Posted by: Karen Goulart
CIO

Another International CES show, another year of bloggers complaining how very passe it is. Well, maybe it's a slog to actually be there, but what filtered out through various media seemed, if not super exciting, at least pretty important. Sigh, another year with a bunch of wearable technology. Yes,...

Posted by: Karen Goulart
CIO

If you do something more than once and do it at the same time of year, it's reasonable to consider it an "annual event." Therefore, welcome to the annual Searchlight List of Lists! It's my business to write for and about CIOs, so I know you haven't got time to sift through all those year-end...

Posted by: Karen Goulart
CIO

We've all said silly things. We don't all get haunted by them on the Internet on a regular basis. Back in 1995, writer and astronomer Cliff Stoll shared his thoughts on the future of the World Wide Web with Newsweek. In short, he suspected it didn't really have one. Ironically, that...

Are you ready to go omnichannel?



Posted by: Karen Goulart
CIO

They say you can't be all things to all people, or in a million places at once. Well, "they" are going to fail at business as the age of the customer continues to entwine with the digital age.

Posted by: Karen Goulart
CIO

Pretty much nobody thought stack ranking was a good idea at Microsoft.

Twitter IPO success a turning point for social networks?



Posted by: Karen Goulart
CIO

When news first broke about the pending Twitter IPO, it was widely speculated whether it would mirror Facebook's fumbled launch. After all, both are social networks, both are of questionable revenue generation, relying as they do on digital advertising. But Twitter is not Facebook -- in more ways...
