Renault-Nissan's CIO-plus drives advances in the Internet Of Things
Forbes
Celso Guiotoko's background is quite diverse. He is half Brazilian and half Japanese. Having a foot in multiple cultures has served him well, especially in his current role as the alliance global vice president, corporate vice president, and chief information officer of Global Corporate IS/IT for Renault-Nissan. Guiotoko must balance a number of responsibilities, but he also has to juggle a diverse travel schedule. One of the keys to making this work is to have a solid team in place in each geography and in each area of responsibility.

5 data recovery plan considerations
CIO
As an individual, you know you're living in a digital age when you're more concerned about crashing your computer than crashing your car. For businesses, it's no different: data sets are the crown jewels of any enterprise and that means a huge emphasis on data recovery plans.

The New York Times CIO uses niche apps to crack the digital media code
TechTarget
Last year, in the midst of an editorial leadership shakeup, a report on innovation at The New York Times Co. was leaked to the public. Coming in at 97 pages, it was a brutally honest look at where the media company was succeeding on digital — and where it wasn't. "We have always cared about the reach and impact of our work, but we haven't done enough to crack that code in the digital era," the authors — a mix of reporters, editors, designers and strategy managers — wrote. "The urgency is only growing because digital media is getting more crowded, better funded and far more innovative."

The IT interview questions you should be asking
CIO
An interview by you as a senior IT person — meaning a CIO or vice president of technology, not as an architect or a senior developer — is different. It is a safe bet that the candidate knows more about the day-to-day part of his/her job than you do. Any attempts by you to be tricky with specific technology questions in the vein of "How do you do degauss a toaster?" or "Have you considered the ramifications of using a self-replicating frabberjab?" are unlikely to tell you anything other than that your staff did a great job of bringing you a smart person. There is a place for pure technical interviews, but this is not it.

People join good companies but quit bad managers
By Greg L. Alston
I'm constantly amazed by how people who are charged with managing people try to make life much more complex and difficult than it needs to be. When people join a new company, they are usually excited by the new opportunities and believe in the vision of the organization. They choose the job based on the best fit with their world view. While the compensation plan is certainly one component of why people choose to work for you, it is rarely an element that determines whether they remain working for you.
