CIOs: The new Focal Point for Innovation?

In the new age of technological innovation, enterprise IT has evolved from cost centre to service provider and revenue enabler. The CIO is becoming a key strategic player in a world where business success increasingly depends on rapid adoption and deployment of new technology.

But this is not technology for its own sake. Organizations are looking for agility and new capabilities to deliver an outstanding customer experience. A big part of CIOs leading the charge is their ability and authority to articulate clearly how their initiatives are aligned and enabling business. As the new focal point for innovation, CIOs must understand in depth all business drivers, threats, and opportunities, and see all connections in between.

To that end, ITWC has launched its 6th annual CanadianCIO Census to explore all aspects of CIO thought and action — from spending and hiring to the issues that are going to have the deepest impact on business in the coming years. It may take 20 minutes to complete, but it’s the only research of its kind focused on the Canadian CIO.
