They say it is the sexiest job in the 21st century in the world of Big Data – the Data Scientist. Emergence of new tools and techniques are empowering them to effectively glean the gold mine of information. Given the volume of data to be processed, it would almost seem like a job tailor-made for computers only. True, computers can certainly perform these computations … but can they think? Not as effectively as the human brain.

Almost a third of 738 executives, some CIOs, say top IT management should go. Another 13% blamed "non-IT executives" for IT failing to meet strategic albeit challenging objectives.

The imperatives include improving data analytics and business-IT interactions as well as adopting new approaches to development. At the same time, CIOs need to find better and more relevant talent while continually balancing conflicting priorities.
