The rapid evolution and convergence of postdigital technologies (e.g., cloud, mobile, and social computing), advances in big-data-driven analytics, and the new normal mandate for maintaining data security and privacy in cloud-based environments are some of the changes that CIOs have to contend with and are able to leverage to deliver business value.

Read the field guide to practical IT strategy and planning

The structure of this year’s Compass is designed to reflect the “four faces” of today’s CIO as Operator, Technologist, Strategist, and Catalyst. The 21 articles contained have been grouped into chapters by the face that most closely associated with them and much like the first edition of the Compass, span a broad range of topics from innovative frameworks for IT Strategic Planning to pragmatic methodologies for structuring post-divestiture Transition Service Agreements. Whatever your topic of immediate interest, there is likely valuable information here that can augment and inform your thinking going forward.
