“Digitalization and technological innovation are changing the job of CIOs, where they are transitioning from delivery executive to business executive, from controlling cost and engineering processes, to driving revenue and exploiting data,” said Alessandro Porro, Senior Vice President, International Sales at Ipswitch. “Inevitably, the CIO’s role will extend beyond the traditional delivery roles to other areas of the business, such as innovation management and talent development. Ipswitch’s IT management solutions are playing a critical role in helping CIOs with this significant transition.”

According to a recent CIO survey by Gartner, 95 percent of CIOs expect their jobs to change or be remixed due to digitalization. While world-class IT delivery management is a given, it will take up less and less of the CIO’s time. CIOs believe that the two biggest transformations in the CIO role will be becoming a change leader, followed by assuming increased and broader responsibilities and capabilities. 

Ipswitch MOVEit is used by thousands of organizations worldwide to provide security, traceability and control over business critical-file transfer activities. Organizations rely on WhatsUp Gold to avoid network downtime by seeing developing issues before users report them.

This year’s event theme is, “CIO Leadership in the Era of Digital Disruption: Lead, Reimagine and Reinvent.” For more information, visit:
