The CIO could be gone in 5 years: Good news for Apple in business?

“A recent study of finance chiefs at over 200 companies revealed that one in six expect the job of CIO to be gone within five years. More than twice that many (40%) expected that IT will eventually be folded into the finance department,” Ryan Faas reports for Cult of Mac. “This highlights the impact of trends like BYOD, the consumerization of IT, and the growing importance of cloud services.”
“As IT departments struggle to deal with an ever-increasing influx of iPhones, iPads, Android devices, and other ‘consumer’ technologies, this raises big questions,” Faas reports. “Would handing management of IT over to a CFO with limited technical experience help or hinder Apple’s position as a business vendor? Would that drive BYOD programs or inhibit them? Would this ultimately be beneficial to most employees at a company?”
