 Opening the door to the C-suite


The DNA of the CIO provides fresh insight into what it is to be a Chief Information Officer (CIO) today.


For many years, CIOs have been talking about becoming a true partner to the business and the executive management team.


But, as Ernsy & Young's report, The DNA of the CIO highlights, relatively few have broken out of their comfort zones to actually become one.  


The encouraging news is that many CIOs find the remit and responsibilities of their role hugely rewarding and enjoyable.


Nevertheless, many more will need to test the limits of their comfort zones in order to become a relevant partner to the business in the years ahead.  


The report is based on our survey of 301 senior IT professionals from Europe, North America, Asia, Latin America, Australia and South Africa. It also draws on in-depth interviews with a further 25 CIOs from these regions.
