CIO Think Tank

Facilitating Technology-Enabled Business Transformation

The role of the modern CIO is more complex than it has ever been before, not just because the technology landscape has become more complex, but also because increasingly the CIO has had to become a business-focused executive, not just a technologist. Long have we talked about the CIO “getting a seat at the table” but modern businesses are now demanding that their technology impresario join them and leverage his deep and rich technical acumen to allow the organization as a whole to better position itself for market-place success. To be successful, CIOs need to invest in themselves, in their personnel, and in the right technologies to allow them to position the IT department to proactively address business needs as an innovator and driver, rather than order-taker and enabler.

Takeaways:

  • IT leadership can no longer be simply technology focused, but must instead take their visibility into business process and become business focused
  • A broader business-focus does not preclude maintaining technology excellence however and indeed may demand more of it than ever before
  • Success for CIOs will be measured not in how they can enable enterprise decisions, but in how they can drive growth

CIO Think Tank

The Rise of the Interconnection-Oriented Enterprise

As the pace of and demands on the modern enterprise increase, organizational leaders are being challenged to simultaneously deliver growth, speed, scale, and heightened levels of engagement. Traditional architecture simply doesn’t allow for the capacity to address the interconnectedness required between people, locations, clouds, and data to meet these demands. As a result, enterprises are left to pick between initiatives and goals, hoping that focus on one doesn’t too significantly compromise others, and that competitors aren’t able to find a way to short-circuit this disconnect and become dominant in the marketplace. To meet the demands of the modern workplace and the modern market place a new architecture, one that is interconnection-oriented is needed to facilitate information flow and expedite access to insight.

Takeaways:

  • People are more distributed than ever before and finding a way to connect them improves user experience and heightens engagement and execution while reducing cost and complexity
  • Every business is a global business these days challenged with operational efficiency issues, disconnected supply chains and patchwork security, all issues resolved by tight interconnection
  • The Cloud has become the new enterprise computing platform but as it becomes ever more prevalent hybrid and multi-cloud deployment become the norm obviating cloud benefits without tight interconnection
  • Siloed data already hamstrings enterprise growth by limiting access to essential information and projected data growth is only going to compound this issue unless information is more securely and reliably connected
