Modern CIOs are attempting to balance the legacy of yesterday with the demands of digital business in the twenty-first century, so what does that mean for the future of our CIOs? It means we should expect a CIO with an increasingly diverse, non-technical background who partners more with the broader business to deliver innovation and value.
In order for businesses to remain competitive in their ability to innovate, a CIO's ability to play a major role in partner and customer relations is a priority. Outstanding leadership and influencing skills will determine which CIOs are most successful in the future.
