Sounds familiar? I have written a number of articles recently talking about the challenges facing CIOs which are the links below
Firstly the 3Cs; Compliance, Consumerisation and the Cloud
Secondly the need for the CIO to be more business focused and cut the ties with the IT department.
I see this happening, but not quickly enough and technology, in the hands of business people, is accelerating the problem where now 1 in 3 employees is playing roulette with their company in the Cloud
The quote I started with was from a book The Evolving Role Of The CIO, by the Concours Group written in 2004 and that was before iPads, Cloud apps, and the mashups that are breaking company security policies
What is the answer – simple. PASTA.
Check out this blog on PASTA and tell me why it won’t work. If you can’t, then CIOs need to change their diet, and quickly.
