For those playing catch-up, here’s what we produced on SearchCIO.com last week:
- E-waste: A blight on the environment and a company’s good name — The e-trash keeps piling up. Need a visual? Think “Wall-E.” What isn’t stockpiled is being dumped into landfills and the toxic parts shipped off to countries where laws are lax. CIOs are taking steps to keep their companies’ hands clean.
- IT services spending nicked, but not axed — A second-quarter report from Forrester Research shows that more than 40% of IT executives have already cut overall budgets this year and 24% have cut discretionary spending.
- IT asset management focus drives Toyota Motorsport — With a more focused asset management process, Toyota Motorsport trimmed system redundancy, saving $450,000 a year.
- BPM gets kicked up a notch with business event processing — Ready for some football analogies? CIO Tom Brady showed up in Boston this week, the day after the other Tom Brady was pronounced disabled on arrival — and showed why technology is a game changer.
