CIO, a Thing of the Past?

CTOby Sheree Van Vreede (@rezlady)

While scouring Twitter today, I came across a tweet from @pcalento regarding the CIO title and whether it was becoming obsolete or evolving. He was asking what alternative title there might be to the CIO title.

A few suggestions were Chief Technology Officer, Chief Digital Officer, Chief Transformation Officer, and Chief Infrastructure Architect.

At the end of the day, is the title change really necessary or just fun with words?

We’d love to get your feedback on this, so please leave a comment. Do you think the CIO title is on its way out? And if so, what do you think will replace it, and why.
