MARVEL’S FIRST STRATEGIC IT PLAN COMES FROM SUPERPOWERED COLLABORATION
BETWEEN THE CIO AND THE LINES OF BUSINESS.
he drama of modern business
sometimes operates at comic
characters, heroic risks, struggles
for dominance, and sometimes even
crushing defeats. So it should come as
no surprise that Marvel Entertainment,
Inc.—the progenitor of Spider-Man, Iron
Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, and the
X-Men—has undergone its own dramatic
transformation over the past six years.
Nor is it surprising that Marvel has an IT
superhero operating behind the scenes of
the media conglomerate.
