Spotlight on CIO Strategies Spotlight on CIO Strategies

CIOs may have the toughest job in corporate Australia.

‘Keeping the lights on’ is no longer enough for many enterprises. CIOs are also responsible for building new, agile platforms, delivering innovative applications rapidly, helping to create new revenue streams and more – while at the same time finding cost efficiencies and locking down business data.

All this against a backdrop of rapidly changing business and IT environments.

How are CIOs adapting their strategies to deal with these changes and increasingly high expectations? What new strategies are they considering or adopting?

iTnews will provide some answers to these questions in this Spotlight, coinciding with the CIO Strategy Summit in Sydney starting on 8 September.

Special thanks to Veeam, which has come on board as the sponsor of this iTnews Spotlight.
