‘Balancing things for a CIO is an art’ 

Commitment as a Tech Head  
A role of CIO/CTO is not confined to computers nowadays; the vast knowledge acquired with time spent with man and machines are to be applied taking in view the business objectives. Technology is what drives business nowadays; we have to be multi talented, more focused towards objectives and threats of businesses in large. 


Experience Cell
In seeing from today’s market scenario, a CIO does not have to have that big technical knowledge. It can be an MBA too with basic knowledge of handling work pressures. Technology skill and mindset can be hired but if he is a master in blending and handling Man and Machine well. Whenever you go for best in technology or mindset in hiring people always remember the thumb rule that quality never comes cheap and mindset and skill do get polished with time. How to balance things as a CIO well is an art; we follow a rule of wait and watch in implementing technology and in infusing new knowledge. Technology changes in an eye’s blink and if all technological improvements or implementation are not industry specific, then it would not fetch the desired results. 


Key Priorities
 We don’t go for a leader’s approach in adopting any technology. Rather we wait, see, judge and then go for a need based investments always. Planning is a waste of time and we go for a need based approach at our front; no doubt planning is done in allocating a reserve fund for upcoming tech needs. 


Adaptability to Organizational Changes
 IT is in the blood of an organization. As a CIO or as CTO flexibility, agility, scalability and fast action is the key to success. It is not that you have to adopt the latest in the quickest possible manner but what is needed is how must is the tech and when on time is it needed. 


Investment Plans for FY 18-19
We don’t map things in figures but yes we will be allocating a reserve fund of 20% of profits for IT this year.
