Why It Matters: State CIOs are vital stakeholders in IT decisions, but the appointed position has a high turnover rate…especially after a new governor is elected. With such frequent turnover, it’s important to:
- Follow election cycles closely
- Ensure that your marketing and relationship-building efforts are focused on the multiple points of influence in the buying process — not just the CIO
- Think about how you can build bridges with line-of-business leaders influencing tech decisions in their areas
- Consider the other C-suite positions involved in IT decisions (CTO, CISO, CDO, CInO, CBO, CFO) and their staff
