The great thing about CIO Summit events is they provide a chance to network with IT leaders and discuss their real-world concerns in a informal manner. One such concern is, unsurprisingly, Cloud computing and how has the potential to radically transform the IT asset landscape. While CIOs want to move their server infrastructure to the Cloud over the next decade, it is interesting to consider what the roadblocks to such a massive shift might be.22 Jul / Written by Rodney Gedda
In past blogs I’ve written about how integrating Cloud services will become – if it isn’t already – a core duty of CIOs managing multiple applications both in-house and externally.21 Jun / Written by Rodney Gedda
In a recent discussion with a few CIOs the topic of data portability between Cloud services came up.

One of the great things about working on <i>CIO</i> is I get to speak with IT leaders about their pressing issues in an informal way. Casual meetings with CIOs doesn’t qualify as industry research of course, but it’s certainly a good indication of what their requirements and pain-points are. This was none more apparent when two CIOs recently agreed on what is needed to get in-house infrastructure into the cloud.13 Jan / Written by Rodney Gedda
A few decades ago, when moving workloads from the mainframe and other high-end boxes to commodity servers was causing a sensation, the industry coined the term ‘open systems’.
