How CIO's Are Shaping The Cloud Space?

The digital companies are not limited to conventional methods

Cloud Space

Every person in a company’s hierarchy has his defined role, and the same goes for the CIO (Chief Information Officer). In one of the blog posts, Google Cloud Office of the CTO, Gregor Hohpe, put some more light on the same.

The role of CIO is way dynamic than we can ever think. The businesses are fast learning on how to deliver faster and at a lower cost. From digital disruption to rapid technology evolution, and from native data collection to the cloud platform, everything is taking a turn, and so does the CIOs responsibility.

Following are the major challenges that CIOs put up in their top agenda:

  • Security: No CEO wants to be in the news for a data breach or cyber attack. Among all of a CIO’s challenges, these have the potential to not only harm the business, but also to end your career almost immediately, perhaps even with legal implications. Above all, enterprise IT systems must be kept secure.

  • Uptime: Information technology looks good only if it is a success. Outages can also get you into the news, or at least annoy customers and cause you to miss out on revenue opportunities. And due to it, no CIO likes to be called in to discuss an outage.

  • Cost: While security and uptime are the primary drivers, IT is still a significant cost factor in most enterprises, sometimes running into the billions of dollars. “Doing more with less” is a common theme with many CIOs as they look to embrace new capabilities while at the same reducing operational expenses.

Moving to the other landscape of cloud platform, security and reliability make one set and cost vs. speed, automation, and feedback form the other. The cloud providers like Google successfully fend off cyber attacks on a daily basis, that their core services are almost perfectly reliable, and that they’re able to offer their services at a low price point suggests that there’s a connection here.

  • Security = Cloud speed + automation + feedback

  • Uptime = Cloud automation + feedback

  • Cost = Cloud automation + feedback

Every company strives for security, availability, and cost. However, digital companies using a cloud model have learned to achieve them using different mechanisms. By connecting the dots, enterprise IT leaders realize that as the external world changes, a cloud-oriented operating model is a natural way to achieve the key metrics expected from a CIO and their IT organization these days.
