Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"High tech was once the back end of business strategy. The two are now one, says tech exec Jose Eiras, author of "The Practical CIO."  To get with the program, chief information officers should: Think like a CEO. Unlike other areas of a firm, information technology operates best "when it's managed like a free-standing business" as opposed to a service center, Eiras said." (Investors.com, April 16, 2010)
