"The evolution of the CIO role continues at a heightened pace to match the growing convergence of technology trends. The imperative is for the C-suite to shift to what the CIO Executive Council calls the ‘D-suite’. Essentially, this refers to traditional C-suites remodelling or refining themselves to become digital savvy C-suites or D-Suites. To succeed in this transformation, as the CIO Executive Council points out, there has to be a pathfinder or champion, a role CIOs can take on in the months ahead."
