Find out how to make the right information technology (IT) decisions for your company. The authors, a CEO and former CIO, reveal how to get what you need -- and what you pay for -- in purchasing new business systems and software. Too often, business mangers fail to understand IT operational concerns, while IT managers look past time and budget constraints or don't fully recognize business goals. This book provides simple clear tools for achieving IT and business goals.

" . . . presents a dialogue between technology and business that is delightful to read, and vital to achieving the technology payoff that everyone is striving for". -- Al Erisman, Director of Technology, The Boeing Company
