While some businesses might question what place a CIO may have in their new changing work environment, the position is still as important as ever. Despite some differences in responsibility, much of the work, in fact, remains similar. With companies moving to the cloud in order to reduce IT costs, the new role of CIO is still very important and hands-on.
There are several different ways a company may move to the cloud. It can simply mean that a company has chosen to move their custom applications from on premise data centers to an off premise data center. Alternatively, in some cases, you may see custom applications being completely replaced with SaaS applications, where service providers make applications available to a company through online means.
As the cloud takes over and a new technology age emerges, some changes to the role of CIO may include:
Change can be daunting for any company. Switching over to the cloud will lead to changes in business process and a CIO is integral in insuring that a company continues to run smoothly in the midst of evolution. Users’ needs can be met with less expensive resources, which the CIO will use to manage the flow of requests from vendors. The smooth management of change is a key part of moving a company’s IT to the cloud.
