CIOs are business game changers

How would you characterize your company's current IT organization? Would you say it's more of a cost center, business peer, or business game changer? The way you answer that question likely has a direct correlation to whether or not your organization is pursuing IT-driven business innovation.

A recent survey by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services found that companies with innovative IT are "much more likely to have access to the right technology, knowledge of the business, and the right technical skills and to be more receptive to new ideas." These organizations do not view their IT departments as cost centers or service providers; they view their IT teams as business game changers.
