Cost efficiencies of IT


Satisfaction amongst key stakeholders improved

The management and IT personnel at a global industrial company had low levels of trust in their own IT department after an unsuccessful outsourcing deal. The respective levels of responsibility for IT in the business units were unclear and the IT department had not succeeded in establishing its new role. The company appointed a new CIO with the task of rectifying the lack of trust.
