Bangalore: CIO being responsible solely for delivering reliable Information Technology (IT) to the business is history now. Contemporary CIOs stake a much broader and imperative role in the business, driving business transformation, innovating for competitive advantage and acting as key strategic partners to the CEO and formulating goals to the wider organization as a whole. This idea has been very skillfully compiled in the infographic by Wikibon.

The infographic revealed the top 3 priorities of CIOs, 3 essential qualities of CIOs and top 3 technologies for CIOs among others. Also, what was an intriguing aspect of the infographic was the fact that five women occupied among the top ten slots for the highest paid CIOs, notwithstanding the fact that only a mere 10 percent comprise at the Fortune 500.

Some of the other aspects that were highlighted in the infographic seemed to be related to Run the Business (RTB), Grow the business (GTB) and Transform the business (TTB) traits of a business.
