As cloud grows, so does the role of the CIO
In conclusion, the role of the CIO is undergoing a radical transformation with the growth of cloud computing. Cloud has increased the speed and scalability of business transactions, allowing the organisation to do more in less time and cost. More importantly, it has enabled the CIO to drive efficiency, deliver insights and contribute to revenue growth through the use of technology.
This is just the beginning. Globally, all CIOs are requiring their cloud providers to provide even better performance, value and greater flexibility, in order to meet the challenges in an increasingly data-driven environment. With cloud computing becoming more integral to organisations, the role of the CIO grows ever more important in implementing technology solutions and strategies that meet the organisation's business objectives.
