CIO – IT strategies for managers

The integration of IT and business

Editorial profile

CIO is the innovative information forum for CIOs and CXOs.

More than ever, IT is a fixed component of corporate business

strategy. IT makes it possible to explore new fields of business,

optimises processes and often delivers the deciding competitive

advantage. A company’s IT is no longer anchored only in the

IT department, but is penetrating into all company departments.

Due to this change, increasing demands are made on

IT strategy as well as those responsible for it in every company.

As an integrated media brand, CIO provides the target decisionmaker

group 365 times a year with the basis to meet this rising

requirement and to understand and practise the efficient use of

IT in the company.

Based on best practices, CIO demonstrates the successful implementation

of IT, preferably in globally positioned corporations

and multinational players. The strategic and economic aspects

of IT are thus always top priorities. Furthermore, CIO tracks the

most important technological trends and management methods.

The target groups

CIO is aimed at IT and business executives who recognize

IT as a strategic tool necessary for attaining business goals.

CIOs (Chief Information Officers)

‰ Board of managers

‰ Managing directors

‰ IT and business managers

‰ Regional and division managers

Special issues

CIO magazine is supplemented by the twice-yearly “CIO

spezial” issues. “CIO spezial” is marketed as an e-paper.

CIO spezial is the logical extension of the successful CIO

concept. The special issue expands on existing management

knowledge for decision makers responsible for implementing

the standardised ROI and TCO calculations in companies. In

addition, the readers of CIO spezial receive a systematic and

comparative overview of IT in Germany‘s largest companies.

4 Unified Communications


Hinzu kommt der Clou, der Mailbox-Pingpong tatsächlich

überflüssig macht: Presence. Über Kalenderinformationen,

Login-Status und Benutzerpräferenzen lässt sich anzeigen,

wie der gewünschte Kollege gerade am besten erreichbar ist.

Selbstverständlich kann Microsoft alles das auf die Bedürfnisse

der einzelnen Unternehmen maßschneidern. Zugänge

und Zugreifbarkeit lassen sich nach Wunsch steuern. Durch

ihre Anpassungsfähigkeit unterstützen die UC-Lösungen

laut Microsoft die IT-Abteilungen bei der Compliance, also

der Einhaltung von unternehmensinternen und gesetzlichen

Richtlinien. Die einfachste, aber vielleicht schlagendste Begründung

für eine Implementierung von UC jedoch lautet:

Integration fördert den geschäftlichen Erfolg.


Partner für UC

Microsoft-Partner helfen Firmen bei der Implementierung

von UC und selbstverständlich auch darüber hinaus.

Das Spektrum dieser Unternehmen ist vielfältig: Spezialisten

befinden sich ebenso darunter wie IT-Branchengrößen, für

die auch UC inzwischen ein Betätigungsfeld ist. Manche Partner

operieren weltweit, andere sind in bestimmten Regionen

besonders stark aufgestellt. Einige sammeln Expertise vor

allem in wenigen Branchen, andere betreuen eine enorme

Bandbreite von Kunden.

CIOs können auf dem Markt also Anbieter finden, die

punktgenau zu ihrem Unternehmen passen. Die Auswahl

sollen die folgenden Seiten erleichtern, auf denen sich sieben

UC-Partner vorstellen. Sie verfügen allesamt über Qualitätszertifikate

von Microsoft sowie beachtliche Referenzen: Glück

& Kanja, Dimension Data, infoWAN, Avanade, T-Systems,

Hewlett-Packard und Arvato.

