Technology leaders have too many choices these days. They have so many options that they can get distracted from the most basic imperative of effective and efficient delivery of technology services. New technology is being presented at a faster rate; cognitive computing, artificial intelligence, bots, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud, blockchain technology, and data lakes just to name a few.
A steady trend that is becoming apparent to me in the public sector is the growing distraction by the latest fad or buzz word, going in several directions at once, often not implementing anything or at least not implementing it well, and compounding the issue by not putting the appropriate support in place once the technology is finally implemented. Shiny new objects cause confusion, and fads should not be confused with the daily business value that is: providing support for the mission critical technology already in place.
