CIO Practice Level 2: Certificate in Interdisciplinary Professional Practice: Disruptive Technologies and Digital Operations

This CIO Practice Level 2 Certificate course covers disruptive forces of technologies, enterprise resource planning systems, advancing digital benefits realisation, digital operations, and digital strategy and leadership.

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 utilisation 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.

The Wits CIO Practice Level 2 Certificate course, provided by the LINK Centre and its Wits University partner the Joburg Centre for Software Engineering (JCSE), consists of three months of study, including two classroom sessions (each lasting one week) and individual/group self-study via assignments. Both classroom sessions are now offered on an online-only basis.
