CIOs All Agree: Mainframes Are More Strategic Than Themselves

Alan Radding over at MainframeZone.com neatly destroys a recent Micro Focus-sponsored Standish Group marketing brochure survey of select CIOs. Several people posting comments to Alan's article also make good points.

I'd like to make one more point. According to CIO Magazine, the average tenure of a CIO barely exceeds four years. A supermajority (70%) of Standish Group-selected CIOs agreed that their mainframes are strategic. But, when asked to look forward 5 to 10 years, they at least weren't sure. Ergo, all of The Standish Group-selected CIOs agree: their mainframes are more strategic, on average, than themselves — and the mainframes will undoubtedly serve their employers much, much longer.
