SOUND OFF: How is your CIO Role Changing?
For the last 30 years, the goals of IT have been efficiency, productivity and innovation, where the CIO’s role was to make everything faster, better, and cheaper. When businesses were run on spreadsheets, IT could put in a few software systems and deliver some pretty significant value. Along came ERP and CIOs got into project management, business process change and governance. Enter outsourcing, and CIOs put another arrow in their quiver. And now we have cloud, consumerization and mobility -- and a whole new crop of business demands.
Some CIOs I have spoken to lately are getting into product strategy and business model innovation, roles they have not played in the past.
What about you? In this new era of computing, how is your role changing?
