October 26, 2016

While we are seeing more CIOs reporting to CEOs and other business leaders, most IT departments still report up through the CFO.  This article from Information Week provides 5 key reasons why CIOs should foster this relationship within their organizations, specifically:

  1. You need investment
  2. Security costs money
  3. You have to understand revenue
  4. You must retain talent
  5. The team matters

I encourage you to read the full article on Information Week for more insights, but that information can also be valuable to CIOs who do not report into the CFO.
