Information technology as entrepreneurial value creation
Digitisation has a fundamental impact on businesses. CIOs are challenged to enable digital business models, to automate processes, to make data optimally usable, and to make the organization and developments more agile. At the same time, they must have the increasing cyber security risks under control. New technologies such as IoT or 5G open up completely new opportunities for companies. This has a massive impact on the orientation of the IT organization.
Information technology is a central and indispensable part of corporate value creation. With increasing digitalization, the importance of information technologies for companies continues to grow. Today's CIO has business responsibility. This not only requires close cooperation with the individual departments, but also a holistic view of the company and its processes. To achieve this, IT must redefine its role in the company, accompany innovations and drive them forward. A cost-efficient and timely provision of the required IT infrastructures and applications as well as the integration of new, innovative technologies requires not only a high level of professional competence but also extensive experience. To this end, new skills and abilities must be developed within IT. The necessary transformation of existing structures into the new operating model is demanding.
At the same time, the implementation of the digital transformation requires a sophisticated transformation of the company's IT
