The Pivotal CIO: Today’s Transformer-in-Chief

You’ve got the most exciting,
challenging role in business.
We can help.

Digital Transformation Starts with You

‘Digital transformation’ sounds abstract. In reality nothing could be more real—or more important.
As a pivotal CIO, you’re driving critical enterprise initiatives that:

Power innovation

Creating opportunities from disruptive technologies instead of getting sidelined by them.

Modernize IT

Exploring hybrid architectures and cloud solutions to deliver data quickly and economically to the business.

Re-engineer processes

Automating as much as possible to free up valuable IT resources and deliver self-service solutions to the business.

Secure the business

Protecting intellectual property and customer data from overt breaches and inadvertent data proliferation.

Drive customer-centricity

Ensuring customer experience drives decisions because it’s become a competitive differentiator.

Oh, and keep the lights on

Meeting user expectations with up-to-date infrastructure, software, and systems and an always-on network.

And you’re doing it all against a complete disruption of business models, customer expectations,
go-to-market channels, and the enterprise tech stack as a whole.
These are exciting times indeed.

Data Is the Common Denominator

Every one of your major digital transformation initiatives depends on fast, secure access to trusted data:

  • Moving to the cloud
  • Harnessing big data
  • Powering IoT
  • Getting a single view of the customer
  • Innovating across the business

If you can access, integrate, clean, master, and analyze your enterprise data, these things get easier. If you can’t, your chance of failure increases dramatically.

Data Leverage: The New CIO Imperative

For the last decade, data has been an afterthought in far too many IT projects. That’s no longer sustainable.

Today’s most successful CIOs are those who insist on unleashing the power of their data as a strategic enterprise asset.

We call it 'data leverage'—maximizing the impact of enterprise data—and it’s driven by five big imperatives:

  1. Centralize data management: Stop considering data management a project-level issue. It’s an enterprise opportunity.
  2. Take a platform approach: Capitalize on modular and re-usable tech, skills, integrations, and knowledge.
  3. Think hybrid: Understand that your data is in the cloud. It’s also on-premises. It’s everywhere.
  4. Optimize for agility and governance: Fuel business and IT agility with effective data governance.
  5. Enable business self-service: Make sure data is everyone’s business.

A Platform Approach to Data Management


A comprehensive data management platform covers six areas–all sharing the same metadata–but built
in a modular way so you don't buy the whole thing up-front (just build as you go).
