Don’t Get Caught Unprepared For This CIO Change

The new CIO reality is transitioning from the basement to the boardroom. Successful tech leaders will adapt to this new reality with a unified tech strategy to help marketing, sales, customer experience, digital, and product teams propel company growth — and accelerate innovation. Read our guide to prepare for the growth agenda mandate facing today’s CIOs.

Alignment Drives Growth

One of the keys to achieving customer obsession is steadfast alignment and shared accountability for business outcomes. Technology leaders have to build relationships across the organization and understand business goals; architecture and development teams must deliver the innovative experiences promised by the business; and security teams must ensure that all of the experiences are secure and don’t put customers or the brand at risk.

Regardless of where you sit in your company’s IT organization, you can play a vital role in powering growth. Forrester Decisions provides everything that your technology organization needs to make bold decisions that power innovation and drive growth.
