Good one, but it'll have to be done one way or another. Interestingly, I Googled and Google News-ed "mobile device security disasters" and saw all the usual Armageddon-esque BYOD headlines, but saw no actual headlines that detailed mobile device security breaches. As close as it came was a bug in the iPhone that could result in security issues...
Is there a public clearing house for specific mobile/BOYD breaches?
thanks for sharing, cloud is all about agility and elaticity, so the series of tools for cloud automation or provisitoning will help customer migrate to cloud and manage cloud more seamlessly, either for cloud maturity or cloud bursting capabilities, the right tool may help improve efficiency. thanks.
Hi, John, enjoy the blog, like BYOD, desktop virtulization is to help improve employees productivity and flexility, from business perspective, it's about agility --doing things better, faster, cheaper, and elasticity -faster to scale and easy to provitioning, either server virtulization or desktop virtulization are also the good practice & preparation for business's cloud strategy, I like what you put: it will also offer the transitional tool to shift IT into ecosystem of apps and making the long tail of destop apps aviable to mobile users,

Crowdsourcing revealed you can get people to engage in almost anything if you make a 'game' out of it, including mundane tasks. Ironically, sometimes the more inconsequential the reward for the desired behavior the more of an inducement it was.
How to Become a Rainmaker is one of my all time favorite books which offers a very useful blueprint for becoming a CIO rainmaker. This post is not a book review of How to Become a Rainmaker. It is about how CIO’s can retool their thinking to that of a CIO Rainmaker in order to raise their value contribution and set themselves apart from their peers.
(Originally posted March 3 on The Higher Ed CIO) IT performance management requires a balanced scorecard approach using both internally and externally oriented metrics that are also a good mix of leading and lagging indicators.
The role of IT was never static. Technology changes alone bring about major changes in the role of IT and influence the future of IT. This really should not be debateable since we see everyday how technology changes redefine various professions or business functions through automation and simplification. Yet, when you describe a future of IT that is less strategic people get upset and accuse you of being a contrarian just for the sake of it.
If more IT departments functioned like human resources or facilities and worried less about being strategic there would be fewer complaints about IT and CIO’s would be happier for it. The support for this belief comes from the consumerization and democratization of technology which is accelerating the shift to commodity services and enabling more decision making by non-IT folks while rendering more and more of the technology stack decisions irrelevant.
Evaluating IT investments for funding is one process where using a simpler approach is not always better. That is because the process of evaluating IT investments should involve an two step process for each project under consideration in order to support an objective IT project ranking of all proposals and ultimately, the IT project selection decision.
