Why CIOs need to think like venture capitalists

If you had the opportunity to be the next Uber would you take it?

An innovative technology could mean a company’s big break or, as in the case of Uber, disrupt an entire industry.

Nowadays, businesses have to adopt and adapt to new technologies that might give them a competitive edge — and CIOs are in the position to help. But how do you know which new technology will pay off for the business and which will peter out — or worse, inflict damage.

One way for CIOs to get in the technology innovation/disruption game, according to a new report out by Deloitte, is to start thinking like a venture capitalist. As Associate Site Editor Fran Sales reports in this week’s Searchlight column, venture capitalists accept that some investments will be successful and others will fail — and hedge their bets accordingly. Of course, that’s a tall order for CIOs whose job, after all, is to ensure the reliability of IT operations.

Hello, I am not arguing here but it would be good you identify wich database version you are talking abouth because you CAN see the data file where you are havin IO waits in 10gR2 or just simple the IO that they generate.

You can use DBA_HIST_FILESTATXS or v$filestats view to query the datafiles IO. There are many scripts in the net where you can see specifics examples. i.e. search for: db_tbsp_io_10g.sql or use OEM report to see the tablespace and datafiles statistics. In this blogs "SearchOracle" is a good article about it.

Note: you have to be licensed in order to use AWR views; DBA_HIST_FILESTATXS view is one of them.

Thanks
