CIO’s Priority – Cost or Quality

What should be a CIO’s top priority – cost or quality?

A very profound question with an equally profound answer – depends!

To say that either cost or quality is always the first priority would be incorrect. Cost is always a consideration, especially in the case of companies in the social domain, whose target segment is the poorest of the poor and the objective is to ensure maximum returns at both ends of the supply chain while being self-sustaining.
