Technology executives, especially CIOs, have gained in prominence in recent years. The best of them look beyond their department and realize they can be drivers of strategic change by virtue of their unique perch in the corporate structure. Whereas in the past IT departments were straightforward order-takers from their business counterparts, today IT operates as the central nervous system of corporations. The career path from CIO to CEO has emerged.
One of the advantages of midsize enterprises is that they can be more nimble than their larger competitors. Following this logic, they need to quickly identify ways to use IT to run, grow, and transform their organizations. Come to this session to understand what your options are based on Gartner's experience with thousands of clients large and small.
While many CIOs have had a great deal of training and experience on how to run a technology organization, many of them struggle with the “human” side of IT leadership. That is because, today we must be more than a utility provider of technology services.
IT must help drive new revenue streams, re-engineer how business is done in a global marketplace, and leverage technology to help develop brand and market presence.
A successful CIO must be a business leader who can help transform the enterprise by leveraging technology to drive business value.
