CIO Leaders Summit
Senior technology executives are being pressured by both vendor pitches and internal management requirements to cut cost in their journey to adopt cloud computing, a group of chief information officers (CIOs) said last week. Edwin Yapp reports.
Although companies and organisations are already using analytics – some to such an extent that they can use weather patterns to help improve customers’ overall Internet experience – chief information officers (CIOs) in Malaysia believe more can be done to harness its full potential.
While many CIOs understand the importance of having some form of an Enterprise Architecture framework in their organisation, the adoption level remains low, according to panellists at the CIO Leaders Summit in KL.
The notion of a ‘next generation CIO’ may make for an evergreen keynote topic, but there hasn’t really been a fundamental shakedown of the core role, according to SingTel group chief information officer Choy Peng Wu.
Current technology megatrends such as mobility, social media, cloud computing and big data require a new paradigm in IT operations and CIO thinking.
