Blog-post by Myles Suer, Mon, 12/22/2014 - 18:22

When you talk to CIOs today about their business priorities, the top of their list is better connecting what IT is doing to business strategy. Or put another way, it is about establishing business/IT alignment. One area where CIOs need to make sure there is better alignment is enterprise analytics. CIOs that I have talk to share openly that business users are demanding the ability to reach their apps and data anywhere and on any device.

It is all about the 'I' in CIO

'I' stands for innovation as much as information. Here's six ideas to make innovation happen.

They commoditize.” (“Dealing with Darwin”, Geoffrey Moore, page 1).

I just came across a PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP report that does a good job of articulating the importance of the CIO-CMO relationship. Hopefully, the quote from the report helps drive home the point.
