      IT priorities 2017: A mix of forward-looking and traditional tech

      Our ninth annual IT Priorities Survey indicates data centers will address upgrades and infrastructure improvements and take on new and emerging technologies.

      We asked how IT spends most of their time, with the following responses:  general IT management (cited by 27% of respondents), security (23%) and networking (22%) were the most cited activities, but they were followed by a fairly bunched up cluster that ranged from application development (19%) to the trending DevOps (8%).

    2. IoT evolution begs for new thinking, new value systems

      IoT evolution begs for new thinking, new value systems

      Who owns IoT data? The more pertinent question raised by the evolution of IoT is what does humanity look like in an IoT age, says Harvey Koeppel.

      The problem with thinking about how we protect the data generated by IoT and how we determine ownership of IoT data is that we are trying to apply the same old rules and methodologies to a completely different context for which the old rules and methodologies were never conceived or intended.

      IT priorities for 2016: Spending rises but at a lower rate

      IT shops have big plans for 2016, with projects like data center consolidation and big data analytics figuring prominently, along with a shift to more cloud services.

      If IT in 2016 had an official theme, it would be something like "control, contain and protect." While that might sound like a police force motto, it accurately describes the top priorities of IT professionals as they look forward through the end of the year.

    4. Intel's job cuts: The 'PC is dead' or PC evolution?

      Intel's job cuts: The 'PC is dead' or PC evolution?

      Intel sheds 12,000 jobs in its shift away from PCs. The PC is dead -- or is it?

      Intel's Stacy Smith, who is moving from the CFO role to head up the company's sales, manufacturing and operations, made it clear the state of the PC is not good:

      We are seeing growth in the data center, Internet of Things, security and programmable solutions, which all helped offset a weak PC market.

      But dead? Not now, not yet, said J.P. Gownder, a principal analyst at Forrester Research.

      Guy Kawasaki on the art of innovation: Ten steps

      As the top executive in charge of information technology, CIOs are feeling a lot of pressure to innovate. Or they should be.

      According to Gartner, CEOs expect business revenue from digital offerings to increase more than 80% by 2020. For companies to keep up with the push to digital, IT departments must function not only as IT service providers but also as innovation partners to the business. But how exactly does innovation happen? And how do CIOs sell the idea that IT is prepared to drive business strategy?

      As the former 'chief evangelist' at Apple, Guy Kawasaki has had plenty ...

      As use of mobile apps for employees grows, so does CIO role

      Companies today are facing an increasing demand for mobile apps, not just from customers, but also from employees and clients. And more likely than not, the development of those apps is being done outside of IT. Case in point: Data from a 2015 survey by 451 Research found that over the next two years, only 35% of mobile apps will be internally developed; the rest will be built by business application vendors, systems integrators, digital agency partners and developer partners.

    7. Without an ITSM strategy, there is no digital transformation

      Without an ITSM strategy, there is no digital transformation

      In case you have not yet heard it from every IT vendor, non-IT vendor, neighbor, friend and analyst, we are in the age of the digital transformation.

      This age means that we do mobile first (or mobile only?), everything is software-defined, 40% of the Fortune 100 will fail in the next five years or six months or something like that, IT (including the CIO) will soon report to a chief digital officer. Everything is now different.

      If digital transformation is on your CIO agenda, then a top-of-class ITSM strategy had better be also. CTO Niel Nickolaisen speaks from experience.
