If you ask a CIO today about the importance of data to their enterprises, they will likely tell you about the need to “compete on analytics” and to enable faster business decisions. At the same time, CIOs believe they “need to provide the intelligence to make better business decisions”. One CIO said it was in fact their personal goal to get the business to a new place faster, to enable them to derive new business insights, and to get to the gold at the end of the rainbow”.

7 Bad Data Habits That Hamper Sales Operation Success

Blog-post by,

It’s all too easy to fall into bad habits at the office: browsing social media, online shopping during business hours, or maybe even sneaking glimpses of World Cup matches when you should be finishing that critical report. But what about the habits we don’t even realize we’re repeating day in and day out? These commonplace behaviors can seriously damage your chances of success, especially if you’re a member of the sales team working with large amounts of customer and prospect data.

Emerging technology Twitter chat talks up Big Data, analytics

Wearables and IoT not so much, but....

We had a very robust Twitter chat about which emerging technologies and which ones aren't. Such an open ended question always sparks debate, but the answers are pretty obvious - Big Data and then cloud and are most important while the value of wearables and Internet of Things are less well understood. There was almost no mention of mobile and we had at least four CIO types in the chat!

We also danced around the issue with many Tweets talking about what would make an emerging technology important - supporting the business strategy and end users, good governance and so forth.

Our Twitter chat this Thursday asks what emerging technologies you think are the most important. And which ones will be a bust?

Our chat is 2-3 p.m. EDT on Thursday. If you want to elaborate beyond the 140 character Twitter limit, our CIO Question poses the same question. 

So far, analytics and Big Data are coming up as the most important technology. Internet of Things seems to draw the most skepticism.

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.

The question "What is Little Data" drove a robust Twitter chat Thursday. The notion of Little Data is relief from the ultimate Big Data Abstraction. First, the numbers: we had 31 participants and 260 Tweets.

We will, of course, be chatting again at the usual time next - 2-3 p.m. EDT this Thursday. Remember to use the hashtag #CIOchat 

We started with the basic question and drilled down from there. Here are some of my favorite Tweets. Occassionally, the Tweet doesn't answer the question, but is still worth mentioning.

Is Little Data just a way to make everyone feel better about the Big Data that overwhelms us? Perhaps so.

So what is Little Data? That will be the focus of our Thursday Twitter chat from 2-3 p.m. EDT. Use hashtag #CIOchat.

When Behavioral Analytics Meets Data Security

There's a new math-based method to identify threats to an organization. Understanding how it works can help us sift through the volumes of false positives and identify previously hidden threats.

Blog-post by,

Many security experts are now examining how mathematical models can be developed that determine baseline behavior across users and machines, detecting and surfacing anomalous and risky activities, and even anticipating threats before they happen. This is the promise of behavioral analytics when applied to data security. In practice, a proper implementation of the underlying mathematics and science must be combined with an ability to observe all the user and machine behaviors in real-time.

Seizing opportunity at the very busy intersection of cloud and analytics

This Tech Dossier co-produced by CIO and HP explains why the cloud may a great starting for analytics projects. 

"Developing proof-of-concept and sandboxing analytics in the cloud offers a flexible, scalable way to spin up quickly to evaluate benefits and ROI before making a significant investment. With many businesses looking at shifting more of the IT budget from capital investment to operating expenses, a cloud-based analytics strategy becomes a clear winner."
