KuppingerCole CIO GPS

The KuppingerCole CIO GPS shows the nine areas CIOs should focus on for IT Spend Optimization, Business IT/Alignment, and Strategic Procurement, when looking at GRC (Governance, Risk Management, Compliance) and Information Security.

GPS stands for Governance, Privacy and Data Protection, and Security.

The KuppingerCole GPS provides orientation for CIOs and their teams on finding their way through all these trends and buzzwords, identifying the areas that provide the greatest business benefits.

  Governance Privacy and Data Protection Security
IT Spend Optimization Working to the Business, not the Auditor Information Stewardship – Spotlight on Risk and People Focus on the Big Picture, Avoid Point Solutions
Business/IT Alignment Enterprise GRC – Integrate Business and IT GRC Enabling a new level of Customer Experience: Life Management Platforms Assignment Management – Access as an Asset
Strategic Procurement Standardized Cloud Service Provider Selection and Assurance Information Security instead of Technology Security Enable the Extended Enterprise by using Cloud Security Services
