Strategic Imperatives for CIOs
I really see five strategic imperatives for CIOs. The first is manage IT as a business. Funds are always required for big transformations. But yet, when you look at it, roughly 80% of federal IT spend goes to O&M. The other thing is making sure that you have accurate and good cost information for your services and products. Technology Business Management certainly can help in that area. Procurement, spend optimization to include licensing and rationalizing applications, freeing up funds for modernization. I think moving as much on-premise work to commercial cloud environments as you can is a good business investment. And then really take a look at her look at managed services. Everything is a service that's being offered out there.
