Digital transformation storm during pandemic times is engulfing the companies in an unprecedented way generating new business models, new organization structures and new way of thinking the business processes. The deep penetration of Artificial Intelligence, the unstoppable migration to Cloud, the large adoption of AnalyticsBig Data and Internet of Things and 5G create a new ecosystem of business environment.

It is the time for the Chief Information Officers to regain their seats into the company Board, leading the Digital Transformation journey, becoming a proactive and strategic business partner, generating revenue and drive value. As companies invent new business models through digital transformation and bring new organizations to life, the CIOs tremendously modernize their traditional functions. The New CIO is visionary, a risk-taker, and inspires the C-suite and the employees, driving the company vision through technology.
