Do you have 3 mainframes systems and one stand alone application that you use for recording financial results? Do any of these systems talk to one another? Are you starting to use Saas applications to better manage your data? Knowing how to leverage technologies, old or new, is key to being an effective CIO.

 

During a SAS70 audit, it is critical that you have an deep understanding of your systems and how they work together. If you are able to provide documentation, such as network diagrams, and data hierarchies to your auditor, then they will be more efficient when determining the controls necessary to be tested within your organization. An effective CIO cannot leverage technologies within corporate walls or as outsourced solutions without having a complete understanding of IT networks, applications, and operating systems. What helps you know how to leverage your company technologies? Or to predict what technologies will work best within your company? sas70expert@gmail.com
