They have developed a deep bench of talented IT staffers at their organizations and managed to keep their own skills fresh by constantly mastering new technologies and processes. We are privileged to recognize the leadership and achievements of the 2014 Premier 100 honorees.”

IT and business decision-makers find themselves exploring innovative ways to incorporate technology to drive business results.

In China, an Empire Built by Aping Apple

NY Times

EIJING — China is notorious for its knockoffs. But now comes a knockoff of one of the gods of American ingenuity: Steven P. Jobs. In a country where products like iPhones are made but rarely invented, Lei Jun — entrepreneur, billionaire and professed Jobs acolyte — is positioning himself and his company as figurative heirs of Mr. Jobs. The Chinese media have nicknamed his company, Xiaomi, the “Apple of the East.” The title is a stretch, by almost any measure. But Mr. Lei nonetheless is carefully cultivating a Jobsian image here, right down to his jeans and dark shirts. He is also selling millions of mobile phones that look a lot like iPhones. Chinese consumers — and deep-pocketed investors overseas — seem to be believers. And yet Mr. Lei’s biggest believer may be himself. He bounds onto podiums to introduce new cellphones. He proclaims things that may, to many, sound outlandish. For instance: “We’re making the mobile phone like the PC, and this is a totally new idea,” Mr. Lei, Xiaomi’s chief executive, said during an interview at the company’s spacious, high-rise headquarters here. “We’re doing things other companies haven’t done before.” That might come as a surprise to Apple and Samsung Electronics, the twin giants of smartphones. But Xiaomi (pronounced SHAO-mee) did sell $2 billion in handsets in China last year.

PwC: UK’s media economy to reach £65bn but publishers face challenged future

Media Briefing

The UK entertainment and media market will grow from £54 billion to £65.5 billion over the next four years – but news and information publishers are going to see hardly a dime of that increase. PwC’s latest Entertainment and Media report covering 2013-2017 says B2B publishing, newspapers and consumer magazines will see a net fall in revenues over the next four years. PwC’s full figures for 2008 to 2013 do not paint a pretty picture:
