CIO, 4000 Employees, Construction Industry
Thanks Bill. This is an awesome list!! My contributions to the community are as follows:
- Talend: This is a drag and drop (like ETL) tool that can connect to OnPrem or Cloud solutions very similar to Dell Boomi (which charges by the connector and data flows) but Talend has a yearly cost of $25k.
- ThoughtSpot: This is a self-service Google-like data visualization tool. Our team helps setup a schema, relationships and creates a keyword dictionary then trains the business how to use their own data and share their“pin boards”.
- Glip: This is a social collaboration tool that comes with Ring Central, similar to MS-Teams/Slack/GroupMe/Chatter except it is integrated into the total UC platform. From a Glip Group you can launch an immediate video conference with the entire team and they all get a single click “alert” on their iPhone, Android, or Windows PC. This is similar to a document share you don’t have to bounce out to WebEx and create a meeting.
Before each of my CIO Innovation Forum events, I find that it’s really important to take time and reach out to CIOs who have registered and ask them one important question – “What are you looking to gain from attending and what would be a huge win for you?” I tend to get all sorts of answers – varying slightly depending on the event’s agenda. Regardless, one answer clearly dominates – and that is, “I want to hear what my CIO Peers are doing in their organizations (i.e. best tools, practices, what works well/what doesn’t, etc.).
My team and I just wrapped up a series of Master Mind lunches in the MD, DC, and Raleigh, NC regions. I decided to ask the CIOs who attended to prepare and share the Top 3 best tools and/or systems they are currently using today that promote efficiency in their organizations.
Check out their responses in the document below. If you would like to be a part of these collaborative and informative conversations, reach out to my team to learn more about our upcoming CIO Innovation Forum events: firstname.lastname@example.org.
