With wheels up and the neon lights of Las Vegas behind me, I reflected on two days spent with nearly 80 global CIOs at EMC’s fourth annual CIO Summit.  Whether in our panel discussions, collaborative breakout sessions, or during the networking breaks, we tackled a variety of timely topics for CIOs.

While Las Vegas is known for its bright lights, vibrant atmosphere and clattering casinosounds, I was most enamored and impressed with the energy and enthusiasm at my very first EMC World conference.

I spent my first 120 days with the company drinking from the proverbial fire hose – getting to know the company’s employees, business units and products and services.  However, I was equally inspired by the unvarnished conversations I had with the more than 70 CIOs attending EMC’s CIO Summit at EMC World.

As a former EMC outsider and host of the Summit, I understand and empathize with the challenges and opportunities facing CIOs today.  After all, I have walked a mile (or two) in their shoes as a CIO over the last 20 years.  Sure, there was excitement around the latest product news during the conference, but a lot of our conversations revolved around how we, as CIOs, should approach the 3rd platform, defined by IDC as the next-generation compute platform comprised of mobile, cloud, big data and social media.

While a little worn and a little hoarse from yet another action-packed EMC World, I can’t help but reflect on my numerous engaging and enlightening conversations with EMC customers.  For instance, EMC’s second annual CIO Summit encouraged the nearly 70 attending CIOs from various industries and geographies to share their opinions, concerns and best practices in their own transformation.

As a CIO Summit co-sponsor, I had a unique vantage point and would like to share a few of the key comments and questions that were raised during this day-long event.
