KuppingerCole introduced CIO GPS

Wiesbaden, May 22, 2013 – During the Opening Keynote at KuppingerCole’s European Identity & Cloud Conference 2013, which took place in Munich last week, Martin Kuppinger introduced KuppingerCole’s CIO GPS (GPS stands for Governance/Privacy and Data Protection/Security). The 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 and 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.

There are other functional areas, beyond “GPS”, that a CIO has to focus on. However, the three areas in scope have grown exponentially in relevance over the course of recent years. Many initiatives such as Cloud Computing done right, the Mobile and Social Enterprise, and others, play mainly in that field. Thus, the GPS goes far beyond “Security” and far beyond the CISO scope.

For all three functional areas the CIO GPS looks at what CIOs and their IT Organizations need to do for maximum benefits regarding the three business challenges

  • IT Spend Optimization
  • Business IT/Alignment
  • Strategic Procurement
