One question

Q: In the cloud era, are CIOs conductors or constructors?

A: Conductors, because they need to ensure that moving from the company's own IT services will not be compromised by moving to cloud. There are some systems/services which may need to be maintained in-house, and it is down to the CIO to ensure that the mix is right for the performance of the business.
