    What is a CIO?

    A CIO, or Chief Information Officer, is a senior executive responsible for the overall management of an organization’s technology-related activities, as well as the effective use of information systems and technology to achieve business goals.

    The CIO is typically the highest-ranking executive in the technology department and may report directly to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in some organizations. The CIO is responsible for understanding the company’s technology needs and strategy, and making sure that the company’s technology infrastructure is adequate to meet those needs.

    The role of the CIO is critical to an organization as technology is increasingly used to drive efficiency and competitive advantage.
