Enterprise IT: Obsolete or Innovative?

2013-07-01 :: noreply@blogger.com (Rich Levin)



When it comes to innovation, IT is often its own worst enemy. That's according to John Michelsen, CTO of CA Technologies. In today's podcast, Michelsen provides advice that can help IT get out of its own way and take innovation from ideas to reality.

IT needs to shift from an operations-only mode to an innovation engine. But how much risk is acceptable, and how do they power such a transformation? The answers are in this edition of Talking Innovation.

2013-07-01 :: noreply@blogger.com (Rich Levin)

Still, the promise of secure innovation is attainable if IT security executives establish a trust framework -- an agile, flexible environment through which innovation can thrive while critical assets remain secure.
