CIO Decisions E-zine – May 2015

Most organizations today work in a hybrid infrastructure, with some applications running on-premises and others in the public cloud or running as software as a service. Because of the various components involved, the task of integrating these systems and their data has become more complex, requiring new sets of tools, greater resources and a good handle on data management. But some experts predict changes ahead for systems integration, such as cloud vendors and lines of business taking on more of the job. In this issue of CIO Decisions, we explore how integration work is evolving and how new tools are emerging to enable that shift.

Also in this issue, we look at how a successful entrepreneur rebuilt his company's culture; explore how a tight CIO-CMO relationship is crucial to business success; dig deeper into PayPal's acquisition of a mobile payments startup; investigate the relevance of Generation Z to CIOs; and look into why augmentation could be a better strategy than computer automation.

  • Molding IT Infrastructure to Handle Today's Technology Demands

    The forces of mobility, cloud, security, and big data are driving vast change in the role of IT. Their combined impact is creating new business opportunities while simultaneously transforming the customer engagement model. Faced with this environment, today’s traditional hardware-centric view of IT and slow pace of innovation cannot meet future business requirements in a world where latency and scale rule the day.
