CIOs evolve into cloud service brokers

By Alex Kayle, Senior portals journalist
Johannesburg, 23 May 2012

The rising adoption of cloud computing in the enterprise means the role of CIOs will become more relevant to an organisation as they become cloud service brokers and deliverers of technology.

This is the view of Fabio Violante, CTO of EMEA for BMC Software, who spoke during yesterday's BMC Day conference, hosted in partnership with ITWeb, at The Forum, in Bryanston.

Violante said: “2012 is going to be a challenging year from an economic and technology perspective. Our role as IT leaders will change, yet these challenges bring huge opportunities in cloud computing and software as a service (SaaS) as a new way of delivering IT and services.”
