Hear how Cloud technologies and Big Data are causing major changes to the CIO role.
Are Big Data and Cloud Services a threat to CIOs? In the past, CIOs have served primarily as custodians of IT infrastructure. Big Data – together with social, mobile, and Cloud (SOMOCO) computing – throws the value of legacy IT infrastructure into question and undermines the traditional authority of CIOs. For corporate CIOs, getting comfortable with IT infrastructure and services outside their four walls and raised floors, will require reaching beyond the traditional comfort zone of IT. It will require a multi-disciplinary approach including business management, math, and behavioral science with far less emphasis on traditional IT practices. And add to the mix, the mindset of a venture capitalist!
Understanding and preparing for the new roles and responsibilities of tomorrow’s CIO.
