For years the role of the CIO has changed. As IT has gone through the Main Frame era, Distributed era, Web era and now the Cloud era, the role continues to change. What does the role of the CIO today and in the future look like? Will it be more business driven where the CIO has real good understanding of what the business needs and creates solutions to address business problems, or is the CIO going to be the Technology specialist who understands all the new technology that is available and how to use it within their organization or is their role going to be more about knowing the desired business outcomes and is knowledgeable of all the resources required and plays a role in bringing together all the resources to facilitate the business outcomes. Or perhaps the role now is managing performance of external suppliers. All are valid questions. This panel session will call upon the expertise of 2 industry CIO's to provide their perspective of the role of the CIO today and in the future.
