As you read further, you will learn what are the essential components of operating the organizational IT infrastructure. I have identified six focus areas for the IT executive: Capacity Planning Change Management Disaster Recovery Planning High Availability Problem Management Security Planning These areas form the foundation for a broader strategy presented in my chapter of the book CIO Wisdom Best Practices From Silicon Valley's Leading IT Experts.
