Do you also feel that the only value contribution the CIO makes is by reducing his own costs?
The benefit that IT delivers is often only determined when development projects are upcoming. That is insufficient to make the value contribution of IT clear.
Would you also like to see greater transparency about the benefits, costs and opportunities of the CIO’s area of responsibility in day-to-day business? We can be of assistance.
The CIO and the area for which he is responsible are, of course, obligated to carry out their tasks with sustainable efficiency.
Performance transparency is only possible, however, if commitments are described clearly and are benefit-oriented. Cost transparency, clear and relevant business process quality criteria and a sourcing strategy based on sound judgement are the basis.
The CIO’s area of responsibility does not just provide application systems and other technologies. To make its value contribution it must lastingly and reliably provide users with IT services that enable them to do their business better – and provide them where they are needed: at the user’s workplace. Modular systems consisting of desktops, LAN/WAN, servers and application packages are no longer in demand.
