Athabasca University’s CIO explains why IT governance is a must-do


    To some CIOs, it may occasionally seem like the inmates are running the asylum with all the demands for greater device choice, unrestricted use of apps and so on. Without any kind of IT governance, however, the situation could be even worse.

    Good IT governance provides a common framework for making all kinds of technology investment decisions, from back-office and infrastructure to data in the cloud and beyond. At the recent CIO Association of Canada Peer Forum, we took an opportunity to talk to Mike Battistel at Athabasca University about why IT governance has emerged as his most important priority.
