WHAT DOES DIGITAL MEAN FOR YOU
The continuous form of disruption to existing (or new) business models, products, services or experiences, enabled by data and technology across the enterprise.
NAME 3 BEST PRACTICES FOR ALIGNING IT WITH NEW NORMAL BUSINESS DEMANDS?
In my view, IT is now an integral part of the business in most enterprises, there is no need to “align”. The key is for the CIO to understand and participate in business issues and plans, the business leaders will soon see the value of his / her advise. There is a huge mindset change for the CIO, from technology to business orientation.
WHAT IS THAT ONE KEY MESSAGE YOU WOULD LIKE TO GIVE TO IT VENDORS?
Be a long-term partner, get deeply involved in the issues faced by the CIO
