Nutanix CEO: The word cloud has been bastardised

Yogesh Gupta | Nov. 9, 2016
Cloud, mobile and IoT have become frothy terms, creating a bubble-like environment mainly for wannabe tech companies, says Dheeraj Pandey, Co-founder and CEO of Nutanix.

Technology is the 'What' component and the IT project implemented has a Why component.  Lot of CFOS allow CIOs to spend money, but how do you talk about accountability and shared risks? Implementing shared risks is tough as the tech vendor doesn’t have the same kind of skin in the game. There’s not profit sharing between two different organizations – tech OEM and the end customer, he said.

"CIOs should be the orchestrators of the hybrid cloud world to precisely know what should be owned and why something should be rented. They have to be that glue to add relevance to their company’s IT infra and overall business."

The callous new age definition of CIO as 'Career is Over' is not true as he said, "CIOs have to constantly evolve to be CEOs of their own careers. CIOs should be the orchestrators of the hybrid cloud world to precisely know what should be owned and why something should be rented. They have to be that glue to add relevance to their company’s IT infra and overall business."

Your advice for CIOs and IT managers in the cloud era or hyper converged infra journey? "Take small steps and don’t scoff at revolutionary things. It you are not paranoid about your job then your job will gone and your IT team is relevant. Developers, LOBs and departments will bypass you," signed off Pandey.
