You didn't mention health and workout metrics - oximeter, heart rate, blood pressure, pedometer, GPS, ascent/descent. I want a watch that looks like that, is easy to use and has the kitchen sink in features.
BYOD is an easy subject to have strong opinions about and that resulted in a very robust Twitter chat hour yesterday. The Tweets were flying: 279 of them from 38 rowdy participants.
The main question asked if BYOD is on the wane or plateauing based on a couple of CIO.com stories from senior online writer Tom Kaneshige. One cited a California court ruling that employees must be reimbursed for business calls made from personal phones.
I think for millennials and younger workers, mixing work and play is SOP....but unwinding is important. There's also a relationship between working at home and BYOD where you're essentially your own helpdesk and IT equipment supplier. In a way, it's taking ownership of your own IT needs.
“I want to do private cloud because I want to be more agile and because I want to be much more efficient at IT operations”.
Um. Private cloud will most certainly help you with the first objective – it will stand up development, test and production environments (i.e. server/storage/network and middleware and dev, test and production applications) much more quickly. And it will “cut IT out the loop” allowing users to have their requests actioned without humans holding up the process.
We in HP Software have created a new HP Software Cloud presentation. I"ve posted two versions. The first has a voiceover (only about 10 minutes). The second is a PDF created from showing the slides and the notes I created for each slide.
I was explaining to my teenage kids the other day what I did. I talked about how our
software products ensured that IT infrastructure was reliable. Blank look.
"What is IT infrastructure?", they asked. I said, "it's like the
power or water or sewage".
