Wearable technology another way CIOs can help drive the business

If possible, we’re both over thinking and under thinking this whole wearable technology thing. Especially when it comes to the role CIOs are playing, and will play, in the trend. We’re over thinking, it seems, the troubles these devices will bring upon IT organizations in the form of another BYOD invasion. No one is suggesting that security vis-a-vis wearables isn’t important — it surely is — but the hand wringing is leaving less time to think about all the good wearable technology can do for a company. And it’s not just in the form of (yawn) more data collection.

As illustrated in this week’s lead Searchlight item (and really, there was definitely more than one of its kind to choose from), wearable technology offers tremendous opportunity to enhance the work being done inside your company. It’s definitely worth thinking about — and acting on.

Also this week: Facebook buys some new friends with $19 billion WhatsApp purchase, Google launches yet another mapping initiative, and more.
