What the Consumerization of IT Means to Modern Businesses

Barb Darrow
Senior Director of Communications, Oracle

Business software is very complicated and supremely important. If your inventory and manufacturing software doesn’t work, there are significant real-world consequences. Technology vendors and their customers traditionally emphasized function over form, but today's employees expect applications not only to work flawlessly but also to look good.

On the latest episode of the Stories from the Cloud podcast, Michael Krigsman, industry analyst and host of the popular CXOTalk podcast, chats about a range of topics, including how the roles of CXOs are changing and the effect of personal devices and applications on how businesses operate.

Tune in to hear Krigsman discuss the following with cohosts Barbara Darrow and  Michael Hickins:

  • The strong influence that consumer tech continues to have on enterprise software design and deployment. Making business applications easy to use (and look at) makes people productive and helps companies recruit and retain the best talent.
  • The hype around artificial intelligence (AI) means that many things that are labeled AI aren't AI at all. AI is most powerful when it's applied to mundane tasks that most people don’t want to do in the first place.
