Across sectors, firms engaged in manufacturing, in banking and finance, in travel and tourism, in health and social
services, in higher education, in government services, in transport and logistics, and in many other sectors, face a multitude of choices and challenges for keeping up-to-date with ICT applications, supply chain management and enterprise resource planning systems, and promoting cyber security.

The environments of business and government have become increasingly data-driven. In this context, organisations must undertake effective business re-engineering, ensure effective security measures and risk
management, and foster effective utilization of the Internet for marketing and electronic transactions. An increasingly mobile Internet means an increasingly mobile workforce, which may present an opportunity or a threat.

To manage these challenges, organisations appoint CIOs, who lead teams responsible for the strategy, design, procurement and operation of the ICT-enabled business. CIOs lead through strategic capability, technical knowledge, and excellent team-building.
