How do you turn IT from a cost center into a verifiable value provider? This "perrenial favorite" question comes from J.D. Irving CIO Martin Davis.

The answer is obvious. Show quantifiable value. Of course, that's not always easy even when IT is producing value.

Anyhow, this "perrennial favorite" question as Martin calls it will be the topic in our #CIOchat this Thursday from 2-3 p.m. ET. I hope you can join us. Last week's #CIOchat generated 231 Tweets from 39 contributors.

If information and data are truly transformative and if IT is truly strategic, why do so few CIOs report directly to the CEO? This great question was recently asked by Enterprise CIO Forum editorial director Bill Laberis. As such, this is where we'll focus our attention in this week's #CIOchat Thursday 2-3 p.m. ET.

A CIO’s guide to reorganizations

“Reorganization to me is shuffling boxes, moving boxes around. Transformation means that you're really fundamentally changing the way the organization thinks, the way it responds, the way it leads. It's a lot more than just playing with boxes.” -Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.

The historian Charlton Ogburn, once observed, “We tend …to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.”

A comprehensive preparedness plan for security breaches is essential. No, critical. The average cost of cleaning up a security breach and the fallout has doubled since 2010 to an average of $12.7 million. And a breach can take up to 65.5 days to resolve.

The attached white paper describes in detail how to be ready when it happens if, indeed, a breach, occurs. Are you ready? Are you prepared? Is the right resolution team in place?

What questions should a CIO be prepared to answer in a job interview? Well, I found an article in CIO.com in the U.K that lists 49 questions.

So with that, our #CIOchat this week will ask "what questions should CIO candidates be prepared to answer in a job interview." We chat from 2-3 p.m ET on Thursday. Last week's #CIOchat got 34 participants to generate 307 Tweets.
