A constant curiosity will encourage dialogue, understanding and ultimately efficient solutions that work for an entire organisation.

120 directly in the technology department, probably another 50 in related and ‘shadow' IT functions.
What's your top priority for the next 12 months?

What's your annual IT budget?
Around £10m per year, plus strategic programmes.
