2021: The Year of the CIO – Scale, Speed, Security

Whether transforming how we interact, reshaping entire industries, or accelerating previous business trends, the global pandemic reshaped the work world for us all. Things changed more for some than others. This past year, IT was trusted to keep organisations afloat by enabling and empowering a remote workforce, coping with a seismic shift in customer behaviour, and ensuring resilience and security remained at the forefront of every decision. Along the way, the role of the CIO was refashioned. 

For some CIOs this meant turbo-charging an existing strategy, but for others it brought the unique opportunity of a fresh approach. Whatever the case, on top of technical expertise, CIOs are increasingly influential in determining core business strategy.

According to 89% of respondents to IDG’s global survey, the CIO is now “the principal champion of digital transformation efforts.”

For three months during the initial phases of the pandemic, CIOs spent $15 billion a week to deal with the shutdown, A staggering eighty percent of CIOs surveyed said they implemented new technology and IT strategy as a direct result of the pandemic. 

In this exclusive roundtable we explore the permanent impact of disruptive change, including:: 

  • Cloud strategies for operational resilience, or “don’t get locked out of the basement”.
  • The evolved relationship between the CIO and CMO in delivering digital customer experience excellence
  • Headless experience on the edge as a competitive differentiator
  • Trust as currency
