One question

Q: Is the CIO position facing elimination?

A: Whether the title [CIO] remains or not is beside the point. What is clear is that the role is fundamentally changing. … CIOs need to figure out how information technology can truly support the business in their quest for growth and innovation. … But in the meantime, the CIO is asked to maintain core delivery and operations within the budget and operating model established many years ago. They need to ensure the enterprise is secured from ever-more-sophisticated cyber crime, they have to maintain compliance, and they are expected to keep the plane flying.
