A CIO fights to keep his tech options open
In today's IT market, vendors tell users that engineered, converged and highly integrated systems deliver the greatest efficiency. But some users believe a heterogeneous environment is the best path to savings. Michael Spears is one of those users. Spears is the CIO of the National Council on Compensation Insurance, which gathers and analyzes data about the workers' compensation insurance market and offers products and services to help more than 900 insurance companies and nearly 40 state governments better understand risks, costs and industry trends. The Boca Raton, Florida-based not-for-profit brings in about $160 million in revenue; the IT department accounts for about a third of the organization's expenses.
