Today, CIOs are much more involved in developing business strategies, generating revenue and fostering partnerships. As such, recently VMware commissioned Forbes Insights to survey CIOs around the world and dive deeper into their evolving roles and new areas of focus.
We found that CIOs are growing their influence and impact across the enterprise, with a heavy focus on creating IT that inspires innovation across the organization. They’re also leading more initiatives and taking a larger part in developing corporate strategy.
To meet growing customer demands and innovate faster, most CIOs believe multi-cloud infrastructure is pivotal to success, particularly when it comes to business continuity.
Almost all CIOs surveyed expect to be using more than one cloud provider in the next five years, so it makes sense they’re also recognizing how critical it is to choose the right tools to support a multi-cloud strategy.
