There are many factors to consider when undergoing a digital transformation: Having a platform to support that transformation is one of them. Senior news writer Nicole Laskowski sat down with MIT’s Jeanne Ross to discuss why building a technology platform is becoming key to digital transformation and disruption.

After glowing reviews last week, Windows 10 is garnering criticism this week for its ominous-sounding privacy policy and data collection systems. Are these concerns overblown, or should users — and CIOs — be concerned? In the latest Searchlight column, site editor Fran Sales broke through the noise to get feedback from analysts and CIOs. Also in Searchlight: Yahoo visitors are attacked through Flash bug, and a favorite Canadian hitchhiking robot is beheaded on its U.S. journey.

What is the CIO’s role in regulating cloud computing? The latest issue of our CIO Decisions e-zine explores why taking inventory of cloud app usage is more important than taking back control. Also in this issue, we take a look at how Hardee’s uses an algorithm to sell more food, how big-name companies use partnerships to drive digital projects and how private equity deals offer midmarket CIOs a profitable new career path.

Miss anything from this year’s MIT Sloan CIO Symposium? Don’t worry — we’ve rounded up all of SearchCIO’s coverage from the conference in one essential guide, including panel recaps, video interviews and thoughtful discussions on this year’s theme of digital disruption.

On the IT Compliance Advisor blog, Sales runs down the latest GRC news, including the U.S. Justice Department’s hiring of a compliance counsel to examine corruption charges and the details of Mead Johnson’s $12 million bribery settlement.
