Panel Description:

Much has been said about the business implications of current IT trends like mobility, cloud, big data, etc. However, very little of substance is being discussed about their implications on IT leadership talent. Both existing and aspiring CIOs face a raft of new responsibilities and challenges, which require a different set of knowledge, skills and experiences to achieve success. No longer is the CIO merely responsible for ongoing business continuity, shared services, process reengineering and cost reduction efforts. Today, as organizational design and business operations become more virtual, and the line between personal and professional technologies blurs, CIOs must establish corporate governance, manage risk and security, and lead mobile, cross-generational, geographically- and culturally-diverse enterprises. Our discussion will answer a simple yet critical question: what distinguishes today’s best CIOs from the rest? Audience participation is encouraged.
