5 Things CIOs should be Thankful for This Thanksgiving

CIOs have a number of things from a technology standpoint to be thankful about. You have been reading about these technologies all year here and here.

These help you reduce costs, improve business processes, and boost your efficiency and the efficiency of your organization:

  1. Virtualization—increases the utilization and flexibility of IT resources
  2. Cloud computing—enables you to efficiently consume and deliver business capabilities as services
  3. Mobile devices (smartphones, tablets)—un-tethers you from the constraints of the office, location, and time
  4. Social business—enables new ways to get close to your customers and turn them into evangelists for your business
  5. Moore’s Law—ensures that the cost of IT capabilities continues to steadily drop on a per-unit-of-work basis as it has for decades.

Are all of these unqualified, 100% gains with no downsides? Probably not (with the exception of Moore’s Law), but no organization that has benefited from any of wants to go back.  Happy Thanksgiving.
