How is GM IT Doing Post 6/28/2012 Interview with Randy Mott
Just checking to see if these goals were met and are flourishing (key word)?

Randy said: By January 2013, Mott expects to have many pieces in place: a strategy and vendors for GM's new enterprise data warehouse; the Warren data center up and running; an IT portfolio management and CBA system in place with business units; and a portfolio of projects laid out that's bigger than 2012's?

Randy also said:  'GM will have six caching centers near most of its auto engineers, to ensure that the processing-intensive work they do maintains the highest performance."

I would like to see if these results have been achieved with 2 1/2 years into Mott's transformation plan.  Having prepared and presented many cost benefit business cases for IT services, I have not found any Executive Management that validated the savings and ROI of the effusive promulgations made by CIO. 

Just because Mott (or any CIO) says it, doesn't make it true.  Ask the core business group (and engineers) and look at the bottom line.  Make sure to account for time and labor in that number because it is typically left out.

Just askin'
