facilities with engineering labs and chip fabs in India, California, Israel, South Korea and Japan. He spoke fast in our 47 minute interview and flew right over my question (several, actually): "Do you ever sleep?"  But he talked substantially and openly. Here are the highlights.

It's been a great four and a half year run at the Enterprise CIO Forum and it comes to an end for me this Friday when I retire.

Yes, I have reached "full retirement age" in the eyes of the Feds so it's time. Sometimes, I refrain from using the 'r' word because I will freelance parttime as a journalist as I feel my way through the next journey.

Is the cloud cheaper?

#CIOchat to discuss Thursday

Blog-post by John Dodge, Tue, 07/07/2015 - 18:53

Is the cloud cheaper than running your own data center and servers? While many agree the cloud is generally the cheaper option, you have to factor in a lot considerations such as the financial impact of losing access to data or a hack. Does cloud make sense for certain apps and not for others? What about bandwidth?  

The cost question is not a simple one. On top of that, enterprises move to the cloud for many more reasons - many strategic - than just to save money.

    Understanding the core technology for storage may assist in understanding the storage solutions provided by vendors.  The lexicon will assist us in making more "educated" decisions related to storage.  Storage represents a large cost in our infrastructure, and will continue to do so in the years to follow.  Understanding more about storage will allow all consumers to optimize performance and develop strategies to drive down operating expense.
