Cloud computing and data analytics are two of the fastest-growing areas of IT today. They are expected to grow by 26 percent annually over the next five years, according to a new report, "Global Cloud Analytics Market 2015-2019," by Research and Markets. CIOs should be aware of why trends like these are taking hold and try to stay ahead of them, said Sunil Dixit, vice president of Marketing at Numerify. He points out that data analytics is driving organizations to better understand consumption patterns, customer acquisition, and various other factors believed to increase revenue, cut costs and boost customer loyalty, for example.

Dixit advises them to stay abreast of the changing technology landscape by innovating, automating, owning their company's data strategy, and communicating more effectively. Here are his tips for how IT leaders can transform their IT departments and work more efficiently with the business side of their enterprises.
