Yes, Tesla, Musk and Napoleon were leaders 7x24. If work is your passion, do it until you drop. Earlier in my career when I was at PC Week, I frequently put in 12 hour days and was on the road three weeks a month. I was passionate about the job and journalism.

Today, costs of scaling traditional systems have grown prohibitive. So the pressure is on to find a new solution. Enter: Hadoop.
Technology has profoundly transformed the world in recent years. In the last decade alone, mobility, cloud, social media and big data have changed the landscape of IT dramatically. One group affected perhaps the most by the ever-changing landscape is the CIO.
There’s a lot of noise out there about DevOps right now—and with good reason.

The idea of extending “agility” from conception to delivery improves IT’s ability to respond to business needs.
Think about how its principles can yield meaningful results for your business.
The business intelligence insights your organization has in all the data it stores can lead to game-changing opportunities--if your analytics system has the power to uncover them. Traditional data analytics are often maxed out by big data, unable to return results in a timely fashion, resulting in missed business opportunities. Business and marketing leaders can’t execute on new ideas to generate more revenue because IT can’t support their requests to add new data sources to existing queries.
