“The big focus is big data. Every organisation is having a conversation about big data, but very few people are actually harnessing it."

 

PETER LUMLEY, PA BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE expert

Sea change in IT demands a pilot for difficult waters

PA’s Peter Lumley, a business intelligence expert, is quoted in the Business of Consulting special report. The article looks at how changes in both business and consumer technology are forcing changes in the way companies buy IT, and the advice and services IT consultants provide.

Commenting on changes in who is spending on IT-related work, Peter says: “As a consultant, I rarely sell to CIOs.

"There has been a debate over the past five to 10 years about whether the CIO should be at board level. In truth, with recent financial challenges, the CIO has been forced back to 'looking at the plumbing'."

Peter goes on to talk about the emergence of big data: "The big focus is big data. Every organisation is having a conversation about big data, but very few people are actually harnessing it.

"Lots of businesses have existing data that they are not using yet."
