Top 79 Chief Technology Officers

Featuring the brightest and most innovative Chief Technology Officers today.
Our content team spent an entire month to create the list. We used a metric called True Reach, devised by Klear, to determine on average, how many people view a single post across all social media platforms. While that was our guiding metric, we also included overall influencer rating, total audience size, and engagement score, to paint a full picture of each of our influencers. We hope you find this document useful, and take heed to some of the messages that our influencers have taken to heart themselves.

Some more detail about how Planet Compliance compile the list:

The RegTech industry is buzzing: innovation has transformed how we use regulatory technology to deal with ever-increasing requirements and obligations from financial regulations. Who are the people though that move the sector, are the most active on social media channels, blogs and industry events? You know we love lists at PlanetCompliance, so we’ve put a list of people together we think are the key influencers in the field and know what they are talking about when it comes to RegTech. Our scoring algorithm considers the activity across the web and social media channels based on an individual’s Klout score that combines data, for example, from Facebook, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, and Wikipedia. The algorithm also considers other aspects like how often the individual is mentioned across the web and in the press. And, of course, there is a secret ingredient we’ve added.

Book Review – Be The Business: CIOs in the New Era of IT

Be The Business: CIOs in the New Era of ITAfter reviewing Martha Heller’s excellent last book, The CIO Paradox: Battling the Contradictions of IT Leadership back in 2012 I was delighted to be asked to review her new book entitled, Be The Business: CIOs in the New Era of IT.
The book rightly covers how technology now permeates nearly everything a company does and how regardless of industry, IT has moved much closer to (if not directly in) the revenue stream of the organisation.

Martha has an amazing network of CIOs and an innate knowledge of how their roles have evolved in the past 5 years including how many leading CIOs are dramatically re-conceptualising the role of IT and creating new IT operating models as a result. In keeping with this new era of IT, these new operating models distribute IT investment decisions, innovation, delivery, and adoption throughout the enterprise, rather than keeping those activities solely within the IT function.
Ultimately, these new IT operating models position the IT function as an internal professional services organisation that provides the company with a wide array of services including management consulting, customer experience, innovation, end-user productivity, and security.

I have long heralded the cause for CIOs to be more progressive and deeply involved in operating and driving the business forward; Actually being a part of the core team which leads and drives the business forward rather than being content just running the technology silo and ‘keeping the lights on.’ I have referred to this more commercially focused and digitally savvy role as CIO 2.0 with more focus on supporting the business, reinvigorating its use of technology, enhancing the customer experience, driving the digital initiative and enabling it to deliver its strategic growth objectives.

This book is full of practical and thought-provoking narrative on how CIOs can progress to the ‘2.0’ role in this new era of IT and each chapter resonates with illuminating quotes from leading CIOs who have been through this transition and which lend real world insight to Martha’s text.

Chapters such as Step in to the Digital Void, Turn IT Consumers in Co-investors and Becoming the ‘What’ CIO invigorate the mind and really help you shape your thoughts in to meaningful and effective strategic goals that you can carry forth in to your own organisations. This book is by no means an instructional guide on how to elevate yourself as a technology leader but gently steers you in to the key areas you need to consider, investigate and embrace to succeed in this new era of IT.

When digesting this book on first reading, it really resonated with me on how well it flowed and knitted together the journey to becoming a CIO 2.0.
On second reading, I did so with a highlighter pen and marked out large areas of text in each chapter from which I wanted to take time to further drill down in to.

I highly recommend this book and feel confident in saying that it will be a well-thumbed reference point for me that will stimulate my thoughts and interchanges with others for a long time to come.
