The purpose of this paper is to discuss the changing role of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) and illustrate how it now resonates with the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) role, especially in the public sector.
This paper identifies where and how this has developed in terms of the correlation between the skill sets of the two groups.
It is suggested that CIOs should rise to the challenge and aim for CEO positions in organisations.
The paper brings together some of the recent discussions within the business, computing and information management press on the role of the CIO and CEO, especially in the public sector.
