Ninety-five percent of companies are now using the cloud in some way—and with the transition, some have hired chief integration officers to link cloud solutions with existing on-premise systems.
But does your company need to add this position in order to have a successful move to the cloud? Many experts say a chief information officer (CIO) with a strong vision toward integration can get the job done.
The rise of the chief integration officer is similar to that of the chief digital officer, said Matt Guarini, vice president and research director serving CIOs at Forrester. "If the CIO doesn't have the right skillset, a lot of times the CEO will look at creating a new role," Guarini said.
