The Future Role of the CIO

The CIO has always been a senior management role that executes the technology agenda set by the company's executive management team. But for years now, there have been discussions and expectations around how the role of the CIO is changing from an order taker, to having an equal seat at the table in the planning process. Today, the CIO role is not only catching up to those expectations, but revolutionizing how companies go about driving business value to their customers. Technology is no longer a support function within the company hierarchy, but the voice to and from the CEO.

In the future, many believe that CIOs will be compensated exclusively on revenue, and completely change the hiring practices within an organization. CIOs may primarily come up through the financial ranks. They hire non-technical managers from the business that will play more vendor manager roles ensuring ROI. The CIO technology agenda will drive the future business strategies. Will the CIO become the next CEO?

The NVTC Technology Innovations committee is hosting a discussion based around these shifting themes with some of the most talented CIOs in the industry. Join our esteemed panel of speakers as they share their views on the future role of the CIO. These technology and thought leaders will provide insight into where the top-ranked technology roles will be heading in the next five years.

All event attendees will be entered in a Verizon Wireless raffle to win a 4G LTE Verizon Jetpack.
