Responsibilities of the CIO
CIO needs to balance between the technology implementation costs v/s the benefits of the organization. Whichever solution is planned, CIO has to look for the value which will be brought in by that solution. Now-a-days business is looking at IT as a business enabler and expecting support like machine integration, various digital platforms like online sales platforms, Big Data and Analytics. CIO has to evaluate the solutions, find out the value and implement the emerging technologies.

 

Key priorities for 2021
CIO responsibilities are increasing exponentially. Business is more demanding and digitalization is the key. Though CIOs are creating a technology roadmap to take the business to the next level, the support from CEOs and current market situation is blocking the progress of digitalization projects.

 

Adopting Work-From Anywhere
Fortunately we had remote working infrastructure ready before COVID-19. A small effort of configuration and security enhancement enabled us to start work from home.

 

Redesigning IT & Security strategy
Emerging technologies will bring in new vulnerabilities. So due diligence is of very much importance. Any new technology be it a cloud computing or smartphone or new infrastructure must be thoroughly evaluated in terms of security. User awareness is again a key aspect which needs to be brought into the organization culture. A periodic review of security posture is a must. Apart from internal reviews, external audits need to be planned.
