CIOs as revolutionaries...I don't think so

Community Video by,

A Deloitte press release cited a survey of 1,000 CIOs where 10 percent said they view themselves as "revolutionary," ergo they should exert much more influence over how business is conducted. I think this is a stretch. Watch the video and find out why.

Revolutionary approaches take place when implementing "new" opportunities. There's too much risk involved to blow things up for the larger corporation. IT decisions may need to be made quicker, but the past is rarely "blown up". Success is about leveraging the investments of the past (modernizing legacy apps, implementing cloud pragmatically) for value in the future. Few CIOs will or should "rip and replace".
