Responsibilities of the CIO
CIO was always a business leader who had to keep business in front while making any decisions on technology, I believe the CIO is the most equipped among other CXOs because of the visibility they have across the functions to drive the digital strategy.

 

Key priorities for 2021
The role of the CIO in the journey of doing digital to being digital is crucial as he works closely with the rest of the organization in putting together a roadmap to accelerate the architecting and deployment of the digital platforms and solutions. Further, the CIO like the other CXOs will also play a key role in driving the change management and process re-engineering.

 

Adopting Work-From Anywhere
Our investments in collaboration tools in early 2019 helped us during the pandemic to get our employees to seamlessly transition to remote working. However our frontline employees working at the hospitals and clinics had to be at the units to take care of the patients. This team was empowered with solutions like Remote ICU, Remote care solutions and VPN based access to on premise hospital information systems.

 

Redesigning IT & Security strategy
The Information Security posture is too critical and more important than ever; the pandemic and the resultant remote working or work from home have moved all of us into a perimeter-less networking environment where the end point security is no doubt the first and last line of defense. While continuing to invest in solutions and tools to strengthen the end point security organizations must also continue to spread the awareness among the users and have third party assessments of the security landscape periodically.

 

Agenda of 2021
If 2020 has accelerated the Digital transformation for the organizations, I believe 2021 will further accelerate the transformation and organizations will have a plan to be a digital company in the coming years running up to 2025. Any organization who does not have an aggressive plan will have a tough time surviving the coming five years.