Aktionsprogramm für Green-IT

Möchten Sie auch in Ihrem Rechenzentrum „Grüne IT“ einziehen lassen, sollten Sie sich vorab mit den „zehn entscheidenden

Aktionspunkten“ auseinandersetzen, die das Beratungsunternehmen Gartner definiert hat:

1. Definieren Sie eine Umweltpolitik.

2. Beginnen Sie mit dem Messen und Analysieren.

3. Bilden sie „grüne“ Mitarbeiter aus.

4. Wagen Sie es, Geräte abzuschalten, wenn sie nicht benötigt werden, statt sie stand-by zu stellen.

5. Statt „immer an“ soll in Zukunft „immer verfügbar“ gelten.

6. Optimieren Sie die Kühlung im Rechenzentrum und übernehmen Sie grüne Aspekte für neue Rechenzentren.

7. Entwickeln Sie Umweltkriterien, die auch für die Beschaffung gelten.

8. Fangen Sie an, Ihre Lieferanten zu bewerten und vermeiden Sie solche, die nur „grünes Gerede“ produzieren.

9. Entwickeln Sie eine grüne Abfallpolitik, die Prozesse, Kontrollen und Prüfpfade enthält.

10. Beachten sie die globalen Gesetzgebungen zur Abfallbeseitigung von elektronischen Geräten.

CIO online

CIO‘s online service offers its target group of decision-makers a basis for

coping with the growing requirements for IT in their daily work. The aim

is for them to understand the strategic use of IT and to apply it effectively. draws on best practice to describe how an IT strategy can be successfully

implemented in all areas of a company. The focus is always on the

value-adding and economic aspects of IT. It places IT’s strategic and

If the Client is granted the right to order individual advertisements within the purview of an Agreement,

the order is to be executed within one calendar year after the conclusion of agreement if nothing

else is agreed during the term of the master contract.

3. Right of refusal. IDG Media reserves the right to turn down advertising and supplement orders

– including individual advertising texts and supplements in the case of master contracts – on grounds

of content, origin or technical form in compliance with standard principles of IDG Media materially

justified by customary practice in the industry, if their content violates the law, infringes regulations

of the authorities or offends common decency or their publication is deemed to be unreasonable for

IDG Media. To this extent, IDG Media may withdraw from orders already confirmed – including from

individual part-orders based on master contracts – if it is not until after conclusion of the Agreement

that IDG Media becomes aware of the content, origin or technical form of an order that would have

entitled it to reject the same. Moreover, orders of supplements will not be binding on IDG Media until

after presentation of a sample of the supplement and its approval.

No supplements, whose format or getup give the reader the impression of their being an integral

part of the magazine or which contain third-party advertisements, will be accepted. The Client will

be notified of rejection of the order without delay. Any advertisements, which on account of their

artistic design are not recognizable as advertising, will be clearly marked by IDG Media with the word


4. Delivery of print material. The Client shall be responsible for the timely delivery of faultless

print material or supplements. The Client shall, when so required by IDG Media, immediately replace

any print material that is visibly unsuitable or damaged. The costs of producing ordered print material

as well as of major changes to originally agreed versions which are requested by the Client or are

attributable to the Client on account of the technical quality of the print material supplied, shall be

borne by the Client.

Where any defects in the print material are not immediately recognizable, but only become apparent

during the printing process, the Client shall not be entitled to file any claims in case of inadequate

printing. Print material will be returned only at the express wish of the Client. The obligation for safekeeping

ends three months after the last publication. IDG Media will have no obligation to examine

the content of advertisements and their legal admissibility.

5. Proofs. Proofs will be supplied only on express request; the Client shall bear responsibility for the

correctness of the returned proofs. IDG Media will consider only those corrections by the Client that

are notified to it within the period set on dispatch of the proof.

6. Warranty. In the case of bilateral mercantile transactions, the Client is obliged to notify possible

defects immediately after the placement of the advertisement, after they have come to his attention

or on discovery. In the case of a failure to fulfil the requirement to give notice of defects the placement

of the advertisement shall be deemed as approved.

