It’s not just about planning for the future; CIOs have to bring “a certain energy and velocity to the conversation, because the change is relentless and the pace is increasing,” says David Reis.
One way in which CIOs can attain the ultimate goal of providing IT solutions that are scalable, sustainable and cost-effective? By choosing partners – not vendors, says David Reis.
