Are IT Leaders Also Social Media Leaders?

“Why can’t we offer our app on the iPhone?” is a question heard more and more in the executive suite.  It’s a great example of consumer demand (or at least perceived demand) for information technology outpacing the capabilities of our enterprises.  I wonder if we are seeing the same thing in social media or if […] MORE

Top 5 CIO Tweets of the Week – August 14, 2009

This week’s #CIO tweets were overshadowed by John C. Dvorak’s assertion that our nation’s CIO, Vivek Kundra, is a fraud – at least his resume might be.

“None” is Not a Social Media Strategy

Saying “No” to social media is a big mistake, especially if the decision was driven by the CIO.  Over the last few weeks, I have spoken to two CIOs, one in financial services and one in the public sector, who say their organizations have a “no social media” policy.
