Top 10 Things on Every CIO’s 2016 wish list

List: Christmas is a time for miracles!

By Sam

1) An end to vendors shouting about UBERISATION

2) Having a calm debate about cyber security

3) A CEO who would listen and stop talking about his teenage daughter’s smartphone

4) A CFO who could grasp that an appropriate IT investment level isn’t just replacing stuff that’s broken

5) A software contract with less opacity than crude oil

6) Users who would recognise and stop opening inappropriate emails

7) An end to talk about keeping the lights on – more about appropriate lighting

8) A cloud company not populated by salesmen from a traditional IT company

9) A cloud contract where the supplier accepts that one day you might want your data back

10) A blank page on which to design an IT architecture encompassing energy, physical data centre assets, core to edge networking, telecoms, server and storage hardware and software, operating systems, systems management software, databases, middleware, virtualisation, SAAS, applications, security, big data, the internet of things, mobility, cloud and google.

(Like we said, it is a wish list)
