Technology is at the heart of almost every business transaction today and continues to evolve at a staggeringly rapid pace. For enterprise CIOs, it's an exciting time, witnessing first-hand the profound impact smart-technology decisions can have on business and its customers. With each technology change and new application comes greater possibilities for how IT can deliver value to the broader organization.

However, this transformation to a "digital enterprise" is not without its challenges. Many CIOs are enthused by the potential of the Internet of Things, Big Data, and cloud computing, but are uncertain as to whether or not they are prepared to maintain an IT workforce with all the necessary skills to support it.

In this slideshow, Charles Galda, CIO, Technology Centers and Services, GE Capital, outlines five steps that CIOs can take to bridge the IT skills gap and make sure their workforce is poised for success in the rapidly changing enterprise.
