I guess that I have been in this technology industry for too long. Like many of my colleagues, I love new technology and I thrive on change and emerging trends. In fact, the technology market thrives on change and the latest innovation that promises to turn an also ran company into a market disruptor. The reality is that many of these shiny new toys or technology innovations fail – sometimes almost unnoticed and sometimes with a bang. In my business book, Smart or Lucky? How Technology Leaders Turn Chance into Success, I devote an entire chapter on what I call “Silver...

Is Facebook Responsible... for Security?

Posted by on in Security
A few weeks ago I wrote a guest blog on Harvard Business Review’s Online site. The blog which is linked to below basically explains what happened to me when my Facebook account was hacked.  One day after this article appeared I received the following message from “Barry” at Facebook: After reviewing this report, we determined that the profile you are reporting violates our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. As a result, we removed this profile from Facebook. Needless to say, I was relieved that I had my identity back. I still wonder what would have happened had I not had the...

  When I started working on my latest book, Smart or Lucky? How Technology Leaders Turn Chance into Success, I thought a lot about what makes one company sustain itself over decades while other companies fade away.  What does innovation really mean and how does it happen? Innovation is not an easy achievement. Many companies that find themselves in trouble proclaim that they will improve their fortunes by through innovation.  While it makes sense it can be somewhat perplexing.  Shouldn’t companies always be focused on innovation? Isn’t it logical to assume that if a company were consistently innovating that they would...

Can HP survive its DNA?

Posted by on in Cloud Computing
This blog was originally published in Harvard Business Review I remember attending a Hewlett-Packard meeting for industry analysts in the early 1990s and hearing HP proudly declare that it was becoming a software company. Software had turned into a stronger driver of revenue in the computer industry than hardware, and HP management had realized that it had to make the shift to sustain its growth. I raised my hand and asked Lew Platt, HP's president at the time, how much of overall revenue he anticipated would come from software within five years. His answer: by the end of the decade, about...

It is inevitable that data would emerge as the most complex and important topics of the next decade. The expansion of the amount and types of data that we have been accumulating across more systems—physical and virtual, applications, and electronic devices – is astounding.  These environments generate huge amounts of data – from structured to unstructured – and with increasing use of digital images, social media, and data streams this explosion of data is continuing beyond what we could have imagined. Many organizations have created workarounds to manage these large volumes of complex data using warehouses, data marts, and moving...

The following is a guest blog that I wrote for the Harvard Business Review. I joined LinkedIn in 2007. I can't remember why. After connecting to a few dozen people, I still couldn't fathom what the purpose of LinkedIn was, especially for an already-established professional. Yes, I knew these people, but to what end were we connecting on this site? But for some reason I stayed on for the ride, more as an experiment than in any effort to gain value. I was fascinated with the platform this company was building and wondered what its business model might be. Even after...
