They say it is the sexiest job in the 21st century in the world of Big Data – the Data Scientist. Emergence of new tools and techniques are empowering them to effectively glean the gold mine of information. Given the volume of data to be processed, it would almost seem like a job tailor-made for computers only. True, computers can certainly perform these computations … but can they think? Not as effectively as the human brain.

The appearance of a new CEO often signals a subsequent reorganization with a cadre of new lieutenants. After all, any leader wants loyal underlings who share the same vision and its leaders.

The same is true for CIOs who want to take the next step toward helping their organizations become a digital enterprise. Chief among the obstacles are a lack of urgency and the slow pace of change.

When Deloitte released its CIO Survey 2013, nearly half of the respondents indicated a desire to further their careers in roles beyond IT. Moving to a career outside of IT—and into the COO or CEO role— “may have been unlikely in the past,” the report concluded, “but … attitudes and aspirations on this are starting to change.”

This may come as a shock, but CIOs are introverts.

This obvious but interesting conclusion is from a new study from the Berlin-based European School of Management and Technology, according to a story in Computerworld UK. I could not find the study at ESMT's web site, but it did point to the Computerworld UK story.

Data Security & Cyber Privacy: Circumstances Have Changed, and So Should IT

Blog-post by,
KPadir

Lately, it feels like data breaches are making headlines daily. The breaches at Target and Neiman-Marcus, for example, have raised a crescendo of concern that is certainly justified but sometimes a little off base. In particular, there’s confusion over the distinction between online privacy and online security. Some of the commentators have simply been echoing Sun CEO, Scott McNealy’s comments dating back to 1999, suggesting that we all just “get over it” and learn to live without online privacy.

You are correct in thinking this blog post title is a play on words. Indeed it is. I mean to say that yes indeed every enterprise is a target in the sense that they are targeted for a breach. I also mean that we, collectively, are all prone to the exact same alleged failure that caused the massive breach at Target.
