Is Your Enterprise Trading the Present for the Future?

Don’t Let Your Storage Strategy Stall

by Kurt Hildebrand | Thursday, July 30, 2015

CIOs have a lot on their plates. The balancing act of investing in the future and maximizing operational efficiency today is a constant battle that bleeds into every big decision. So where do you invest your resources? The popular answer might be: transforming IT today so that tomorrow you can focus on business strategy. That’s just great. Really. Unfortunately, the rest of the organization thinks all of that should have been done yesterday. So while you know you’re adding value to the company and making IT more agile, a lot of other departments see your department as more of a drag than an engine. That’s not going to help your job security is it?

The 2015 State of the CIO survey shows that CIOs spend the majority of their time in transformational activities now, but in 3–5 years, 72% of CIOs believe they will (or want to) focus more on business strategy. This transition suggests that many organizations are seeking to currently transform their infrastructure while simultaneously acknowledging how important it is to look into future tech.

But which is more pertinent to a CIO, whose average tenure at an organization is only 5 years, according to the same study? And how does he or she balance the responsibilities of current transformation with the need to prove their strategic value?

What about the Devices?

Why You May Want to Upgrade Your Systems to Windows 10

by Jonathan Clark | 07.27.15

Interesting fact about Windows 10: it’s not going to work as well with a device that’s not Microsoft-created. So for all of us who have a fondness for products outside of the Microsoft realm, this is something to consider. On a broader scale—for business and enterprise—it may be a big deal.

Most of us are used to having the freedom to utilize our own devices—BYOD is virtually standard in many companies today, and employees may well expect it to be the norm. But working from home or the coffee shop down the street may soon mean bringing a company-owned device with you as Windows 10 enters the picture.
