It was great to connect with a large group of IT leaders earlier this week at a resort in Muskoka (the picture above is just outside the area where we ate), where we talked about the impact of big data. Among my guests were Fariba Anderson, who we’ve profiled on this site before during her roles with OLG and MPAC. She was great in our panel discussion.

This was a share of a story I wrote, but it’s interesting to see how others react to what was said:
TD Bank CIO predicts Apple Pay is “at least a year away” from coming to Canada. http://t.co/tpDoNHMrZm He is also incredibly dismissive…

I missed this one, but it sounds like it was great. SIM is a fantastic organization.
Attended a CIO forum event in Toronto hosted by SIM chapter. Great presentations on the future of CIO role and relationship with bus.

Career opportunity (at least via social media) of the week:

And finally, I thought this was a good reminder. With all the talk about CIOs needing to work better with CMOs, you hardly ever hear anyone mention human resources, even though employee engagement is core to anything an organization does, including IT projects:
Invest in your processes and systems but do not forget HR. Enable people to grow and your business will grow! #CIO #LEADERSHIP
