Twitter View – Gartner Symposium in Cannes – Tuesday

by Carol Rozwell  |  November 9, 2010  |  1 Comment

Elise Olding, Deb Logan and I continued to monitor the twitter stream at the Gartner Symposium in Cannes (#gartnersym).  According to Tweettronics as of 10 PM today (Cannes time) there were 1073 tweets from 356 users. The wordle describes what is on peoples’ minds.


What’s interesting is how the mention of some topics (such as cloud) is consistently high day-to-day and how new topics (such as innovation) manage to squeeze into the mix. One of the most retweeted items today was the mention of Seven Major Projects CIOs Should Consider During the Next Three Years.

If the tweets are any indication, there are big changes ahead for IT –

@alcattell #GartnerSym Next gen business apps driven by need to utilise vast amounts of unstructured information #PBS

@Blyaert 15 petabytes of new information every day. Will grow to 275 exabytes a day in 2020. #gartnersym

As well as some big changes ahead for the IT organization itself –

@carlhaggerty Critical shift in IT – from monitoring activities to monitoring outcomes #gartnersym #socitm < Key to gauging value

@CIO_Adam leadership skills for CIO’s 2/2 – master communications, inspire others, build people not systems #gartnersym

@eacorg: Genovese – Prediction more than 15% of information management people will not report to CIO in 2013 #gartnersym

Twitter also served some more mundane purposes, such as doubling for lost and found and reporting on cuisine. And at least one attendee found a new way of working in Cannes #gartnersym posted by @Tri4Ever


Thanks for following the action. More tomorrow. You can follow me @CRozwell.
