George Watt, VP of Strategy for the Cloud Computing organization at CA Technologies, discusses the consumer driven IT (CDIT) megatrend. This goes beyond consumerization where employees bring their own devices to work, aka BYOD or bring your own device, to encompass the entire ecosystem of employees, management, partners, vendors, government institutions as well as your customers. He covers topics such as who’s using it, and what’s driving it, and the business case that can be made for using Consumer Driven IT. George also speaks about how consumerization of IT is being led by social media and mobile platforms and is being enabled by cloud computing. Watts then focuses on the adoption rate of consumer technologies and dives into some of the barriers facing some CIOs such as security and compliance issues, end to end user experience, and the ability to support multiple mobile devices. He then follows up with solutions to overcome these barriers. The conversation then turns to evolutionary vs. revolutionary adoption and how to move forward with each approach. He ends the interview by discussing the benefits of adopting the consumerization of IT such as increased customer loyalty, core business market share growth, and reduced expenses. community.ca.com/blogs/
