2017 CanadianCIO Census

Top ?

Taking the pulse of the CIO community

A CIO’s leadership skills are becoming just as important as their technological savvy.

For the first time, business innovation is one of the CIO’s top three day-to-day priorities. The report also found that customer expectations and the need to demonstrate innovation capabilities to both customers and employees were the main drivers of digital transformation efforts.

“It’s a good year to be a CIO in Canada,” adds Ron Babin, a Ryerson University business professor who helped draft the report. “Hiring expectations are strong, the cloud appears to have delivered on its initial promise and CIOs are gaining seniority as they stay in the position longer.”

The research was sponsored by CA Technologies

Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello, Montebello, Quebec

Set at a four-star resort in Montebello, Quebec, this year’s Summit theme was Innovation in an Instant. Sponsored by Cogeco Peer 1 and supported by the CIO Association of Canada, the Summit sessions explored the issues CIOs have identified most likely to impact their work: artificial intelligence and machine learning, big data, security, workplace leadership and digital transformation. The insights of the 30 CIOs in attendance will be documented and shared through articles, video interviews and a digital report created at the end of the session.
