Compliance and Beyond
Here’s the unhappy truth about IT budgets: they’re tending toward flat at best. The one place where IT shops have to spend – and where CFOs have to approve, is when industry and government regulations come into play.
Marketers have realized this for a while now, which has led to a glut of products claiming to help IT organizations meet regulatory obligations. At the same time, CIOs and IT architects have understood their own budgetary challenges. For them, investments in products for purposes of meeting regulations had better do a lot more for the business than simply satisfy auditors.
In this Global CIO chat, we discuss what it really means for an application to satisfy regulatory needs and what IT decision makers expect beyond compliance.
