Who Would Be More Valued By The Mother-History?

An excellent selection of articles on the role of IT technologies in business development, its’ efficiency increase and struggle for the client, has come to me today from the McKinzey & Company. The changing role of IT-Directors (strengthening of influence) is no longer news, including that for the legal market. Provisioning of «technical support» for business mobility and its’ key processes (time tracking, knowledge management, etc.) has moved into the category of non-essentials. Now, the best CIO (chief information officer) is expected to take a leading role in risk management – information’s security, its’ safe transfer and control over its use within the firm.
On the one hand, it seems to be easier to transfer this function to the outsourced professionals. But, on the other hand, the value of an employee, dealing with assignments of such a high priority for business, is comparable, or even more valuable, than roles of the firm’s chief accountant or financial director. I have not yet observed any cases of transmitting this function to the outsourcers…

There is a situation, in which the IT-Director (still do not know, which is better — your own or external) knows, what and where it is kept, + he/she has access to all information that is so jealously guarded by lawyers, financiers and partners of the firm. Here you have clouds, mobile access and other advanced technologies. Dilemma … though!
