Ajay Budhraja interview excerpts
What should be the focus on moving to emerging technologies?
Ajay Budhraja: The focus should be on developing an Enterprise Strategy for emerging Technologies and Cloud, Big Data, Mobility etc., leading such programs is like driving a racing car, you have to be agile and stay on course. Many organizations procure such services and deploy them piecemeal resulting in rework and re-engineering that has to be done later.
I have worked on large programs for emerging technologies such as Cloud, Big Data, Mobility and the key is to determine and document the value of these technologies to the organization and also align the Information Technology strategy with the Business Strategy. Internal capabilities, external drivers, governance, organization structure and the overall approach needs to be defined and this then leads into planning for initiatives, resources and schedules.
What are the impacts of Open Data?
Ajay Budhraja: Open Data drives innovation and encourages the the development of new products. This data should be made available in a standard manner so that developers can utilize it effectively. Open Data strategy should define the specific requirements of what data will be made available and opening it up effectively to the public and these efforts have had a tremendous impact on the effective utilization of the data. The data should also be available to reuse from a licensing perspective.
Data.gov has thousands of data sets that can be searched and utilized to build web and mobile applications that can provide great value to users in areas such as climate, public safety, education, finance etc.
