How IT Leadership Can Fundamentally Change or Affect the Culture of Your Company

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 13:00:23 -0500

Mark Roden and I spoke at the October 13th IT Leadership Strategies event run by Camp IT. This session will challenge the tendency of IT leaders to focus on the technology. Meaningful organizational impact starts with changing the culture, not changing technology. In this session, we will discuss how to cast a vision for your organization, take a realistic inventory of where you are today and build an attainable implementation roadmap. We will draw from specific examples where culture change has impacted an organization more than any technology change (for better and for worse). Key topics will include productivity, efficiency, empowered talent, and the ‘cool’ factor in transforming how IT is perceived. How IT Leadership Can Fundamentally Change or Affect the Culture of Your Company from John Head ...



Thoughts on the IBM announement on Notes and Domino #domino2025

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 13:06:31 -0500

IBM today announced IBM Notes & Domino 10, coming in the second half of 2018, along with a strategic partnership with HCL to develop the release, along with the following products: IBM Notes and Domino IBM SmartCloud Notes IBM Notes Traveler IBM Mobile Connect IBM Verse IBM Mail Support for Microsoft Outlook (IMSMO) IBM WISPR IBM Enterprise Integrator (LEI) IBM Sametime portfolio IBM Connections Chat/Meetings IBM Client Access (ICAA) This does not cover IBM Connections, the 'Pink' release, and IBM Watson Workspace. It seems the Cisco and Box relationships stay within IBM as well, but I did not confirm that. There will be a 'jam' for all of those who want to participate in what the Notes & Domino 10 release looks like, including influencing the road map. RSVP for the Jam here. My thoughts: I am excited to see new life and attention put into the products and a new major release coming next year. But reality sets in and you realize that to get that life and attention, IBM had ...



Speaking at XChange 2017 - Keynote: Livin’ On The Edge: The Tech Solutions That Will Drive Tomorrow’s Revenue

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 05:30:00 -0500

I am excited to be part of the panel keynote at XChange 2017 entitled Keynote: Livin’ On The Edge: The Tech Solutions That Will Drive Tomorrow’s Revenue. The abstract:Solution providers are always looking for the next big thing when it comes to tech solutions they can offer their customers. But placing bets isn’t so easy especially when it comes to the risk-reward ratio. Being too far out in front of a trend could spell disaster but missing out on one could result in a lost opportunity and boost to margins. Any new tech solution requires an investment in skills, sales, marketing, customer support and vendor acquisition. This panel discussion will feature partners who are the first movers adopting technologies ahead of the mainstream market and had positive results or learned valuable lessons. This panel will discuss the benefits of adopting such tech solutions as IoT; DevOps; containers; hyperconvergence; public cloud; next-gen security and mobile. Today’s reality is that solution prov ...

MWLUG 2017 BP110 The Data and Analytics Journey Why it’s more attainable for your company than ever before

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 09:00:00 -0500

I presented The Data & Analytics Journey – Why it’s more attainable for your company than ever before on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at 1:00 PM EDT at MWLUG 2017. Here is the session abstract: The typical perception of Big Data, Analytics, and Predicative/AI is that only the big companies can reap the benefits. Many believe they need a data warehouse, expensive reporting software, & an army of data scientists to get any value out of effort and cost. This session will explore and debunk that myth and showcase how companies of any size can participate. While there are many maturity models available, most are not designed to be practical guides to solving common business problems. Because of the explosion in cloud services, the barrier to entry has eroded significantly. We will look at some practical steps to access these capabilities and provide examples to where market-leading and growth companies have seen large benefits. Attendees will walk away with broader understanding of wh ...

Here is the session abstract: In this session, Kathy will take an XPages/Domino application and create the same app with Angular and Node.
