New Year's Resolutions For CIOs

The Cloud Is Key The cloud is becoming a key component in company success. In fact, a recent study from management-consulting firm Navint found that 80% of enterprise cloud users believe it gives their organization a “competitive advantage.” Keep that in mind as you consider cloud adoption or expansion in 2013.

It’s time for another year of new challenges and new decisions for CIOs. Over the last 12 months, things have changed rapidly in the enterprise world. Mobile products, like those from Apple and Samsung, have more and more made their way into the office. And surprisingly, companies that once stood above the fray in the corporate world, including Research In Motion and Microsoft, have slipped a bit. It’s a different world for CIOs.

With that in mind, it’s a good time to look ahead and discuss what will matter most to the average CIO over the next year. After all, it’s better to be prepared for those changes now rather than being unduly surprised later.