In the case of wholly or partially illegible, incorrect or incomplete printing of an advertisement attributable

to IDG Media, the Client shall be entitled to subsequent performance through placement of

a make-good advertisement free from any defects, however only to the extent to which the purpose

of the advertisement was impaired. Should IDG Media fail to meet this obligation within a reasonable

fixed period or if the makegood advertisement is also defective, then the Client may in the case

of single advertisements demand reduction of the remuneration or withdraw from the Agreement;

in the case of master contracts the Client may only demand reduction of the remuneration relating

to the defective partial service.

In the case of errors of any type whatsoever resulting from transmission by telephone, IDG Media

will not be liable for the correctness of the acceptance of the order.

7. Liability. IDG Media will be exclusively liable for damages arising from intent, gross negligence

and missing guaranteed properties. In all other instances, IDG Media will be liable only in the event

of breach of a substantial obligation, or upon delayed performance or owing to impossibility of

performance, for damages whose occurrence had to be reasonably expected at the time of the

conclusion of the Agreement, not, however, for damages that have arisen fortuitously or indirect

damages or consequential damages.

Liability with respect to businessmen for gross and ordinary negligence, in the case of vicarious

agents who are not statutory agents or senior executives, also in the case of intent, is limited to the

customarily and typically foreseeable damage in such cases as cannot be controlled by the Client.

With negligent breach of a substantial obligation the liability of IDG Media will be limited at the

utmost to the amount of the agreed remuneration.

Statutory liability for personal damage and in accordance with the German Product Liability Act

remains unaffected, IDG has the option of the plea of contributory negligence.

The Client is entitled only to claim damages from IDG Media owing to defects to the extent that

IDG is liable under Articles 276, 278 BGB (German Civil Code).

Insofar as IDG Media is obliged to pay damages it shall treat the Client as if the Agreement had not

been concluded; damages owing to non-performance are excluded.

8. Terms of payment. If the Client does not make an advance payment, any invoices and voucher

copy will – if so agreed – be sent forthwith, but where possible within 14 days of publication of

the advertisement. The prices of the advertisements will be based on the relevant valid price list. In the

event of any changes, the new conditions will in the case of price reductions also apply immediately

to current orders, and in the case of price increases one month after notification of the respective

valid conditions in the imprint or other suitable place in the magazine. In the case of a price increase

the Client has the right to withdraw from the Agreement. The Client is obliged to exercise this right

within 5 working days after receipt of the information of the price increase. The price will be due

immediately on publication of the advertisement and payable within 20 days of receipt of the invoice,

unless any other term of payment or advance payment is agreed in a given instance. Where the time

of receipt of the invoice is not certain, the Client – provided it is not the user – shall be deemed to

be in default no later than 20 days after the due date and publication of the advertisement.

In their contracts with, and offers and invoices to, the advertisers, advertising agencies and other

advertising brokers are obliged to adhere to the price lists of IDG Media.

9. Discounts. Any discounts for early payment will be granted as provided in the price list. Any

agreed or granted discounts for the placement of several advertisements or on conclusion of master

contracts will apply only if the respective quantity and time frame are adhered to. Failure to comply

with the agreed quantity or the time frame will entitle IDG Media to subsequently charge the

discount in proportion to the difference between the discount granted and that corresponding to the

quantity actually purchased.

The application of a group discount to subsidiaries shall be subject to written proof of a capital tie-up

at a minimum rate of 50%. Any remuneration granted by IDG Media for the procurement of business

may not be passed on by the Client either in whole or in part.

10. Default of payment. Should the Client be in default with a payment, IDG Media will be entitled

to demand without prior notice default interest until receipt of the payment pursuant to Art. 288 Para 2

BGB (German Civil Code), or pursuant to Art. 288 Para 1 BGB and to charge collection expenses.

If IDG Media learns after conclusion of the Agreement that its pecuniary claim against the Client is

jeopardized by lack of solvency on the part of the Client due to its poor financial circumstances then

IDG Media may – notwithstanding any payment agreements – demand advance payment for any

placements already made, immediate payment of any outstanding invoices, even if not yet due,

reject further placements of advertisements or withdraw from the Agreement.

