Thanks for posting this. We definitely experienced problems after the change was made; we see the following for any package we attempt to install from MRAN: > install.packages("aimPlot") Warning in install.packages : unable to access index for repository Line starting 'Documen ...' is malformed! Installing package into ‘/home/olyerickson/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/3.3’ (as ‘lib’ is unspecified) Error in install.packages : unknown input format

Scott, thanks again for the thoughtful posting! I think your post does a great job advocating the special contribution CMOs can make to organizations. In my mind Marketing's relationship with technology is perhaps the most dynamic in the organization; Marketing must constantly track, validate and adapt to emerging technology trends to ensure the mission of the Organization is executed. To put it bluntly, this is not something to be left to the CIO to accomplish on a part-time basis. I'm somewhat uncomfortable about the CIO "final say" assertion, because I believe the CIO serves the mission of the organization; in that way Marketing are the CIO's customers. Thus, I would argue that Marketing should have "final say" over the technologies they can best use to accomplish their goals; traditionally, Marketing has not had the built-in competence to make such decisions. In my view, the role of the CMO is to make Marketing an equal partner in technology implementation within the Organization, to better fulfill its mission.
