No surprise, but still interesting to see is that the Top 10 tags on show Mobile banking and payments on top. It is a trend that is absolutely real and with an extensive fragmentation when it comes to best practices. Standards are not yet in place and SEPA is struggling to define a framework for payments, while card and payment providers battle each other and banks are partnering with service providers to find other options. Some time ago IDC predicted that only 10% of payments will go through the banks in the future, which is indeed disputed by the banks themselves. So who will come out strongest? Will it be diversified local alternatives rather than global streamlined services?

The annual Hannover based fair CeBit attracts over 300,000 visitors with every self-respecting IT vendor taking aim. The event appeals to an unusual mix of audience with students and families visiting the fair in an attempt to collect as many bags, gadgets and well, 'free' food, while on the complete opposite side of the spectrum some very serious business is being done by the hundreds if not thousands of IT companies represented at the event.

With the focus across the event dominated by Cloud and Mobile technologies, it wasn't surprising to see much of the content around the fair focused emphasizing trust in these emerging trends. Many of the executives and IT professionals I spoke with indicated that they are in early phases of implementing projects such as BYOD however, time is running out as the need to address the digital native coming to the workplace is now!

Both public health and public utilities around the world take a starring role in the table of contents of the January 2012 CIO Digest, Symantec’s quarterly magazine for IT decision makers. Looking first at healthcare, this issue includes articles about IT leaders at New Jersey’s Barnabas Heath and Italy’s National Cancer institute on how they are both responding to rapid changes in public and government expectations of IT delivery value and wielding information to advance their institutions’ missions.
On the public utilities side, technology officers at Missouri’s LaClede Gas and Thailand’s AIS wireless server provider talk about the importance of advanced IT in keeping the lights on in the Midwest, and its importance in keeping wireless phone subscribers loyal even while they demand constant novelty and change in the services they consume.
The issue also...

Monday we had the wonderful experience of being human: We made a mistake.

In our press release highlighting a recent Netcraft report, we stated that Symantec has a 40 percent market share of the EV SSL market. However, we actually have 65 percent market share.

We’ve corrected the mistake in our release on our website, and are happy to note that we had under reported our market share, which is much less embarrassing than if we over reported.

You can view the updated release here:

The January Netcraft report follows a year riddled with high-profile attacks and targeting of Certificate Authorities—attacks that highlight the need for a strong, reliable, and responsible Certificate Authority community. The increasing popularity of SSL certificates and EV SSL certificates, as reflected in...

Data Explosion * Risk and Compliance * Cloud * Mobility * Making it all work together

These topics are all front of mind in our increasingly complex IT landscape. Symantec offers the solutions to protect your most valuable asset. Your data and your patients’ data.

Evolving infrastructure, increasing complexity, and the challenging threat landscape are forcing Health IT to evolve from a systems-centric to an information-centric model of service delivery. Hospitals are under massive pressure to protect their information, all the while needing to increase the scope of infrastructure their employees can use to access this data. With this shift, providers will be managing information and applications, across ever changing environments such as virtual, mobile devices and cloud-based applications - - all under increasing regulatory control, enforcement, and penalties.

Arriving again on New York Ave. 1100 NW to be exact.  I love this city.  In Washington old man winter has arrived. 

The topic of the day is Cybersecurity legislation and privacy.  This is a touchy subject for all because it is a very delicate balance of our constitutional rights as US citizens and the very freedom our troops fight for on the battlefields to ensure the security and livelihood of the land of the free.

Those of us who have been without power for more than 3 days or had the Verizon recording repeating “all circuits are busy” when you are trying to communicate with someone you love in a crisis or sitting in the HOV lanes dead stop and all lanes are blocked.  The feeling of no control is a constant reminder of how fortunate we are…everyday. 

Many generations have physically fought for...

About a month ago, on my personal blog, I posted about a FedEx day idea and our attempt to organise it here at When all emotions went down I was dog tired but happy. We did it and what a great success! I hope my reflections will help you to organise a FedEx day in your company.

Three Weeks Before

I've been thinking about organising a FedEx day since I've read Drive by Daniel H. Pink. It took me couple of months to convince management that they can afford letting bunch of developers to abandon projects for a day and a half. Finally when I got an uncertain consent I could start planning.

The first FedEx was scheduled on 1st December and I had just about three weeks to make it happen...

The CHIME Fall CIO Forums combine the best speakers and healthcare IT educators in the nation with unparalleled opportunities for CIOs and healthcare IT executives to network with their peers and collectively share solutions, solve problems and address challenges.

Symantec sponsored the Friday Morning Keynote speaker at this year's CHIME Fall Forum in San Antonio October 25 - 28, Craig Schiefelbein.

 Craig Schiefelbein is the co-founder and CEO of Paragon Development Systems (PDS) and author of the book Get Out of IT While You Can.  In the book, Craig encourages IT leaders and professionals to think about how they can foster a culture of innovation within their organizations by seeing themselves as part of the larger picture rather than simply “in IT". 

 Thinking and leading in this way, he advises, can completely transform individual careers while also sparking dramatic improvements in the work environment...
