Letter: There is more in tech world than IT

Regarding "CTOs should embrace, not eclipse, CIOs"

In my opinion, while there can be relationships between chief technology officers and chief information officers, I believe the purpose of a CTO is to tie all relevant technologies to the agency's mission. The technology could be mechanical, medical equipment, biologic, etc. To limit a CTO field of vision could be a tragic loss. I believe we are becoming too myopic in viewing the world of technology; there is more than information technology.
