The Evolving Role of CIO in the Era of Digital Transformation

CIOs are managing changing expectations and growing complexity in their organizations. They are increasingly under pressure to manage performance demands, stabilize security structures, and create a cohesive data strategy. To achieve this, CIOs must create a holistic, strategic plan that engages people and enables technologies across the organization.

This infographic covers how the CIO role is shifting, growing in complexity and the barriers they are facing to success. The key points will help remove the barriers to success:

Standards and data management Operating under tried and true parameters allows you to build reliable architectures, free up people and resources to focus on innovation, and meet future business needs.

Business-first architecture ensures that the business strategy drives architecture rather than the other way around. Technology-driven architecture rarely meets business needs and timelines.

To support the creation of new revenue generation projects, CIOs are learning about customer needs, creating teams focused on innovation and creating business case scenarios with defined costs and benefits.


Future architecture strategies Understand the data's scope and nature to ensure that long-term security is addressed while working with flexible partners that allow you to scale pay structures based on computing capacity.

Interwoven architectural disciplines Understand the interplay between the business, information, systems, and technology architecture.
