Gartner vice-president and fellow Dave Aron has some advice for CIOs and how they can make their jobs a little easier:

"Free up time through delegation and more aggressive prioritisation, and use that time to influence and increase enterprise digital savvy, and build stakeholder power.
"If CIOs don’t make significant progress now, they will fall under the digital bus. This is not simply a matter of being a more efficient and effective IT leader. It means stepping up to the plate in digital business leadership, recognizing this as a team sport and bringing the business leadership and the IT team with you."
