"Unlike a CIO at a true start-up, which has a clean technology slate from which to build efficient IT systems, I inherited an eclectic mix of technology infrastructures that somehow had to be melded into a cohesive, state-of-the-art IT organization." –

Virgina Guthrie, former CIO, Dr Pepper Snapple Group (talking of the IT and Operations Simplification Program she ran at Dr Pepper)

Mapping Digitization’s Impact on Enterprises. And on CIOs.

Andrew McAfee, a cofounder of MIT’s Initiative on the​ Digital Economy and Principal Research Scientist at MIT Sloan School of Management, who studies how information technology changes enterprises, society and the economy, delves into the concepts behind his latest New York Times bestseller ‘The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies’.

He paints a vivid picture of what the future holds for CIOs. One critical change will be that the traditionally labor-intensive job of keeping technology up and running will become heavily automated. CIOs will have to evolve to the new role of a technology Sherpa, who guides and navigates enterprises on how technology is advancing, how it could change the company, how it could change competition and the industry.
