So in order to avoid a disaster, both the CIOs and CFOs must spare sometime in discussing strategies and plans that needs to keep them on track.

So by that here’s a list that features 5 tactical tips for CIOs to keep their firm away from overspending.

Now failing to do such a kind of planning can simply throw of your annual budget plans. “The vendors approach departments and get them wanting solutions that may be overlapping with something the IT department already has on its strategic plan, it lands on their doorstep six months into their budget year, and it may only be half a million, but it begins to throw things out of whack."
