The Evolving role of CIO

In the last few years, the role of CIO has changed and evolved, and with that change comes the streamlining of the skill-set of  IT team members who keep IT operations up and running.

Today’s CIO has become more multi-faceted and the job is no longer just about maintaining the company’s IT infrastructure but also of keeping all of the processes operating to meet the demands of their employee and client base.

Numerous factors in today’s environment are driving the evolution of the CIO role:

  • Strategic planning and decision making is required to capitalize on the strategic benefits of IT
  • Technology now supports the entire business, and the CIO needs to align IT with Business
  • Rapid market changes, competition and globalization demands agility of IT to support back-end processes
  • Security, compliance, and risk-management issues increasingly dominate the CIO’s tasks.
  • Pressure of to pursuing new initiatives with budgets limitations

The demands of the role have always been associated with revitalizing IT infrastructures on a restricted budget  and in today’s competitive business environment, the CIO is required to have insights into a whole range of processes including strategic planning, business development, sales, marketing and products launches.
