I’m very excited about my guest for you today. It’s Barry Libenson, Global CIO for Experian. He is responsible for the design and delivery of global technology strategy. Prior to joining Experian in 2015, he was Senior Vice President and CIO of Safeway in North America. Before that, he was the CIO and VP of Land O’Lakes. He has a continuous track record of huge success in the CIO capacity.

I am excited to bring Barry back for "Round 2" - his second episode with me and the RedZone Podcast. You will get the following out of this show as it relates to CIO Offensive and Defensive Strategy for a World Class company:

  • Why you must understand strategies around Micro Services and APIs, how Barry’s topflight team is a key component to this strategy, how he approaches legacy and ‘build new’, and rapid iteration and testing in his environment.
  • Idea Incubation and 3 Innovation Labs at Experian coupled with M&A
  • Nurturing a mindset that can’t be disrupted or blindsided by tech disruption
  • Why moving to the cloud is a debatable strategy and more of a tactic
  • Barry’s approach to building portability using Micro Services with legacy apps
  • His relentless pursuit of security excellence. He dives into his layered defense and ‘hunting approach’
  • The role of AI and Machine Learning at Experian in developing products of the future

I recently had a wonderful talk with Pascal Finette. I am really excited to share our conversation on the exponential technologies with you. Pascal is the head of Singularity University's SU Labs, where he leverages most intractable problems with cutting-edge technologies. One of the concepts we have delved into during our discussion was the concept of innovating organization at the edge instead of the core and how to approach growth through the lens of this concept. A lot of us are familiar with innovation when it comes to processes. How is it done with a product that is a business unit?

Listen to more about the question to ask about open-sourcing, concept of “crow funding”, and the importance of moonshot thinking and exploring more at the edge.

 4 Key Learning Points:

  1. The importance of the innovation at the edge of the core of an organization.
  2. The importance of moonshot thinking and asking big questions.
  3. What to be aware of when it comes to implementing open source concept.
  4. How to use the crowd funding mechanism to utilize talent from outside of the organization.
