We write a lot of pessimistic things about the CIO role so it's gratifying when the ones who are thriving are celebrated. With that I give you the just out Premier IT100 Class of 2015 from Computerworld.
As you might imagine, many of them are from companies whose primary business is technology - Paypal, Verizon, Intel and Microsoft. But enterprises such as Proctor & Gamble, Johnson Controls, Lockheed Martin and the City of Las Vegas give the Class of 2015 some organizational diversity.
Ceratinly, that is a key question. That Google, FB and Yahoo blew off the Stanford cyber security summit ceratinly is not a good sign that they will share with the Feds. And they probably have more cyber sec info than the rest of the F200 combined. Sharing has to be done, though. We are in uncharted waters with cyber crime and the hack that brings done the grid or takes over our drones could be catastrophic. Privacy is being redefined as I write this.
"a borderless enterprise, where there is a seamless user experience pushing heightened productivity and security." That's the ideal, anyway. There'll never be borderless companies just like they'll never be borderless countries.
The number of small/medium businesses in the world is growing. This is, of course, recognized by governments – many Prime Ministers and Presidents are looking to SMB’s to lead their countries out of recession.
I see this trend inside HP marketing. We are increasingly using SMB’s for campaign material generation, newsletter generation, and so on.
