CIOs as "Chief Instrument Officer": Three Aspects to Run IT with Digital Balance? Organizations large and small are heading to digital transformation; IT has been pushed out of its comfort zone as back office and become a frontrunner in such a business transformation. Thus, IT cannot just keep “We always do things like that” mentality, and explore the new possibilities.
