Fresh off the pandemic wave of digital innovation and elevated status, CIOs are swinging back to the fundamentals, with a heightened focus on security and improving IT operations as digital-first world is rapidly transforming business models across all key industries. While CIOs were the surprise pandemic hero and the force behind digital innovation, they will continue to stay focused on the fundamentals, from modernizing enterprise architecture to ensuring operations are agile, resilient, and secure.
