IT Leader – Manager First or Technologist First
See, be IT leader or HR leader or any other function leader,the ultimate goal of all is business. So, in my opinion, the IT Leader should have managerial skills as well as technical skills as the main task for him/her to align IT with business requirement. 

Latest Technology
Virtualization, Cloud Computing, Mobiles Apps.
Relationship Between CIOs and CEOs
Without support of Management or the in-charge of business, you cannot bring any change in the system.  So, your relation with CEO is very crucial.  The CEO should have trust/faith on you; you need to first win his/her confidence for your proposed changes.
Any Message
CIOs are doing a great job.  I would like to say Best of Luck! To everyone.
