Cognitive analytics offers a way to bridge the gap between big data and the reality of practical decision making.


Industrialised crowdsourcing

Today, technology makes crowdsourcing possible on an industrial scale, with potentially disruptive impacts on both cost and innovation.


Digital engagement

With more and more parts of the business becoming digital, the CIO has an opportunity to build a new legacy for IT.



Wearables hold possibilities for driving down costs and increasing competitiveness. What could it mean for your organisation?


Technical debt reversal

Understanding, containing, and mitigating technical debt can be a platform for a renewed level of trust and transparency with the business.


Social activation

The power of social activation is unleashed when others advocate an organisation’s message in their own words to their network.


Cloud orchestration

CIOs should be making deliberate investments in developing advanced integration and data management capabilities to support cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-core models.


In-memory revolution

The sweet spot for in-memory technologies is where massive amounts of data, complex operations, and business challenges demanding real-time support collide.
