ExecutiveBiz Highlights Industry’s Brightest CIOs

ExecutiveBiz spoke with a few industry-leading CIOs about emerging trends and prevailing wisdom from BAE Systems’ Bob Fecteau and TASC’s Barbie Bigelow.

“The CIO of today must answer to a multitude of additional stakeholders: the board, shareholders, trading customers, the business lines. And, more often than not, that answer must encompass a big picture view on everything from social media to supply chain management, cybersecurity to R&D investment.

None of this should come as a surprise to today’s CIO; unless you’re living on planet Zog, you know what you need to do. Harder is knowing how to realize what by now has become an endlessly repeated catchphrase: “business-IT alignment.”

Your journey to the ‘how’ begins here.”
