  • Hey Heath -- I'd say all of those things, and leadership too. CIOs need to be at the front of evaluating consumer and social apps for use in the enterprise, figuring out ways to give employees the functionality and experiences they have access to so easily and cheaply outside the corporate environment but with all the necessary security and compliance built in.

  • Would love to see what you said over the slides, but you can get the general gist. I think one of the most interesting things is the consumerization of IT. As IT tools services become more people-friendly, what's the role of the IT professional? Management, maintenance, compliance, security?

  • Technology is so pervasive in our lives, businesses and culture today that it’s easy to forget how brief the history of information technology really is. It’s astounding to see how fast things have moved over the past 20 years. As consumers, we all take things for granted that just 20 or even 10 years ago would have seemed impossible.
