(Episode 379; 10 minutes 26) The role of the CIO is going through a transformation. Although many come through the traditional technology route, many are now coming from other parts of the business. The IT strategy is also being heavily influenced by the CFO.

These changes are being driven a lot by cloud-style services and a reducing reliance on in-house infrastructure. On today's BTalk Australia, to find out more about how this is transforming decision making within a business I talk to Chris Morris from IDC Asia Pacific and Ray McQuillan from Verizon Business.

What do you think are the ideal attributes for a CIO? Add your thoughts in the Talkback section at the end of this post.
