Business leaders around the world are looking ahead to the next wave of innovation and transformation and where the CIO Agenda fits into it. 2023 is set to be an exciting year for the ambitious CIO as new technologies and customer demands emerge, leaving plenty of opportunities for growth and transformation.
CIOs – Increasingly influential role in driving growth and transformation
The role of the CIO is constantly evolving, making it a key force in helping organizations navigate their growth paths. In the coming years, CIOs are set to become more influential than ever, as leaders in their domain and stewards of the long-term growth and success of their organizations.
CIOs will be expected to drive technology transformations and adopt innovative solutions to meet customer demands and remain competitive in their markets. They will also be responsible for strategizing, budgeting and executing on projects throughout the organization.
Key Focus Areas for 2023
As the CIO takes on an increasingly important role in driving growth and transformation, the focus areas are still the same for 2023:
- Customer Experience (CX): With customer experience becoming an increasingly integral part of the customer journey, CIOs will have to focus on creating seamless experiences through the expertise of their teams.
- Data and Analytics: As data becomes more embedded in the traditional way of doing business, CIOs will be expected to ensure the collection, storage and analysis of data follows stringent standards. This includes developing complementary data governance and security practices.
- Cloud Migration: Cloud migration continues to be a major focus in the CIO agenda. CIOs will be tasked with developing comprehensive cloud strategies, working with the right cloud partners and migrating to the cloud with minimal disruption.
- RPA/Skills Infrastructure: CIOs must have the expertise in both robotic process automation (RPA) and digital skills development. It will be their responsibility to identify opportunities for cost savings and innovation through automation, as well as creating an environment for nurturing IT talent.
Humor aside – CIOs are all set for 2023!
So there you have it, CIOs around the world are ready for the challenge that 2023 brings and set for success, unless the world is suddenly taken over by robots – in which case, you’ll find us all in the bunker!
