Those young ones walking around with their heads buried in their smartphones and tablets? As in everybody in the up-and-coming business generation?
They'll render the chief information officer (CIO) role obsolete, the leader of an enterprise analytics software and solutions company told CMSWire.
"What was a CIO in the past?" asked ClickFox CEO Marco Pacelli. "A creator and an innovator who made information available to the business faster and more accurately. Well, now that is over, and an entire generation of extremely tech smart kids have grown up."
Yes, them. They may not be getting as much fresh air as their preceding business generations, but they are immersed in technology, almost by default.
"They are used to constant change, the next best thing and having all the information they want at their fingertips," Pacelli said. "The CIO is falling behind and can’t keep up with the demand. It will be all about the data."
