There's no doubt that CIOs now occupy one of the most important roles in the C-Suite. According to CIO magazine, 56% of CIOs report directly to the CEO. A big reason for this transition is an organization's growing focus on digital transformation and the means needed to drive a successful transformation.
Not surprisingly, over two-thirds of IT professionals increasingly view themselves as a strategic partner that can have a huge business influence. As the role of the CIO becomes more critical in an organization, CIOs are shifting towards collaboration with the technology executives who are hoping to maintain relevance by investing in more digital initiatives.
