CIO 2028: Leading the Future

The rapid evolution of technology, changing business priorities, and global shift of power are compelling CIOs within the industry to reevaluate their IT Target Operating Model components. The way these components are prioritized today will be instrumental in shaping the role of CIOs in the future.

In cognizance of this shift, HCLTech, global technology service provider, and Institute of Information Management, University of St. Gallen is collaborating to capture the evolving components of IT target operating model and its impact on the role of CIO. This one-of-a-kind collaboration is aimed at throwing light on key business priorities for the CIO community and the competencies that would create resilient enterprises.

The program will follow a three-phased approach that will provide a networking platform for the leaders to capture their insights, document their findings, and disseminate the results.

Conceptualizing Ideas

The team will conduct a thorough investigation of the topic, gathering information through survey, reports, academic articles, and interviews with experts in the field.

The Technology and Innovation Conclave will be held thrice this year to effectively cover various elements and themes that influence the CIO role.
