Challenges in technology to meet enterprise needs in 2013 and expectations

I see two pressing issues that we have to come to terms with:

1) Version and vendor compatibility: The battle between browsers, formats and OS platforms is forcing a growing divide between what companies support and even limiting the ability to upgrade to newer versions because of in compatibilities.

2) BYOD versus the expectation that IT systems and version are the latest and greatest: SaaS models provide some interesting capabilities but pricing and integration are where they need to be for all company sizes.

The areas in business environment where solutions do not exist yet

Interoperability and security are areas that need to come along and be maintainable within an organization.

Technology trends impacting enterprise business environment

Cloud services and remote accessibility trends and capabilities will be key areas to watch in the next couple of years.

My roles and responsibilities as a CIO

CIOs will continue to be business partners and spend a majority of their time solving business problems and providing efficiencies across all business lines.

Lessons learned as a CIO

It’s all about the business and how IT can support and enhance business functions and not how the business supports IT.
