Our weekly Twitter chat yesterday zeroed in defining converged infrastructure (CI) and the rationale behind it. CI is a hot topic for CIOs and is being driven by the search for efficiencies and better productivity in the context of cloud, Big Data and mobile.

First the numbers for yesterday's chat: 32 participants and 230 Tweets (at least three were CIOs).

Our questions were: what is CI?; how big a priority is it for 2014? and what is hyper-CI?

Use the hashtag #CIOchat to view the full stream of 230 Tweets between 2-3 p.m. EDT Thursday. We'll be back next week.

Converged Infrastructure is one of those fuzzy but self-defining technology terms. Let's dissect the term.

Converge: "come from different directions and meet at (a place)" or "gradually change so as to become similar or develop something in common." (source: The Internet, unnamed)

Infrastructure: "The basic physical and organizational structures and facilities (e.g., buildings, roads, and power supplies) needed for the operation of a society or enterprise." (source: The Internet, unnamed)

CRN's slideshow about Gartner's new "Magic Quadrant" on converged infrastructure does a nice job indentifying the leaders, challengers, visionaries and niche players. The vertical axis is ability to execute and the horizontal axis is completeness of vision.

CIO Leadership, Converged Infrastructure

A decade of change led us to infrastructure convergence. Do you really understand it?

Sift through the confusion and gain some clarity

Blog-post by,
Duncan Campbell

Based on some of the comments I’ve read in my last few blog posts where there is still some confusion about infrastructure convergence, so I thought it was time to level-set. Like many of you, I’ve been in IT since the 1980s, and it seems to me the focus of computing infrastructure changes about every decade. This type of shift happens once every 10 to 15 years – like the shift from the mainframe to the client server… from the client server to Web 1.0… from Web 1.0 to mobile and web services. And now we’re deeply rooted in the era of convergence.

Many enterprises know they need to move to the cloud, but they don’t have a sense of how to get there. While you hear a lot about the advantages of cloud, there’s risk associated with doing it wrong or going in without a plan.

4 Rules for Knowing When to Invest in Big Data

Blog-post by,

There’s not a day that goes by where I don’t read about the CIO of some billion dollar company claiming that Big Data has saved his company untold sums of money.  A one percent efficiency increase identified by Big Data resulted in some few million in savings.  Segmentation of transactional sales mapped to a unified customer database revealed a 10% increase in alternate channel sales of related products.   Well, at least we know they’re not liars; a recent Bain and Company stud
