Every Business Leader Needs a CIO

EVERY business is a technology business in the 2020s, whether we like it or not.  And even the most technical CEOs need executive level support to make strategic technology investments that drive better outcomes for the business.

1. Innovation & Value Creation

Successful leaders find it difficult to stay successful without innovating. This is particularly true when the playing field is constantly changing. As of March 2020, even the most manual analog businesses are using technology to enable contactless payments. New rules call for new solutions to old problems. New challenges call for new solutions altogether. Successful leaders know that leveraging technology to find innovative ways to create value for customers is a critical success factor.

2. Efficient Business Operations

Successful business leaders are responsible for the bottom line growth. Exploiting technology to create efficiencies in business operations can not only support bottom-line growth, but it can support top-line growth as well.

3. protect & Defend

In this modern era, normal business operations produce data and metadata. This data and other corporate assets are targets for theft, ransom, and other threats. Successful business leaders are responsible for protecting and defending company assets and employees.
