Consumer Driven IT in Review – 11th Edition

This past week the first Consumerization of IT in the Enterprise (CITE) Conference and Expo took place in San Francisco.

This past week the first Consumerization of IT in the Enterprise (CITE) Conference and Expo took place in San Francisco.  Vendors and the media were heavily represented on the agenda, but I did see a number of “non-technology” organizations scheduled to speak, including Eli Lilly, New York Mellon, NASA, Sesame Workshop, Genworth Financial Wealth Management and Hyatt Hotels.  We’ll be combing through whatever news and blogs get published post-conference, and bring you all the relevant information in an upcoming post.

Here’s what else was in the IT consumerization news in the last two weeks:

March 7:  IT departments stand in the way of innovation via STAR survey.  New UK-based survey of IT shows a lot of resistance to COIT but benefits as well.

    This is great. Hooray for Disney’s imagineers!


    become a new brand in the share market research with its accurate research. Proven
    itself always right whether market is bull or bear. Last week all paid clients
    booked handsome profit in NIFTY, BANKINIFTY & STOCKS. Now for the coming
    week we expect more correction can come in NIFTY as the IRAQ issue is getting
    more tense, If it happens more then you will see a sharp fall in all world marketNSE BSE, STOCK TIPSbecause as we know all world run on
    crude & most of the crude comes from IRAQ. So be ready for a sharp fall so
    sell will be the best strategy for next week also. Traders can make a sell
    position in NIFTY around 7600-7650 with stoploss 7750 for the target of
    7300-7200.One can also make a sell call NIFTY 50 stocks as per NIFTY levels. You

    This is a good case study. 2.3 sec’s off a login transaction is big.

    While the analysts were hyping DevOps, I posted the oversight of not including security as part of that discussion as you are highlighting here. Instead of just talking DevOps, it should be DOS (what’s old is new again :-) – DevOpsSec. As a previous AppDev person, it’s the app, who’s using it, why and where rather than the device and having the service available.

    As you rightly point, out Security should be baked into the solution.

    Nice Post and Timely!

      Thank you for your feedback Michele. Agreed – security cannot be overlooked. Appreciate your input!

    I love the idea of BYOID! This makes me choose if I am almost anonymous (with my Hotmail Nicname) or official with identity from an official organisation. My Identity Provider will attach identity with right level of LoA according to the need of the Service provider.

      Thank you for your comment. BYOID has tangible benefits for end users and relying parties but it also has to be weighed in the balance with potential risks and liability concerns. It will be interesting to see how BYOID plays out in the enterprise.
