What does the Dell-EMC deal, the largest technology acquisition ever, mean for IT? We asked CIOs and IT pros to weigh in on the deal and its impact on digital strategies, vendor relationships and the future of IT.

Speaking of the Dell-EMC deal, in this week’s Searchlight, features writer Jason Sparapani finds out how the deal highlights the changing role of the CIO. Also in Searchlight: Twitter layoffs and the Intel Skylake chip.

Failing isn’t necessarily bad, but failing fast is harder than it seems. At last week’s Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, Pixar’s president described the double meaning of failure and the difficulty of building a “fail fast” culture.

In a Q&A on SearchCOmpliance, ISSA International Conference organizers discuss how InfoSec professionals have to change in order to effectively promote a security culture at their organizations.
