2019 – THE YEAR OF THE CIO?

Is it every year that we hear this, or is 2019 going to be the one? Forrester Research has just released research to say 2019 is the year the executive in charge of the organisation’s IT strategy will take the reins. Not only that, they say 25% will expand their roles and responsibilities, while the rest will be relegated to other organisations. And top-performing firms will be searching for new CIOs next year.

“Arguably the most important outcome of 2019 is that leading CIOs will build a model that translates tech-led innovation into customer value.”

Interestingly, Forrester agrees that this would all require a business strategy that harnesses the value of a wide range of new technologies, and maximises the value and security of today’s environment.
