The CIO becomes CEO of your technology business

Technology Business Management TBM

The concept of running the enterprise IT office (ITO) as a business-within-a-business is not new. Back in the 1990s, several large organisations hived off their IT departments altogether as separate new entities: think Melbourne Water (MITS, since acquired by Logica) and Amcor (Ferntree).

One important security requirement enterprises look to address is the protection of corporate data at rest on devices, and thus provide data protection in the event of a device being lost or stolen. BitLocker Drive Encryption is the Microsoft tool that can satisfy this use […]

Clinical and IT collaboration drive value-based care

It is no surprise that healthcare shares the same challenges as other industries’ purchase and implementation challenges. The difference with healthcare is that the outcomes can literally be a matter of life and death. For this reason, it is even more critical that IT learns “the businesses” it serves, with special attention to those closest […]

Data lakes, hubs and warehouses — when to use what

Lake

One particular area that has a lot of attention is the whole big data […]
