CIO Summit 2013
HighLights
 

·        While emerging technologies will impel innovation, enterprises will have to develop a comprehensive strategy around the manner in which they wish to organise their innovation as well as ways to achieve the best possible results, indicates a CII-PwC report on the need to run IT as a business.

·         Launched at the National CIO Forum held in Mumbai on 16 December 2013, the report—Running IT as a Business: Breaking boundaries with emerging technologies—is an attempt to look into the changing role of the chief information officer (CIO) as a strategist who helps drive innovation as well as business transformation, using IT as an enabler. This, in turn, leads to an analytical view on the “role emerging technologies can play in making organisations agile and adaptive within the current market scenario”, writes Debdas Sen, Regional Managing Partner (East) and Technology Consulting Leader, PwC India.

According to the report, with the advent of new mobile devices and platforms with advanced connectivity capabilities, accessing digital content has become convenient. The value drivers in business can now be achieved only by understanding the way in which a user needs data and the intended experience to be created for that user in that particular environment and device. Hence, social media, mobility, analytics and cloud (SMAC) along with the DevOps approach, and the advent of the internet of things (IoT) are providing solutions that are the need of the hour so as to connect better with customers and clients. Concepts such as big data can no longer be called a technology-driven change. Instead, it is now a business-driven approach facilitated by technology.

·         There is a strong need for innovation and an in-depth understanding of the processes involved. The whole process is based on keen listening and observation skills.  Inputs from listening and observing, along with a thorough knowledge of the transformational trends will play a key role in creating an innovative solution or product.

·        The convergence of the physical world with the digital world will put an emphasis on other parts of business and IT operations. In particular, it will increase the burden of data storage, tagging, management, and analysis and related activities. Solutions emerging from mobile and social technologies as well as big data analytics will address some of these issues.

·        And while harnessing the power of these emerging technologies, one has to also keep in mind the concept of enterprise data security. It is not just about securing data in the air, but also that which is on the devices such as smart phones, tablets, laptops, etc. Further, tight integration between big data and IoT will ensure that companies can avoid difficult situations which mostly occur due to the lack of information and the ability to predict the occurrence of an unforeseen event.

 
Description

Confederation of Indian Industry’s annual flagship event titled “CIO Summit 2013”with the theme’Running IT as a business’ took place on 16th December 2013 at Mumbai.

 

This CIO Summit 2013 explored and deliberated on how CIOs can leverage next generation technology to improve outreach, making CIO’s role more relevant to boardroom, technology enablement and using innovation for creating competitive advantage.

 

CIO’s role has changed. Today, increasingly, CEOs and Boards demand measurable value delivery from IT.

 

CIOs has made IT relevant to the company’s overall transformational strategy and lead from the front by implementing new technology and innovative ways to help create a competitive advantage.

 

CIOs are breaking out of the department mind-set and partnering with business unit leaders on customer-facing innovation and revenue generation. From a custodian of IT assets, they are set to become orchestrators of IT services that create business advantages. The need to run the IT department as a business, rather than a cost centre is a trend that we are seeing all around. The focus is moving towards value derived from IT, rather than the cost it incurs. Given this scenario, there is a growing need to understand the advantages emerging technologies bring for them; beyond technological innovations like social media, mobility, analytics and cloud computing.
