App Think Tank: Key application policies at Intel and American Cancer Society

This week’s theme is applications and software strategy and yesterday’s post dealt with the value of  going “open source”all the way” from start-ups to large enterprises.  Today we’re taking a look at the major guidelines that two large organizations have put in place for all applications being developed.

Take a listen to Das Kamhout,  IT Principal Engineer at Intel and Jay Ferro the CIO of the American Cancer Society as they talk about what their organizations are  requiring.  (This video was taken from the  Application think tank that Dell Services held back in January.)

Consumerization has raised the bar and set new standards for what employees and customers expect from applications both internal and external.   In a nutshell they need to be intuitive and available everywhere.  Intel and the American Cancer Society understand this and I would agree :)

Stay tuned

Starting tomorrow, the next three entries this week will center around dealing with the applications that already exist within your organization and how you modify them or know which ones to get rid of.
