Majority of the current class of CIO’s lack how to manage Data Security / Cyber Security. Have to depend on CISO’s  They  depend way too much on Legacy systems, and become legacy in IT strategies,  Industry needs new class of CIO’s who are a blend of CIO and CISO, until then there is no magic pill for current class of CIO’s to be successful in 2030 or beyond.

That’s a really interesting question. It depends a lot on sort of the type of organization you’re at. If you look at these big organizations with lots of legacy systems, the answers are really different to these little nimble startups that basically have no IT. For big organizations there’s this tremendous opportunity with all these new technologies in the cloud. The fact of the matter is most of us are sitting on a tremendous amount of legacy hardware and software that continues to generate technical debt. You have to constantly balance taking care of those things with being able to move forward.  You can’t stop supporting that legacy to move forward. So there’s this constant struggle for resources between your legacy systems and the new systems that you would like to implement or the modernization you’d even like to do to those systems. So balancing all that noise of new projects with what’s truly strategic is a huge challenge.
