2017 CanadianCIO Census

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

That’s one of the trends uncovered in CIO as Innovation and Transformation Leader, the report from the CanadianCIO Census 2017. 

As more business undergo digital transformation, CIOs are increasingly being tapped to help lead the initiatives, not simply to support them,” says Jim Love, ITWC’s CIO and the lead author of the CanadianCIO Census report for the past four years. “They are involved in more C-suite discussions, they expect to have bigger budgets, and they plan to spend more of that budget on innovation than in previous years.”

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

CanadianCIO Innovation Summit 2016

September 24 -26, 2016

J.W. Marriott : The Rosseau, Muskoka Resort & Spa

Set at a luxury resort in beautiful Muskoka, this year’s Summit focused on digital transformation and featured interactive sessions exploring the options available to CIOs to shape the future. Whether it was an engaging presentation on blockchain, an animated discussion about the talent deficit or an exploration of the connected world of the new digital customer, the 25 CIOs in attendance participated with gusto. The 2.5 day seminar may not have solved all the problem facing organizations girding for the coming digital transformation storm, but no one left without at least one actionable item and a new cadre of colleagues with whom they can now bounce ideas.

Please explore the stories, videos and photo galleries that document the Cogeco Peer 1 sponsored event. We look forward to building on the relationships created during the Summit to fuel inspired content and events throughout the year.
