The role of the chief information officer, or CIO, has transformed. In the future, CIOs are likely to spend more time on using technology services to achieve business needs to meet business goals and to compete more effectively and respond to ever-changing market demands.
“It’s like when you build a house: you need plumbing, but once the house is built, you want to use it. You don’t want to worry about the pipes as they should be there doing their work by themselves,” explains David Tay, CIO of precision manufacturing company Beyonics. According to Tay, the role of the CIO today should be focused on how technology is used to make the business thrive and grow.
