What's your boldest prediction for IT in the next five years?
The average person will wear five connected devices -- not including his or her mobile phone -- in five years.
How do you find time to innovate?
I try to spend at least five hours each month with smaller or startup organizations. It's important for me to understand both consumer and business-focused organizations. Through these conversations, I actively seek out opportunities to innovate with these organizations. I also try to meet with each IT employee every two to three years. In these meetings, I am looking for ideas to innovate and transform the organization.
