I think job one as you say in your first comment, Brian, is for the CIO " think and act more strategically about the customer experience." As for women as CIOs, let me put it more simply: we need more of them. As for younger millennial CIOs, evolution will take care of that. It's inevitable. Bottom line is the more good CIOs, the better an enterprise will do.
Our #CIOchat yesterday looked at security through the lens of recent credit card hacks via payment systems.
First the numbers: 23 participants spewing out 333 Tweets! We chat every Thursday 2-3 p.m. p.m. ET, hashtag #CIOchat .

“I want to do private cloud because I want to be more agile and because I want to be much more efficient at IT operations”.
Um. Private cloud will most certainly help you with the first objective – it will stand up development, test and production environments (i.e. server/storage/network and middleware and dev, test and production applications) much more quickly. And it will “cut IT out the loop” allowing users to have their requests actioned without humans holding up the process.
We in HP Software have created a new HP Software Cloud presentation. I"ve posted two versions. The first has a voiceover (only about 10 minutes). The second is a PDF created from showing the slides and the notes I created for each slide.
I was explaining to my teenage kids the other day what I did. I talked about how our
software products ensured that IT infrastructure was reliable. Blank look.
"What is IT infrastructure?", they asked. I said, "it's like the
power or water or sewage".
