Q: Should CIOs help their CEOs to “speak geek”?
A: No! Something is bass-ackwards here. The CEO should not care (nor should the CIO, actually) what language, stack, framework they use to achieve a business function. Ruby on Rails could be a roller derby queen as far as the CEO cares. The IT “geek” world has created a Tower of Babel, and when the CEOs realize what they’ve been funding—the constant forced migrations, etc.—they’ll fire the entire bunch, from the CIO on down, and get everything as a service. CIOs had better speak “business” and not expect the CEO to speak “geek.”
