I promised you a part II to my 2015 predictions and here they are. In part I, I focused largely on the cloud and many of its moving parts. I am a little more expansive here. As always, let me know what you think.

With the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) generating a tech news geyser this week, I wondered about the clouds behind all those gadgets. We are talking millions if not billions of clouds, all data silos in their own right.

CIO Leadership, IT Performance

It is all about the 'I' in CIO

'I' stands for innovation as much as information. Here's six ideas to make innovation happen.

Blog-post by Myles Suer, Thu, 12/18/2014 - 16:47

For most, the “I” in CIO stands for Information. But what about that other “I”, Innovation? For many IT organizations, 60-80% of IT spending continues to be tied up in keeping the IT lights on. But innovation matters more than ever to the business bottom line. According Geoffrey Moore, “without innovation, offerings become more and more like each other. They commoditize.” (“Dealing with Darwin”, Geoffrey Moore, page 1).

I just came across a PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP report that does a good job of articulating the importance of the CIO-CMO relationship. Hopefully, the quote from the report helps drive home the point.

Banks could make retailers pay for poor data and security governance

Federal judge rules in favor of banks.

Blog-post by Myles Suer, Tue, 12/16/2014 - 23:20

A couple months ago, I reached out to a set of CIOs on the importance of good governance and security. All of them agreed that both were incredible important. However, one CIO retorted a very pointed remark by saying that “the IT leadership at these breached companies wasn’t stupid”. He continued by saying that when selling the rest of the C-Suite, the discussion needs to be about business outcomes and business benefits.  For this reason, he said that CIOs have struggled at selling the value of investments in governance and security investment.
