As the top of this organizational pyramid, the chief information officer's job is to make all of the big decisions regarding the organization's information framework. It is the CIO's task to make the final decisions regarding the selection and purchasing of IT equipment. The CIO also decides how to install the equipment, when to upgrade and improve the system, and how to integrate all of this into the rest of the company's operations. The CIO is a technologically adept individual who has a thorough and continually evolving understanding of information and communications systems. Beyond the merely technical, the CIO also needs to possess the acumen necessary to make smart and responsible purchasing decisions. Management talents are also needed to ensure that IT teams work in tandem to maintain the entire system.
A chief information officer combines both management and IT talents. Accordingly, those interested in this career path would do well to explore college-level coursework in business management, computer science, and information technology. Employers prefer applicants with at least five years of information technology experience in a management capacity. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
