A modern CIO mindset

Publish date:

The mindset of CIOs is shifting with the reality of a new digital future. It is legacy thinking that will be more damaging for businesses than old hardware. Modern CIOs are seeing the benefits of leveraging technology available as a service and being more flexible to respond to business needs.

Tom Gallagher, VP, Cloud Infrastructure Services, discusses the dilemma companies face when they have technology infrastructure assets on their books but need to get more value out of them. Companies need faster ways to work off the legacy assets and move to new technologies.

Technical debt impedes modernization

Companies have made technology infrastructure and legacy investments, but business is moving so quickly that they need to squeeze the most from their assets while moving forward.

The new IT infrastructure

Addressing technical debt means CFOs and CIOs need to work together to manage the financials while ensuring the company has the right IT infrastructure and assets to respond to the speed of the market with agility. Together, they need to make the right technology decisions to move their business forward.

Linking the CIO and CFO

CIOs and CFOs are inextricably linked and place importance on visibility and transparency as they make investments and achieve goals together.
