Denver Broncos’ quarterback, Peyton Manning threw his record-breaking 509th touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers.  A moment of glory for Manning who would have thrown many more times out of which there were 509 glorious touchdowns.  Applications Transformation principles are not very different.  While business objectives drive the strategy and roadmap to get to that future state, enterprise transformation happens one application at a time – or in Manning’s words, one throw at a time.  I am no quarterback but would like to think like one by applying simila

Cloud computing is driving change in all aspects of business, large and small. Some of the most common uses include dev/test, data archiving, storage, and disaster recovery. Everyone is familiar with SaaS players such as Salesforce and Workday and storage options such as Google Drive, iCloud, OneDrive, and Dropbox. Cloud-based collaboration tools such as Mikogo and Vyew are proliferating as well.

Ten Cyber Security Resources

Cost per cyber attack rises dramatically.

Blog-post by,

The results of the fifth annual Cost of Cyber Crime study, conducted by the Ponemon Institute shows just how much cybercrime has spread from 2013 to 2014. Did you know that the average cost of a cyber attack is now around $12.7 million dollars—up from $11.6M last year? Or that the time to resolve these attacks has increased 41% to 45 days?

These are eye opening statistics.

Our #CIOchat question this week explores where the cloud will in 2020. The question - which is being asked in many quarters - was inspired by a post by ECF blogger Rick Delgado at Tech Cocktail. There's no shortage of hyperbole about how the cloud will transform businesses in the next six short years (technology has a habit of making time go faster than many of us want).

I recently wrote a post about the emerging role of the Chief Data Officer (CDO). The CDO’s skill set varies drastically from the CIO, who typically has been concerned with running the data center and enterprise software. Instead, the CDO concentrates on how to incorporate data that resides within the enterprise with data that lives on external, consumer-facing platforms (Facebook, for example) — and how to make money in the process.

How IT can leverage “shift left” to show business value

The idea behind shift left is to simplify a solution by removing a single step, thus making the solution faster than it currently is. It certainly gets people’s attention — whenever I mention it, I’m invariably asked to give more detail about how it can be leveraged for a particular client’s customers.

After blogging about my personal experience with loss of access to data on my device, there have been some unrelated developments in the industry that mirror some of my own thoughts and experiences.  What is intriguing is some of the steps we take to secure our information as individuals and families at home may very well be the same thoughts that could apply at an enterprise level.  Enterprise Security can begin at home with our own personal experiences.  Let me explain.

Blog-post by,

Cloud computing provides a great list of benefits to large companies and users all over the world, from providing scalability on demand services to empowering the mobility of the workforce. However, the path to adoption for small and medium size businesses (SMBs) is less clear. This is why I’ve outlined some key considerations for SMBs looking to migrate to a cloud computing infrastructure.
