It was amusing at first, but I later began to wonder if it was true. I quickly learned every good CIO must have a healthy dose of paranoia to be successful. Fast forward to today and many believe all CIO’s careers will soon be over. You can hardly attend a technology event, read an article, tweet or post without someone predicting “The Death of the CIO”.
THE CIO IS DEAD! The typical logic behind the demise of the CIO role is driven by the consumerization of technology and the multitude of cloud solutions now available. Business leaders argue: I no longer need a PC at my desk. I can buy my own tablet or smartphone and the apps I need at the touch of a button.
