The CIO’s Handbook: Enterprise IT Management for Professionals

Anticipated Release: January 2019

Put simply, The CIO’s Handbook is a complete reference for understanding and managing large-scale enterprise IT organizations.

Today’s enterprise IT systems are increasingly integrated and automated, and advanced technologies like Cloud, Big Data, and Machine Learning are becoming commonplace in nearly every organization. Yet traditional challenges such as cost control and team management still exist. And when you seek support, every vendor or industry group seems to have their own “best practice solution.” 

How can you assemble these realities, along with all the components and functions of a full-scale enterprise IT environment, into an effective management approach? 

Zachary Kelly’s The CIO’s Handbook steps you through the What and the How of every enterprise IT functional area, concluding with a comprehensive Tools and Techniques section that gives you immediately useful enterprise IT management materials.

The CIO’s Handbook shows the usefulness and limitations of common approaches such as ITIL, PMBOK, Agile, DevOps, CMMI, and many others, but does not simply provide a list and critique of these approaches. Instead, The CIO’s Handbook puts each of these frameworks into the context of real-world enterprise IT management, and the context of broader, cross-cutting themes such as“efficiency,” “cost effectiveness,” and “sustainability” that guide and direct the deployment and use of industry frameworks.
