Our #CIOchat yesterday argued the merits of #BigData and how much traction it is getting. No one doubted its importance, but a few went back to square one by asking for a crisper definition of the term. Therein lies part of the problem: there's no universal definition for #Big Data (to me, it's analytics that looks at more data).

Is Big Data catching on or does confusion and entropy remain its biggest challenges? Could it be both in that companies recognize the "urgency" to fully exploit analytics and Big Data, but have yet to get their acts together.

That will be our #CIOchat question this week: Is Big Data catching on or is it moving too slow? We chat 2-3 pm ET Thursday, hashtag #CIOchat .

There used to be a saying that no one ever got fired for buying IBM. Six year hence, that same saying might be applied to the cloud. No ever ever got fired for buying the cloud. More to the point, someone will get fired for NOT buying the cloud.

That was the consensus of our Twitter chat last Thursday asking where will the cloud be by 2020?

IT is all about data!

4 areas to make sure your data up to snuff

Blog-post by Myles Suer, Fri, 10/17/2014 - 16:29

Is this how you think about IT? Or do you think of IT in terms of the technology it deploys instead? I recently was interviewing a CIO at Fortune 50 Company about the changing role of CIOs. When I asked him about which technology issues were most important, this CIO said something that surprised me. He said, “IT is all about data. Think about it. What we do in IT is all about the intake of data, the processing of data, the store of data, and the analyzing of data. And we need, from data, to increasingly provide the intelligence to make better decisions”.

Why the infrastructure teams should not lead cloud charge

Think longer term when migrating to cloud instead of one and done.

Infrastructure teams tend to think shorter term and as a consequence are often ill-suited to lead cloud migrations. How do I know? I've had contact with three customers recently where the marching orders were to move quickly and invest as little as possible in the migration. The goal was to reduce costs move by shuttering data centers and manage multiple suppliers.

Many enterprises are still in the beginning stages of their Big Data journey. It’s tremendously useful, therefore, to look out to what trailblazers are doing with their business data. I was at a conference where I had a chance to hear Facebook CIO Tim Campos speak about how the social network approached Big Data. His insights were so compelling I wanted to share them with readers.

A colleague prompted me to make the case for OpenStack and I think it deserves deep consideration from enterprise CIOs in the midst for forumlating their cloud strategies.

Ten Cyber Security Resources

Cost per cyber attack rises dramatically.

Blog-post by Kate Senie, Thu, 10/16/2014 - 02:02

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.
