As technology becomes the top driver of enterprise growth, CIOs must rethink how their companies prioritize and track technology funding. Current technology funding models are incomplete, as they fail to capture all technology spending across the enterprise, and they are too slow and rigid or narrow in scope to support innovative and fast-changing digital investments. A new model is emerging that allows CIOs to be the steward of enterprise technology spending, empowers IT and other business leaders to make funding decisions faster, and makes the drivers and benefits of technology investments transparent.
