CIOs and procurement pros partner on cloud services

Tom Kaneshige | April 21, 2014
Cloud services can help CIOs free themselves from worrying about managing data centers, scaling capacity, configuring servers, applying security patches and other routine maintenance so they can focus on providing insight to improve the business.

As Iyer says, a successful partnership isn't always about what the CIO can do for the business manager, but what the business manager, especially a procurement pro, can do for the CIO.

"Every time I hit a budget, the number goes down, and now that I've hit nine or 10 quarters in a row, people think you're Superman," Iyer says. "You're punished when you beat a budget. So the targets I have, which are impossible, I can't hit without Marty."
