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.
