Q: What’s driving CMOs to exclude IT from their enterprises’ Big Data plans?
A: I’ve personally been in situations where you have a frank discussion with your CIO and say, “I know I’m not the cutest kid in the room here, but I’ve got to move. If you can’t help me, I’m going to go someplace where I can get some help.” Consequently, that means outsourcing. It might ruffle some feathers, but … [if Big Data] is a top priority and IT is overloaded, as they often are, you do have to outsource.
