Companies spend anywhere from 3% – 10% of their gross revenue on technology hardware, software and services. Is the money well spent?
Increasingly, mega enterprise projects are launched by technologists who may or may not completely understand the investment’s connection with overall corporate strategy. It’s not unusual for a large enterprise to spend well in excess of a billion dollars a year on technology; some of the largest enterprises spend several billion every year on computing and communications technology and services.
What kind of guidance do senior (non-technology) executives receive about the prudence of large technology investments? Who provides oversight to boards of directors who frequently receive only minimal amounts of information about huge technology investments?
I provide insight and analysis to senior executives and boards faced with large technology challenges or technology acquisition plans. I also provide M&A guidance to senior management and directors about the implications of business technology integration.
