BUSINESS STRATEGY KEY FOR CIO

A recent Deloitte survey confirms that CIOs now have the opportunity to drive business strategy in a way that has not been possible before. The survey identified their biggest gap as the ability to influence internal stakeholders, manage talent in their teams and provide the company with technology vision and leadership.

Smart ICT looks at a customer environment holistically and provides real-time enterprise visibility and analytics that business management can utilise and interpret.

In this article:

  • CIOs identify analytics, business intelligenceand digital as the top three technologies that will affect their organisations over the next two years.
  • CIOs need to look out to the horizon, see what technologies are influencing their business and their industry, and spend time investing in those.
  • CIOs spend just 16% of their budgets on exploiting new technology, compared with 57% on operations, even though they regard innovation as more important.
  • Plus, compared to two years ago, the majority feel that their power and influence are increasing, and more believe they are trusted allies and partners of the CEO.
