In Blog, Consumerisation, Technology on June 21, 2012 at 6:49 am

Yesterday was spent at the Enterprise Everywhere event hosted by the Corporate IT Forum at the Millbank Tower.

A range of consumerisation challenges were covered by esteemed speakers and guests. This included, but was not limited to, security, support, standards, management and of course just simply Apple!

Although it highlighted nothing new for me, it re-enforced my view that the device does not matter.

The trend of what device to have is now driven by the consumer world and not by what us IT decision makers would like people to own. Therefore our planning for the future has to be around the applications and how we secure them at the application level.

Do you have a view on this? Will IT decision makers be back in control soon? Should they have the power?

In yesterday’s blog, I mentioned the new Surface device from Microsoft.
This prompted Dave Timoney, one of my regular blog viewers (and ex director) to reminisce over an original Surface product that Microsoft released in 2007, which is covered in this link.

As he stated, this was indeed similar to the original Space Invader tables that were in the pubs back in the day when I was young enough to enjoy them.

Some examples on Ebay here provided by a colleague, Rob Baillie, another blog viewer and contributor, but this picture should take some of you down memory lane!

After the recent security breach at LinkedIn, they have now been hit with a lawsuit. The report in CIO stated that the company failed to implement industry standard security measures. LinkedIn intend to fight this, as they called the suit “without merit”. 6.5 million customers might disagree with this!

Conservative MP Louise Mensch has launched a rival to Twitter! Ms Mensch is herself a prolific Twitter user and has created her own site called Menshn. The full report from the BBC is here. Personally I think she should stick to politics. Hmm. Maybe not, as not a good track record so far!
