Technology connects us wherever we are in the world. It lets us access sales records at the touch of a button, drill into customer data within seconds and connect with customers when and where it matters most. But it doesn’t come without its risks – and nobody understands those better than the CIO.

They need to support growth in emerging economies and enable the business to react flexibly to real-world events and opportunities. And their job doesn’t stop there.
