CIO's Guide to Business Information Systems Planning

In-depth guidance on how to identify, select, build, deploy, and maintain information systems that drive competitive advantage for the CIO. MUST Read! (1,000 pages)

There are two key components of a CIO's job responsibility: provide a reliable technology platform and enable enterprise strategy. Both are intertwined - really, two parts of the same process. Arguably, the former is more important than the latter. 

So, the three essential questions or challenges for a CIO are:

  1. How do you create information systems that support enterprise strategy? 
  2. How do you create a reliable technology platform that these systems run on? 
  3. How do you make them both adaptable to change?

The answer lies in understanding:

  • How does business create value?
  • How does IT support the business in creating this value?

The concept of a "business information system" encompasses the two.

This discussion helps you understand:

  • What is a business information system?
  • How to identify functionality that drives business strategy?
  • How to build and/or buy business information systems?
  • How to extend business information systems?
  • How do business information systems communicate with each other (seamless integration)?
  • How to deploy underlying technology components - network, databases etc.?
  • How to ensure adaptability to change?

An excellent and in-depth discussion on the key concepts a CIO must understand to do they job.
