What a difference a few months make. I’ve been Intel’s CIO for the past 8 months—a long time given the speed at which the business and IT are changing. This became obvious in preparing our 1st mid-year report. Annual reports no longer seem sufficient. In our report, you’ll find insights, lessons learned and the results we are striving for as we collaborate with Intel’s business units to drive business growth, employee productivity, and efficiencies across Intel.
Here’s a glimpse into some of the content included in the mid-year report:
- How the development of advanced business intelligence solutions across Intel is yielding significant business results in the areas of manufacturing, security, sales and marketing and product design.
- How the deployment of Intel’s first open source private cloud is enabling us to advance our cloud beyond compute IaaS and deliver services faster and cheaper.
- How our BYOD program has helped Intel gain 2.75M hours of employee productivity in the past 6 months.
- How social media techniques like crowdsourcing and gamification are providing insights into improving Intel, advancing our business and developing new products
Culture change is another big focus for the leaders in IT. With the landscape changing all around us, we are focused upon building a culture of “possibility thinking” across IT, one where our employees challenge the status quo, take informed risks and use disciplined collaboration to drive changes into the environment and innovate (see the story about ‘IT on the Go’ vending machines that dispense PC peripherals).
