CIO and information technology myths

Experience shows that while these views have held true for some 30 years, holding on to them today means that businesses will miss opportunities to create and extract real value from IT investment.

Value from IT results from strategic IT planning underpinned by enterprise architecture, a business-aligned IT portfolio, and business-focused IT performance.

Such value can only be achieved by business and IT working together to make decisions which align business and IT strategy. And not if you hold on to some of the ten commonly held CIO and IT myths.
