The Hidden 80/20 of IT Spend: Where to Mine for Savings - by @jasondbusch
"On the webinar, I’ll be sharing quite a bit more on the topic of how best to drive IT category savings, as well as picking the brains of category experts who have much deeper knowledge than I do. But for now, I’ll tease you with a few ideas below on the category savings side. (Hint: Driving IT category savings starts with the same strategies and techniques that you would apply to other areas from a strategic sourcing and category management perspective.)"

Handling Endless Disagreements with the “Disagree and Commit” and “New Information” Principles - by @kellblog
"So, the principle is simple: if you want to re-open discussion on something we’ve already decided, do you have any new information that wasn’t available at the time we made the decision?

If the answer is no, we’re not re-opening it here, and we can do at either next quarter’s ops review or next year’s strategy offsite (pending prioritization against other topics)."

IFS joins Salesforce Ohana
"The announcement comes as a slight surprise but is no doubt in part due to the presence on the board of Craig Conway. Conway joined the IFS board in August 2016 but has been a member of the Salesforce board since 2005. It suddenly brings another potential acquisition ERP target for Salesforce into play. There is little information available about how deep the integration with Sales Cloud is but it will be interesting to see whether IFS build other interfaces."

Dealing with convergence of marketing ops and sales ops. As new business models emerge and B2B and B2C models converge to P2P approaches, the traditional functional fiefdoms of marketing and sales seem quite antiquated. Organizations must decide if inside sales should belong in marketing or customer success reside with sales. This convergence and orchestration creates havoc on traditional structures but ultimately provide a customer centric approach."

Top 10 Excuses to Not Implement Best Practices and 5 Things to do About it
"#1 — Make Failure Real

Companies spend a lot of time studying success stories as a means to derive best practices. This can be a lot like looking at someone’s vacation pictures and it is not evident that the specific best practices identified led to the result. It has been proven that the avoidance of pain is a bigger motivator than the opportunity for pleasure. Exposing the Sr. Executive team to real disasters and having them envision what it might be like for your company will get them asking the right questions (this is the reason they show those DUI crash site movies to kids in driver’s education)."

A CFO Success Story: Sajid Malhotra, CFO of Limelight Networks - by @dergelCFO
"SD: What challenges did you face becoming CFO when you were not classically trained for the role?

SM: I was at the right place at the right time. There was an abrupt departure of the CFO and I expressed interest to be the next CFO. I knew that the role would be a challenge but I felt, based on the underlying support team, there was low probability of failure and a very high probability of success. I felt I possessed the right skill set to turnaround the business for all stakeholders and wanted to take on the challenge of being a key member to turn a broken business into a successful one. Despite the position being outside of my comfort zone, I recognized, it was an opportunity I should not pass up."

Understanding the Long-term Leap to the Cloud
"Cloud vendors are not offering the compelling discounting levels they offered on the initial investments when it comes to additional solutions. Some cloud vendors quickly “disremember” the discounting provided to early adopters and treat each order form independently from the others. This means that the additional solutions executed in the separate order forms could be well below market (e.g., off by 15-30%) when compared to the discounting received on your initial investment."

The Ever-Changing Roles of the Developer: How to Adapt and Thrive

This increased visibility is a good thing, overall. When it comes to measurement, there is a whole bunch of wrong ways to do it, among them measuring lines of code or the number of deploys. In fact, this very visibility, inherent to all of the data we now constantly measure, has been a great boon to DevOps."

True, there has been mass displacement and the actual roles that remain are very different, but overall more jobs have been created. He doesn’t think artificial intelligence, or intelligence assistance, or machine learning, or whatever term you want to use will be any different."

That SAP CEO McDermott said in a Q&A (see a Storify Tweet Story here) that he would be open to e.g. integrate with perennial co-opetitor Oracle, speaks signs of the flexibility and pragmatism that is lived now at the top of both companies, always a good sign for customers."

[Looking further out] we are moving to systems of intelligence when you rely on automation and machines to make decisions in real time,” and that’s where they ultimately see it going, he said."

Gartner Purchase of Corporate Executive Board Would Address Changes in IT Advisory Market
"Despite their big advantages, the big IT analyst shops face disruption. They face perpetual accusations of pay-for-play bias. Many techies say they know more about the topics than the analyst briefing them. A three-part podcast hosted by Kea Company describes how many smaller companies address these shortcomings."

10 Use Cases in Supply Chain for Hyperledger - by @lcecere
"The Hyperledger project aims to bring together a number of independent efforts to develop open protocols and standards, by providing a modular framework that supports different components for different uses. This would include a variety of blockchain technology variants with their own consensus and storage models, and services for identity, access control, and contracts. In the Networks of Network testing in the spring of 2017, we will be using the IBM version of blockchain to test the use of hyperledger to improve network on boarding."

How Shell Oil Is Taking DevOps and Agile to the Cutting Edge
"Of course, another important way to measure success in the oil and gas industry is whether or not it complied. For agile and Scrum in the heavily regulated worlds, certainly “compliant” is another definition of “done.”

Measuring cultural changes is always a challenge, but it’s a particular hurdle for such a large multinational."

Your cloud strategy must include no-cloud options - by @davidlinthicum
"Ironically but critically, the no-cloud option is an important component to your cloud computing strategy. Having a no-cloud option may seem counterintuitive to effectively moving to the cloud, but it’s a necessary component to get you there. Otherwise, those applications you can’t move to the cloud will cause you to keep your datacenter and thus delay or reduce the tremendous advantages of moving the rest of your applications to the cloud."

The cloud will demote the CIO in 2017 - by @davidlinthicum
"Second, CIOs are considered obstacles to productivity and are now often left out of the loop. In the past, CIOs had to be in the loop because the departments got their applications and compute resources through IT. However, given the time required to get needed systems up and running, departments have become good at working around the CIOs—typically with the CEO’s and board’s at least tacit blessing. The cloud has enabled this as well."
