Enterprise Mobility + Security


Today I go for a ride with Dan Morales, the CIO of eBay.

We had a great chat, but I did start things off with a bit of a curveball:  As a guy with a really common name, I try to get to the bottom of which of the 3,073 Dan Morales’ on LinkedIn Dan really is.  It turns out he is not the guy preparing tax returns for celebrity pets – but he did race Michael Johnson and Carl Lewis in college.

Dan has some great advice about the qualities he looks for when he promotes IT managers to leadership roles, and he also talks about the steps his organization took to simultaneously go mobile and boost productivity.  His vision is to make his workforce equally productive no matter what device is being using – laptop, tablet, or phone.

Next week, I wrap up this discussion with Dan by talking about the pros/cons of failing in a way that actually means you were successful (but is also still kind of failing).  It makes sense in context, I promise.
