The Role of the CIO or IT Executive
Chief information officers (CIOs) and IT directors need to keep the enterprise operating in a secure manner while also helping the enterprise go digital. The challenge is to leverage technologies that can automate legacy processes or reinvent them in a completely new digital approach.
Our research for CIOs and their teams is focused on providing insights on trends in emerging technologies and the best practices of how to put them to work in the digital business era. Some of the key issues we address include:

- How should enterprises balance new best-of-breed applications versus platforms offered by large technology providers?
