- ClicktoTweet – Over 40% of LOB Executives see the CIO as Innovation Officer responsible for leading DX, according to IDC Survey
"CIOs who stay operational will find themselves further marginalized over the next three years. For these executives to stay relevant, they must shift their focus to transformation and innovation and incorporating those innovations into their stable infrastructures. 'Just keeping the lights on' will lead the business to find other sources for technology leadership and innovation," said Mike Jennett , Vice President of Research for Enterprise Mobility in IDC's IT Executive Program .
To help CIOs partner with and further educate the business, IDC has introduced the Leading in 3D framework that enables CIOs to be directly engaged in every phase of business Digital Transformation – from innovation to service delivery, with a special focus on IT's ability to manage the transition from one to the other. IDC predicts that through 2018, two-thirds of CIOs will have embraced Leading in 3D, which requires them to simultaneously innovate, integrate, and incorporate:
- Innovate within a cross-functional partnership to create digital innovations
- Integrate new technology platforms into stable business services
- Incorporate new skills, techniques, and culture into the fabric of the IT organization
"Our research notes a fundamental shift in the role of CIOs as seen by themselves and the business because of the 3rd Platform and digital transformation. While many CIOs have embraced this change, there is still a large percentage that will benefit from evaluating their organizations as well as their relationship with their business counterparts as they continue on this journey," concluded. Jennett.
