IT heads have to be innovators…

IT heads have to be innovators…

The business environment today is very dynamic, and IT is expected to keep pace with the demands of customers and users. By looking at technology as the solution, and not a problem, CIOs can handle business demands in a way that creates a great user experience in a manageable, secure and cost-effective manner. CIOs must articulate the current business challenges; understand the company, its competition and the industry.

By bringing the element of innovation, CIOs, as technology leaders, can drive and understand what their peers in the C-Suite are aiming to achieve, and focus on an IT infrastructure that complements their vision. Johan Rydell, CTO at Nevales Networks has expresses his views. According to him, “An IT head is an innovator in the first place, in fact a collaborative innovator who values teamwork; he understands the internal process and thinks differently to create a competitive edge via teamwork and collaboration; while on the other hand, he is expected to understand the customer’s pain points and ease the pain point accordingly and meet their requirements. The bottom line is to ensure that technology or processes should bring in the right ROI.”

From the days when CIO had limited system storage and controlled information generation, to a time where all business processes are using some sort of Information System, the challenge has grown stronger. The reason being the increasing volume of information that is now being generated and processed within a company, and from external entities like suppliers, partners, customers, etc.

The good and bad thing about business dynamics keeps evolving constantly. However, the internet and now the mobile revolution have made this evolution much faster than can be kept pace with using traditional approaches and tools.

With the emergence numerous innovative various devices, services and the ways of consumerization of IT, Data Security has become even more vital. Usage of portable devices including storage devices, thumb drives, tablets, smartphones and social media create lots of openings for information leaks……See More
