    Found a few other great quotes on what a CIO is:

    CIO Advice Column:

    “The future CIO’s primary focus is to drive business strategy and innovation for competitive advantage. They will apply their unique cross-enterprise view of business process, architecture and the differentiating potential of technology to steer the enterprise toward new opportunity. Rather than answering primarily to internal stakeholders, future-state CIOs will be accountable to the board and to shareholders. They will be the right hand of the CEO because their unique knowledge and perspective will be critical to a 21st Century enterprise’s ability to grow."

    Excellent Post Eric,

    I have been long confused about what exactly a CIO's role is. Your posting has given me clarity. Its a very good read. I am going thru your blog page by page and it takes time for me coz there is a lot of information thats very useful. I work in the same environment i.e., online retail (online marketing) we are an offshore company that provides services to companies. I have already bookmarked your site and i feel this is a dictionary, a guide and a repository of useful information. my contact email is maran4u@gmail.com. It would be a previledge to be in touch with you.

  4. New Job & Title: E-Business Manager » negate.net

    [...] On November 27th, my new role in the organization (yes, I’m still employed by Newell Rubbermaid!) was announced although I’d been unofficially been performing tasks within the new role since November 1st.

This serves as another step in the direction of heading down a career path towards a CIO position (what’s a CIO?). [...]
