Digital transformation is quickly changing the way businesses work. It is no longer just the marketing department's territory, but has seeped through to other branches like IT and operations — sparking significant changes in the way organizations hire, work and measure success.
We've long been talking about the tech talent shortage as an industry, but one theme that will quickly emerge from this slideshow is that there isn't a shortage as much as a need to reimagine traditional tech roles, matching them with emerging processes and trends. The more forward-looking organizations and CIOs are well on their way to accommodating this new paradigm — they have new (or no) job descriptions, they do things differently from their predecessors, and they have new goals and metrics. What's more, this trend will become more mainstream in 2016, causing CIOs to quickly become smarter with the concept of digital transformation and the changes it brings in its wake.
