CIO’s are not recognized as experts: start acting like an expert

In a new report by Fruition Partners 100 CIO’s in the UK were asked about their opinions and observations in regard to Cloud Computing. In an article on Business Cloud News on this report I’ve found this intriguing quote: “Over three quarters (78 per cent) of CIOs stated that the rest of the business frequently does not seek their advice when it comes to the procurement of public cloud services, and about one in two CIOs believe their employees are side-steppingĀ their own IT departments and going directly to cloud service providers for application support.” It doesn’t surprise me that that most CIO’s feel that their IT departments areĀ sidestepped by employees.
