When Google announced its free “Gmail” service on April 1, 2004, many initially thought it was to be a cute April Fool’s joke. Over six years and more than a dozen free or nearly free applications later, Google apps and other cloud-based options have moved from nice consumer toys to serious enterprise tools. For many CIOs, the question has changed from “Can cloud-based applications like this be taken seriously?” to “Will I be taken seriously if I don’t strongly consider Google Apps for my organization?” Join us for a discussion of IT leaders who swear by them, swear at them, and ponder the future of Google apps and other cloud applications in the enterprise.

Panelists included: Matt Hallock, Expedient; Stephen Hujarski, ASW Global; Michael Kimmel, Cleveland Institute of Art

But with the introduction of the iPhone in 2007 and more recently with the iPad, various “iDevices” began to have a serious impact on IT operations. Initially a nuisance, more recently intriguing collection of potential business tools, savvy CIOs and their staffs are learning how to survive and prosper when integrating “consumer” electronic devices. Learn from CIOs who have had some hits and some misses while they speculated on pitches yet to come.
