In the third in the series of our 2016 predictions, Paul Hammond, VP of Infrastructure Services at Capgemini, talks about the changing role of a CIO:

Paul Hammond“Maintaining and developing current infrastructure is a given for CIOs. However, in today’s world – where disruption to established business models is key to growth – they must embrace new technologies that meet and exceed rapidly changing customer expectations and market imperatives. From predictive analytics to intelligent sensors to the real-time connectivity of everything, the opportunity is there right now to embrace these technologies early and steal a march on competitors.

“At the moment, there are far too many CIOs existing solely to keep the lights on. In 2016, there will be a swing towards leaders who are not only good at cost reduction but can drive the digital transformation agenda.”

Here’s to a happy 2016!
