I believe that information is becoming the single most precious asset in the world today.
And I believe that IT is poised to play an entirely new role as the "CFO of Information".
Part of that journey is becoming expert in the overlaps (and synergies) between IT thinking and other disciplines.
We've all had to get good at things like finance, logistics, project management, (ahem) internal marketing, business process reengineering, human resources and other decidedly non-technical disciplines.
I think it's inevitable that we'll have to add "legal" to this expanding portfolio.
More and more IT strategy in the future will be directly connected to legal implications of what we do with information.
And today, it gives me great pleasure to welcome Andy Cohen to the EMC blogosphere. Andy's blog will focus on this important intersection between legal and IT.
Andy joins myself and Mark Lewis (EMC's CDO -- chief development officer) as part of the growing roster of EMC corporate bloggers.
Welcome, Andy! Looking forward to seeing great posts on a variety of issues.
