Discussion 3: IT Financial Metrics
This week we explore some basic concepts regarding the financial concerns of the CIO. I have a number of very short headlines from the IT consulting firm, Apptio. Lets think about it this way. You are the new CIO of a large wholesale manufacturing firm. The CFO has historically run the numbers for the IT component, but projects have always been pitched more for their aesthetic value over RoI. Present a discussion for your CFO, CEO, and disseminate to your IT staff, on how you would like to frame the IT fiscal with a logic for doing so.
What I would do is read each of these very short articles, generate a list of talking points from all of them, and use them in combinations all the week. If you are only going to post once you will need to cover all of them.
