CIO: Leverage what you have and oh yeah, a little innovation please

I was talking to a friend the other day about his role as a CIO at a large fast food chain and he was always challenged to reduce his spend and do more with what he already had in production.  Not a very good sign if your trying to sell technology products.   What transpired during this conversation is very similar to the issues set forth in the slide presentation from Abbie Lundberg. After leaving it still appears she has the flair for the dramatic with the title of the presentation, but is it dramatic or a reality? One thing is sure, the role of CIO is changing according to Thomas Wailgum at per a recent survey of CIO’s – “Given the… warning signs, it’s easy to speculate that the CIO’s role and the department’s sovereign power might be slip-sliding away.”
