Federal News Network: Public, private sector CIOs face uphill climb to trusted partner status

“Even as we recognize the role is shifting and recognition of business IT is becoming more predominant, 67% of CIOs still felt the top factor of their performance was their ability to cut costs,” said LaVerne Council, the national managing principal for enterprise technology strategy and innovation practice at Grant Thornton, on Ask the CIO. “That is so interesting given the center stage of technology. This out-ranked successful execution, improving projects and services delivery, and even their ability to thwart cyber threats. That’s very telling.”

“Council, who is a former CIO at the Department of Veterans Affairs, said respondents who believe their fellow executives are measuring their value by how they can cut costs may be taking too shallow of a perspective. She said the CIO’s value comes from knowing the technology assets their organization is using and how they efficiently manage those systems, networks and data.” Listen to the podcast here.
