Existing disruptive technologies should not be considered a destination but rather a foundation for further emerging and maturing ideas.

Roderick Lappin, Senior Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing, Data Center Group, Lenovo, talks about how CIOs need to master five critical roles to help their organization raise the game on using new technologies for competitive advantage.

Key Takeaways:

  • Technologies, such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and cryptocurrencies are new sources of disruption
  • CIOs now need to focus 80% of their time on the business of IT and only 20% on IT operations
  • Making IT a desirable brand and taking a forward looking approach will result in disciplined innovation
