IT Financial Management Maturity Model

The role of the CIO and influence of IT organizations have changed radically in the last ten years.  In the private sector, CIOs are part of the corporate C-suite influencing strategic direction and revenue growth; in the public sector, CIOs are members of governors’ cabinets influencing citizen-facing solutions.

This means CIOs must have strong financial teams backing them up.  The finance team must serve as a strategic partner, developing business cases, unpacking costs, and supporting supplier management strategies.  The finance team itself can move from a reporting role into an influencing role.

This white paper describes how IT finance organizations can move from being perceived as a back office function to directly influencing strategy.
