The C-Suite Gap
All excellent points and timely - the problem (and I am guilty of over-posting this comment) is that the executive suites only see IT as a salary and benefit expense line item.  Accounting department reports numbers and as long as everything is up and running, no corelation is made between results and cost.  As an independent consultant, I told my clients that I am the guy you pay NOT to see in the office - that if I am effective, I am doing my job pro-actively and behind the scenes, ergo = no problems on your side.   Management, though, all too often listens to the siren song of low cost workers from Tata, Wipro, Infosys ----- and shareholder value.   Replacement of quality American workers.  And the points in your essay NEVER make it to the table.
