Learning from those that have experienced IT Transformation!

The CIO Challenge

Don’t just sit there, read some of the experiences many experts have already come across! Then engage your IT Department.

Leading the CIO discussion: A Networking place where “straight talking” technology related topics can be addressed head on so that collaboratively we can support the changing CIO office. We want to support those leaders who want to move their technology departments or operational utility services into the twenty twenties and beyond.

Trusting in Interim Consulting

Due to the nature of what Interim Consultants do they bring with them many years of exposure to multiple different IT change programmes across many differing business corporations. This is the experience one cannot just learn in a classroom environment. We all know that IT and Operational migration or change programmes are probably better handled by experience that’s been there or done it before, so CIO’s should utilise Interim’s to support their transition projects.

Cloud is here to stay

Brace yourself as we see major Cloud providers such as Amazon, Microsoft, Google and VMware all building data centres in the European Union (EU) as locally based enterprises insist their cloud data stays in the region. Don’t use the lame excuse of security concerns to prevent your department exploring the Cloud. Cloud is not for every application in every business but it is for many applications especially Microsoft 365 and some utility applications to run one’s business. CIOs need to choose.

Technology Comfort Zone

The more open minded CIO would certainly recognise the value in the market of seasoned and experienced interim consultants. So take advantage of a temporary short term period using Interims to move the CIO office out of one’s comfort zone. Interims have agility, and gravitas to see what’s needed to be done and usually over qualified for the role, however interims often open up technology innovation and bring new fresh ideas to the table.
