The 2013 CIO Compass
A field guide to practical IT strategy and planning
The technology landscape has vastly changed since the release of the first edition of the “CIO Compass” in the Fall of 2011 and with it, the role of the CIO has become more critical and challenging. The rapid evolution and convergence of “postdigital” technologies (e.g., cloud, mobile and social computing), advances in “big-data”-driven analytics and the “new normal” mandate for maintaining data security and privacy in cloud-based environments are some of the changes that CIOs have to contend with and are able to leverage to deliver business value.
The structure of this year’s “Compass” is designed to reflect the “four faces” of today’s CIO as Operator, Technologist, Strategist and Catalyst. The 21 articles contained have been grouped into chapters by the “face” that most closely associated with them and much like the first edition of the “Compass”, span a broad range of topics from innovative frameworks for IT Strategic Planning to pragmatic methodologies for structuring post-divestiture Transition Service Agreements. Whatever your topic of immediate interest, there is likely valuable information here that can augment and inform your thinking going forward.
