Speaking at the UK Technology Partnering and Investment Forum in London last week, Norris said, "We went through a period where the CIO was seen as a business driver, an innovator, somebody who took the business forward, someone who brought revenue opportunities to the business. I think that has gone.
"The IT director role has fallen backwards into delivering a service to the business at the most effective cost."
