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.  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:

  1. It’s scary that NASA is considered a “non-technology organization”!

  2. Thanks for your comment! With apologies to the very technology-intensive NASA, the term I should have used is “non-technology vendor” meaning their principal purpose isn’t to sell products used for IT consumerization but to use them!
