With the pace of business only increasing, more companies depend on a growing number of new and disruptive technologies to support their mission and maintain competitive advantage. At the same time, CIOs must respond quickly to evolving markets, think in terms of revenue objectives, and truly run IT as a business. These factors put tremendous pressure on CIOs. They need to support greater speed, agility, and efficiency, even while ensuring quality, compliance, and security – a tall order.
Managing the technology organization as a business requires CIOs to become the “CEOs” of their IT organizations. This means evaluating working capital, plan, and forecast requirements, and adapting to the changing needs of the client. KPMG refers to this approach as Technology Business Management (TBM) – enabling a more efficient and effective IT organization.
