"CEOs know that if they want their companies to grow at all, they???re going to have to invest in newer technologies like mobile and cloud." Seriously? Those "technologies" at best may reduce some future expenditures (i.e. moving to the "cloud") and except for a very few niche areas, any new developments in mobile commuting are all but irrelevant. . Technology is just a tool and IT workers are just mechanics. CEO's have no respect for CIO's and technology fan boys for that reason.
