What your business results are telling you about your IT environment

Want your IT organization to have an impact on the business and deliver real value? Don’t look at your IT environment to figure out what your priorities should be. Look at your 10-K.


As a leader of HP’s CIO Agenda workshops, I work with a lot of CIOs to identify the business value that technology can bring to their enterprises. One thing we’ve seen over and over is that business symptoms point to IT solutions. Take your business results and benchmark against your peers. If you’re lagging behind market leaders, look at the technology at use in those areas – that is where you’ll find the greatest potential for improvement.
