In the beginning of the 1980s, no one had a computer on their desk, and technology management strategies focused on data processing. By the end of the decade, every white-collar worker had a personal computer connected to a network, and the scope of managing technology radically changed into creating and maintaining these information systems for a company. The same seismic shift in the sophistication and job description of the modern-day CIO is happening right now, and The CEO of Technology is the must-have roadmap for every young CIO and IT executive who wants a solid game plan for staying out in front of the new age of digital transformation. In this clarifying resource for a volatile marketplace, longtime pioneer of IT leadership Hunter Muller asks his extensive global network of top executives about their biggest concerns and needs in IT, and how the new, emerging breed of CIO are meeting those challenges today and plan to in the future. In candid, interview-style coverage, you gain firsthand insight into the little-known opportunities where CIOs can transform a company and drive business value, as well as the hidden pitfalls of not growing, developing, and adopting new technologies.
