Is the US goverment hiring too many IT Pros?

Is the US goverment hiring too many IT Pros?

The current administration plans to hire 6,500 people with cybersecurity skills before the new admininstration is place. It had hired 3,000 by the first half of this year.

Both HR and IT have a critical role in addressing the expectations that the Executive Management has of HR and the CIO. You need integrated processes with an application/infrastructure backbone to support them. While the CIO may have a systems focus with a lack of sympathy for HR needs, his/her demands actually will enable HR to gain better process focus.

KPIs are more granular and focus management’s attention to a finite array of statistics that are indicative of a company’s performance They are believed to have explanatory power over the company’s desired success and profitability.

Younger workers are at more risk to taken in by scams

Scams score more with younger workers according to study funded by Microsoft

Younger individuals are most easily duped by technical support scams according to a recent survey.

  • Individuals between 25 and 34 were more than three times as likely to fall for the fake-out as those aged 55 to 64.
  • Individuals between 18 and 24 -- were little better than their slightly-older cohort; they were tricked by the scams more than two and a half times the rate of the group aged 66 and older.
  • Globally, about two-thirds of the respondents had encountered a technical support scam.
  • 20% -- allowed the scammer to continue his or her story -- and nearly one in 10 had actually given money to the fraudster

The survey paid for by Microsoft, queried 1,000 adults ages 18 and up in each of several countries, including the U.S., the U.K., Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Germany and India.

Enterprise operations control strategic IT spending

Enterprise operations control strategic IT spending

IT Strategic spendingIn many enterprises new technology investment is funded out of line of business and when it's about to go live and become an operational cost, it switches over to an IT budget."

The relationship between enterprise operations and the IT department when it came to priorities and strategic spending is less like 'us' versus 'them' and more like 'contentious siblings'.

Fundamentally, the role of the CIO when deciding on IT spending is both to advise business leaders on viable technologies for realizing a project's goals, but to also explain how any new investments would fit with a firm's existing infrastructure.

What do the states' unemployment numbers tell us?

What do the states' unemployment numbers tell us?

The state unemployment numbers cannot really tell us about the state of the overall job market.  First the numbers are "constantly" being adjusted by individuals that have an agenda that is not in all cases pure.  For example in July 2016, the data that was reported said that unemployment rates were significantly higher in 7 states, lower in 3 states, and stable in 40 states and the District of Columbia. Nonfarm payroll employment increased in 15 states, decreased in Kansas, and was essentially unchanged in 34 states and the District. 

No where in that presentation is the fact the overall labor force participation is a 62.8% (saying that 94 plus million individuals are permanently out of the labor force). That would make overall unemployment number well over 12%.

High unemployment states July 2016

The only fact that is clear from the data is the Nevada has been a high unemployment state for over 8 years.

4th Industrial Revolution

4th Industrial RevolutionCIOs have been inundated with the potential and the rapid pace of innovation in technology. This is referred to as the 4th Industrial Revolution, and it can be more accurately described as the ‘Hurricane of Innovation’. Janco terms this as the ‘Age of the Customer’ and the imperative for customer obsession to be successful . Never before have we seen this level of innovation intensity. Almost every company is experimenting with the potential, and sometimes it is about finding the diamonds in the ‘data’. Data is now the next platform which provides insight, intelligence, and ability to create new platforms for a company and industry. Connecting data with IoT, and in many cases machine learning is proving to be a winning formula. The business value and realization of digitization is in progress, and now we have real world examples of new business models and potential revenues for traditional companies. Digital disruption is here and it is real.
