CIO Pilot

Nothing helps businesses improve like high quality feedback.

Our method gives you the tools you need to listen to your IT stakeholders in a structured way and then translate the findings into more effective decisions.

CIO Pilot:

  • Helps you identify your pain points
  • Provides you with actionable recommendations
  • Guides you to make the right prioritizations

Our research shows that the average Nordic organization spends 44% more on IT while achieving 27% less value from IT compared to the top quarter organizations.

IT leaders deal with the challenge of constantly managing rapidly changing business requirements while maintaining a competitive cost level. This requires strong governance of the performance of IT resources. CIO Pilot will enable you to achieve this.

CIO Pilot gives you recommendations on how to improve. It is a cost and resource efficient assessment of your IT performance which puts it in relation to our comprehensive benchmark database of large Nordic companies.

Unlike strategies and plans based on theoretical underpinnings, our services give you a map of what the terrain looks like in reality, which is especially important before and during major transformations.

Real results

Performance benchmarking is a powerful tool which properly used is proven to reduce cost and improve value.

Based on our over fifteen years of experience, we have found that organizations which on a regular basis have participated in our benchmarking studies show strong improvements against the industry average.

In general, the longer an organization has participated in the benchmark, the lower the costs and the greater the value it has been able to achieve.
