COVID-19 didn’t spell doom and gloom for all CIOs. In fact, 68% agreed their technology infrastructure was prepared to handle employees working from home, according to a report from IDG. And things didn’t change from six month’s prior to COVID-19 when CIOs were asked to rate their CEO’s top priority: again, even during the pandemic, it was leading digital business/digital transformation initiatives.
The work’s not done, of course. The pandemic’s effects on the workplace will be long-lasting, and CIOs won’t be without their challenges, according to Prem Khatri, director of operations for Chetu who oversees his company’s software development.
