Intel officials, like those at other vendors, tend to talk about what their technologies and products can do for others. This week, Intel turned attention to what its technology is doing for its own business. The company unveiled its annual IT report, shining a light on the benefits of the technologies that Intel uses to support its approximately 105,000 employees, who are supported by more than 6,300 IT professionals. "We wanted to highlight the increasing importance of IT to the organization," CIO Kim Stevenson said. Intel IT also can use the company as a test bed for Intel technologies, Stevenson said. Intel expects to save $100 million through 2017 by using the Internet of things and big data analytics, while it is using its Unite technology to bring wireless connectivity to more than 500 conference rooms, enabling meetings to begin more quickly, which increases worker productivity. The chip maker is growing the amount of data being stored in the cloud, making the data center more efficient, and designing and building products faster, all while reducing the amount it spends per employee and the percentage of IT spending against revenue. We look at some highlights from Intel's annual IT report.
