Transforming Information Technology
Every day in IT, we have the opportunity to transform traditional thinking and expectations about how IT delivers value that fuels business innovation, partnership, velocity, as well as productivity.
I encourage the people in my organization to be ‘bold’ in their thinking and ideas. And when they step up and act bold, they often delight me and our Intel business partners. Recently a small team took a bold idea and reimagined how we deliver information to our peers and the industry. Historically, we have provided the Intel IT Annual Performance Report, a comprehensive report of data and proof points on IT value, provided on an annual, year-in-review perspective. This team asked, “What would happen if we took a new approach to communicating with our IT industry peers? Could we connect with them more often through social channels and share our best practices as we go instead of the end of the year? Could we build in social sharing and engage with them on their favorite devices?”
The results of their effort—our new Intel IT Business Review mobile app (for smart phones) and a digital magazine (for tablets). Going forward, the Intel IT team will engage with you at key points along our journey, sharing insights and best practices and connect you regularly with our IT experts, customers and fellow travelers.
While you can still find the same rich content among the pages of Intel.com, this new application allows you the freedom to gain insight on IT best practices from anywhere, at anytime, on any device. We hope you will connect with us!

Blazing Trails for IT Through Innovation
“Whether it’s exploratory or targeted, we have a process for identifying, prioritizing, and pursuing the opportunities that hold promise. It all boils down to use cases and business value, continually seeking new answers to an enduring question: how do we make things better, faster, and/or cheaper?” Ed Goldman, Intel IT CTO and general manager of the Intel IT Strategy, Architecture and Innovation group
Where Failure is an Option
Failure is an uncomfortable topic. Nobody wants to admit their setbacks, let alone call attention to them. For Intel IT Labs, however, failure is an acknowledged and expected aspect of the job and a necessary ingredient of the innovation process.
Designing for the Unknown
How can applications be developed so they work on any platform, any operating system, any device—even ones that have yet to be conceived? Intel IT is creating a new app development paradigm to withstand the test of time, working towards a reality where multi-platform apps will be easily adapted for current platforms as well as the next set of innovations, whether it’s an entirely new operating system, consumer device, or user interface.
The Next Big (Data)Thing
As far as Intel IT leaders are concerned, analyzing massive quantities of data is not the endgame. It’s just the beginning. Intel IT’s Deep Insights research is exploring how to take big data to the next level, adding elements of crowdsourcing, data visualization, and machine learning to deliver greater insights, more accurate predictions, and untold value.
Intel Dynamic UX: Personalization for the Enterprise
Imagine a computing platform that understands you, helps you do what you want to do exactly when you want to do it. Intel IT researchers believe Intel Dynamic UX will one day reshape people’s computing experiences at work, benefiting them and the IT teams and industries providing support.
