Top 10 Strategic CIO Issues For 2015Posted on 04/17/2015
In what’s become an annual tradition, Oracle’s Bob Evans recently shared his list of the top 10 strategic CIO issues of 2015. It’s an excellent list, and in fact I grapple with each of the issues identified by Bob in my own job as CIO. Now it’s my turn to say a few things about the challenges and opportunities faced by CIOs today.
Bob refers to CIOs as being part business transformer, part customer advocate, part tech visionary, and part culture warrior. It’s true—we’re all of those things and, depending on the person and the company, maybe a few more. But regardless of which hat he or she wears, the CIO must be adept at understanding and responding to business requirements, executing on technology projects, and supporting customers in new and better ways.
