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.
Daniel, great post. I find it interesting that IT leaders have more automation in their processes. And leaders measure their success using KPIs aligned with business goals--showing how they bring value to the business. Good learnings here.
Looking forward to reading more posts on this subject.
Joel, as usual, a great post. A wise adage that I try to live by is: "Attitude is everything. Pick a good one." My attitude is about the only thing I control, so why not pick the positive one? Your post reminds me of earlier in my career at a different organization. One day I was behind two cars who were turning left into the employee parking lot from a busy insection. The two had a minor fender bender right in front of me. I knew them both. One was grumpy and complaining about the accident, dealing with insurance, dents on his precious car for months after the event. The other was "glad no one was hurt, we both have insurance, and there was only minor damage to the cars." Guess who got over the incident quickly and guess who was still wallowing in misery months later? I wonder if the grumpy guy would have moved on from the incident faster if he had adopted the positive attitude.
One of the most significant advantages to disaster recovery in the cloud is how cost-effective it becomes to deploy comprehensive DR plans across a company’s entire IT infrastructure. Cloud computing delivers faster recovery times and multi-site availability at a fraction of the cost of conventional disaster recovery.
There are a lot of benefits with cloud computing –
cost-effective resource use, rapid provisioning, scalability and elasticity.
