Sun CIO Shares Insight on Streamlining IT at Sun
A recent Forbes interview with Sun CIO Bob Worrall on how Sun IT has been streamlining and consolidating internal applications since late 2005 sheds light on the challenges and rewards. Here are a couple of quotable quotes:
"A big part of this challenge isn't the technology. It's getting the business side to understand how to run the business differently."
"When it comes time to invest in an application, the first question we ask is whether we can buy it as a service, and, if so, that's the preferred path."
One can picture the many tough decisions behind the scenes.
