CIO Leadership, Cloud

A road less travelled: Adapt so you continue to add value!

One organization’s cloud journey

Blog-post by,

Recently, I have been writing about where IT is going as a business function. I got a lot of responses to my last post on the topic, “Announcing the death of traditional ERP, shared services, and the owned datacenter,” and I have continued to keep my eye on the market and current trends.

Last week, I met with an architect at a major financial organization. He said that his company is going through major changes as its business and IT strategies have converged.

As you probably know by now, I have the opportunity to talk to many CIOs about cloud and how to take some of their activities to the cloud. As long as we discuss options, concepts, offerings etc. the discussion is animated. But at one moment, THE question pops up. How can we go after this? How do we start?

Private vs. Public Cloud for BI

As I mentioned before, migrating to the cloud it doesn’t have to be hard or expensive. When migrating to the cloud, there are many options including on-ramping solutions which leverage server templates provided by cloud providers; automation tools to rebuild apps into a provider’s stack; migration attempts to move servers as-is.

Last week I was talking to public sector clients who are in the process of moving to cloud. We discussed how best to do that, knowing they want to stay vendor independent, and the subject of the service broker was discussed in quite some details. However, technology is not the most difficult aspect of that transition. It’s actually the evolution of the organization. We spend quite some time discussing that aspect of things.

Blog-post by,

Collaboration is the business activity most transformed by the cloud. Cloud has made all possible. Collaborative documents editing, access from anywhere and anytime, document synchronization when online and many other features are now available with cloud based collaboration tools. This has helped SMBs to efficiently develop, become more efficient and make their employees more productive and happier. Cloud solutions developed for collaboration aim to help individuals and teams interact more and ease online teamwork.

Public v. private cloud is not the issue. It's cloud complexity.

Hybrid delivery becoming the norm for large enterprises.

More and more articles point to the uptake of cloud in enterprises. And, if I believe the interactions I have with CIOs, it is definitely the case. The big question is whether to go private or public cloud. That, in my mind, is the wrong question. I’ve already mentioned several times that “one size does not fit all” when we talk about the cloud.

Companies optimized for the cloud win in today’s market

Blog-post by,

Although enterprises are still in the early stages of adopting Big Data solutions, these technologies are among the fastest-growing cloud-based tools.  The move to cloud computing is challenging the computer industry, and at the heart of this are the Big Data and the built for cloud scalable database platforms that enable it. As demand grows, applications are able to add new computing nodes, and each additional node adds capacity to serve more clients.

IT is dead, says ZDNet blogger

IT function will be spread across other business units.

JD Irving CIO Martin Davis once said there are no IT projects...just projects with an IT element. Those would seem to support the argument in this ZDNet post that IT's days are numbered...that it will be reduced to overseeing "low value technical plumbing."

That might be an extreme view, but here's the operative paragraph in this provocative post:
