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.

The 6th annual CanadianCIO Census, sponsored by OutSystems, will be released soon. Why not join ITWC CIO Jim Love and Nuno Borges, Director, Customer Research, Outsystems, for a free one-hour webinar on Aug. 21 and get a first look at the results? As a thank you for attending, all webinar participants will get a copy of the full report.
