Poll: Does Cloud Computing Change the Role of the CIO?

The software companies that have risen to power in the past 40 years are talking more about the cloud. That has to be a factor of the business market and the interest on behalf of top IT executives, the ones who have in large part commanded the budgets for large-scale solutions projects.

According to a study by IBM, 60% of Global CIOs are now preparing to invest in cloud computing, double the number of two years ago when IBM last did the study.

The poll asked 3000 CIOs about what their reasons are for adopting cloud computing. Many said it’s to help develop better insights and analysis.

That’s a logical goal for most organizations that face a sea of data but lack effective ways to gain value from it. The shift has an impact on the CIO who now has the chance to be a change agent more than just someone who acts in a support role.
