Think of Yourself as an Analyst, Not a Technologist

Simply put, most IT organizations (and CIOs) shouldn't be creating or even managing technologies. They should be evaluating them. Creating your own applications — or even maintaining your own data centers — can take up inordinate amounts of time and energy. Leveraging cloud services and third-party solutions allows IT groups to leverage their time and budgets better. To succeed, CIOs need to shift their mental frame of reference: their job is more to be an in-house analyst than the go-to-guy when things go wrong.

The role of the CIO and IT teams has changed dramatically. Traditionally, IT teams concentrated just on programming, infrastructure management and building applications from the ground up. Today, successful IT teams are the ones with a deep knowledge of how to take that expertise to drive the business forward. Every IT organization has the ability to make this transformation.

In this slideshow, SanDisk CIO and SVP Ravi Naik outlines critical issues CIOs need to address in six quick tips to get IT teams to the next level.
