re: Secret CIO: 5 Steps To That CIO Title
At age 45 with 4 years of IT experience and in line for the CFO title, you might be a better fit for CFO. It sounds like the field you have the most education and experience in, maybe look for CFO opportunities. Contrary to the idea that people who are technical canGt lead, there are people out there with decades of IT education and experience with the leadership skills to be at the GǣCGǥ level. Remember throwing the last guy under the bus, might not sound like leadership to everyone. (GǣIT was a messGǥ) Best of luck in becoming a chief.

Very solid advice on why being pro-active and attentive to what is going on outside your immediate environment is always important.

Excellent advice to take action on two fronts -- within the company and looking outside for opportunities -- and not just wait patiently for good things to happen. Best line: "Soups might get better with simmering, but careers don't."

When it comes to managing data, dont look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
