CIO’s 18th annual State of the CIO(Chief Information officer) survey was conducted with the objective to better understand how the role of the CIO continues to evolve in today’s business climate and to help define the CIO agenda for 2019. The data this year found that CIOs are broadening their strategic role and collaboration with line of business (LOB) to ensure a smooth maturation of digital business transformation – whether it be leading DX initiatives or overseeing tasks that previously were not in their wheel house, such as data and analytics.
This infographic, based on the 2019 State of the CIO research, explores the CIO’s influence, their new responsibilities, and the challenges they expect to experience as their role and the tech landscape evolve. For example, 88% of CIOs say that they are more involved in leading digital transformation initiatives compared to their business counterparts.
