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 .
"Is it something that makes sense organizationally AND ROI-wise?" That is the key question and it ties into how well or poorly understood CI is. How well do you think CIOs, IT or data center admins understand CI?
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.
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.
Just read an article “Nokia planning phablet for 2013”. The original information appeared in the Financial Times. Yes they put the word “phablet” into brackets, but everybody seems to know what they mean. Wonderful language that keeps expanding itself.
The world is increasingly becoming digital and interconnected. At the moment, our main focus is on human interactions, but that is changing quickly. The machine to machine communication is slowly but surely increasing.
