Will the CIO remain the guardian and custodian of IT and the top service provider in the company? Or is he changing into a protagonist for growth and transformation that would be inconceivable without digitization?
It is said that CIOs are increasingly understood and deployed as strategic consultants for secure digital transformation. But who sees him like that: the business, the CEO or himself?
For Rainer Peters, Vice President and General Manager of HPE Pointnext Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Russia, and HPE sponsor of the CIOmoves, more and more CIOs are now involved in valuable projects with their customers, both internally and externally. In doing so, they are promoting the changing landscape, driven by mature offerings such as Public Cloud and new hybrid cloud delivery models with new financing models such as OPEX based on local offerings. „In my experience, the role of the CIO is changing rapidly.“
On CIOmove@BASF Rainer demands new ways of thinking for CIOs and an expanded set of capabilities, like data ownership and security from the CIOs and a clear plus in skills to do justice to this change of role.
What do you think about it? At what stage of your own transformation do you see yourself? We are looking forward to the discussion about this – at the latest in the context of the CIOmoves 2020 in Moscow!
