IDG Contributor Network: Should CIOs be more open to playing in someone else’s digital sandbox?
In previous articles I’ve discussed how CIOs have an evolving role in today’s market. The time and innovation demands are stretching CIOs thin.
Traditionally, CIOs have enjoyed tight control over their processes. Everything from the hardware (server stacks, access points, etc.) to the teams that keep the technological foundation of their company operating were tightly controlled and managed internally.
The challenge with a tightly controlled, in-house solution for large-scale organizations is that the rate of innovation is demanding a more diverse working group – more diverse than can be achieved internally in a cost-effective way.
