New Year’s Day 2015
As I sat watching the Rose Bowl (not that I am a big follower of college football, I’m more of a pro football/college basketball kind of fan), but it is an annual tradition to watch the Pac 10 battle the Big 10, oh, wait, someone already screwed up THAT tradition. Oh, well, it’s not like IU ever played it in anyway. Anyway, as Oregon began to dominate (ok, right after the National Anthem), I thought it would be interesting to look back over my tweets of 2014 and see what insights into IT were captured by what I had shared. I was struck by the breadth of knowledge, experience, and subjects that had been covered. I could not think of a better place to share some of these posts than on Intel’s IT Peer Network.
A couple of things before we dive in. First, many (but certainly not all) of these posts came via the Top 100 CIOs to Follow on Twitter by Vala Afshar. If you are not following these folks and you are in IT, you should be! Second, to further set the stage think back to the start of 2014 by checking out the projected trends for the year in Top Ten Strategic Technology Trends for 2014 from Gartner.
So without any further ado, and in no particular order...
That last post is from Isaac Sacolick, as I created my original list, I had over a half dozen posts from Isaac. If you follow one blog in 2015 you would do well to follow Isaac’s Social, Agile and Transformation...(ok, in addition to this one (“The CIO is Dead, Long Live the CIO”), Rivers of Thought and my LinkedIn blog).
So that week between the Playoffs and the Super Bowl, when there is nothing else to do except watch the thermometer drop; why not spend some time clicking through these blog posts? Trust me, you will come away with more than one nugget for 2015!
Have a great 2015! Be sure and drop me a line with how things are going in your IT Department with the Top Ten Strategic Technology Trends for 2015.
