Upcoming features, Oct-Nov 2011

These are the features where I am currently looking for input. Please note that the deadline for all submissions of ideas (not necessarily for actual interviews) is October 15, unless otherwise stated. Please email, rather than call, in the first instance.


FT report on green business
I am looking for some examples of how businesses have used IT to develop greener products. I am looking to speak to manufacturers, plus perhaps one or two consultants. The focus is on Cad/Cam and PLM.

FT report on cybersecurity
I am looking for businesses using cloud computing, as well as independent experts, to talk about the security challenges.

CNCB feature: the paperless office
Why hasn’t the paperless office taken off? For a CEO level piece I am looking to speak to academics, consultants, analysts and one or two vendors on the topic. It would be good to speak to a couple of companies or public sector bodies that have moved to a paperless system. We might also look at tablets. Readership is worldwide so please, no UK only examples.

Tech Target – note deadline for ideas EOP 18 10 11
For an upcoming eBook, I am covering analytics and BI in the cloud. End user examples, and analyst comment welcome. Strictly no vendor comment, sorry.

For a separate piece I am looking at “Rethinking and revamping database strategies to enable business agility”. Vendors can be mentioned here but user comment, as ever, is preferred.