11. Voucher copy. In the case of advertisements, IDG Media will, by special agreement, supply a

voucher copy with the invoice. Depending on the type and scope of the advertising order, excerpts

from the advertisements, tear sheets or complete voucher copies will be supplied. If it is no longer

possible to procure a voucher copy, a legally binding certificate from IDG Media on the publication

and dissemination of the advertisement will be provided in its

12. Keyed advertisements. In the case of keyed advertisements, IDG Media will exercise the

due prudence of a businessman with respect to the safekeeping and timely forwarding of offers.

Registered letters, express letters and other forms of delivery and communication will be forwarded

by IDG Media only by normal mail. The replies to keyed advertisements will be kept for 4 weeks. Any

communications which cannot be delivered in this period will be destroyed.

13. Defaults in performance. IDG Media will not be liable for any performance delays arising

as a result of force majeure, strike, lock-out, business disruptions or other equivalent events. After

cessation of such an event, IDG Media may publish advertisements in the next possible issue of the

printed publication or it may withdraw from the Agreement in whole or in part. To this extent, the

Client shall not be entitled to claim any damages.

14. Privacy policy. IDG Media gives its assurance that the order will be executed exclusively in

accordance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetzes,

BDSG) and other legal regulations relating to data protection. The personal data provided by the

Client as part of the execution of the order, especially the placing and the processing of the order,

will be stored in a machine-readable manner, processed and used exclusively for this purpose, unless the

Client has consented to another type of use, as well as for the purpose of invoicing and remuneration.

The Client authorises IDG Media to acquire, process, store and use its personal data within the

scope of the order placing and processing insofar as this is necessary to carry out the placement

of the advertisement and the respective invoicing. IDG Media is furthermore authorised to access

the personal data relinquished to it for the maintenance of its working condition. To this extent

IDG Media guarantees that it will treat the data relinquished to it as confidential.

The Client may at any time view free of charge its personal data stored with IDG Media. The Client

may address an inquiry in writing to IDG Media for this purpose.

Within the purview of the statutory data protection regulations IDG Media undertakes to use the

Client’s data known to it from the mandate relationship, unless the Client has consented otherwise

to IDG Media making further use of these data, exclusively for the fulfilment of the purposes of these

General Terms of Business, to preserve the confidentiality of the data and to enjoin its employees to

observe the same secrecy in accordance with the legal requirements.

15. Granting and warranty of rights. In placing the order the Client gives its guarantee and

assurance that it is the unqualified holder of all exploitation rights in the advertisements that are

required for the placement of the advertisement. The Client shall to this extent indemnify IDG Media

against any and all claims of third parties that may arise from the violation of legal regulations. In

cases of dispute the Client undertakes to indemnify IDG Media from the costs of a necessary legal

defence and to support it with all necessary information and documents in a legal defence with

respect to third parties.

16. Place of jurisdiction and applicable law. The place of jurisdiction and performance shall

be Munich, where IDG Media is domiciled, if the Client is a qualified businessman, if it has no

general place of jurisdiction in Germany, it has moved its place of domicile or place of habitual

residence after conclusion of the Agreement to somewhere outside the territory covered by the law,

or if its place of domicile or place of habitual residence is not known at the time when legal proceedings

are instituted. Otherwise the general place of jurisdiction of the Client shall apply. The laws

of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply to the exclusion of UN purchase law (CISG).

17. Final provisions. All information, consents, communications or inquiries about these Terms

of Business are binding only in writing. Dispatch by e-mail is equivalent to the written form. In the

case of dispatch by fax or e-mail the date when this is received by the other partner respectively is


The General Terms of Business and any other written agreements will retain their validity, even if any

individual provisions should prove to be invalid. The provision in question shall then be construed in

such a manner as to achieve as far as possible its originally intended commercial and legal objectives.
